It may be worthwhile to go through the individual components of Acer AS5736Z-4427

Processor

The Dual Core T4500 that powers the Acer AS5736Z-4427 Laptop is a 2.30 GHz dual core processor. It belongs to the earlier intel architectures that did not have the integrated memory controller as in the newer Intel Core i3 processor. The processor should be good for most of your home and office needs.

RAM and Hard Disk

The Acer AS5736Z-4427 comes with a paltry 4 GB of RAM and a 250 GB of hard disk. While 2 GB is still good enough for most of your entry level works, you may feel sluggishness, in case you are opening several programs with large memory footprint and if you are switching between them. But you should be fine if you mostly do word processing, emailing and surfing. We do not see any much complain with small 250 GB hard disk, since most of us will not be using even that much of the space.

Display

Acer Acer AS5736Z-4427 has 15.6″ LCD screen that comes with a screen resolution of 1366 x 768.

Connectivity and other features

The notebook comes with 3 USB connectors. A Microphone and Headphone out are provided as in most other notebooks. The VGA Connectors can be used to project the screen contents on a office projector or can be seen on a larger monitor.

Bottom Line

We have hesitation in recommending Acer AS5736Z-4427, even at its low cost at around $425. It has small memory ( 2 GB), a relatively old intel dual core processor. You may also like to explore some other notebooks powered by the intel core i3 processors and with 3 GB RAM. You may be able to find something for $50 or so extra.
