Acer Extensa 5220-101G08Mi review


A solid design that offers great value for the asking price

Solid build ; Bargain price ; Great software bundle included

Lacklustre performance ; Bulky

A competent laptop that is more than good enough for basic home or office tasks, and available at a great price too
