The Good Decent construction given the price. Admirable battery life.

The Bad Small delay when using touch pad. 2GB of RAM could be a little limiting.

The Bottom Line The Aspire 5750 is a modest computer, but for AU$599, we can find very little to complain about. If you're on a tight budget and have basic expectations, it'll serve you well.

There are people who only need the most basic of basic laptops, and the Acer Aspire 5750 is that.

Containing a less-than-average 2GB of RAM, Intel HD Graphics and a Core i3 2350M, it employs Acer's "floating keyboard" tech, with island-based keys that are raised significantly above the surface. In practice, we feel that it slows down our typing, but it feels fine after an initial period of adjustment.

The touch pad is slick, although it doesn't seem as responsive as it should, even with sensitivity set to its highest. It's almost as if there's a small delay there, causing a brief disconnect with your brain. It uses an Elan pad, meaning that you can assign a simultaneous double finger tap to load the right-click menu.
