Acer Laptop Aspire V5-571P-6831 Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3337U (1.80 GHz) 6 GB Memory 750 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6

  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Touch screen

Track pad
The magical disappearing mouse pointer!

Other Thoughts: I hate this computer with the passion of a thousand suns.

The wifi is unreliable, it overheats due to bad fan placement, HDD skips like a stone, spacebar works when it feels like it
and the best part
driver updates don't fix anything. (Like being forced to sleep or restart your PC when your mouse decides to DISAPPEAR like magic and not return unless you do the above method)

Now running windows 8.1 and I'd rather have put my hand in a blender, now the wifi will just kick you off for no reason when it works on every other PC in the house. (It appears restarting several times fixes that temporarily...if you call that a fix)

I'm beyond frustrated and irritated, I'm mad. For how much this costs I'm shocked at how it DOESNT run. Outa the box it wasn't too bad, ran well for about 3 months then all this started. Yes, I contacted Acer, they are useless and don't even know what to do. (This is evident in their forums alone)

I think I found a good use for this computer...a Frisbee!

Pros: It is nice looking card and doesn't need additional power. It has some power behind it, and will be great once i get this DUAL GRAPHICS working

Cons: I haven't been able to make this bloody DUAL GRAPHICS to work for anything. I have done a fresh install and updated windows completely, then I installed all the drivers for my mobo (ASUS as well) A88XM-A. I changed the Setting in the MOBO for Dual monitors (IGFX Multi-Monitor) and have it all set to auto and tried force as well. STILL NOTHING. If i plug in mobo disables my PCI Card and then i plug in PCI and disables my GPU on the CPU. CPU (A10-7850k). I

Other Thoughts: MOBO - A88XM-A (bios 1801)
CPU - A10-7850k
RAM - F3-2400C10D-8GTX
and this CARD.

Acer Laptop Aspire V5-571P-6831 Intel Core i5 3rd Gen 3337U (1.80 GHz) 6 GB Memory 750 GB HDD Intel HD Graphics 4000 15.6

Pros: Durable, big mouse pad, backlight keyboard, it is a touchscreen, and the display is amazing.

Would Rank it 4.5 because of Wifi

Cons: Wifi drivers have to be updated (After that it works like a charm.)

Other Thoughts: Wish it had a little pen, but that's just nit picking.
