Summary: Overall, we prefer the Lenovo IdeaPad Y500, which for just $50 more (through Newegg) offers a brilliant 1080p display, an SSD to complement its 1TB hard drive and dual Nvidia GeForce GT 650 GPUs. Although you don't get a touch screen.
Summary: In this price range, we prefer the $599 Dell Inspiron 15R . Yes, it's bulkier, but it offers a more attractive design, a better keyboard, and longer battery life, making it worth the $70 premium over the Acer.
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.
