Reviews for the Acer Aspire V7-582P-6673
Stamina and Style? Acer’s latest touchscreen-equipped Ultrabook might seem a bit large for its sake, but its promise of great battery life and strong performance make a compelling argument nonetheless. Is it worthy of consideration?

The Acer Aspire V7-582P-6673 is a decent, middle-of-the-road laptop with a lot of good features, with not to many bad ones. Aside from the possible deal-breaker in the slippery keyboard, you should place the V7-582P-6673 on your shopping list if you need a well-built desktop replacement laptop that will last you the four to six years for junior and senior high school or college. The Lenovo IdeaPad Z400 Touch holds on to its Editors' Choice for now, on account of its better price and more compact size.

The Acer Aspire V7-582P-6673 is a slender, Windows 8 touchscreen ultrabook. The aluminum chassis has a minimalist design and is sturdy. The 15.6 inch display sports a disappointing 1366 x 768 resolution, but the colors seem nice enough, and viewing angles are great. The screen could use a boost in brightness though, coming in well behind the most of the competition out there. The keyboard is nicely laid out and responsive, as are touchpad and touchscreen. Weighing in at 2.2kg, this ultrabook is amongst the lightest of its class, though it is a little bit wider.
Powered by a 1.6-GHz Intel Core i5-4200U along with 8GB of RAM, the Acer Aspire V7-582P-6673 is a little bit behind the competition. However, most light to moderate tasks will run well. With its Intel HD Graphics 4400 card, it is not a machine for gamers, and again most of the competition will beat it. Most moderately heavy games will bog it down. But it shines in battery life. This machine can easily last a full day of heavy use, which is much better than all its competitors. It's a pretty machine with a good battery life, but for its price tag it seems like the Acer Aspire V7-582P-6673 just isn't a good choice. The disappointing screen and the lack of power might not be worth it.
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.
