The notebook market has become sort of stale lately, as manufacturers fight over price points rather than exciting new concepts, so it's nice to see a new idea once in awhile. Sometimes, being the first to market with an idea can be daunting, users...

Powerful, good-spec, good battery life

Not really portable

Sometimes, being the first to market with an idea can be daunting, users will like the notion but not the implementation. In the case of the Aspire 5652WLMi, Acer hasn’t made a great leap forward in technology, simply in execution.

Acer Aspire 5652WLMI

 

Screen, and balanced performance.

Could do with more USB ports. Getting around this by adding a multiport (£7 - so not a big deal).

Good specification

Heavy, but weights can be compared on-line. Weight is what you get. You have to go for the spec.
