Not as fast as i expected, and have to keep it plugged in most of the time. Perhaps i expected too much.

Excellent lap top, excellent customer service.

It’s slim and it’s lighter than my last one. It did take a while to get used to windows 8 but worth it. Here are the specifications for the Aspire Acer V5-571G 15:

  • Enter your model number
    to make sure this fits.
  • Dedicated Nvidia GeForce graphics
  • Acer Instant Connect allows the V5 to connect to the Internet 4x faster than a standard notebook
  • USB 3.0 allows for transfer speeds, up to 10x faster than USB 2.0
  • Ergonomic Thermal Comfort – smart component placement and mechanical design allows for optimised slimness and cool operation
  • Video chat using the Acer Crystal Eye HD webcam

Ehm i had a few problems with ordering but that’s probably my fault ^_^ anyways, this laptop is a serious machine for the cash, well worth the money, its fast, efficient and reliable. The only problem i found is thet after time theleft mouse buttons starts to bend in but it is not a major issue 🙂 had almost a month now.

Good product overall, with some minor faults. It is a very smart looking laptop with a nice backlit keyboard finish and a nicely spaced keyboard. It has dedicated graphics for all the gamers whilst also supporting an i5 processor which is always useful for everyday multitasking and the odd bit of gaming. One issue i have with the laptop is it’s very short battery life and how you would have to frequently plug in a power source. I would also say that it overheats to an extent and this does sometimes affect the performance. However with that said, i would recommend this laptop as it is a very good budget laptop with pace and style perfect for any university student providing that it doesn’t weigh too much :)peace.

Reviews from purchasers :

  • New windows 8 laptop for the family
  • Acer Aspire laptop-love it!
  • good all rounder

Good product from a fantastic manufacturer as usual. The product works great for it’s price and has been very useful around the house. Everybody works on it and has been very responsive too.

Suitable for customers who enjoy non intensive games. It’s equipped with an ivy bridge processor. The processor will run most applications well and has turbo boost up to 2. This version of the nvidia gt 620m is similar to the older gt 540m. Graphics card info in comments. Pros:-good value-energy efficient-i5 ivy bridge processor-dedicated graphics card-nice keyboardcons:-dodgy wifi connection-touch pad can be annoying because there are no separate buttons-battery life is not great-switchable graphics may baffleedit: have been using it for over a month now and the wifi has improved, this may have been a fault with the hub.

Good value laptop, speedy, good graphics and feels very solid although it is the standard acer plastic. He’s never off it and plays all of his pc games – halo etc. Just wish he’d pay as much attention to me as he does this laptop.

All working perfectly, getting used to windows 8 although for me windows 7 was good enough and if it aint broke don’t fix it. What i particularly like about his model is the backlit keyboard which is an absolute boon in fading light and with the i5 processor this has to be a good value product providing it continues to work well as i believe acer don’t have the best reputation for reliability.

Pretty good once you get used to windows 8. Pretty good product once you get used to windows 8. I had problems in uploading some of my old programs that run with xp resulting in the computer crashing. Now getting used to working around windows 8. Very happy with the design, very sleek laptop. The screen is good while you use it outside in bright light.

I bought this for my daughter after her hand-me-down laptop from an elder brother failed. She has been using it for some months without problems.

I’m pretty thorough when buying new tech so naturally i spent a few days (and some nights) contemplating what laptop i wanted to invest in. I needed a laptop that would be light and portable enough to use around the house without feeling bulked down by an electronic slab, i wanted to be in the bedroom or downstairs watching tv instead of being stuck in a room upstairs all day. I’m one of your general “life revolves around the computer” sort of geeks, so if i’m not playing a game i’ll be browsing blogs, watching youtube videos (hundreds and hundreds) and so on. The main factors i looked for in my search were:- portability- aesthetics- power (notably gaming potential)- touch pad size, and- keyboard layouti won’t plaster my review with specifications that you can find elsewhere. The laptop is light, extremely thin (picture’s probably don’t do it justice), and looks gorgeous in an all-matt-black finish. The design is very minimalist and lovely to look at. I had been comparing this laptop with its equally-ample brother, the v3-571g. At the time of writing amazon is selling both laptops at around the same price for a similar specification. If you are also comparing these two laptops then my review may not help you and you’re going to have to go with your heart.

Before purchasing this laptop i did a lot of research due to my limited budget. For under £400 there are few better laptops on the market. Pros – very quick , great keyboard which is backlit , clear screen ,very quiet and cool even when running many applications ,game card and camera are excellent and it has good build quality and looks more expensive than it is. No indicator light for caps lock and number lock which is slightly annoying and slightly sensitive mouse pad. All in ,well worth the money and great to use and the cons are just very slight issues. Windows 8 is not to everyones liking , however offers a ‘desktop’ mode for those more familar with windows 7/vista.

I am able to run the games and programs that i want to run on it and since putting a ssd into it, it runs like its on firethe major problem with this is that it has windows 8 on it.

I spent long hours searching for the perfect laptop. I went to the shop, searched online and compared prices for value for money. Main reason being the stand-alone graphics card, as i wanted to play games, especially the sims 3 (big fan). And i must say it is running as smoothly on this as it does on a powerful desktop. The second thing i was looking for was a good fast processor, i3 or up. And when i found that this one has i5, i was pretty much sold. The 3rd thing, i was looking at was ram, and this one has 4gb which is not bad, you can alwasy upgrade to 8gb and it is not that expensive, compared to the price you would pay for a laptop that already has 8gb ram. 4th thing (and the thing that i really, really liked) was the design – all black, which was something other acers were not; so slim and still managed to have a cd/dvd drive.
