Quad-core midget. With the new Acer Aspire V5-122P, we get to test the first notebook with AMD's brand new, energy-efficient A6 quad-core processor even before the official release. Here you can read how well the 11.6-inch midget with its IPS touchscreen does. But psst, everything is still top secret!
70% Acer Aspire V5-122P review - a value laptop better than most
Source: PC Advisor English
If you're on a tight budget then the Acer V5-122P may prove quite a good value for money laptop. Its computing speed is low, but the build quality and screen are definitely above average for a bottom-dollar laptop. Unfortunately, the battery life is a real weakness, and could prove to be a deal-breaker for many people.

The $449 Acer Aspire V5-122P is an affordable and lightweight choice for those looking for a Windows 8 laptop with a touch-screen display. There's enough performance here for most computing tasks, and the keyboard is fairly comfortable. However, the $399 HP TouchSmart 11z lasts far longer on a single charge and also offers a touch-screen experience in an equally compact form factor.

The Acer Aspire V5-122P reminds us of the long-departed netbook, both for its body and its performance. Even the battery is disappointing. It's an even greater shame given that for once we find a laptop with a decent screen. For the over £350 that our model costs, you might as well get a tablet.

A laptop that could have been a solidly portable machine is let down by a below-average battery performance and some annoying usability frustrations. While it could serve as a first-time laptop or an office-supplied backup, we would advise looking at the competition first.

Comment

Model:

The Acer Aspire V5-122P-61454G50NSS is a new 11.6 inch Windows 8 notebook. Its case looks like brushed aluminum look, which has almost become standard, but it is actually made from plastics. Nevertheless, it is sturdy and the hinges appear to be high-end. With just 1.38 kg, the laptop is feather-light, making it great for toting around. The backlit keyboard is surprisingly spacious despite the small size of the device, and will work great for those who need to work on the go. The touchpad is small, but seems comfortable and responsive. The IPS panel with a resolution of 1366x768 pixels provides great colors, but will fall behind full HD laptops. It is not that bad for a 11.6 inch screen though.

This machine is powered by a Jaguar APU AMD's A6-1450 with a clock speed of 1.0 GHz and an AMD Radeon HD 8250. Due to low clock speed, this machine might be a little slower than most Intel devices, which generally clock at 1.3 GHz and higher. In terms of graphics, the AMD Radeon HD 8250 can even keep up with the Intel competition. This is not the machine for gaming, even slightly demanding casual games may run users into trouble as this graphics card is not really meant for gaming. The battery life is about on par with mid-range competitors, but it should last long enough for normal usage. Because of its nice touchscreen and its good build quality the Acer is suitable choice for those looking for a portable machine for web browsing and word processing.

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 8250: Integrated graphics card of the AMD A6-1450 APU ("Temash"). Based on the GCN architecture, integrates 128 shader units and is clocked at 300 - 400 MHz.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

A6-1450:

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.

1.38 kg:

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


Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


67.42%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
