Acer Aspire Laptop 5332
My partner desperately wanted a laptop as the PC was on its way out, so after looking around a while back I came across the Acer Aspire 5332 for the decent price of £320.00 in Tescos. At the time it was probably one of the cheapest laptops though it certainly wasn't one of the worst.
The screen of the laptop is very clear with great contrast which is great as I love watching programmes online on it and it would have annoyed me to have a blurry screen view. You are also able to move the screen back and forward as on most laptops to provide an even better view. The keyboard is a standard keyboard with well spaced keys for bigger fingers.
In general, I do not like touch-pads as they make my fingers feel weird and usually plug in a USB mouse instead, though for those who do use the touch-pad. It is positioned in the usual area below the space bar and has the left and right buttons as on a normal mouse which makes it easier to use. It is extremely sensitive, though, I find. On trying to move the cursor across the screen, I often find myself accidentally pressing it which becomes annoying and heightens my need of a real mouse.
The sound quality is not fantastic, though is passable. It does not go very loud so we use external speakers to enhance this. If alone in a quiet room then in general, it is not too bad though certainly not five star quality.
The battery life on the laptop is generally quite good and lasts for a few hours, though we do the wrong thing and use it plugged in most of the time which can actually damage the battery after prolonged use like this so be warned!
You have the general things on this laptop which you would expect to see on laptops of this kind such as a CD/DVD drive (situated on the right side of the laptop), USB port, card reader etc.
Overall, I think this laptop is a great buy. Its price is a good one and it has everything you need for your basic computer needs.
Summary: A really good laptop
