Acer Aspire V5 Touch Review


Examining this laptop point by point, feature by feature, results in too few pros and many cons. Acer is offering too little laptop for too high a price.

The Acer Aspire V5 is only competitive as an entry-level laptop. Jacking the price up to $730 without addressing battery life or performance has predictable results.

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.

Acer Aspire V5 Review


We have a hard time recommending the V5 because much better options are available for just a little extra dough.

The Acer Aspire V5 is no powerhouse. It’s also doesn’t offer outstanding endurance, or a great display or groundbreaking design. The V5 is relying on two features: It’s inexpensive, and it’s light.

Acer Aspire V5-573PG-9610


Acer's Aspire V5-573PG-9610 is a desktop-replacement laptop that offers all-day battery life and a reasonable feature set, but there are better options for the money.

Touch screen. All-day battery life. Nvidia graphics boost entertainment options.

Awkwardly placed Power button and ports. 720p-resolution screen.

Conclusion A year ago, a desktop-replacement laptop with touch capability would be enough on its own to earn high marks. With so many to choose from today, the Acer Aspire V5-573PG-9610 fails to pull to the front of the pack. It offers average...

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.

Conclusion As stated at the outset of this review, there are plenty of laptops that offer better performance. But if graphics capability is high on your list of criteria when shopping for an affordable system, the Acer Aspire V5-561PG-6686 offers...

Acer Aspire V5-571P-6627


The Acer Aspire V5-571P-6627 is a touch-enabled laptop that balances the demands of portability and performance against affordability, and comes out looking pretty good.

Touch screen. Extra-large touchpad. Optical drive. Intel Core i3 low-voltage processor offers solid performance. Slim design looks good and makes it easy to pick up and go.

Battery life is fairly short.

Conclusion The Acer Aspire V5-571P-6627 may not wow you with performance or take you through a full day on a single charge, but the touch capability and sleek design brings a look and feel that suggests a much higher price tag, making the Aspire...

Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814


The Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814 offers the best all-around processing and graphics performance among 14- and 15-inch touch-screen laptops.

Speedy Intel Core i7 ultra-mobile processor. Discrete Nvidia GeForce 710M GPU. Touch screen.

Awkward proprietary Ethernet/VGA combo port. Middling sound. Short battery life.

While it fell short in battery life and doesn't impress with its bland looks and middling port selection, the Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814 does offer the best all-around processing and graphics performance of any of the 14- and 15-inch touch-screen...

Acer Aspire V5 review: beauty and no brains


This sleek budget machine looks good but lacks performance muscle.

Smooth, responsive touchscreen ; Decent video and audio experience

Low resolution for 15-inch display ; Poor general performance

Acer Aspire V5-571-6891


The Acer Aspire V5-571-6891 ($499.99 list) is a Windows 8 budget desktop replacement laptop with very few compromises. It comes with a large 15.6-inch display with a full keyboard, multi-touch trackpad, DVD burner, dual-band (2.4GHz and 5GHz) Wi-Fi,...

Great Price. 6GB of memory. Full keyboard including numeric keypad. Core i3 processor with Intel HD 4000 Graphics. 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi. Good speakers and sound

No Touch screen. Only one USB 3.0 port. Dongle for Ethernet and VGA. Bloatware in desktop mode

The Acer Aspire V5-571-6891 comes in as a price leader: under $500, yet it's a fully functional desktop replacement laptop rather than the stripped down netbook that you'd expect for so few ducats.

Acer adds a touch screen to the inexpensive Aspire V5


Even budget Windows 8 laptops can take advantage of the touch support in Windows 8.

The ; has a decent design, midrange configuration, and a touch screen, all for a very reasonable price.

While slim and reasonably attractive, this is still a plastic laptop. The weak battery keeps it from being a great road system.

For under $700, the Acer Aspire V5 proves that a touch screen can work in a budget-priced Windows 8 laptop without cutting too many corners.
