The Acer Aspire 5750 comes equipped with the power of the Intel Core i5 processor, designed to give you the ultimate in multitasking performance so you can work faster and have more fun, with less waiting. As well as faster performance, this processor enables better playback of high-definition content over the Internet, and allows you to enjoy the full Windows 7 Aero experience on your laptop.

The Intel Core i5 processor also includes Intel Turbo Boost Technology 2.0. This revolutionary technology dynamically boosts performance and energy efficiency when and where you need it most. By automatically increasing the processor frequency based on the workload and operating environment, you can get the power to perform the tasks that you need whilst seamlessly allowing inactive cores to lay dormant, meaning that they draw less power - increasing your battery life and reducing your carbon footprint.

The Acer Aspire 5750 also includes fast DDR3 memory, which offers twice the speed of DDR2, ensuring faster, more efficient multitasking. Add that to a large-capacity hard disk drive that provides generous storage for work and multimedia files, and you've got a notebook that can handle almost any task you care to throw at it.

Fantastic Graphics and Playback

Movies, Internet video, pictures and more shine brilliantly on Aspire Series notebooks, and HDMI® connectivity extends the spectacle to larger displays.

The Acer Aspire 5750 notebook comes with a high-definition 15.6" Acer CineCrystal LCD display that presents crystal-clear imagery and text, while LED-backlit technology enables the display to consume less power. A widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio increases the viewing area while a high resolution displays breathtaking visuals in high definition for productive on-the-go multitasking.

Perfect for connecting to a big-screen HDTV, plugging a HDMI cable into your notebook allows the transmission of both audio and high-definition video, up to a 1080p resolution. You'll find lots of compatible HDMI devices are now available, or already in your home, so the Aspire 5750 will fit perfectly into your digital life.

Even the best graphics can lack a certain something if your sound quality is poor. That's why the Aspire 5750 includes Dolby Advanced Audio v2. For a full theatre experience, Dolby Advanced Audio v2 provides vibrant, engaging sound over any pair of speakers or headphones - making movies, music and games more realistic.

This is a review for the 6GB RAM, 750GB HDD version of the Acer 5750G with the Intel i5 2430M processor. Amazon don't list this computer as the 5750G (they have it just as the 5750), but that is what it says on the box.
First of all I was surprised by the sturdiness of the laptop, having read several times that Acer can be a bit plasticky. This machine is solid and is also very elegent looking in a mesh black cover. The mesh is to prevent fingerprint marks.
The touchpad pad is very sensitive, almost too sensitive. I prefer to use a mouse. Start up is quick and so is shut down. Getting started for the first time takes about 10 minutes. Acer recommend that the owner create recovery disks in case of future problems. There is a total of about 18GB of information to record. This requires 5 DVD recordable disks. 4 for the factory settings and 1 for the applications and drivers. This all takes about 1 hour.
If you want to install further programs like MS Office or Outlook then the set up time will be longer. This computer does not have Outlook. Outlook is now sold seperately by Microsoft for about £90 for a disk. A lot of MS office programs no longer have Outlook on them.
McAfee Antivirus protection is given free for 2 months.
Initially when I was looking for a new laptop I was considering the Acer 5742Z. But a computer consultant friend of mine pointed out that machine comes with a relatively old core processor. The new core processors are the i3/i5/i7 series which come with various make of laptop. So I chose this laptop instead.
The laptop is quick and quiet.
The sound is Dolby 'surround sound' and it even has its own graphic equaliser. The volume does not go very loud though. But is excellent quality. There are USB ports on both sides of the computer which is useful.

Style Name: Core i5, 6GB, 750GB
I spent a couple of weeks periodically investigating laptop models from various manufacturers and sources, and this one maintained it's place on my wishlist along with one of it's Lenovo equivalents.

I saw some question-mark comments about whether Amazon was selling the 5750g, as spec'ed on this page, or if it was, in fact, the 5750 without the NVidia graphics processor. In the end I decided to order it and consider it a bonus if it was the NVidia chip installed, and so I was really pleased when it arrived, and I found that it is, indeed, the 5750g as detailed.

My first concern on removing the laptop from it's sturdy packaging was that I could hear something small rattling around inside. Having had plenty of prior experience of disassembling and assembling PC's, I removed the screws holding the back cover on the chassis. Trapped within the murky depths was a loose motherboard screw, which plopped out onto the carpet! A little disappointing, but ultimately not a big problem....there's plenty of screws holding a motherboard in place, and it's possible that the one that dropped out was a surplus, dropped inside by a clumsy technician.

I then continued the normal procedure of fitting the battery, plugging in the power supply and "finishing" the Windows setup procedure. Quick and easy, and Win 7 was very quick to finish doing it's jobs. Uninstalling the trial softwares that I don't need (McAffee, Norton storage, Acer Games etc.) was quick and easy, and I had no problem installing the things that I did want.

Connecting to my home internet connection (via cat 5 cable to my netgear router) was way easier than I expected (it did everything itself) and before long I'd installed Google Chrome and iTunes.

So far, everything is working well.

Style Name: Core i5, 6GB, 750GB
Bought a lower spec Acer last Xmas and my husband kept 'borrowing' it, so I decided to treat myself to one I can call my own! This review is for the Acer Aspire 5750 - 6gb Ram/750HDD, i5-2430M processor, there are lots of Aspire 5750 with slightly different spec. I actually bought it elsewhere for £499 so shop around. This is a smart laptop and the 6gb makes a considerable difference in speed compared to the 4gb one last year (bad luck hubby!) I like the Acer keyboard as it's very easy to clean out if you get the odd crumb in it. Having a proper number pad is also useful as I do a lot of spreadsheets. I've never got on with laptop touchpads so I use a mini wireless mouse. Set-up took all of about 10mins including connecting to our wireless network. Comes with McAfee (take it off, it's power hungry and slows everything down) and Norton (similar). I use AntiVir, free and doesn't affect performance. The only negative is a design flaw which might not affect other users. It's that the on/off button is at the very edge on the top left of the keyboard, exactly where I put my hand to move the laptop closer or further away from me. It's also extremeley sensitive to touch. Hence I am getting just a little annoyed at persistently powering down accidentally when I'm in the middle of something.
No other software of any note installed so you'll have to invest in Microsoft Office or something similar, I bought a 3-pc licensed Office 2010 for £95, cheaper than the single pc version!

this laptop is very good for the money. I looked at other laptops and this had to be the best I could find for the specs for £500. its too early to say anything about reliability but its worked fine for over a month although the warranty worries me as it is only for 1 year and the CPU goes to 70C under a high workload so if you get this laptop I suggest you buy a laptop stand with fans to cool it down.

advantages are:
very quick
handles games like minecraft and other resource hungry applications
seems to have stronger WiFi than my old laptop
looks stylish and is fairly lightweight
does not have too much crap installed when you get it

disadvantages are:
CPU gets rather hot
battery life lasts for 2 hours on high performance setting
the textured surface of the lid gets marks on it fairly easily
Microsoft office is not installed on it :(

overall this is a very powerful laptop and the price is lower than what they could charge. a few bad points but the good sides of this laptop make it worth getting. it runs like a dream and I am very pleased with it.
