Comment: I brought this laptop at Christmas last year ,since it had had to been sent of for repair twice , the screen cracked when I picked it up , by the slightest touch , I am not very happy to be having it sent off again!!! These laptops are not cheap and my daughter has lost everything twice now let's hope it's not a third!.
Good: Light and good battery life
Bad: Cheap and tacky. Build quality is rubbish.
Comment: What continuously put me off was the cramped keyboard. I'm a reasonable typist and don't want a separate number keypad taking up space, and when I wanted to type "c" I had to thump it to register!
Functionally this machine regularly just lost work for no reason. I would be quite happily going along, when all of a sudden it would just throw me back to a previous screen and not recover. Regular saving was not the total answer.
Again, I'd be merrily typing away and it would say I'd "navigated away from this screen". Lies!
The machine felt very flimsy (compared to my old Dell and desktop PCs).
I took it back to Tesco after 3 months and swapped to a Sony Viao. Time will tell; otherwise I keep my trusty old Dell as a standby.
Good: A great laptop for general use.
Comment: I purchased one of these to replace my last laptop and I am extremely pleased with it. If like me you need something for web browing and social networking along with the occasional report writing this Acer 5749 is exceptional.
