If you are taking up a course on video editing or just a game freak then Acer has got a tempting offer for you. Acer’s Aspire
V5-571PG-9814 comes with a powerful multimedia performance into a portable design. Boasting a powerful Core i7 CPU and a Nvidia GeForce GT 710M GPU, this $999 15-inch notebook has enough power to play the latest games and perform video editing.
Just like the Acer Aspire V7 this laptop is cute. The Aspire V5-571PG’s Silky Silver finish is lovely to look at, but I wish the lid was made from aluminum instead of plastic. Acer managed to soften the lid’s boxy shape by gently rounding the sides. A lone Acer logo sits in the center, adding a nice touch of bling and class to this laptop.
Interestingly, Acer managed to get everything properly arranged. The right side of the Aspire V5-571PG houses a DVD drive and a Kensington lock slot. A 2- in-1 card reader sits along the notebook’s front left lip. A trio of USB ports (1 USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0) line the left side with a HDMI port, LAN/VGA combo
port and jacks for a headset and the power adapter.
The Acer Aspire V5 I have here is powered by a 2.0-GHz Intel
Core i7-3537U CPU with 8GB of RAM, the Acer Aspire V5-571PG-9814 delivers solid performance but trails some of
its closest competitors. The notebook easily streamed videos on Netflix with 9 open tabs in Google Chrome, Internet Explorer and Mozilla Firefox while running a full system scan.
In terms of display the Aspire V5’s 15.6-inch 1366 x 768 display delivers rich, vivid color, it’s lacking in sharpness compared to
notebooks with higher resolution 1600 x 900 and full HD displays. This doesn’t mean I wasn’t able to play HD games though!
