AMD has always played it closer to the lower end of the budget spectrum, offering decent performance at a competitive price, and this is continued in the Acer Aspire 5530G. Acer is moreover quite well known for its competitively priced offerings and this Puma based Acer Aspire 5530G is no different. Retailing at a very affordable S$ 1498, the unit is well worth the cash for its entertainment features, solid build and overall decent (for its specs) performance capability.
