Fantastic Laptop; Fantastic Spec; Fantastic Brand,
This review is from: Acer Aspire 5750 15.6 inch Laptop (Intel Core i5-2430M Processor, RAM 8GB, HDD 500GB, DVD-Super Multi DL Drive, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit) (Personal Computers)
I have had this laptop for almost a year now & it has never let me down. Nor for the matter have the other 2 Acer latops in our family. I admit quite proudly I am a firm Acer brand fan.
This particular model has a great spec. The 500 Gb hard drive is I suppose moderate in size now, but more than ample for my needs. The Intel i5 chip is good & the 8Mb of RAM is fantastic for the music creation software I run. For playing DVDs, the screen is clear & bright. My model did not come loaded with tons of bloatware & I have tried to keep it relatively free of unnecessary applications. The keyboard is good with an integral numeric keypad on the right, which I like a lot. I even like the touchpad on this model - normally I hate touchpads.
Okay now the gripes. Yes the power switch, which is located on the top left corner is badly placed. My previous laptop had it in the middle where it was much less likely to get knocked accidently. I have unwittingly switched the computer off by brushing against the switch - it is quite sensitive. However, it's hardly something that happens frequently, and quite honestly if it kept happening then it would be my fault for not learning to steer clear of it. The other gripe for me personally is the fact that it only has 3 USB ports, but I guess most of the time that would be enough anyway.
Overall the gripes in no way detract from the 5 star rating I have given it. Just remember to shop around, as there are quite a range of different price tags for it out there!
