Review Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644 Notebook


Affordable touch. Want the full Windows 8 experience but don't wa

Lightweight; Commendable build quality; Good application performance; Multi-touch interface works well; Efficient thermal design; Great battery life

Glossy, low-brightness screen; Poor color reproduction, saturation, and contrast; Awful touchpad; Poor port placement and limited selection

If you aren’t partial to Windows 8 or don’t need a touchscreen, you might find a better choice in the Acer Aspire M5-481TG, which also features dedicated graphics—but overall, if touch is a must and budget is a concern, the Acer M5-481PT is a worthy...

Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644


The Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644 is a well-built ultrabook that offers solid performance and long battery life at a reasonable price. Its 14-inch touch-screen is ideal for Windows 8 users on the go.

10-point touch-screen. Solid performance. Great battery life. Backlit keyboard

Only two USB ports. No VGA video output. Some bloatware

With the Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644 ($729.99 list) you get the full Windows 8 experience in an attractive entry-level ultrabook that won't break the bank. Solidly built and cool to the touch, the M5-481PT-6644 is equipped with a ten-point touch-screen...

Acer Aspire M5 481PT review: The safe Windows 8 laptop bet


The 14-inchAcer Aspire M5 481PThas a solid metal body, strong battery life, good performance, a DVD drive, and a touch screen, all for a manageable price.

The screen quality isn't stellar, the touch pad doesn't always handle well, and unlike previous versions, it doesn't offer dedicated graphics.

Considering the total package of features and price, the Acer Aspire M5 feels like a safe bet if you want an all-encompassing Windows 8 laptop with touch that won't cost a fortune.

Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6488


The Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6488 Ultrabook combines a touch screen, good looks and high-quality sound.

Attractive design; Fast boot time; Touch screen works well with Windows 8; Excellent sound quality

Awkwardly placed power button; Touchpad can be finicky; All the ports in the back

Click to EnlargeThe Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6488 is an attractive Windows 8 Ultrabook in more ways than one. The brushed aluminum design gives this 14-inch laptop a premium vibe, as does the touch screen and high-quality speaker system. However, the M5...

Acer Aspire M5-481PT review


A year and a half ago, the Acer M5-481PT would have been a revelation. A Windows 8 Ultrabook, the M5 sports a third-generation Intel Core i5-3317U processor, 6GB of RAM, a 500GB hard drive (with 20GB SSD cache), a 14-inch 10-point multitouch screen,...

The Acer M5-481PT feels like a holdover of a bygone era in laptop design, where all laptops tried to be all things to all people. While its robust feature set and solid build quality are impressive for the modest $800 pricetag, the M5 feels like an...

Consumer review by: tkayyy (

good overall, some complaints


Functions well, though I expected somewhat faster/better endurance with 6GB RAM and 20 SSD. The trackpad/mouse settings keep getting reset automatically, which is annoying. Overall, I'm still pleased with my purchase. Not too pleased with Windows 8.0,...
