Aspire V5 Touch

 

Acer has updated its Apsire V5 with a touch-enabled screen to take full advantage of Windows 8. The V5 Touch has the power to get you through normal office tasks and web surfing with its Core i5 processor and 6GB of RAM, but TrustedReviews says despite...

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

 

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

Light, compact designGood specs for price

Sticky touchpadCramped keyboardUnimpressive battery life

If you're in the market for an 11-inch notebook, you could do much worse than the Aspire V5-171-6869. It packs some of the most robust specs amongst machines with its form factor, including a Core i5 processor and 500GB of storage, and we think its...

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 V5 review: Sexy-looking V5-552G-X414 is only a competent performer

 

The V5-552G is an all-purpose, 15-inch laptop with a handsome design as well as decent everyday performance and gaming. But the odd-feeling touchpad click mechanism irks.

Large display ; Better-than-average gaming performance at 1024 by 768 ; Attractive industrial design

Too much travel in the trackpad ; Difficult-to-access memory slots and hard-drive bay ; Lots of bloatware

If you need a notebook with a large display, Acer's V5 is a well-priced solution. Just don't expect knock-your-socks-off performance.

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
