  1. Hi there, i m planning 2 buy a laptop for my electronics and communication engineering . Can any1 suggest one dat has gud graphics for programing and gaming , gud functionality and comes within INR 42000. Thnx

  2. Hi,

    Do we need to install any driver for Dolby Home Theater®/Dolby Pro Logic IIx to work? Coz I’m not experiencing any enhanced sound clarity nor the drivers for dolby are provided by default..

  3. plz gays i brought recently a laptop acer aspire 5738G
    but i cant tirn on it’s bluetooth or open it’s setup plz can anyone help my
    or sending me it’s manual in English as i bought from Italy

  4. Hi!
    I was searching for this computer for quite some time. Can you tell whats the exact cost after all customs & taxes. Please reply a.s.a.p.

  5. I juz bought it sterday (08-01-2010)…

    It costs 40000/- plus 6000 worth accessories… Offer available at Reliance Digital…

  6. I realize you already bought the laptop, but I must add to the discussion of user experience with this laptop. While its features may be good value for money, its usabillity is not. The touchpad is a pain to use compared to my SONY vaio and there is a scroll function on the touchpad to its right which if lightly touched with the palm of he hand, closes whatever window you’re in. I’ve lost apprx 10 email messages while i was in the middle of composing them because of this.

    It’s colours are great for multimedia, but unfortunately, the DVD I put into it got stuck several times in the title menu. Putting the same DVD into my sony vaio, I saw i worked just fine.

    I feel tht its functionality does not complement its built in fetures however great they may be. Everyone should try using the model on display in a store before purchasing it.

  7. thanks prabhu for your reply. so the dvd which we create is a windows 7 dvd or just an backup? is there ant way that i can get an original CD from acer.

  8. Hi sivakumar,

  16. Hello,

    I am buying a laptop for study and communication purpose and of course a wee bit of entertainment as well. Have narrowed down to Acer Aspire 5738G. A cousin of mine has offered to pick up one for me from Dubai. I have a few questions for Acer Aspire 5738G owners, and would be much oblidged to recieve answers and their buying and ownership experiences.

    1) Is the build quality of the laptop good and sturdy?
    2) Is the quaity and resolution of the LED screen good and comparable with the likes of Sony or Dell?
    3) Does the laptop get too hot? I read somewhere that Acer laptops have a genetic problem of overheating…
    4) What is the best price of this laptop in Chennai, India? It is a value for money laptop at that price?
    5) How good is the Acer after sales service and support?
    6) Hows the wireless adapter? Efficient?
    7) At 2.8 KGS is it too heavy?
    One good reason WHY I SHOULD NOT BUY this laptop?

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Thanks & regards,


  17. the diffrence between ddr2 ddr3 is the type of ram the higher the number the faster and better the type and speed of ram.
