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.

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

Acer V5-131-2497 (NX.M8AAA.004)

 

This computer is actually quite good for web surfing, office software, music, and movies. Recommend it

the only drawback is low sound volume

Acer v5 is nice little laptop

 

New Egg should replace the battery and ship a new OEM flat battery to meet the specs as advertised. Otherwsie I like the fact it came with windows 7 because windows 8.1 is not what I would ever want in an operating system and cumbersome for power pros...

Small, Light, quiet

Battery shipped is not the one in pictures and makes this laptop sit up 1 3/4" high (thick) so its much thicker than advertised. The pictures show a thin flat battery, thats not what was shipped with the unit. I called NewEgg.com and they said to call...

Excellent

 

Once you get an OS installed, it works perfectly. It's quiet and doesn't get too hot, and it runs snappily if you install a smallish distro as I did. There were no driver problems at all

None, really. It took a while to ship. The Linpus installed, as said before, was thoroughly useless. Get a different distro and install it with UNetbootin on a USB drive

Decent Light-Duty Small Notebook

 

The MAIN reason I bought this laptop because it comes with Windows 7. Windows 8 is just not the OS for me. This laptop is slightly bigger than your average "netbook" but not as big as your full-size laptop. It makes a good laptop for those that want a...

Comes with Windows 7 ; It's pictured with Windows 8, but comes with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit ; Lightweight ; Decent battery life ; Good size keyboard for small hands ; Fairly snappy for light-duty applications

Touchpad seems finicky ; It works, just not quite like most I've used before

Acer Aspire V5-131-2629

 

I am not sure what others have received, but the one I got works just fine. Reading the reviews I was concern the touch pad was usable, but it's not that much different from others pads I use. It has double picked while playing a card game, but so does...

Win 7 ; Size ; Price

No USB 3.0 ; Boatload ; The charger does not seem very robust, but it works fine so far

acer aspire v5-131-2629

 

This computer is the second one of this model. I ended up returning the first one a second time is because the microphone failed to work when I tried to skype with the computer. This second return for an exchange was no problem. I wish I'd asked for an...

I doubled the memory, and it moves right along. I like the size of computer

No problems

bad port

 

Upon getting the same computer back from NewEgg and upon being told by NewEgg that the computer was good to go, I found immediately that the USB port was still faulty. If I inserted a memory stick or a USB mouse in that port and held the stick or the...

I like the size of computer. I like the speed since I doubled memory

I sent the computer back to NewEgg for repair or replacement because it had a faulty USB port. Also the card reader did not work
