PTF, Staffs Business user

Score 7.0/10
Good points:
Square framed screen and textured matt casing seems more robust than the shiny, rounded 5740 Aspire I had prior.
Performance is good with an OK graphics NVIDIA GT420M
Bad points:
As I can't do without a laptop and extensive experience with Acer, this 5742G was bought to replace a 5740 which developed a video hardware fault and would have to go away for several weeks for repair.
However, the 5742G came with a sticky key!
The warranty return process to Acer's contracted repair centre in Plymouth is very complicated, won't allow return in the original box and only after you get past some people in a call centre in India who at times are quite arrogant, unfriendly and don't seem to have very good English on 3 experiences so far.
You have to contact DHL yourself which the first Indian guy didn't even tell me about!
I have to go through this hassle now with 2 laptops!

Margaret, Leicester General home user

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Nice looking with sleek lines. Good graphics especially good for the adventure games I play.

I like everything about this laptop. It's not one of the lightest laptops but as I use mine mainly in the home its not an issue for me.

I can't comment on the battery life as I use mains electricity and so have removed the battery.

Typists may find that the keyboard is a little 'clacky', but this is a minor detail when weighed against everything else.

I've had no problems with shine on the screen, its just a matter of positioning when in strong light.

Mousepad is quite sensitive but you soon get the hang of how much pressure to use (hardly any!)

This is my second Acer laptop, I bought my first one nearly 6 years ago and its still in use now, apart from me ruining the battery on it (long story) there has been no problems with it at all.
Bad points:
Perhaps a bit on the heavy side if you need to carry it around a lot. Typists may find the keyboard a bit 'clacky'
