Acer Aspire 5749 - Pocket-lint


Big budget laptop with build quality; the features Acer leaves out are features not everyone needs in a budget laptop; with a good CPU and screen and lashings

Decent performance, good battery life, plenty of storage, good build quality

Functional, slightly unimpressive design, low volume speakers, no USB 3

It's easy to underestimate the Aspire 5749 when you look at the £400 pricetag and the all-plastic case, but when you cast your eye over the specifications and try it out it starts to look more attractive.

Acer Aspire 5749 review


The Acer Aspire 5749 is a new entry-level laptop. The tried-and-tested plastic chassis design is starting to show its age compared to budget models from other manufacturers, but build quality is as good as ever. It should be able to withstand a few...

A fantastic budget laptop with everything you need – performance, battery life and masses of storage

Acer Aspire Notebook 5749


At last shiny black all over is not what all notebook s seem to be. Here a 15.6inch screen offering with a quad core Intel i3 processor. While the base is matt black the lid is patterned grey, sadly the screen surround is still shiny black.

Acer aim for practicality over good looks with the Aspire 5749 . With all the current excitement about ultrabooks, it's...

The emphasis is on power and practicality

Awful sound quality

The budget-conscious Acer Aspire 5749 won't win any prizes for good looks but it's sturdily built, has a punchy Intel Core i3 processor to aid multitasking and tons of hard drive space to store important documents, photos and videos.

Acer Aspire 5749 budget 15in laptop


Review Acer's Aspire line has become synonymous with affordable computing power, providing an air of quality even towards the lowest end of the pricing scale. With an asking price of £399, the 15.6in Aspire 5749 isn't going to break the bank and it...

The Aspire 5749 is far from being the most powerful machine on the market, but the combination of respectable battery life and more than sufficient processing power could make this an ideal notebook for the cash-strapped. It may have its foibles, but...

Acer Aspire 5749-2334G75MI


This tablet has a lot going for it, great picture and fast processor. I do feel the sound could be a lot better

Camera stopped working after 1 Year. Rebooted after reading what a customer said online but also noticed the same thing has happened to other people with the same tablet. Still no camera

Acer Aspire 5749-2334G75MI


I upgraded to 64 Bit ; with 4 GB RAM so very quick and capable can have several programmes running simaeltaniouslly

A bit heavy and bulky compared to more recent laptops but on the upside recently dropped it onto a concrete floor, without a scratch
