The Acer Aspire 5755 notebook – Anything new to aspire to?

By Gabrielle Pickard,

Acer have come up with yet another new notebook, which, like its every successor to date, claims to adapt to users’ evolving needs. The Acer Aspire 5755 is, according to the company, the model of perfection being “perfect for unforgettable entertainment, perfect for everyday computing, perfect for smooth multitasking.”

Although I have to admit, I am a fan of Acer Aspire notebooks, with my Acer Aspire One being my faithful companion since 2008, so perhaps I should be a little less sceptical about the ‘perfection’ claims of Acer Aspire’s latest family member.

With Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, the Aspire 5755 apparently provides advanced graphic capabilities for ‘smoother’ content creation. Being part of the second generation Intel Core processor family, Aspire’s latest model provides ‘dynamic’ processing power for the run-of-the-mill but high in demand applications, such as social networking, videos, movies, gaming, music and photos.

Possessing high-definition CineCrystal LED backlit displays the Aspire 5755 promises to present striking 720p visuals in 16:9 aspect ratio. Whilst, by featuring an HDMI port, users can take the HD experience of their new notebook and put it on a larger screen, to enjoy the crystal clear visuals on a larger screen. Not only this, but users can take advantage of the notebook’s optional Intel Wireless Display (WiDi) and view their favourite movies, photos, online TV and video on their own TV with superior sound and image clarity.

And sound quality and superiority has seemingly not been sufficed by an emphasis on creating stunning visuals and image quality, as in featuring Dolby Advanced Audio v2 and professionally tuned surround sound via PC speakers, headphones or home theatre system, users can watch movies, play games and listen to music with a superior sound quality.

Memory is one of the primary concerns of laptop and notebook consumers and therefore needs to be touched upon in a review. The Aspire 5755 seems to tick all the boxes in the memory stakes, offering up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, a large capacity of hard disks with up to 1TB of capacity and a multi-in-1 card reader that supports the latest high-capacity storage media for easy transfer, sharing and storage of files.

The LG verdict? Promising, although retailing at £899, perhaps I will have to scuffle along with my Acer Aspire One a little longer whilst I save up.
