Review Acer Aspire V5-431 Notebook

 

Ultrabook flair. On a limited budget - but drawn to stylish and

Chassis sufficiently sturdy; Optical drive; Dongle for VGA/LAN; Removable battery; Quiet during every-day use; Low power consumption; Large & very functional touchpad

Noisy keyboard; Short battery life; Glossy TFT; Hardware not easily accessible; Power just sufficient for office-type applications; Gaming not really possible; Noisy webcam

Enhanced mobility. Even lower priced notebooks can feature a high battery capacity and a non-glare display - case in point: the ThinkPad Edge models E130/E135.
