Acer Aspire 5943G-5464G64BN


Good display and positive keyboard which I find easy to use. Very quiet. Sound quality is very good compared to other laptops I have used. Processor rattles through the tasks I have performed but I have not used, to date, a number of items on this...

Weight 3KG+ but no problems for me as I use it around the home complimenting the Desktop PC
