This review is from: Acer Laptop Aspire V5-171-6614 Intel Core i3 3217U (1.80GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 11.6" Windows 8
Pros: Laptop feels solid and well made. 11.6 inch makes it travel friendly and light.
i3 processor is more than sufficient. I notice the same specs available in an i5 version for 160 dollars more. Personal preference I guess.
I 'm a light user mostly, so the added processor power wasn't necessary.
Ram, Hard Drive, and graphics (HD 4000) are plenty.
Keyboard - Like the chicklet setup. Keys will stick and click occasionally.
Screen - I find the display more than adequate.
Battery Life - Huge plus. Never measured total but I'd surmise the 4-5 hour claim is accurate.
Webcam - Good enough - Haven't used but in a test.
Bluetooth - Works as promised.
Cons: BIG CON - Speakers. TINY TINY TINY. You'll need to use headphones in most cases. I don't believe the i5 model to be different than the i3. 11.6 Inch makes good speakers difficult.
Trackpad - gets in the way occasionally as consumes large surface area.
Windows 8. HORRIBLE and arduous operating system. Classic shell and some other modifications make tolerable. Microsoft has butchered Windows.
Other Thoughts: Worth the purchase price.
