-First i deleted the bloatware programs(about 10-15 programs) as well as removing a list of the windows 8 acer apps that were preloaded.
-Then i opened the Acer update suit and updated the wifi driver (fixes performance issues with the laptop and ensure optimal wifi performance)
-After that i did a windows update and restarted the computer after that was done
-Then i went to Nvidia's website and downloaded and installed the latest gpu drivers, in this case the Nvidia GT 630M drivers.
-After doing all that i decided to defrag the hard drive using defraggler which defragged 4.5GB of data
-Then after all this i went to disabling all start up programs (this stops 3rd party programs running in the background and speeds up boot time) using windows 8 task manager.
-Then after doing all this i updated the bios by running an exe program that i downloaded from the Acer website
After about 6 reboots or so my laptop is blazingly fast. Even with an i3 at just 2.4Ghz it speeds through tasks and its boot time is 10 seconds or so.
Now the Aspire V3 comes with an Intel HD 4000 GPU (used when in HDMI mode, and basic graphic tasks such as HD youtube) and then it has the Nvidia GT 630M which is an absolute BEAST! I play games such as minecraft and Leauge Of Legends and i am able to max out both games with full graphics with no lag.Read more ›
this laptop deserves every penny i paid for it! it plays all of my modern games in high or ultra graphics (battlefield 3, medal of honor, need for speed, burnout, fallout new vegus,) the list goes on and on, and getting about 30-60 fps, im never expect massive fps in games on laptops and 30-60 is more then smooth enough to play all games without having any issues (the only thing you cant pump up is anti aliesing and antistophic filter, also i would suggest turning the shaddow quality down to medium just to get the best in game expericiences.
my friend bought the AMD A8 version of this laptop and has no end of problems with it in game and generally, i however have had no faults what so ever UNTIL a few weeks ago when i had a major virus infect my computer, (ZoneAlarm didnt stop it, however i dont think zonealarm stopped much at all to be honest) i have now managed to use multiple boot time scanners and many many days of worry and finally i think every virus and backdoor tojan and all other nasties have been removed, however windows update still wont work anymore :-/
however this has NOTHING to do with this laptop and how great it is, just always remember to have a very good anti virus program installed at all times, if you find a product you trust and like, stick with it!
general battery life if left in high perforamce mode is around 2.3 hours, in power saver about 3.2 hours.Read more ›
Build quality is very solid, lovely well laid out keyboard, bright crisp screen, and the guts to run your programs without any hastle. Also the audio quality is surprisingly good for a laptop. Has an intel integrated GPU for the less strenuous tasks to save on battery power (awesome!), and temperature undewr load is minimally noticable.
two nigling things.
1/ The mousepad is a bit "special", the sensitivity of it (even though it can be changed) is kinda weird. It keeps thinking i'm clicking on things even though i've fiddled around with the sensitivity
2/ even though it's a very pretty bezel and cover, it's a fingerprint magnet.
two pretty minor things though. absolute cracker of a laptop otherwise! very very very good processor.
