Acer Aspire V5-171-6675

LAPTOP Magazine
26 February 2013
  • Summary: Acer's V5-171-6675 offers speedy performance, a comfortable keyboard and great portability at a budget-friendly price. You won't find a more feature-rich 11-inch machine for $449. However, unless you plan on using this Acer mostly in your living room or near an outlet, we don't recommend it. Less than 4 hours of juice is just sad. If you're willing to spend a little more, we'd get the $499 ASUS Q200.
  • Pros: Compact design, Crisp display, Impressive overall performance for a budget price
  • Cons: Very short battery life, Inconsistent touchpad, Low-grade speakers

Acer Aspire V5 Touch Review

21 November 2012
  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire V5 is only competitive as an entry-level laptop. Jacking the price up to $730 without addressing battery life or performance has predictable results.
  • Pros: Low power draw, Inexpensive for a touchscreen laptop
  • Cons: Unpleasant keyboard and touchpad, Touchscreen use seems an afterthought, Short battery life, Lackluster performance, Poor hardware value

  • Excerpt: Several of the machines in this test include Intel Core i5 processors, but this Acer's chip doesn't use Intel's latest Haswell type. Instead the Aspire V5 makes do with last year's Ivy Bridge, but we can forgive that when its £499 price is the second-cheapest here. See also Group test: what's the best budget laptop?
