Review Acer Aspire V5-131-10172G50akk Notebook

 

Long battery life for little money. With the Aspire V5-131, Acer

matte screen; low system noise; low power consumption; very good battery life; user can/must select the OS

spongy keyboard; poor viewing angles; bluish display

Acer managed to make energy consumption and temperature increase lower than the Aspire One 756 siblings.

Acer Aspire V5-131 Review

 

the Transformer Pad is a brilliant device and comes with a keyboard dock giving your tablet the utility of a netbook. It is however a little hard to recommend the Asus Transformer Pad TF300TG. For Rs. 35,000 you get the Samsung Galaxy Note 800, which...

Good build ; Wide viewing angles ; Excellent battery life ; Minimalistic and easy UI ; Responsive touch interface ; Good speakers

Expensive ; Better value for money options out there ; Display resolution could have been better ; Keyboard dock may feel cramped for some

Great Little Laptop

 

After trying out a Chromebook for the first time, I knew I wanted a small laptop to use for whatever. I really liked the size of the Chromebook, but didn't like the operating system or how it can't install or run any programs. This is of both worlds,...

I had a friend recommend this laptop to me, because he works with an ad agency and they load these things up with adware all the time and break them. I'm extremely satisfied with this laptop. It's able to handle whatever programs I want to run, this...

It can be a little slow at opening big documents, but what do you expect from such a small laptop? It would also be cool if it was touchscreen, but you'd have to get a bigger sized laptop, and this size was just what I wanted.

lightweight 7 durable (relatively) netbook

 

For the price I paid for it, this has been a fantastic investment.

Better than my Dull [tm] laptop. Reinstalled an OEM Win7 to eliminate the bloatware and this has been a great portable device for college, light gaming (I can run Civ5 on low settings), VOIP, and the intrawebz. It has plenty of USB ports. Personally, I...

5400rpm/90Hz HDD is rather slow

Pretty good netbook

 

I'd recommend getting a lightweight DE for this, it can handle the heavyweights like Gnome and KDE but it really shines when you put something less demanding on it.

has enough power for everyday browsing and programming ; remarkably durable, has taken more abuse than I would expect it to survive ; rarely gets hot ; no driver problems ; definitely a good choice if you want something small and cheap for carrying around

battery life is so-so(could be better, but about what I would expect) ; pre-installed linux is totally useless ; keyboard doesn't have a caps lock light ; suspend/resume sometimes doesn't work ; definitely NOT a good choice for anything more demanding...

Great small laptop for a great price

 

I bought this laptop for doing work, not trying to play games. And for work, it is great! It comes with an open memory slot, so I installed an extra 4 GB of RAM, which really helped with multitasking, and running multiple programs at once. This laptop...

Great price, small size that is easy to transport and carry in any bag you carry papers in. Has a VGA port for use with older classroom projectors. Has all the other ports you would need like USB, HDMI and Either net cables. Has enough storage space...

Not really a con, but this laptop does come with ALOT of Acer bloatware. It is easy to get rid of, so that is why I am not going to take off any eggs in the rating. And the touch pad that you use your fingers on to move the cursor around is a bit...

Does what I bought it for

 

This is a very portable laptop that I use every day in my position as a DBA. The laptop will run every Linux distribution that I have installed on it - currently its running an Arch variant. The panel, the wireless chipset, the keboard, and the touch...

There's no disk-activity light and there's no indication of when the Caps Lock is on. Very minor quibbles, but theye did require some adjustments

Nice Little Computer

 

I bought two laptops this last month. One with windows 8.1 and only SSDs and this one with a hard drive and Windows 7. Out of the two the other one is driving me nuts because of windows 8.1. I have nothing against the speed,size and other attributes of...

Nice Little computer. It has Windows 7 (Not 8.1)! It ran my Christmas show this season when my bigger laptop fried. No issues, it worked every time exactly the way I needed it to.

Has a hard drive. Wished it had only an SSD, but for the price, what do I expect!
