      (I will not be including product specs in this review, please Google or see Acer’s website for the official specs.)

      As a primarily casual laptop user (that is to say, I’m not using my laptop for gaming, designing & other hardcore stuff) who mainly uses my laptop to access the Internet and handle a few documents, the Acer Aspire 5580 suits my needs just fine. At roughly 2.4kg (5.28lbs), it’s not at all considered a ‘lightweight’ laptop


      by today’s standards, but is portable enough to be carried here and there once in a while.

      Start-up time is decent, and everything else works fine if memory space is maintained.

      My bugbear with this laptop mainly lies with its battery life (which is close to non-existant), and webcam instability. The built-in webcam is nice, except for the fact that it crashes quite a bit and because of the swivel design, the one in my laptop has ...


      • somehow decided to disconnect itself internally so that no programs can detect a webcam. Even with uninstalling and reinstalling the webcam drivers nothing will work. Occasionally the webcam may spring back to life of its own accord, and resume dormancy when bored. Not good for someone living overseas as I am.

        Battery life, as I mentioned, is rather awful and even with careful charging (meaning not leaving it connected to a power outlet when battery’s done charging

        so as not to drain it), my battery now officially has a 100% charged life of 7 minutes.

        Overall, this is an OK laptop for someone on a budget, perhaps if you are intending to be using the webcam often you might want to consider getting an external webcam. Otherwise, it will do alright if you are not intending to carry it around all the time (but if you are, more power to you, build some muscles!).

    It’s actually manufactured by Logitech. However, you can download the driver from support.acer.com. They have all the drivers available for your computer.
