Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 Review: Windows 8 Touchscreen on a Budget

24 July 2013
  • Excerpt: With the release of a slew of Windows 8 touchscreen laptops, buyers will struggle to find a decent computer at the low-end. The Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 attempts to fit in that space for $699 retail and is now on sale for less just months after its first release. Fitting decent specs into a computer with a touchscreen for under $700 must challenge OEM engineers, but Acer tried it.
  • Pros: Thin and sleek, Attractive looking, Includes touchscreen, Full size keyboard with number pad, Great touchpad
  • Cons: Poor battery life, Runs Windows 8, Plastic body feels cheap, Dongle needed for VGA and Ethernet

Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
26 March 2013
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814 packs fairly robust specs and graphics performance into a sleek package. For $999, consumers walk away with a touch screen notebook that can run some of the more taxing games on the market. However, we'd hope for a sharper and brighter display at this price, and you get only 3.5 hours of battery life.

Acer Aspire V5-571 Review

9 January 2013
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire V5-571 uses a second-generation Core i3 processor but has enough muscle to handle medium to slightly heavyweight applications. Rest assured, multitasking (multiple light applications) with antivirus running in the background will be a breeze. However, intensive tasks such as advanced photo editing using Photoshop or LIghtroom will make this laptop stutter.

Expert Review

31 December 2012
  • Conclusion: And Acer has ensured that it'll be part of that trend with its most mainstream laptop line. As we said at the beginning, we've found the 15-inch Aspire to be an affordable and likable solution in the past, and we'd have no trouble getting used to it with sleeker, inch-thin design; capable Core i5 performance; and an excellent touch screen—not to mention the couple of hundred dollars extra that buying a V5-571P-6499 would leave in our bank account.
  • Pros: Low price, Slim design, Onboard optical drive, Spacious, responsive touch screen, Backlit keyboard
  • Cons: Mediocre Webcam, Weak speakers, LAN and VGA connections require included dongle

Acer adds a touch screen to the inexpensive Aspire V5

30 December 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.
  • Pros: The Acer Aspire V5 has a decent design, midrange configuration, and a touch screen, all for a very reasonable price.
  • Cons: While slim and reasonably attractive, this is still a plastic laptop. The weak battery keeps it from being a great road system.

Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
26 November 2012
  • Summary: In many ways the Acer Aspire V5-571P-6499 is a satisfying Windows 8 notebook, combining an accurate touch screen, good performance and robust audio. Still, with an anemic battery life of just over 4 hours, you won't want to leave home without the power brick. (Fortunately, you likely won't be traveling much with this 15-inch system.) Another strike against the V5-571P is its wonky touchpad, which had some trouble with Widows 8 gestures.

PC Magazine
27 October 2012
  • Conclusion: The Acer Aspire V5-571-6891 comes in as a price leader: under $500, yet it's a fully functional desktop replacement laptop rather than the stripped down netbook that you'd expect for so few ducats.
  • Pros: Great Price. 6GB of memory. Full keyboard including numeric keypad. Core i3 processor with Intel HD 4000 Graphics. 2.4GHz and 5GHz Wi-Fi. Good speakers and sound.
  • Cons: No Touch screen. Only one USB 3.0 port. Dongle for Ethernet and VGA. Bloatware in desktop mode.
