5 out of 5 eggslightweight 7 durable (relatively) netbook

Pros: Better than my Dull [tm] laptop. Reinstalled an OEM Win7 to eliminate the bloatware and this has been a great portable device for college, light gaming (I can run Civ5 on low settings), VOIP, and the intrawebz. It has plenty of USB ports. Personally, I have had no problems with the touchpad/mousepad at all. It has continued functioning after two waist-height drops onto hard surfaces. After almost two years, I turned on the Bluetooth filesharing for use with my phone and it has worked extremely well for me.

Cons: 5400rpm/90Hz HDD is rather slow.

Other Thoughts: For the price I paid for it, this has been a fantastic investment.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent battery life, bad touchpad.

Pros: Small and portable. Boots quickly, battery lasts a long time.

Cons: Touchpad is just awful. Make sure you have a portable mouse with you, because some days I can't use the touchpad at all, even after rebooting. Some days it works ok, but is still pretty jittery and innacurate. Fn-F7 turns off the touchpad.

Other Thoughts: If it's steeply on sale it might be worth it, get yourself a mouse to go with it.

4 out of 5 eggsMisleading

Pros: Great performance for the price at the price I paid. Windows 7.

Cons: No touch screen.

Other Thoughts: At the time I ordered this ultra-portable laptop the Acer and this website both listed it as having a touch screen. This laptop does not come with a touch screen. Only the Windows 8 version of this laptop has a touch screen. Oddly the Windows 8 version and Windows 7 version of this laptop were within a few dollars of each other when I bought it. Being a tech an power user there is no way I could have got the Windows 8 version.

5 out of 5 eggsPlays Starcraft 2 even at 1080p

Pros: Comes with 1x4GB not 2x2GB which means you can just pop in a second 4GB stick and have 8GB of RAM. Plays Starcraft II on low settings even with a 1080p monitor plugged in. Ivy Bridge Graphics is legit!

Cons: Touchpad is not the greatest but this won't matter to people that use a mouse.

Other Thoughts: I was lucky to get this as an open box for a hundred cheaper. I can't complain!

Also, I reinstalled Windows immediately after getting this laptop. One trick I use on 5400rpm drives is formatting it with 64K clusters instead of the default 4K clusters since I never really use more than 150GB ever

Pros: Win 7

Price

Cons: No USB 3.0
Boatload
The charger does not seem very robust, but it works fine so far.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure what others have received, but the one I got works just fine.
Reading the reviews I was concern the touch pad was usable, but it's not that much different from others pads I use. It has double picked while playing a card game, but so does my big $$$ computer’s pad. It does come with some boatload, but they can easily be removed.
I considered adding 4 GB of RAM & changing the HD to a SSD, but the start-up time is rather quick and I do not plan to multi task with it so at this time I do not see needing to upgrade.
I would buy one of these again.

5 out of 5 eggsacer aspire v5-131-2629

Pros: I doubled the memory, and it moves right along. I like the size of computer.

Cons: No problems.

Other Thoughts: This computer is the second one of this model. I ended up returning the first one a second time is because the microphone failed to work when I tried to skype with the computer. This second return for an exchange was no problem. I wish I'd asked for an exchange the first time I returned the computer. This time I checked all functions. They all work. Thanks, New Egg.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat little laptop

Pros: - Works great for basic functions
- Good battery life (I get about 5 hours out of it)
- Small
- Lightweight

Cons: - Pre-loaded with tons of bloatware
- battery makes a little uncomfortable on lap

Other Thoughts: I bought this laptop specifically with school in mind. It actually came preloaded with tourchlight, plants vs zombies, and a bunch of other games, but I took them off. If your looking for something cheap with good battery life they your in the right place. I would warn anybody without decent computer knowledge against this purchase because of the overwhelming amount of bloatware that it comes preloaded with. It literally took me about 2 hours to un-install all off of it.
