The accessories were all secure in their own place inside the cardboard packaging, and everything seemed well protected. Recovery DVDs are not normally included, but my specimen had been a demo at the Staples Acer Aspire 5680 VGA, so discs had been created by the staff in order to return it to the shipping state. Unfortunately for me, I was unable to get any further discount based on the machines duty as a demo unit. The screen does flex though not unreasonably so, and base seems to flex somewhat if picked up by a corner. This is the biggest question mark hanging over this model, and I wonder if the chassis flex is going to be an issue in the future. I took a walk down the row of notebooks at the local Best Buy and subjected Acer Aspire 5680 VGA all to a flexing test and it seems the was not nearly as stiff as most other machines?

On the other hand, even though the screen does flex easily, the LCD does not ripple or distort at all when twisted. It is an attractive looking model in classic charcoal and silver, with a glossy piano-black frame around the screen.

Port and interface locations on the chassis are some of the best in my opinion? The screen is held closed by two plastic latches, and either of the two release slides on the front will release them both.

Acer Aspire Review

When open, the screen stays where it is put very well, and does not wobble at all even when the base is shaken? Underside of Acer Aspire view large image Keyboard and Touchpad view large image The screen and keyboard are where we interact directly with the laptop, so their quality is important. The keyboard is easy to type on; keys are quiet, with an appropriate amount of resistance. The keyboard does have some flex if Acer Aspire 5680 VGA hard, but normal typing pressure does not cause any unexpected movement. The only anomaly I can find in the keyboard is that a few keys in the top Acer Aspire 5680 VGA have a different sound?


The keyboard layout is good, keys are where you would expect them, and my fingers find the correct key without searching? It is notable to say that so far in typing this review my fingertips have caught the underside of nearby keys 3 or 4 Acer Aspire 5680 VGA The touchpad works well, and with some adjustment I? The buttons are a bit hard to push, and do click rather loudly compared to the keyboard? I preferred the soft touch of the buttons on HP machines to these. In between the left and right buttons is a square scroll button for vertical and horizontal scrolling, which works well, but also clicks loudly. While typing, considerable heat can be felt on the left side of the keyboard, and the left palmrest. It is not hot or unbearable, but it is tough to ignore.


As said before, flexing of the screen frame does not affect the picture or display at all. The brightness has 16 settings, all of which are very useable. The dimmest setting does allow more reflection of backlight so Acer Aspire 5680 VGA becomes very important, and the brightest setting is almost too bright for me. It does work well however when working under bright lights or outside.

I can find no light leakage or uneven backlighting issues, and all pixels seem to be functioning properly. It is an easy screen to use for long periods. For typing, almost any reasonable vertical viewing angle works well, and text can be read easily from well off to either side. Pictures or videos have a much more limited viewing sweet spot. Matte finish screens will give more liberal viewing angle, but the benefit of bright, vibrant colours that jump off the screen is worth it. This Acer Aspire 5680 VGA perhaps being overly critical however, in effort to find something to criticize on an excellent screen. Above the display is a 1. I have no intention of using it, and would have rather it not even be there. If it has to be there, I?

Speakers The speakers are about what you would expect from a midsize notebook.


They do not distort at high volumes, but they do not get all that loud and the sound lacks body. I really think it is unfair to expect great musical performance from notebook speakers? In my opinion, on-board notebook speakers are for playing Windows and notification sounds, and these work just fine for that. If external speakers are to be hooked up, it might have been nice to have the Acer Aspire 5680 VGA jacks on Acer Aspire 5680 VGA side of the notebook instead of front and center.
