Anna , Southampton

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Not the most stylish laptop on the market, but what it doesn't have in street cred and fashion stakes it certainly makes up for in performance and quality. Excellent screen resolution. Easy to use and set up. Good value for money.
Bad points:
Microsoft office is only a trial version, would have liked the full programme to be included in the price of the lap top. Battery only lasts about an hour but not a major problem for me as i only tend to use at home anyway. I found the Acer inbuilt programme for internet connection was interfering with my mobile broadband dongle, but I have resolved this by turning it off.

Confirmed purchaser Music, gaming or video fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good performance with sleek casing. Fast, reliable nad just a solid laptop for all round needs.
Bad points:
My first laptop, so I cant really comment on battery life, but it'll last probably about over 2 hours on Power Saver which doesn't seem overly great.

The fan is on the bottom, so make sure you're resting it on a flat, solid surface otherwise it will overheat and shut down.

Manufacturer's Description

Part of the brand new gemstone range, the Acer Aspire 5520 model combines style and power with its unique design and impressive specs.

Opening the lid, the first thing you come across is a a stunnning 15.4" widescreen which, using Acers Cyrstalbrite technology, gives your films a vibrant, sharp feel. On the lid is a Crystal eye webcam for keeping in contact with work or home and two stereo speakers are placed under the screen for music or film.

It offers an up to the minute Turion dual core processor running at 1.8Ghz and with a massive 4GB Ram already installed, there will be no more waiting around the laptop to boot-up or download.

An overly generous 250GB HDD has been supplied to store all the families pictures, music and video and a DVD drive comes as standard to back them up onto disc.

If that wasn’t enought, the 5520 also comes with a dedicated Nvidea graphics card for gaming needs and a 5 in 1 card reader for quickly transferring your holiday photos from the camera to the screen.

So get yours today as we expect the latest versions of the everpopular gemstone range to sell as quickly as its earlier counterparts.
