Excerpt: Mid-range notebooks have been around since quite some time, now. They aren’t exactly for high-performance usage, but do offer a slew of tangible benefits, the most important one being the relatively cheaper price range and the above average specifications.

Summary: For $599, the Acer Aspire 5755-6647 is a good choice for bargain-hunters. It delivers solid performance for everyday tasks and a quality 15.6-inch display for enjoying multimedia.

Consumers looking for more graphics oomph should check out the AMD-powered $599 Gateway NV55S05u, but the Acer beats it in most other aspects. Overall, the Acer Aspire 5755-6647 is an attractive value-priced laptop.
