  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,

    2.NVIDA ? please clear my doubt….


  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.

    thanks for all ur comments
    and i need a reply as soon as possible

  46. Hi All,
    For those looking forward to buy a laptop for a mediocre use I, own an Acer Aspire 5738G is the best cos I, in comparison to all the others in the current market this one makes it practical with what one really wants for the price tag. Moreover I, Personally have kept my Aspire5738 Running nonstop for 8 long days and it still rocks no jokes so people just consider the same is model it’s a real value for money and more over u don’t need more technology. I reckon ur not a rocket scientist to work zillions of computing applications for its processor to handle the same. This is one happy customer helping the one who is caught in an act of contemplation which bloody model to buy and which one is the beast……

  47. acer 5738g is a good laptop it is avaliable around 41000 . it is best for its price . it had nvidia 512 graphic card so its display is supports bluray disk even but in it has ddr3 technology which is latest and in even dell is using ddr2 but acer is using advanced version.and the same laptop in hp costs around 58000 so i prefer acer.>>>

  48. Who says that hp have blue ray in the price range of 44,000/-… 😮

    there is no such model of hp…
    N for the price tag of 40000 acer 5738g is the best u can get…
    For the price above 45000 either go for hp dv5 1110ax or dell studio…
    N the cheapest laptop with blue ray is acer 5739g(49000) which is a awesome laptop….

    The grapics card g105m is a low mid range card..n yeah it plays max payne smoothly…n it plays all d latest games in low mid setting..

  49. acer5738G is a great laptop im currently using it.Arun might be likin HP because currenly he might be using it!!!!it has all d latest features at affordable prices.AND A VERY INPORTANT THING the features that r in acer i saw in HP bt it costed around 53,000RS and acer cost me 42,000 only…so make a right choice

  50. Can I know in what colours aser aspire 5738 is available in the Indian market and which price plz send me detail for this laptop in my mail id i am student of b-tech plz sir send detail plz plz plz plz plz…………..

  51. i wanna buy a gamin lappy , in around 40k, plz sujjest me a gud 1!

    n i heart d acer has nvdia graphics, isnt dat gud?

  52. hi rony,of course this model has some issuesbut to your quoted price you can get only lenovo Y330-2269-25Q.It has only 2GB RAM.It costs around Rs39000.Tell me one thing whether do u need a lappy for games r else for home use?

  53. hi chaps,

    one more thing abt the hp dv6-1211ax notebook,the best competitor to this acer model has one more advantage.Actually most of the Intel processors won’t support virtualization.This problem was solved by AMD.So only high end models costing more than 50 grands will be having virtualization technology in Intel.This hp model,with AMD has the virtualization concept..You can check whether your intel processor supports virtualization or not.Check out this link

    type your model in the search content of the above denoted site & check it supports virtualization or not.

    Then one more shocking news for the game lovers is that this acer model doesn’t have the express slot feature.So due to this external graphics card(Asus XG Station) cannot be used if you want to upgrade your graphics in the near future.So this advantage is available in hp model dv6-1211ax……..So ? better rush………

  54. This is the worst laptop since acer doesn’t have good display quality compared to any other competitive brands.Instead of choosing this you can better go for a hp dv6-1211ax,latest one oh hp that comes with AMD 2.2 turion.Most of them think that the processor gets heated since AMD but this AMD,latest 64-bit is equal to Intel’s core 2 duo which has the ability to run high end applications,FSB-4000 which is 4 times the Intel which allows you to write data faster to disk compared to intel.BTW…..this hp has 1gb ati 4650 dedicated graphics,mid range graphics which is even better compared to nvidia high end graphics.You can see the benchmark of this ati graphics in the below denoted link…..FYI…….

    One more thing is that this hp model has blu-ray,a latest technology.So while choosing better go for this hp model compared to acer……….The price of this notebook is Rs.44000 only.So instead of buying acer you can go for a hp.This my suggestion

  55. Acer 5738g is one of the best laptop i have seen. It is having DDR3 Ram which is nice 🙂 . Apart from that It is having GeForce CUDA with 512mb RAM. You have to only buy this laptop and upgrade it’s driver and application. See the windows gaming rating it is much better than Dell Studio 15.

  56. hey friend …..plzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz tell me is it better than dell studio 15 ………….and plz tell me about any problem in it …….becoz i have to buy soon a lappy……and my father has no black money so plzzzzz tell

  57. Hi every one,iam planning to buy a laptop worth rs38000,but which one i dont know?I want a core2duo centrino processor with 2ghz or higher,and a HDD of 320gb and RAM about 3gb,graphics card of 256 or higher.pls respond immediately.i heard about acer but every one is saying that it has got some problems

  58. can any1 plz tel me hw to activate bluetooth in acer aspire 5738G Core2DuoT6500.coz wen i activate it ….msg comes like no service is found.


    I HAVE BOUGHT 5738G IN BANGALORE rs 40500(incluging)1000rs gift

  60. acer 5738g has DDR3 ram(1067MHz) but slow processor(800 MHz FSB) compared to that…so can any1 explain this?????????

  61. Hey Ankush

    I have got the same prob of the bluetooth and the wifi as well which is not getting activated. I was with the prob with the drivers in my case and seen the same case with one of my friend as well.

    It is good to check out those and install them from the acer technician asap.

  62. Hey Michael,

    I too got the same with some 6 accessories at the price of 40K in Pune and my friend got it for 40.9 K in chennai.

    get the best bargain from the dealer.

  63. Does the graphic card renders enough frames/sec to play games like GTA 4, Left 4 Dead, Crysis, Doom, etc.? These games are played in average configuration in 5536G, which has ATI radeon 4570

  64. Hi, purchased the laptop at Dotcom Shanthi Colony Annanagar, Chennai. 5738G Core2DuoT6500 for Rs. 42800 with 6 accessories. Very good laptop for its configuration and price. Battery back up mentioned is 3 hours 45 mins and with use 3 hours so Im sure this is more than enough. Nothing looks as good on paper or in view or price as of now. So don’t hesitate, buy it and enjoy… The lappie is great!!! Dell costly as HELL! HP u’ll have to go home without your clothes… that costly… bring a big handkerchief… Acer rough use gaming office use whatever it holds clean so just go for it…

  65. i want 2 purchase a laptop.
    who’s the best
    dell 15
    hw is its battery bak up…..
    what about service center

  66. i think it comes with either LED or TFT LCD Display.
    LED Display one is better and comparable with Dell studio.
    Shopkeepers may lower price for LCD One.
    There is wast difference in image / display quality between these variants, be Cautious.
    Pl reply to me

  67. Hello Everyone,

    Ankush Mehta.

  68. I am planning to buy 5738G.
    I have heard tht the speakers stop working and need to be changed
    The battery life is also bad.
    Can some 1 please share ur experience on this..

  69. I have heard tht the speaker stop working of Aspire 5738G.
    And the battery backup also is not good.
    Can soem 1 share ur experience on this?

  70. @tirthraj
    which type of editing..
    For video editing ya its ok or u cud prefer 5739g which is hvin bettr graphics card with blue ray drive

  71. Price in pune..
    Acer 5738g rs. 39,500
    acer 5536g rs. 31,000 inc of taxes..
    5536g has better gfx card… Cmpared to 5738g
    battery life of 5738g is better >2.30hrs

  72. is there any kind of problems associated with acer?i mean i may get a DELL within this range(with some decreased features).How has been the performance of this model?

  73. hey guys just got one from hyderabad for 39500/- after seeing your reviews….nice deal guys …. really cool piece it is

  74. hey kunal 5738g is better compared to studio 15..
    the reason is studio has ati raedon 512 which heats up very soon as compared to 5738g and studio 15 is bulky also and heavy…for around 42k its the best deal.

  75. Hi I have this laptop as option but as I need the laptop mainly for business use. I am seeing the option of buying Acer Travemate 4720. Its Price including taxes comes to Rs 39000/- only. But the config is far better than Acer 5738G.
    I am getting Acer Travemate 4720 config in dotcom Spencer Plaza as follows: Intel Core2Duo T7500(2.2 Ghz, 4Mb Cache) 320 Gb HDD, 3 GB RAM, bluetooth, infrared port, Wifi, Card reader, webcam. Only thing I will miss in this laptop is that it does not have WIFI- N draft, HDMI port, eSATA, and Dolby Speaker as the Acer 5738G and dedicated Graphics. But the processor of the latter is really robust.

  76. 5738G Price in Acer Showroom in Chennai

    5738G with DVD Drive Rs. 43000/-
    5738G with Blue-Ray Drive Rs. 52000/-

    Offer includes 2GB pen drive
    Headphone with Mic
    USB mouse

    5738G Price at Ritchie Street (Stock is a problem due to demand)

    5738G with DVD Drive Rs. 41300/- Best price

    Lotus Computers 04442131922.

    Ask if possible to get for 41000/-

  77. Okay First things first… According to price tag and specifications. As of July 2009, this is THE BEST laptop for its price. Ultimate combination of Personal (read Business) and Entertainment/Gaming Capabilities) DELL is costlier and some specs differ or are optional only adding to the price tag pushing it past 50k.. Those who are not rolling in black money and well are too poor to buy a laptop at below the 40k mark, then the options are different. Black money guys or guys rolling in their dad’s hard earned cash can go in for Falcon or Alienware extreme laptops and my just need a BASIC laptop brethren can go in for Acer Aspire One or any of the other laptops which are pretty much the same specs in the Netbook category.. Each company has a competitive price, just choose which is more value for money… That’s about it for now. I think I might be going for the 5738G if its below 40k with Vista Home Premium OS or else will have to go in for 5738Z which I think in Chennai comes up to around INR 36500/- Depends on what my CREDIT CARD allows!!! : P hahahahaha… Ah Well its for professional purposes well to get rid of the debts, but looks like the end of the world might come before I’m out of debt… Ah maybe in 2039 knowing our credit card departments… Well It was nice knowing you friends… ; )

  78. Is the 5738G (available in India) is having Blue Ray DVD reader along with the 8X dual layer DVD-RW? Is there any Liunux or DOS model available of 5738G (with 512MB Graphics)?

    Please tell me ASAP.

  80. Hi guys, don’t confuse with this model. It is realy nice and wonderful. My friend bought this brand by spending only 2400 QR (INR 32,000!!!!!!amazing)here in Qatar. And he never experienced any problem from this product. This featured has many advantages like you can play Blue-Ray Discs along with Lightscribe facility. You can buy this product from any of the Lulu Hyper markets. Enjoy!!!!!!!

  81. hey people let me tell u something no electronic item is perfect even if u r goin to buy a sony or any other “hi-fi” brands there is a very small chance u might get a product that gives u trouble. so Naveen try asking for a replacement if u get troubles. but overall this laptop seems to be good i guess.

  97. Guys,

    I bought the laptop…i really liked the configuration of the laptop….its sturdy…..its durable…i have been using it for almost 4 months now…and its great…i am a gamer and the screen size (widescreen) doesn’t really give the “laptop feeling”…. it came with Vista Home Premium….i installed Win 7 and XP and i do it almost every 5 days….and that system has never given me any kind of problems……its supports almost every normal operation that anyone could perform. …. its has a strong configuration and has really helped me a lot….the best buy as of now….!!!!

  98. Apparently, acer laptop is not built right because i am experiencing the same problem as experienced by one ‘Naveen’ is this site. As he said, the laptop shuts down automatically as he mentioned each time i am playing a game.

  99. @ kevan
    Man……..having 4GB DDR3 RAM & C2D , still you need MORE Speed ??????????
    Its Unbelievable !!!

    BTW how is this lappy……..should i go 4 it or have a DELL Inspiron 15 ?

  100. I’m confused in Zenith Director Plus Ultra, Dell Studio 15, and Acer 5738g.
    All 3 of them have nearly the same configuration.

    Which 1 would u suggest me ?

  101. i am confused whether to tke Dell Inspiron 1545 or ACer 5738 G labtop. I am worried abt look of acer . Dell labtop are glossy in look with good service and its name is good one. Aver has 4 GB ram , 512 MB graphics

  102. Can any one tell me about acer aspire 5738g
    I am going to buy it within one week but i am in confusion that it is good for gaming or not.

    and thanks for good review and good picture
    i was finding it for a week and i found it
    once again thanks…

  104. I hav this one .It cost me exact 42k including vat form nahru place (delhi). but bag was not included with this price.

  105. Dear Naveen
    I’m also contemplating to buy the same model. But after ur experience I’ll have to rethink about it. Could u pls tell me which city are u based? kindly also reveal the dealership from which u purchased it, so others could avoid it.
    Would Aspire 5739g be a better choice?
    If others can also share their sweet/bitter relation with the brand it will help a lot.

  106. dont buy this model i bought for 40,500 INR and its worse laptop i have ever come across it will automatically shutdown while playing any game,i have contacted customer support and its been 10 days they are not able to resolve it and they told me they gonna replace only the mother board im pissed with it its the worse one,i am advicing with my personal experience

  107. I saw the Acer Aspire 5738G Model at Jumbo Electronics, Lucknow.
    Its price was 45k.
    with the same specs given above.
