Reviews for the Acer Aspire V5-571P-53316G50Mass
Finally manufacturers seem to be releasing a good range of touch notebooks. As far as my tests are concerned this is the only real reason to ‘upgrade’ to Windows 8. While I have reviewed large panels with touch why would you sit so close as to be able to use it.

The V5 Touch doesn’t know quite where it fits, it’s not a performance powerhouse but neither is it a budget laptop. The touchscreen functionality, keyboard and trackpad make for a great user experience, but it does feel like corners have been cut to accommodate the premium aspects of the laptop. For £600, we’re not sure all the sacrifices - particularly the mediocre battery and average screen - were always worth it. For basic tasks such as writing and browsing, you’ll be happy enough, but if you’re hoping to navigate Windows 8 using touch you may find some of its rivals offer a smoother experience.

There's a fair lot of good to be said for the Acer Aspire V5 Touch from a specs point of view. For the money there's a whack of power on offer and that'll make this machine an attractive prospect, particularly as - despite its bulk and 2.3kg weight - there's scope to transport it and make the most out of touch-based Windows 8. However everything's just a bit slow to get moving: it takes too long to boot up or wake from sleep, and delays in loading up software seem unfounded, given the specification. The so-so screen resolution is also met with a washed-out, display with a limited viewing angle that's just altogether average.

The Aspire V5 has a plastics body and is slimmer and with 2 kg also lighter than the competition. Acer has targeted users looking for a portable machine. In many aspects, this device is average in its class and does not stand out. The 15.6 inch capacitive touchscreen features a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels and supports 10-point inputs, which is perfect for the pre-installed Windows 8. Colors are bright and crisp, and the viewing angles leave nothing to complain about. The full-sized chiclet keyboard with number pad offers a decent typing experience. In addition, it comes with an extra- large clickable touchpad with support for Windows 8 gestures.
Inside the Aspire V5 there is a 750GB hard drive, which is a decent amount of storage, and a 1.8GHz Intel Core i3-3217U ULV dual core processor. The performance is sufficient when compared to competitors of the same price range. It can handle light multimedia tasks easily, but is not suitable for hardcore gaming. But, casual social games are not a problem. Considering how thin and light the build is, battery life is a concern. Unfortunately, the Acer Aspire V5 fares much, much worse than the competition here. Overall, this is a good looking, well designed machine for an affordable price. Battery life is its main shortcoming, but if that’s not an issue, the Acer Aspire V5 is great value.Intel HD Graphics 4000: Processor graphics card in the high end Ivy Bridge models.
