Conclusion: Of course, that's assuming your computing needs include Windows and a built-in keyboard. Otherwise, you may be tempted by a tablet—or by one of the many hybrid, convertible, detachable, or dockable tablet/ultrabook combos expected to arrive with the advent of Windows 8. Your number of 3-pounds-or-less, $600-or-less choices is likely to increase before long, but that won't diminish the Acer's slightly retro appeal.
Pros: Core i5 processor and 500GB hard drive, Sharp, bright screen, Light weight, Full set of ports, Removable battery
Cons: Humdrum design, Crunchy keys, Short keyboard deck, Fan noise, Brief battery life
Excerpt: Mini ultrabook. A handy 11.6-inch notebook with a low-voltage Core i5, USB 3.0 and HD 4000. The Aspire costs significantly less than an entry-level ultrabook, but falls short of a few mobility factors. One year ago, Acer started the ultrabook era with the Aspire S3-951-6646 . Since then, the next generation processors (Ivy Bridge) became available in the successor and the price of 700 Euros (~$901) for an entry-level ultrabook remained the same.
Pros: Light, handy, Easy maintenance access, Good battery life
Cons: Barely sufficient battery life, Flexible chassis, High temperatures under load, TFT not anti-glare, Wobbly keyboard, No AC adapter
Acer Aspire V5 review: an 11-inch Ivy Bridge laptop for $550
23 August 2012
Summary: If you're in the market for an 11-inch notebook, you could do much worse than the Aspire V5-171-6869. It packs some of the most robust specs amongst machines with its form factor, including a Core i5 processor and 500GB of storage, and we think its keyboard is comfortable considering the limited space. But if you have a little more room in your backpack (and wallet), you can do better with a bigger machine, as you can expect longer battery life and a roomier keyboard.
Pros: Light, compact design, Good specs for price
Cons: Sticky touchpad, Cramped keyboard, Unimpressive battery life
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire V5 is no powerhouse. It’s also doesn’t offer outstanding endurance, or a great display or groundbreaking design. The V5 is relying on two features: It’s inexpensive, and it’s light.
Pros: Good build quality, Fast processor for the price
Cons: Hot running at load, Short battery life, Lackluster overall performance, Clunky touchpad
