Comfort and portability

  • Windows 8 Live Tiles provide real-time updates from your Facebook, Twitter and email accounts

  • Integrate your online favourites, such as Facebook, Hotmail and Flickr, with content from your PC, such as photos and contacts.

  • Browse faster with Internet Explorer

  • Stay safer with Windows Defender

  • With thousands of apps to choose from, there's something for everyone. Once you buy an app from the Windows Store, it's yours to use on up to five Windows PCs or tablets.

  • Plus Mail, Photos, SkyDriver and more built-in

4.0 out of 5 stars A Very Good Deal! 4 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
Overall I'm very happy with this laptop. The Build quality is surprisingly good the unit feels very solid, the star performer on this Laptop is the Core i5 Ivy bridge CPU. The display uses a TN panel and I needed to sit dead center with the screen tilted backwards slightly to get the best visual results, colours and contrast deteriorate if tilted too far backwards or forwards. The 17" display panel has a glossy surface and much of the body and lid have a piano black finish so fingerprints are inevitable. The chiclet style keyboard and the track pad feel fine, you can also turn the track pad off if you prefer using a mouse. USB3 ports, Bluetooth, DVD drive, Webcam and Wireless all worked perfectly, I have not tested the card reader yet. I didn't like the on-board speakers, the audio sounded thin despite tweaking the Dolby EQ settings, audio vastly improved listening with a pair of Sony headphones. I've deducted one star for the audio which is probably a bit harsh given that external speakers or a set of headphones improve things no end. Battery life is OK when you consider the battery is driving a 17" display, I have mine running from the mains supply. Size & weight mean this is not a laptop you want to be carrying around for very long. An SSD would turn this thing into a real screamer, according to one forum there's a 2nd empty hard drive bay that can accommodate a 2nd hard drive but I've yet to open up the back to confirm this. I have absolutely no complaints regarding it's performance using the supplied Western Digital hard drive, this is a fast laptop. If you managed to buy one in the Amazon Boxing Day sale for 399 then you have yourselves a very good deal.
Highly Recommended!

I wiped the hard drive removing Windows 8 and the Acer software to install Windows 7 which I prefer.

5.0 out of 5 stars love the computer 10 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
i ordered this laptop from amazon and i haven't stopped using it yet, its very fast and has ample memory and ram but i still have trouble with windows 8 as its nothing like any previous version lol that's just me being dumb. My wife needed a new laptop and so did i so i ordered 2 and they arrived very very quickly within 2 days but that was because one of the days was Sunday so i guess it would have been quicker the only downfall i think is the camera could have been clearer but that's just my view, all in all excellent value especially for the price considering the specs of other computers in this price range.

i should also mention i have never had any problems with ACER'S unlike TOSHIBA and PACKARD BELL who both had major faults eg Toshiba hard drive died and the Packard bell battery died and my mates Packard bell hard drive failed too but the ACERS i bought five years ago are still working fine.

so good product good price good performance and all around spot on product

4.0 out of 5 stars Great laptop shame about windows 8 31 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase
Good laptop. Its fast, has a decent keyboard and the screen, although slightly low resolution, is bright and clear. Its a glossy screen which I don't mind although I know some people prefer matte. The downside is Windows 8 which is irritating in its approach and more bothersomely not everything is compatible with it e.g. at the moment I can't access my NAS unit from my shiny new laptop which makes it (laptop) practically redundant......

5.0 out of 5 stars Well made,good bargain 31 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase
This is a well made , bargain at 399.
Don't worry about Windows 8. It takes only 1-2 hrs to get used to the changes and its very user friendly.
Nice collection of helpful Apps.
In my view, there is not much on the market that's any better, unless you pay another 100-150 more.
Watch for price fluctuations.
This is my 2nd Acer product, and I feel they are good value.
As usual arrived promptly within 36 hrs, very well packed.
Feel I made a good choice.

Apart from the awful Windows 8, this is a good value machine. It works well, and really there are only two places where there are faults. First there needs to be a caps lock light. Second, the left hand shift key is awkward to use. Otherwise, for 400, a fine PC.

4.0 out of 5 stars Should have had a touch screen 6 Feb 2013
Verified Purchase
I am still getting to grips with this laptop. This is the first laptop I have owned and I am finding that I will be using the laptop and it changes screens and I don't know why. I think it is because I am used to a mouse and this touch pad is very sensitive also I think window 8 is designed for touch screens but still we will get there in the end.

1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible 29 Jan 2013
By Emma
I treated myself to this laptop with my Xmas money, after a couple of uses the laptop would switch off randomly and freeze. Then the screen would go static, like when your ariel isn't plugged into your tv. Then after that there's nothing you can do with it! So I contacted amazon and they sent me another one out. And the new laptop was worse, the same problems! But after the static, it wouldn't switch back on at all after that! Maybe it's just a bad batch of laptops....but I won't be purchasing another. Amazon have dealt with the problem promptly and professionally though.

3.0 out of 5 stars Could have been brilliant 21 Dec 2012
By Max
Verified Purchase
The Aspire V3-771 can only be descibed as chunky and heavy on appearence, though that it has to be expected to a certain extent with a 17" laptop. The laptop does do itself justice with a brilliant screen and decent sound though it has worst keyboard I have ever used on a laptop. The key spacing is ridiculous and the keys often feel "sticky" when pressed down.

I have had a number of annoyances with Windows 8 on the laptop, as it is completely useless for a laptop (it's designed for a touch screen tablet!). The first being the lack of a start button to access features such as "run" and the "control panel" is incredibly irritating, but I can't fault that it does have the latest windows software...

The addition of all the Acer features is also just a huge pain in the backside. You install all the features that it continually reminds you about, only to find they are absolutely rubbish and you should uninstall them immediately, which becomes even more difficult, as you cannot locate the control panel, as there is no start button.

The Acer's final fault is the intel core I5 processor. The processor itself is amazing, bordering genious, however, the processors power becomes redundant when you have an old cheap hard drive that ran at 5400rpm once upon a time. If you have ever owned a PC or laptop you know as they get older and slower they start to make more noise when they are "thinking". This isn't a coincidence. The hard drive becomes slow and noisy with age. The Acer Aspire will make that noise as you turn it on the first time and will continue to "think" everytime you access anything on the hard drive.
