T his touchscreen Aspire feels solid and has one of the better keyboards you'll find on a laptop. The 1366x768 15.6-inch multi-touch display gives vibrant colours with no glare and Acer gives a lot of performance for the low price with a 2.26GHz Core i3, 4GB RAM and 1GB Nvidia GeForce 310 graphics. It's good for Office, browsing, streaming and light gaming and audio is pretty good too. Battery life is under two hours on full whack, increased to 4.5 hours in power save but it redeems itself a tad with four USBs and HDMI. The 5745PG is a great value all-rounder. Look up www.acer.com
