Only £399

When I first heard about this laptop I was instantly intrigued by the impressive specification and even better price of just £399, the spec really is good (not just for the money either).  The first thing you will notice about the acer 5520 laptop is its fast processor and generous amount of RAM. 

 The preinstalled 3 GB of ram is more than man enough to run Vista premium and to be honest makes vista seem less power hungry than it is – it basically runs as it should which believe me is not the case for many other laptops in this price bracket.

The 5520 also has a healthy sized 160 GB hard drive and a NVIDIA GeForce 7000M graphics card, this is not a dedicated graphics card but rest assured it will run vista and dvd’s in crystal quality with no problems at all.

The laptop also comes with a built in web cam which integrates easily with Yahoo and MSN messenger, it uses crystal eye technology to deliver a crisp and clear picture. This laptop also includes all the standard features that have become common in all modern laptops, this includes wireless technology and a DVD player/writer combo drive.

In summary this budget laptop will easily replace your desktop pc and effortlessly allow you to complete your day to day tasks, edit photos, watch dvd’s and even connect to the internet on the move. Being an acer battery life is also quite good (around 3 hours). For £399 this laptop really is a quality piece of technolgy.  We love the white keyboard with balck gloss outer styling to 😉 Very modern!

    Does anyone know if the Acer 5520 has the bluetooth kit built in. I have the drivers and yet when I press the bluetooth button the response “no bluetooth device present”.

    It is somewhat bizare…why put a non-functional button…

    Thanks
