Review Acer Aspire V5-551-64454G50Makk Notebook

 

Too noisy, too slow. Acer's 15.6-inch Aspire V5-551-64454G50Makk

24-month warranty; USB 3.0; Display offers good contrast

Fan always audible; Hard drive is slow; Not easy to maintain / expand; Battery life not very good (low-capacity battery)

Acer delivers a bargain notebook - and outfits it with a display with outstanding contrast ratio. Many more expensive notebooks have lower quality screens.
