I first got this laptop early in January 2010, i had extra money left over from Christmas and was in need of a new system as my last laptop had previously over heated and the hardware had started to melt... but that's another story.
I spent days trawling through thousands of laptops on the internet, all flawed in there own way, then imagine my delight when i found this one for just £450!
2.2GHz Duel core processor (fast enough to run the majority of games)
Nvidea Geforce Gt 240M one hell of a graphics card to be found in a laptop computer, again capable of running all most all games on high quality
a massive 320GB hard drive which i have yet to half fill
4 GBs of ram and a massive 17.3" HD+ screen
and the killer feature, a blu ray disk player, i really wasn't expecting to find this at the price i paid for it, seeming as at the time blue ray players where still going for £150+
There where however a couple of drawbacks to my purchase, the major one being that the company i bought it from (www.laptopsdirect.co.uk) delivered me a dead model... but it is safe to presume that this is NOT a recurring theme, they paid to pick it up and replace it within a week with a working model.
The second drawback was that it shipped with windows Vista instead of windows 7 as windows 7 was still in its beginning phase when the laptop was released, i however took part in a windows 7 upgrade scheme with the manufacturers Acer and received windows 7 for just £12
My last issue with this product is the touch sensitive volume controls to the right of the keyboard, they are not quite sensitive enough in some areas causing them to jump between the high volume and the low volume a bit franticly.
Overall i would give this product 9/10, as a hardcore pc gamer i would like a slightly better graphics card and better volume controls.
The Aspire 7738 delivers high-def imagery on an extremely roomy 17.3" 16:9 display and features cutting-edge surround sound with Dolby audio enhancement. Enjoy entertainment bliss and experience creative productivity features from the best in the business!
