Acer Aspire V5-561PG-6686

 

The Acer Aspire V5-561PG-6686 is a modestly priced, midrange desktop-replacement laptop, but aside from better-than-average graphics performance, it fails to impress.

Touch screen. Discrete AMD graphics. Full port selection

Bland design. Basic 1,366-by-768 resolution. Hard drive has smaller capacity and slows performance

The Acer Aspire V5-561PG-6686 ($699.99) is a desktop-replacement laptop that wades in the shallow end of the midrange category, just crossing the line from entry-level systems on price. The slim laptop gets the price bump, thanks to an AMD Radeon R7...

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.

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...

Consumer review by:

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.
