Acer Aspire V5 review: A touch-screen Windows 8 laptop for less

 

After starting with high-end proof-of-concept models such as the Acer Aspire S7 and Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga , touch screens are moving into mainstream Windows 8 laptops.

The Acer Aspire V5 has a decent design, midrange configuration, and a touch screen, all for a very reasonable price.

While slim and reasonably attractive, this is still a plastic laptop. The weak battery keeps it from being a great road system.

For under $700, the Acer Aspire V5 proves that a touch screen can work in a budget-priced Windows 8 laptop without cutting too many corners.

Acer Aspire V5 touchscreen laptop

 

Don't be put off by the Pentium; this laptop actually goes alright

Decent performer ; Good amount of features ; Good size for the price

Screen ripples at the sides when you touch it ; Touchpad could be better

"Great standard laptop for the money."

 

Perfectly fine standard laptop. Nothing extravagant about it, the battery life does not last as long as I'd like but I just keep it plugged up as I use it. Good school laptop. I have no wireless issues unlike the rest of these reviews.

Speed, style

"worst laptop ever."

 

I bought it from Staples and had 2 weeks to return it. I'm kicking myself for not returning it. I've called the support line and twice been on the phone wit them for almost an our and the problem is still not fixed. I definitely would not recommend...

touch screen is neat feature

the wireless feature is horrible.

"abysmal performance of wireless connection"

 

very frustrating; not worth the cheap price!

nice touchscreen, fast processing

Some days are good, but many days, the laptops will lose connection to the wireless, even when it looks like 5 bars, every 10 minutes. This is no exaggeration, and happens on all five of the laptops we got for our medical office.
