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

Hold me closer, tiny Acer: Aspire V5-171 is a mini-priced ultrabook-level mini laptop

20 January 2013
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire V5-171-6867 crams the horsepower of a full-fledged budget ultrabook into an 11-inch ultraportable, for several hundred dollars less than most equivalent products. It's a great budget laptop to consider, but sacrifices have been made to shrink down that much computer into a tiny package.
  • Cons: It has a cramped-feeling keyboard and touch pad, weak battery life, and poor speakers, plus an uninspired, thick design.

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. Touch is the justification for this model’s unusually high price, yet Acer hasn’t made any effort to integrate the touch experience into the laptop. The screen is too far away to reach comfortably, and the laptop is too large and heavy to constantly move about. Using it proved a chore rather than a pleasure.
  • 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

Acer adds a touch screen to the inexpensive Aspire V5

16 November 2012
  • Summary: For under $700, the Acer Aspire V5 proves that a touch screen can work in a budget-priced Windows 8 laptop without cutting too many corners.
  • Cons: While slim and reasonably attractive, this is still a plastic laptop. The weak battery keeps it from being a great road system.
