Acer Aspire V5 review: an 11-inch Ivy Bridge laptop for $550

 

More Info Acer launches Ultrabook-like Aspire V5 series, we go hands-on (video) Acer Aspire V5 notebooks get Ivy Bridge treatment, shipping by

Light, compact design ; Good specs for price

Sticky touchpad ; Cramped keyboard ; Unimpressive battery life

The Acer Aspire V5 offers solid specs for a budget-priced 11-inch laptop, but that doesn't make it a must-buy.

Consumer review by: zed the shredder (tigerdirect.com)

Good considering where it stands in the market.

 

Mine is 1.5ghz. This machine is fine for on the go computing and light home duty. It plays 1080p videos without stuttering. It muli-tasks surprisingly well. There's really no cost comparable competition right now. For $280 it delivers.To my surprise...

Not bad for $230.

 

Not a touch screen! Some of the specs say this is a touch screen, but it isn't. It is definitely not a dog, but it isn't too bad either. I put an SSD drive in it , so i get better battery life and it's a bit faster.

Rubbish product

 

After one month of owning it, the battery completely failed. Warranty repair took 6 weeks which is ridiculous. Just after the one year warranty ran out, the network card fails intermittently as does the mouse pad. Last straw was the power adapter...

Faulty wi-fi driver

 

This laptop seemed to work fine for around 2 months, then every now and then it dropped off the wi-fi... then it failed to pick up any wi fi connection even though every other gadget and laptop in the house could. If you google the issue- Acer laptop...

Looks modern, lean and has a backlit keypad

Just spent 4 hours checking a match on the Acer Cashback website, went to the store, typed in the SNID to the Acer Cashback website - it dumped a page of garbage HTML so I figured it had crashed. After buying the laptop and spending 5 days ringing and...

Too many features getting in the way

 

When I wanted to purchase a new laptop, I wanted a backlit keyboard, a touch screen and a fast processor. The salesperson suggested Acer Aspire V5-571PG. It looked nice, had an Intel Core i7 processor, and a whole bunch of other enticing features....

Looks, touch screen, backlit keyboard

Too slow, doesn't work sometimes
