    get a sony at least it's a tried and tested well know brand The Acer Aspire 5536 range has been designed for everyday home users that want a portable PC with the multitasking performance of dual core processors and comprehensive multimedia features, all housed in a good looking design which won’t look out of place in any home.
    The Aspire 5536 features an attractive glossy sapphire blue cover that looks both classy and distinctive. On the inside, the floating keyboard makes typing easier, reducing the chance of “typos” by providing a clear separation between the keys. The power on switch is illuminated in a bright blue neon light, showing the performance waiting within - this contrasts neatly with the dark grey Neoweave palm rest, designed to reduce fingerprint smudges and create a classy environment to enjoy your work and play.

    Crystal Clear Visuals
    A lot of attention has been paid to the visual display of this laptop. Featuring a high definition 15.6” widescreen with 16:9 aspect ratio ensures it will deliver stunningly bright and lifelike images, ideal for enjoying high definition content.
    The screen also features CineCrystal™ technology for intense colour saturation, superior contrast ratio and sharp photo images making image reproduction clearer and movies and photos more enjoyable.

    All Encompassing Audio
    Great multimedia is not just about the visuals, you also need great audio! The Aspire 5536 features the latest 3rd Generation Dolby Home Theater® technologies for virtual 5.1 surround sound, which delivers a vivid audio experience to music, movies, and games, either through the speakers or headphones. Tip Control
    Technology is only useful if you can make it work for you, and the Aspire 5536 keeps you in control.

    The new multi-gesture touchpad lets you navigate, scroll and zoom with ease. By doing a circular motion you can simply scroll up and down an image or file for seamless navigation. Want to zoom in and out? All you need to do is a pinch action to zoom in and the reverse to zoom out. And finally, to change pages or skip through a set of photos simply swipe your fingers across the pad, it could not be easier.

    To ensure you do not disrupt your movie or games by accidentally moving the cursor, Acer have built in a button by the touchpad that will disable the touchpad to prevent this happening.

    On the top left of the keyboard is the easy launch buttons for Wireless and the Acer Back Up key, which allows you to duplicate files to another location quickly and easily.

    On the top right of the keyboard is the Programme Key, this allows users to create a shortcut to their chosen application, keeping you in control and making your computer work for you. Connectivity
    Notebooks excel on their connectivity, and the Aspire 5536 does not let you down.

    Connectivity to the internet is available via Gigabit LAN, the fastest LAN connection available or wireless 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N, the latest wireless standard. To enhance the wireless signal on this notebook Acer include Acer SignalUp technology which uses a high performance PIFA wireless antenna and optimises the location of the antenna on the notebook giving exceptional wireless performance.

    Web Cam
    The integrated Acer Crystal Eye webcam allows you to keep in touch with friends and family, face to face. To ensure you get the best experience it also features enhanced Acer PrimaLite™ technology consisting of a premium sensor, ultra-efficient firmware, and high-quality lenses to provide superior video performance under low-light conditions.
