A laptop packed with well-chosen features, including a great screen, powerful battery and Intel-integrated graphics chip. We were not expecting much from the Aspire V3, but we were pleased to find that it’s a very capable budget laptop with fast performance, good battery life and a comfortable keyboard.

The Acer Aspire V3-571 is a great example of just how much can be achieved within the constraints of a severely limited budget. Gamers will need to set their sights a little higher, and it isn’t particularly convincing in sound reproduction. Overall though, it does a remarkable job, providing pace and a pleasing user experience enhanced by the appearance of some of the better input devices we’ve seen at this price level. Snap one up while you still can.

It’s a nice unit – pity about the shiny black – it seems very responsive and the video compression ran very swiftly. However the battery use seemed very heavy to me when the specifications say 4.5 hours that’s what I expect. A full recharge (while off) took 90minutes.As with most notebooks the screen is reflective which can mean it’s difficult to read with a strong light behind you.

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.
