Acer Aspire 5738G unboxing video

The Acer Aspire range is no stranger to us as we’ve reviewed several models in the past and have also owned previous Acer models so I was pleased to accept the Aspire 5738G when Acer asked me if I’d like to review it.

In general the laptop or notebook PC market is a pretty saturated place, dozens of manufacturers having dozens of models available at any one time means there is a great deal of choice and competition for your business.

So how does the Aspire 5738 hope to grab your attention?

Firstly this is no tiny netbook affair, the 5738 features a 15.6″ (1366 x 768) high-brightness TFT Widescreen display which is a TriDef 3D screen and comes with 3D polarized glasses for viewing 3D effects. This in itself was not something that I’d seen before and upon initial inspection I thought that the glasses in the box had been left by a previous reviewer by mistake!

In terms of specification (which you can see below) the Aspire should deliver. The model we have is a Core Duo 2.0GHz model with 1066MHz FSB and 4GB of RAM so we’re expecting good things from it.

We’ll be reviewing the Aspire 5738G over the next few weeks and we’ll let you know what we thought of it, especially the 3D display! Take a look at the brief unboxing video below for a quick tour of the hardware.
