Summary: Touch to play. After reviewing the ultrabook-like Acer Aspire V5, we now put our hands on the Acer Aspire V7-582PG. The Full HD touchscreen is to ensure easy use of the Metro interface.
Pros: Slim and light casing, Decent build, Screen features good color reproduction, Good touch functionality, Gaming suitable due to GeForce GT 750M, Full HD resolution, The compact build and workmanship are on a high standard. Furthermore, the gaming performance is very good for such a portable compan...
Cons: Poor outdoor suitability due to the highly reflective touchscreen, Low performance in battery mode, The screen is extremely reflective and barely suitable for outdoor use.
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire V7-582P-6673 just meets Intel's updated ultrabook specs, but while it is functionally an ultrabook it is spiritually a desktop replacement laptop with a large 15.6-inch screen.
Pros: 10-point multi-touch Large screen. SSD cache drive+500GB hard drive. 8GB of memory. 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi support. Four speakers with room-filling sound.
Cons: 1,366 by 768 resolution a little low. Some bloatware. Some ports are inconveniently placed. Slippery keyboard.
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire V7 is all about power. In our performance tests it blows away most competitors by posting processor scores 20 percent higher than average and doubling the performance of Intel HD 4600 in 3D games.
Pros: Outstanding 1080p display, Loud, pleasant speakers, Very strong performance, Discrete GPU allows for smooth gaming
Cons: Build quality could be better, Keyboard and touchpad don’t impress, Below average battery life (for a 4th-gen Ultrabook), Extremely hot at load
Conclusion: As I mentioned in the introduction, every computer and laptop ends up being a balance between various goals. If you want a faster CPU and GPU, price will inevitably go up but so will the cooling requirements, which in turn means a heavier laptop.

Cons: Glossy display with only middling brightness, Poor color reproduction, Low contrast ratio for its class, Keystrokes are short and unsatisfying, A bit cumbersome for an Ultrabook, A much better screen and a more comfortable keyboard
Summary: While the Aspire V7 is an attractive laptop that can handle long hours of everyday Web browsing, it lacks any crucial selling points, and its excellent battery life is offset by its heftiness.
Summary: Can portability and performance coexist in one Ultrabook?

After spending some more time with it I was continuously impressed with the display's visual fidelity. I was stunned by the panels sharp resolution and great colors working in Photoshop. ...
Cons: Rough trackpad, Loaded with bloatware, Short battery life, The Acer Aspire V7 might tip towards the Ultrabook size and weight, but it does not inherit the same long battery life as many small notebooks.
