Acer Extensa 5620 notebook

 

Bargain basement or bit of a steal?

The Acer Extensa 5620 won't blow you away in the style or performance stakes, but for less than £400 (inc. VAT) it's good enough for every day tasks, especially if your needs are basic, but don't consider it if you're looking for a multimedia machine.

Acer Extensa 5620Z-3A1G12Mi

 

The Acer Extensa 5620Z (3A1G12Mi) is a budget notebook aimed squarely at the business market. With a combination of commercial features, such as an ex...

Excellent value for money, good built-in webcam, wide variety of connectivity

Lacks processing speed, ergonomic keyboard design takes getting used to, plain design

Although the unit lacks the speed seen in other dual-core systems, it is one of the best notebooks available for under $1000. If you are on a tight budget, this unit should be high on the must-see list.

Acer Extensa 5635Z Laptop

 

The 15.6 inch screen has a high definition native resolution and high levels of brightness thanks to the Cine Crystal technology that uses LED backlighting. This also makes the screen slim and energy efficient, which adds to the portability of the...

Uniquely valuable set of features, terrific value

 

A friend of mine bought this model with Win7 32-bit Professional in late Feb. 2010. He won't be posting any reviews of his new machine, so I'll have to do it for him. This isn't a complete review, but I want to highlight some of its salient (... Expand...

Value per dollar ; WIn7 Professional instead of lesser versions ; Runs Win XP mode ; PCMCIA type II interface ; Expresscard interface ; eSATA interface, makes it very easy to backup or image the laptop's hard disk drive ; 3 GB RAM already installed

Power jack is (apparently) soldered to the mother board, a critical but all too common design flaw ; 32-bit version of Win7 Pro is installed. This means that the machine cannot recognize 4 GB of RAM ; Too-sensitive touch pad

Why I will never buy Acer again

 

While still under warranty, I sent in my Acer Aspire 6930 laptop to repair an audio issue, which did not impact computer operation. The laptop was returned but audio issue was not fixed. Returned laptop for repair a 2nd time and it came back with...

Don't know since I don't own this model

Poor warranty service

Good work/school laptop.

 

Runs Vista well. Struggles a bit to run Warcraft 3 (DotA), which is a relatively old game. I was pleasantly surprised by Microsoft's improvement to wireless connectivity in Vista; it is streamlined and makes for easy networking. Basically, it's...

Strong processor for a budget laptop ; Plenty of RAM ; Acer software has some benefits and is somewhat programmable ; Nice screen size ; Good keyboard for typing (for a laptop); it has a slight curve and clicks just right ; Decent battery life and does...

The GPU, naturally, is incredibly weak (standard for a laptop); my old Radeon x300 is far more powerful, even if only with original drivers ; Vista Business does not come with or allow download of Vista games (though it can be downgraded freely to XP)...

Not Bad for the price.

 

The Top Screen resolution is a little weird. 1280 by 800?

Low price, nice screen. The keyboard is large(I have big hands). Linux installs okay in dual boot mode, and most of the hardware is linux compatible, with Ubuntu 8.40

The Wireless lan is not Linux compatible out of the box. There are third party drivers available out there someplace. (If you use linux, you might as well purchase a wireless lan card that is linux compatible instead). The Set up disks do not come with...
