The Intel inside is the Pentium (Model: T4500) processor.  This is one of Intel’s older dual-core processors, as it was released almost 2 years ago.  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.3GHz.  It has an 800MHz front-side bus and 1MB of L2 cache.  This Aspire uses the Mobile Intel GL40 Express chipset. The laptop comes with 4GB of DDR3 memory and can be expanded to a maximum of 4GB.

The display is a 15.6″ HD widescreen CineCrystal LCD display with a resoltuion of 1366×768 (WXGA).  This is the most common size and resolution in laptops these days.  The display is driven by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M, which uses shared video memory (up to 1759MB allocated from the system memory). The card supports Microsoft DirectX 10 for gaming though with shared memory you probably won’t get great performance on the latest ones.

For storage you get a mid-size 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM.   That’s room for 213k digital photos, 91k songs or 168 hours of HD videos.  Hopefully, that’ll be enough for you.   The optical drive is an 8X DVD-SuperMulti Double-Layer drive for all your CD/DVD needs.  The media card reader is a bit limited and only supports SD and MMC card formats.

For networking you get the basic complement of 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN for wired, and 802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi Certified for wireless.  External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 HDMI port with HDCP support, 1 VGA connector, 1 Headphone/speaker, line-out jack, 1 microphone in jack, 1 RJ-45 LAN connector and a spot to plug the computer in (duh).

This laptop comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit Edition.  Other software includes Microsoft Office Starter 2010, McAfee Internet Security Suite Trial, MyWinLocker, NTI Media Maker, Windows Live Essentials, Cyberlink PowerDVD, Norton Online Backup, and Acer eRecovery.

The laptop measures 15″ x 10″ x 1.3″ and weighs 5.7 pounds.  The laptop comes with a 6-cell Lithium Ion battery pack that can provide up to 3.5 hours of unplugged power.  You also get an AC adapter for when you need to plug it into the wall.

You can find the Acer Aspire AS5736Z-4016 laptop for around  $450.
