Reviews for the Acer Aspire V3-574G-51ZI
Seriously, this is 2015 — near the end of it, even — and we’re still seeing displays that look like they came out of 2011 or 2012. No, Acer. Just say no, and next time throw in something decent, because until the Acer Aspire V15 drops below a grand, it’s hard to recommend, even though the rest of its parts aren’t bad performers, because the way of using the laptop — that whole screen thing — kind of dents the entire experience.

The latest Aspire V15 model is slim, reasonably light and looks and feels well finished, the aluminium top panel in particular providing a classy touch. Its performance is easily good enough for everyday use like surfing the web and routine business tasks and the screen is particularly impressive making it a good choice for watching videos.
