Acer Aspire 5920

 

Acer revamps its Aspire range for Santa Rosa, and does a great job.

Acer's Aspire 5920 hits a great sweet spot between price, design and functionality. It might not be most portable of beasts, but it should serve as a great desktop replacement which can be wheeled around the house for all sorts of functions. The low...

Acer Aspire 5920G laptop

 

Notebooks are evolving and no more so than in their presentation. Acer has been making a lot of noise about the design of the new Aspire line and while it's a sturdy enough design, it does have a love it or loath it factor that will split opinion.

Decent battery, powerful specification

Average screen quality

Acer has been making a lot of noise about the design of the new Aspire line and while it’s a sturdy enough design, it does have a love it or loath it factor that will split opinion.

Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone review

 

For a start, there's no compromising on the CPU, as the Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone comes with a fully fledged 2GHz Core 2 Duo T5750. This has twice as much Level 2 cache memory as the Pentium dual-core CPUs often found in budget laptops. It also has a...

The Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone's white insides and gimmicky interior won't be to everyone's tastes, but if you can forgive that then this is a fast, well-featured laptop for just under £400.

Acer Aspire 5920 Intel Santa Rosa Laptop

 

The Acer Aspire 5920 is a smart laptop which includes Intel's much-vaunted Santa Rosa Centrino chipset.

It's not the most portable of laptops but the Acer Aspire 5920 is powerful, looks smart and offers a decent collection of features for the price. The new Intel Santa Rosa technology looks to be working well, and the impressive audio quality and...

Acer Aspire 5920G laptop PC

 

Armed with a fast processor and solid speakers, the £799 inc VAT Acer Aspire 5920G is great for both work and entertainment.

This Windows Vista Ultimate home notebook lacks bundled applications, but it has power and style to spare. Short-list the Acer Aspire 5920G if you're on the prowl for a trendy home desktop replacement.

Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone review

 

With its pearly white keyboard, media player buttons and garish blue LED strips, the Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone might look a bit gaudy at first, but don't let this put you off as it offers an amazing array of features for the asking price.

The Acer Aspire 5920 Gemstone's white insides and gimmicky interior won't be to everyone's tastes, but if you can forgive that then this is a fast, well-featured laptop for just under £400.
