I have the Aspire 5742-7120 with the Intel Core I3-370, 4GB of ram, etc., etc.... It is a great laptop. It is very fast and does all that I ask of it (large spreadsheets, internet, uploading, downloading, etc.). The only complaint I have is that the webcam does not work properly. Not a big nit as I really have no use for it anyway.
I would recommend an Intel processor, Core I3-370 or above.
Buy it. I hope you enjoy it.

I bought a new Acedr laptop 5742-6638 from Office Max and love it. I got a great deal on it. It came with an Intel I5-480 processor, 640GB HD,15.6 HD LED LCD,wireless and Bluetooth, an SD slot, HDMI slot, 3 SB slots and Windows 7 Home Premium. I would recommend this to anyone.
