The Acer Aspire V5 was released around November last year, similar to the other Aspire S7 that was reviewed. However, the Acer Aspire V5, unlike the premium S7, is a mainstream laptop, albeit one armed with the Windows 8 Operating System, and comes with a touchscreen, as a optional means of navigating across the Windows 8 touch-friendly interface.
Specifications of the Aspire V5 include a 3rd generation dual-core Core i5 Intel processor clocked at 1.7GHz, which is good enough for multimedia, some Office work and even some low-end basic gaming, though the integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics processing unit means that it cannot be pushed too far past the limit. RAM memory is 4GB as standard, which is not bad for budget laptops with the V5′s price range, but would be more than enough for average consumers. Also included is a standard 500GB hard disk, which is not a SSD, unlike many Ultrabooks nowadays, it can contain more data with its greater capacity and due to it being a standard HDD, a lower purchase price.
Overall, the Acer Aspire V5 is a competent budget laptop that offers quite a lot of value and will be able to perform multitasking and normal tasks quite well, and thus is recommended for budget and average consumers.
