Review Acer Aspire V5-122P-61454G50NSS Notebook

 

Quad-core midget. With the new Acer Aspire V5-122P, we get to test the first notebook with AMD's brand new, energy-efficient A6 quad-core processor even before the official release. Here you can read how well the 11.6-inch midget with its IPS...

good processing and stability, IPS touchscreen, low temperature development, good multithreading performance due to quad-core, The IPS display which has a good image quality and wide viewing angles compared to other devices in its class

low performance due to low clock speed, limited outdoor capabilities due to low luminance & glossy screen, moderate battery runtimes, A matte display coating for the touchscreen would improve the outdoor suitability significantly

Acer Aspire V5-122P Review

 

The $449 Acer Aspire V5-122P offers a touch-screen Windows 8 experience at an affordable price, but its battery life is far too short.

Affordable; Sturdy keyboard

Short battery life; Mediocre performance; Limited viewing angles; Odd power button placement

Acer Aspire V5 review

 

A touchscreen and decent build quality can't rescue this budget laptop

Touchscreen ; Affordable price ; Good keyboard ; Attractive design ; Light and portable

Annoying touchpad ; Poor battery life ; Mediocre processor ; Lacking connectivity ; Limited storage

The Acer Aspire V5-122P feels like a notebook the Taiwanese company just dashed off between high-profile Ultrabook launches and, as such, is hard to recommend. What could have been a highly-portable touch-enabled work laptop is undone by a poor battery...

Acer Aspire V5-122P review

 

Acer lists the V5 series on the ‘ultra-thin' section of its website, clearly suggesting that it's an Ultrabook. The basic design of this budget laptop is certainly light and attractive, with this particular V5-122P model providing an 11.6-inch screen...

If you're on a tight budget then the Acer V5-122P may prove quite a good value for money laptop. Its computing speed is low, but the build quality and screen are definitely above average for a bottom-dollar laptop. Unfortunately, the battery life is a...

An excellent sub-notebook

 

With regards to another reviewer stating this laptop is unupgradeable, that is simply not true. Removing the bottom cover to replace the HDD and RAM is stupidly easy. Its about a dozen tin y screws, a SATA connect and a ribbon cable. Thats it. The...

Small, light. Quad core, albeit slow, 6GB of RAM, IPS screen

I have two complaints with this laptop ; 1) Windows 8. You have to do a lot of work to undo the Metro and Start Screen trash in order to make this machine useful. Once done, its a nice little machine though ; 2) Acer bloat. There's a ton of it. I...
