Hands on Use
The Acer Aspire 5738PG-6306 packs in some rather nice features at a reasonable price. The machine has good performance as we saw in the benchmarks section and the big draw to this model for most users will be the touch screen technology. I am typically of the opinion that a touch screen is really best suited for a tablet or convertible machines, which the Acer Aspire 5738PG-6306 is not. Still, I found myself liking the touch screen and when on the go without a mouse the touch screen is much easier to use than the track pad in many instances.
The touch screen works well and does exactly what you expect it to do. The only real issue I had with the screen was that I had to touch things a bit above where my eye told me to touch them. The issue was particularly annoying when trying to pick selections from a drop down list online. After using the Acer Aspire 5738PG-6306 for a bit I got used to where you need to touch items to activate them and things went smoothly.
A touch screen is much better in many instances than using a track pad, but when you need a track pad the Acer Aspire 5738PG-6306 has a very good one. The track pad supports gestures for scrolling and zoom. Two fingers scroll, one finger moves the cursor, and pinch gestures zoom in.
The keyboard is the same chicklet keyboard Acer uses on many of its similarly sized notebooks and there is nothing wrong with that. The keyboard has good typing feel and is laid out well with the keys in the correct places. The keyboard also has a full number pad.
The Acer Aspire 5738PG-6306 has a decent sound system that while light on bass, has plenty of volume for movie watching. One of my favorite things about the Acer Aspire 5738PG-6306 is the touch enabled section of the machine with games and other touch centric features in one place. Windows 7 is a great OS for touch navigation.
