Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Acer Aspire V5-471 14-inch Laptop (Silver) - (Intel Core i3 2365 1.4GHz Processor, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, DVDSM DL, LAN, WLAN, BT, Webcam, Integrated Graphics, Windows 8) (Personal Computers)
As a relatively cheap laptop, ones expectations tend to be dampened somewhat. It is then a very pleasant surprise to discover that the 14" V5 is a cracking little machine. It's thin and light, without being a true ultrabook, battery life is a very short three or four hours but even the powerbrick is small and easy to carry. The screen is clearly a cheap part, with very, very, narrow viewing angles but when sat with it in your lap, what you see is clear, bright and with excellent colour balance.
Windows 8 works very nicely, the keyboard is usefully backlit and sound is superb. The industrial design is very nice: of course it's using plastics rather than metal but those plastics are tastefully applied and the unit is finished well.
Bought for my daughter to finish her final year of university and replacing a significantly more expensive HP that had given up the ghost: both she and I are well pleased. Money well-spent.
