Full review: Budget Core i3 touchscreen laptop

Acer Aspire 5745PG 5464G32Mn review

 

Incredible power and Optimus graphical performance from this updated mid-priced laptop

Optimus technology ; Sharp, vibrant screen ; Solid Core i5 performance ; Highly usable ; Bluetooth 3.0

Touch controls pointless ; Reflective display ; Flat keyboard won' t suit all tastes ; Not the most portable laptop

We recently reviewed the Acer Aspire 5745PG-354G32Mn, a mid-priced touchscreen laptop that impressed us with its solid performance and build quality. The Aspire 5745PG-5464G32Mn is an update of that model, with a boost in power courtesy of a Core i5...

Poor software lets down some clever touchscreen technology in an otherwise decent mid-range laptop.

Acer Aspire 5745

 

An excellent all-round laptop that is certainly worth buying if you need something that is powerful, nearly-portable and not too expensive.

Sharp screen, Touch screen controls are an added benefit

2.7kg is rather heavy, 3 hour battery life certainly takes away from the portability of this laptop

Acer Aspire 5745PG

 

This is exactly what a modern notebook should be, well specified and easy to use. The latter is handled by it having a full suite of touch modules built it so things that used to need the mouse can now be completed using your fingers.

Going round the connections, the left side has VGA out, HDMI out, Ethernet, microphone and earbud 3.5mm sockets. The front has a multi card socket while the right side has three further USB ports the DC input and a DVD reader/writer. One point with...

Acer Aspire 5745PG review

 

Touch screens are everywhere. From tablets to smartphones, we're getting used to the idea of using our fingers to manipulate on-screen controls.

Good touch screen, excellent keyboard Cons: Battery life a little short side; weighty

Battery life a little short side; weighty

The Aspire 5745PG combines excellent touch-screen capabilities with solid hardware, an excellent keyboard and great connectivity options. While it's not ideally suited for use on the move due to its size, weight and short battery life, it's definitely...

Acer - Aspire 5745PG

 

Acer's Aspire family of notebooks continues to mushroom and it's not hard to spot what the principal selling point of the 5745PG model is from the second it's been powered up: its considerable touch screen capability. ...

Smart, with a profoundly user-friendly keyboard and exceptionally efficient multi-touch screen capabilities, the Acer Aspire 5745PG should be a valuable companion for any business person on the move, despite its rather short battery life.

Acer Aspire AS5745-7247

 

Battery life is a concession, but only if you're comparing it with the Acer AS5820T-5951, which comes with a big 62WH battery. The AS5745-7247 uses the same 48WH battery as the Acer AS5741Z (4 hours 20 minutes) and Lenovo Z560 (4:03), but lasted longer...

Bargain price. Fast Core i3 processor. Great battery scores. Whopping 640GB of storage. Lightweight. Excellent user experience

Last year's design

The Acer Aspire AS5745-7247 is one sweet laptop deal, putting in parts and features you don't normally get at these prices.
