    The Acer Aspire 5920-5A3G25Mi is a distinctive-looking laptop. Open the glossy black lid and you'll find a contrasting beige interior, with clean lines and strong details. There's a 15.4-inch screen with a glossy Super-TFT coating.

    If any single company can be thought to have driven the price of the average laptop down it is Acer. In recent years it has been the most aggressive manufacturer of laptops. Its budget machine is the Acer Extensa 5220-101G08Mi (£270 inc. VAT), which takes an older design with a five-degree curve to the keyboard, but adds a reasonable specification for the price.

    Acer's TravelMate 5720-602G16Mi targets the corporate user, and is a 15.4-inch machine offering power and strength. Open the lid and the most striking aspect is the keyboard. With a five-degree curve that ensures your hands point inwards when typing, it's ergonomic, although can be difficult to adjust to for those with smaller hands.

    Acer’s Aspire 8920G-934G64Bn (£1400 inc. VAT) is the second machine we’ve seen from the company to feature its latest Gemstone Blue styling. Along with a 3D-effect finish to the glossy lid, you’ll also find an unusual 18.4-inch display and a host of unique design touches.

    Acer has been overhauling its laptop designs of late, but the company has stayed with a trusted design with the Acer Extensa 5620 (£399 inc. VAT). The chassis is based on the old TravelMate line, which is Acer’s business range of laptops, so you’ll find a rugged design with plenty of protection and a keyboard with a five-degree curve to it.

    Acer get our tests started with the Aspire 5115WLMi, an appealing silver-black system that comes packed with features: 2GB of RAM, 160GB hard drive, Wi-Fi, dual-layer DVD writer, USB, Fast Ethernet, VGA, Firewire, even a DVI port. It’s an impressive list.

    Acer is in the process of trying to change its perceived brand value. No longer does it want to be seen as simply offering bargain-priced laptops, but also more high-end brands. The easiest way to achieve this aim is to release something a little different and the Acer Aspire 6920G-603G25Bn (£900 inc. VAT) is certainly that.

    The Acer Aspire 7720G-703G25Hn (£980 inc. VAT) is the largest machine available in the company’s Gemstone range and is aimed at the casual gamer. With an affordable price tag, you won’t find performance to worry the Dell XPS, but most games still run without trouble.

    The Acer Aspire 7720G-302G32Hi (£699 inc. VAT) is quite a large laptop. Its 17-inch screen, powerful components and HD DVD drive are ideal for multimedia use, but the bulky case and low battery life restrict mobility.

    Acer is one of the most aggressive laptop manufacturers at the moment, and is constantly offering competitive specifications at good prices. The Acer Aspire 7520-6A1G08Mi (£399 inc VAT) is a great example, as this machine not only packs in a dual-core processor, but is also a very feature-rich laptop.

    The Acer Aspire 5920 (£549 inc. VAT) is incredible value for money, as it delivers the best in terms of specification, but isn't an expensive machine

    Acer has built a successful business supplying the latest technology at affordable prices. The Aspire 4920G-302G25Mi (£670 inc. VAT) provides high-performance and a unique design at a low price, but poor mobility limits travel use

    Acer's TravelMate 7720-302G16 (£799 inc. VAT) is built for business users with a need for multimedia power. While there's little to define it as a corporate laptop, it's a reliable desktop replacement for home use and short journeys

    The Acer Aspire range is aimed at consumers, so you'll find a range of interesting features. For instance, this 9304WSMi (£499 inc. VAT) sports a 17-inch panel. This size of screen is quite rare at this price point, so Acer should be commended
