Excerpt: The Acer Aspire V3 is a quality multimedia laptop with a full HD matte screen and pretty good graphics punch. (3.5 out of 5) While 2-in-1 hybrid notebooks are getting a lot of attention, there are still a healthy amount of shoppers looking for a traditional big-screen notebook with plenty of power.
Pros: Gorgeous 1080p display, Powerful speakers, Excellent keyboard, Good graphics performance for the money
Cons: Faux metal design, Slow hard drive, Relatively short battery life, Grainy webcam
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire V3-772G-9402 is a gaming laptop that delivers decent overall performance, a large, bright display and good battery life. However, the hard drive is lacking and does not have a solid-state drive for cache purposes.
Conclusion: But we'd at least like the V3 to ship with a 750GB hard drive. And ideally, we'd like to see a solid-state cache as well, even if it's only 8GB. That feature can go a long way toward making a system feel snappier. As is, unless your budget's truly tight, we'd suggest you spend a little more for either the Lenovo Y510p or Acer's model V3-772G-9460.
Pros: Decent gaming performance for the price, Big, bright matte display, Roomy, comfortable keyboard, Good battery life (for a gaming laptop)
Cons: Hard drive is cramped and lacks solid-state cache, Keyboard isn't backlit
Summary: If you are looking for a cheap laptop, the Acer Aspire V3 series is definitely an upgrade from older laptop models and clunky old desktops. With all the upgrades you can turn this laptop into a pretty efficient computer, but if you are going to spend that kind of dough, you should probably look elsewhere.
Pros: This laptop has multiple ports including two USB 3.0 ports and an SD card reader.
Cons: It can only reach up to 2.7GHz processing speeds.
Summary: For $499, the Acer Aspire V3-551-8458 offers Windows 8 notebook shoppers who are on a budget a vivid display and surprisingly strong graphics performance, plus a comfortable keyboard. The touchpad buttons are on the mushy side, and the speakers don't wow, but overall the V3 is one of the better laptops you'll find for less than $500.
Excerpt: Acer’s V3 is a well-priced, decent-performing desktop replacement goes against the current trend towards smaller, thinner more mobile laptops. What it sacrifices in portability though, it makes up for in screen real estate, an expansive keyboard and computing power.
Conclusion: With their Aspire V3-571G, Acer undoubtedly brings an attractive device to the market. The multimedia notebook's outstanding main feature is its good Full HD display , which is currently matchless and exactly the right response to the still numerous "0815" glossy panels. With a crisp resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, very good contrast and brightness values and excellent viewing angle stability (thanks to the IPS technology ), compared with the similarly priced competition...
Pros: Matte FullHD IPS display, Good application and 3D performance, Temperature remains low, The high-quality IPS display with Full HD resolution and good picture quality in an 800 Euros (~$1045) multimedia notebook is nowhere else to be found.
Cons: Average manufacturing quality, Connections all in the front, Moderate speaker quality, Unexceptional battery life
Conclusion: We found the Acer Aspire V3-771G-7361161.12TBDCakk lacking a Full HD display. The Acer Aspire V3-771G-736B161TMaii successor fixed this shortcoming: The 1920x1080 pixel LC display of the 17.3-incher is very bright , contrast-rich and convinces with wide viewing angles . While the predecessor featured a glare-type display, the Acer now comes with an anti-glare screen. In addition, the case no longer has a piano black finish .
Pros: matte FullHD display, decent system performance, decent 3D performance, acceptable system noise, moderate temperature increase, decent sound, comfortable keyboard, The Acer offers a lot of performance reserves and can also run current games, but not at maximum details and resolution.
Cons: no SSD, no BluRay drive, all interfaces near the front of the sides, A Blu-ray drive to meet its multimedia claim and an SSD, which would make the Aspire V3-771G-736B161TMaii even faster. The Acer Aspire V3-771G-7361161.12TBDCakk predecessor shows how to do it right.
