Acer's TravelMate 5720-602G16Mi targets the corporate user, and is a 15.4-inch machine offering power and strength. Open the lid and the most striking aspect is the keyboard. With a five-degree curve that ensures your hands point inwards when typing, it's ergonomic, although can be difficult to adjust to for those with smaller hands. The Acer TravelMate 5720-602G16Mi is a good all-round laptop, and its strength and power make it worth considering for those requiring a corporate laptop.

Crammed with a 2GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T7300 processor and a 160GB hard disk, we can only wonder what would have happened if Acer had packed in twice the RAM. Even with its 1GB of DDR2, however, the Acer TravelMate 5720 was able to produce an excellent speed score of 80 WorldBench points.
The Acer TravelMate 5720 is a reliable workhorse and, as our real-world tests illustrate, it will have no trouble running office applications under Windows Vista Business.
In line with the Acer TravelMate 5720's office focus, there are few concessions to multimedia or leisure use, although Acer has included a basic 0.3Mp webcam plus some average speakers.
The Acer TravelMate 5720 is a 3kg model, which is as much as we think any notebook designed for portable use should be.

The quality of budget notebooks keeps rising. Last month, Samsung impressed with its Q70, which managed to combine classy looks with a very acceptable all-round specification. This month, Acer shows its hand with its latest TravelMate. The 5720G certainly makes a good start: it comes in £200 cheaper than the Q70 and, although its grey exterior doesn't compare with the Samsung's glossy looks, it shapes up much more favourably when it comes to features. At the heart of operations is an Intel 2GHz T7300 Core 2 Duo processor. Paired with a decent 2GB of 667MHz DDR2 RAM, this should be enough to run Vista smoothly for some time to come, even if you like to run all of your applications simultaneously. It was enough to help the TravelMate sail through our application benchmarks, scoring 1.09 overall - that's 8% faster than the Q70's score and, to keep things in perspective, is faster than the high-end desktops of last year.
