Reviews for the Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644
Affordable touch. Want the full Windows 8 experience but don’t want to spend a fortune? Acer’s M5-481PT touchscreen Ultrabook might be just the ticket. But can it check all the major boxes, or do its compromises outweigh its benefits?

Solid performance, a responsive touch screen, and a reasonable price tag are just a few reasons why the Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644 should be at the top of your ultrabook shopping list. Granted, it doesn’t have a 1080p screen like the Asus Zenbook Prime Touch UX31A-BHI5T, but its performance is nearly identical and it’s around $470 cheaper.
