Reviews for the Acer Aspire V7-482PG-6629
Anyway you slice it the Acer Aspire V7 is an odd duck in the notebook world. It strikes an interesting compromise giving Ultrabook users a more capable machine while adding a smaller, lighter option for 14-inch laptop lovers. At the same time the Acer has an identity of its own offering users a lot without breaking the bank. WIth a stunning screen and great speakers, it a perfect media viewing device.

It has been a long time since we've awarded an Editors' Choice for midrange ultrabooks, because the space has been evolving over the past three years. Systems like the Lenovo IdeaPad U430 Touch have moved down in price with lower-resolution screens and spinning hard drives, while high-end ultrabooks, like the Editors' Choice Samsung ATIV Book 9 Plus$1,259.96 at Amazon, have moved upmarket with QHD+ (3,200-by-1,800 resolution) screens, all-day battery life, speedy SSD-only configurations, and lofty price tags. The Acer Aspire V7-482PG-6629 excels in the middle, with a 1080p HD screen and discrete graphics balancing the price savings from its hybrid-drive configuration.

The Acer Aspire V7 is a portable 15.6 inch laptop and also a comfortable desktop replacement. It features a great battery life and looks very elegant. With a weight of 2 kg and a height of 24mm, it is remarkably thin. Nevertheless it looks spacious and not at all cramped for good productivity. The well built chassis is easily able to house a full-sized, backlit keyboard with a number pad. Its touch screen supports 10-point inputs. The screen resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels is disappointing, but the screen size is perfect for Windows 8 touch use.
The Aspire V7 features the fourth generation Intel Core i7-4500U CPU with a clock rate of 1.8GHz. The lack of a discrete graphics continues the disappointing resolution. So, the device is suitable for casual gamers. Another disadvantage is, that it only features a single USB 3.0 port. But, the sound system is a delight, with the rare ability to produce a decent amount of bass. The location of the speakers on the underside of the laptop is a little unfortunate. Soft surface will muffle the audio. Overall, this machine is a well built and good looking portable or desktop replacement for less intensive tasks with a great battery life. For all that it sets out to be, it definitely beats the competition.
