Rated 5 out of 5 by cgreen fab little notebook
I bought the acer aspire v5 to upgrade from and acer aspire 5542 that I have had for about 8 years and is in need of repair. I do like acer laptops as they are well made and value for money. I must admit I was a little nervous buying a notebook as they are smaller than I am used to, but I need not had worried I love my new purchase. it's light and uber portable, an ideal buy for a student looking for a decent computer that wont break their bank account. The touch screen is the icing on the cake. the picture quality is fab, which is as I expect from an acer, sound is loud and clear. battery lasts fairly well for a notebook. windows 8 is not has difficult to use as some reviews on the net would suggest, if you can use a smart phone you can use windows 8. my only niggle so far would be the webcam quality as it isn't as good as the one on my other acer laptop, but that's a small thing to me. with 500gb storage it has plenty of room for storing photo's, films etc I find windows 8 is fab for uploading photos to social media accounts I recently uploaded 538 from a recent Disney trip without any fuss at all. would I recommend the acer v5, yes I would. good quality at a decent price, easy to set up and use. at the time of buying I even received a free starter kit containing a quality laptop bag, headphone set and Kaspersky internet security.

Decent spec of AMD A6 chip + 4GB Ram + 500GB HDD for this price point. Running Windows 8 complete with touch screen is a bonus. Only downside for some may be the lack of connectivity plus no optical drive - however these shortfalls can be easily resolved.
