Acer Aspire 5750 review
Acer has produced some excellent mid-range laptops recently, and the Aspire 5750 looks to be no exception. On paper, the Core i5 processor, massive 8GB of RAM and spacious 500GB hard disk should be hard to beat for the price, but look past the high base specs and this laptop is a bit more basic.
The silver metallic-effect chassis has seen a slight revamp over last year’s models, but still looks fairly generic and the 5750 looks more at home in the office than it does in the home. It isn’t particularly well suited to taking on the move either - at 2.5kg you’ll notice it in your laptop bag. Connectivity is also fairly basic with three USB ports, a multi-format card reader and a DVD optical drive all that you get, with no USB3 or integrated Bluetooth.
However, once we started to use the laptop, our initial concerns over its appearance disappeared. The 15in screen might only have the usual 1,366x768 resolution, but images looked sharp and there was plenty of contrast. The glossy display causes a fair amount of reflections, but there’s more than enough screen tilt to stop this from becoming a problem. Viewing angles were about average, considering the screen uses a standard TN panel.
The speakers placed just above the keyboard might carry a Dolby advanced audio logo, but they weren’t much better than any other laptop. There was still a lack of bass and high-end notes were sharp, although the mid-range was reasonably clear.
We were soon typing at full speed using the Chiclet-style full size keyboard. Each key has plenty of room around it and there’s lots of tactile feedback. It's certainly comfortable enough to type long documents on. The smooth touchpad directly below the keyboard felt very responsive and, although we would have preferred two physical buttons over the single rocker bar used here, it works rather well with only a small dead spot in its centre.
very good performance, good battery back (on customized power saver plans)

Very bad quality with a high price!.. there're many more better alternatives in the market.Acer 5750 has very slow performance,very bad keyboard with no Caps Lock led and no touch buttons for Multimedia,No Led for Num Lock !!! .. very slow running basic programs (internet browsers for instance) !! . Battery is not a pro because it's like any other Lap (2-2.5 hrs max) ..ummm guys please stay away from Acer (cheap) material which costs (expensive prices) !

in terms of battery life, when i'm on the road I give presentations to clients and don't want to embarrassment of my laptop dying,
using basic office applications, how long is the battery life?
