Acer Aspire 5750g Review

Based on NotebookCheck Review on this laptop, one of the reviews caught my attention before I bought this laptop. It says, If you don't want to pay a high price for a high-end processor like the Sandy Bridge Core i7, the Aspire 5750G is a way to get the performance and reasonable battery life, without breaking the budget. You're not paying for unusually fancy design (although we think the blue case is stylish) and you're getting most of what you need, including a decent keyboard and good graphics. The screen is slightly disappointing and we'd like to see more than one USB 3.0 port, but it had the rest of the spec to match the processor you'd be paying rather more than this. This notebook makes Core i7 definitely affordable.

Yes, indeed. This laptop is the best bang for buck. If and only if you trust in Acer products. I've been using Acer laptops since Year 2008. My old laptop was using a Core 2 Duo T6500 2.1GHz and Nvidia Geforce G105M Graphic. Now, my sister is still using it. No problems so far. It shows that Acer laptop can actually have a very long life span if we take care of it a lot.

Now, let's get back to the topic. This laptop was actually an impulse buy because it was a gift from my parents as I achieved Straight A in my SPM. That was funny. I was requesting for a PS3 but then, I changed my mind to buy this 5750g instead. I need it for college life. Bought it at RM2899 and the laptop comes with a lot of free gifts.

I don't experience heat problems with my laptop. After gaming for one hour, Battlefield Bad Company 2 or Call of Duty Black Ops, I can feel heat on the left palm rest area. This is normal because my friend's XPS 15 is also experiencing the same thing. GT540M is just good enough to run latest games at high resolutions and medium settings. In my opinion, GT540M users should turn off some eye candy graphics settings in games, for examples, Shadows, AA, Motion Blur, Post Processing. This is to ensure a pretty smooth frame rate when playing new games at high resolutions.

I will be updating this blog with gameplay reviews and settings with this laptop's graphic card. Anyway, more photos here. Thats all from me. I suck at writing reviews. K thanks.

Is it the i5 or i7 processor you have?
