Reviews for the Acer Aspire V5-471P

50% Acer Aspire V5-471P Review
Source: Think Digit English
The Acer Aspire V5-471P is an ideal machine for those who are looking at an entry-level Windows 8 machine with a touchscreen. Students are the first candidates that come to mind. At Rs. 39,139 we think it is a tad expensive specially considering an older processor and issues with the display and the battery life. Under Rs. 35,000 this would make for a good purchase if you can overlook its issues. We would really like it if they bundled an Ivy Bridge generation chip. If you want to run heavier applications then you should probably look at Core i5 version of this laptop.

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.

Intel HD Graphics 3000: Integrated graphics card in the Intel Sandy Bridge processors (Core ix-2xxx). The HD 3000 is the faster (internally GT2 called) version with 12 Execution Units (EUs).

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

2365M: Power efficient ULV processor clocked at 1.4 GHz without Turbo boost. Offers an integrated HD 3000 clocked at slow 350 / 1000 MHz and a DDR3-1333 memory controller. The difference to the similar Core i3-2367M is just the Small Business Advantage (SBA) support (needed for the Ultrabook logo).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


Above all, this display size is used for subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles. For all three types, this size is quite large. The biggest variety of subnotebooks is represented with this 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.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.

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.

50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
