Good size and quality screen
Good graphics card and processor
The keyboard is a nightmare and mouse are a nightmare for me!
Acer TravelMate 5520 is a good laptop at the cheaper end of the market, the screen is great and it comes with a Vista, a good graphics card (Nvida GEForce 7000M) and a quality Turion 64x2 processor.
Unfortunately it's completely let down by the keyboard and mouse which are just FAR to spongy and sensitive and makes writing e-mails or word processing the most frustrating experience you will EVER experience, the cursor will constantly disappear and then reappear in the wrong place either a few lines away from where it's supposed to be or in the middle of a previous word miles away - it's an absolute nightmare, you will find yourself constantly checking what you're doing just to make sure what you've written actually makes sense! and makes what could have been a 10/10 machine just a 4/10
