Reviews for the Acer Aspire E1-470P-6659
Basically basic. Cramming as much computer as possible into a case for $400 is a challenging and often perilous task. With their Aspire E1-470P, Acer takes another swipe at low-cost leadership in the Windows touchscreen category of devices. Was it worth the effort?

You don’t expect perfection for £350, but the Acer Aspire E1 puts in a good all-round performance for the money. The specification is generous, the performance ample and – at this price – it’s easy to forgive the mediocre battery life.
