Acer Aspire 5942G-524G64Bn - 15.6in Laptop

 

A feature-rich multimedia laptop packing a Blu-ray ROM drive, Intel Core i5 CPU and a 640GB hard drive.

Aside from the merely average display, the Acer Aspire 5942G offers the performance and features of a laptop that could cost a lot more. If you're after a high-performance Blu-ray laptop and aren't too concerned about having a top-notch screen to go...

A feature-packed media centre and one of the most powerful laptops around

Acer Aspire 5942G review

 

The Acer Aspire 5942G is a powerful laptop for gaming and multimedia, featuring Blu-ray playback and DirectX 11 graphics, and all for under £1000.

It’s chunky and covered in go-faster stickers to attract Dixons grazers, but at heart the Acer 5942G is a powerhouse of a laptop, and well suited to modern gaming and sundry entertainment purposes. Construction is heavy but solid, and there’s enough...

Laptop or Desktop : Acer Aspire 5942G

 

The dividing line between desktop systems and their laptop brethren is becoming increasingly blurred as manufacturers incorporate more power, functionality and features into their portable offerings.

Beneath the keyboard is the touchpad. This is a combination multi-gesture unit. You have two-finger scroll, pinch, rotate and flip for those who like to put their twitchy fingers to good use. The Single button bar features a centrally mounted...

Acer Aspire 5942G-464G64Bn
