Comment

Series:

The Aspire V5 has a plastics body and is slimmer and with 2 kg also lighter than the competition. Acer has targeted users looking for a portable machine. In many aspects, this device is average in its class and does not stand out. The 15.6 inch capacitive touchscreen features a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and supports 10-point inputs, which is perfect for the pre-installed Windows 8. Colors are bright and crisp, and the viewing angles leave nothing to complain about. The full-sized chiclet keyboard with number pad offers a decent typing experience. In addition, it comes with an extra- large clickable touchpad with support for Windows 8 gestures.

Inside the Aspire V5 there is a 750GB hard drive, which is a decent amount of storage, and a 1.8GHz Intel Core i3-3217U ULV dual core processor. The performance is sufficient when compared to competitors of the same price range. It can handle light multimedia tasks easily, but is not suitable for hardcore gaming. But, casual social games are not a problem. Considering how thin and light the build is, battery life is a concern. Unfortunately, the Acer Aspire V5 fares much, much worse than the competition here. Overall, this is a good looking, well designed machine for an affordable price. Battery life is its main shortcoming, but if that’s not an issue, the Acer Aspire V5 is great value.

AMD Radeon HD 8280:

An integrated GCN-based GPU with 128 shader units and no dedicated VRAM. It is typically clocked at 450 MHz and paired with AMD E2-3000 "Kabini" APUs.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Quad-core APU for ultraportables and tablets. Codenamed "Temash", it is based on the Jaguar architecture and integrates a Radeon HD 8250 graphics card.

11.6":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
