78% Review Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 Notebook | Notebookcheck
Touch on a budget. Acer's touchscreen-equipped Aspire V5-571P-6499 is a slim and affordable, yet stylish 15.6-inch notebook featuring a low-voltage Intel Core i5 processor, a 500GB conventional hard drive, and 4GB RAM. Is the touchscreen enough to differentiate this otherwise mainstream notebook from its competition?
Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 Review: Windows 8 Touchscreen on a Budget
Source: Notebooks.com English
Do proper diligence and study whether a Windows 8 computer will fit your workflow. Acer offers an acceptable machine for people who know they want the new OS and can’t afford one of the great new Windows 8 ultabooks we saw at CES 2013, like the HP EliteBook Resolve or the Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S. Right now the Microsoft online store offers this machine at a great price of $599.99. That seems like the right price and makes it easy to recommend, so long a the buyer knows they’re getting a budget touchscreen laptop. Otherwise Amazon sells it for $699.99, which makes the decision tougher. For only $100 more users will get a better experience with the smaller 11-inch Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga 11S with swiveling display that works in a tablet mode.

For the past few years we've been impressed by Acer's 15-inch Aspire laptops—not for their looks, but for their ability to deliver above-average performance and features for a budget price.A thrifty price and big, responsive touch screen make the Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 a pleasant way to make your acquaintance with Windows 8. It's also surprisingly slim for a 15-inch budget notebook, but miscellaneous gripes keep it from perfection.

50% Acer Aspire V5 review: beauty and no brains
Source: PC World English
The Acer Aspire V5 is a pretty sleek laptop at first glance. But don’t be fooled by its silky-smooth silver exterior – there’s not a whole lot going on inside this laptop. Sure, it’s got its strengths: the touchscreen is responsive and smooth, and video looks and sounds pretty good. But it’s got a heck of a lot more weaknesses, such as poor overall performance, lower-than-average battery life, a strangely loud fan, and a noticeably low screen resolution.

In many ways the Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 is a satisfying Windows 8 notebook, combining an accurate touch screen, good performance and robust audio. Still, with an anemic battery life of just over 4 hours, you won't want to leave home without the power brick. (Fortunately, you likely won't be traveling much with this 15-inch system.) Another strike against the V5-571P is its wonky touchpad, which had some trouble with Widows 8 gestures.

70% A touch-screen Windows 8 laptop for less
Source: CNet English
After starting with high-end proof-of-concept models such as the Acer Aspire S7 and Lenovo IdeaPad Yoga, touch screens are moving into mainstream Windows 8 laptops. For under $700, the Acer Aspire V5 proves that a touch screen can work in a budget-priced Windows 8 laptop without cutting too many corners.

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 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models. Offers a different clock speed in the different CPU models (ULV to desktop quad core) and therefore a different performance.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

3317U: Ivy-Bridge-based ULV-CPU in Q2 2012. Offers a core clock of 1.7 - 2.6 GHz and an HD 4000 GPU (350 - 1050 MHz). The TDP is rated at 17 W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
