With the Aspire 5755G Acer has delivered a solid home PC laptop that's a good all-rounder. It performs well for applications, video and gaming, with better than average multimedia performance, and has reasonable battery life. All-in-all, just what we'd expect from a Core i7 Sandy Bridge machine - especially for under £900. If you're after a first home machine, or an upgrade to the latest technology, the Aspire is well worth a look.

The Acer Aspire 5755G 15.6in notebook is slim and unassuming, but its unremarkable exterior hides a powerful Core i7 CPU and a decent Nvidia graphics card which together are ideal for business multitasking, if not quite the full gaming experience. It's just a shame there's no Full HD display.

The 15.6-inch Acer Aspire 5755G isn't the sort of laptop that likes to brag. The Acer Aspire 5755G is no beauty, but it does offer impressive performance. If you're looking for a beefy laptop that will plough through your work, but isn't the type to shout about it, the 5755G is definitely worth a look.

At just shy of £900, the Aspire 5755G is a decent bargain, even if it can’t quite compete for looks or portability with the likes of the slightly cheaper Lenovo ThinkPad Edge E420s. However, if you want a portable computer that won’t baulk at demanding tasks, the Aspire 5755G offers superlative performance. A higher-resolution screen would be nice, as would be slightly more practical battery life, but for practical, everyday computing, from a machine you won’t need to replace before it sees its first birthday, the 5755G is a very solid buy.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:
Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

76.67%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
