Reviews for the Acer Aspire 7 A717-71G-549R

Acer Aspire 7 (A717-71G) review – Acer’s high-performance mid-ranger
Source: Laptop Media English
To be fair, it’s really hard not to recommend this high-performance budget laptop. It’s good for everyday work, for multimedia and even for gaming while costing just around €750 (since at the time of writing this review, the Aspire 7 is still not available in the US). But if all that power isn’t all that necessary, we recommend looking into the Aspire 5 as well as it offers just about the same user experience but with more balanced hardware capable of squeezing out better battery runtimes.
