Acer Aspire V5 Series -- Slender and Light, with Great Performance
As thin as it is light, the V5 still packs potent power and graphics. Some models even feature an optical drive and handy LAN/VGA combo port, while they all promise cool-to-the-touch comfort. The elegant design sports silky surfaces in a selection of charming colours and go-anywhere sizes.
Thin, Light and Cool
30% Slimmer and 10% Lighter
Less than 23 mm thin, and less than 2.3kg light, the ultra-thin design of the Aspire V5 packs in powerful performance and fast connectivity in a chassis that's easy to transport, easy to store, and most of all easy to use.
HDD and Optical Disc Drive
Despite the ultra-thin profile of the Aspire V5, you'll find it includes a large volume hard drive and an 8X DVD-Super Multi DL drive.
Cool and Comfortable
The new airflow design channels air from the keyboard and palmrest to keep the notebook constantly cool, and directs warm air toward the rear, away from you. Smart component placement and mechanical design concentrate vital components in key places to maximise the efficiency of the notebook's thermal system, keeping you and PC cool at all times.
Modern Track Pad with Advanced Image Sensor
Optimised for the Windows 8 user interface, the Aspire V5 features some of the most modern track pad technology available. Up to 30% larger than other track pads in the same class, you'll find the integrated image sensor technology give you better sensitivity and palm rejection, and allows you to perform a variety of multi-gesture commands.
Intuitive Touch Experience*
Available on the V5-571P and V5-571PG models only, a responsive touchscreen will allow you to control your browsing and apps without the use of a mouse, keyboard or trackpad. Switch between applications with quick, fingertip control.
Fast Processing with Intel Core Processors
The Aspire V5 laptops feature a choice of processors to suit your power needs. Choose from one of the Intel Core i3 and i5 options, delivering intelligent performance that adapts to your individual needs. With Intel Turbo Boost Technology, Quick Sync Video and Clear Video HD Technology, the latest generation Intel Core processors deliver great media processing for faster video editing and sharing, enthusiast class HD video playback, accelerated web browsing, and great mainstream and casual gaming experience.
LAN/VGA Combo Port*
Helping to keep the Aspire V5 as compact and light as possible, the LAN/VGA combo port makes it easy to get online and plug in an external display, from one place. Using the included adapter, you'll be able to plug in an Ethernet cable to connect to local networks and the Internet reliably and securely. The VGA connector allows you to connect the V5 to larger screens, such as a desktop monitor, projector, or TV..
Dolby Advanced Audio v2
Even the best graphics can lack a certain something if your sound quality is poor. That's why the Aspire V5 includes Dolby Advanced Audio v2. For a full theatre experience, Dolby Advanced Audio v2 provides vibrant, engaging sound over any pair of speakers or headphones - making movies, music and games more realistic.

Performs very well in general, but loses internet connection several times per day.
I've performed a troubleshoot many times now, always reporting the same fault (network adaptor not sent to automatically connect).
Thing is, I quite specifically set it to automatically connect to my BT Broadband.
I'm running 2 other PCs in the house, with no connection problem at all.
I'm still looking at the PC settings, and would be happy to upgrade my overall rating if I can sort this out...
UPDATE 04 JUNE 13: Downloaded Atheros network adaptor driver version 10.0.0.225 from the website below and it seems to have worked. I had to download it to a directory of its own, and extract it from the zipped format. Inside the extracted file there was a "setup" instruction. I just double-clicked that, and it loaded the new driver into my PC. The PC then had to be re-booted to activate the change. I've now upgraded my rating to 4 stars :-)
The reason for only three stars is bad experience with the Internet connection which persistently cut out, despite other machines working ok on the same link. Now waiting replacement from Amazon.
Big plus point for Amazon- I ordered laptop on next day delivery and they are providing the same service for the replacement.
UPDATE Second one worked great for 4 days then died! Returned for refund. Never again will I choose an acer.
We got it yesterday and it looks great, very nice design and despite windows 8 everything was fine. After 30 mins the Wifi dropped but not to fear because we just changed the power saving settings and it was all fine. Now today we have wifi problems again! We're trying to download a new driver from acer, it is painfully slow. I don't mean just a little laggy or slow. I mean it's telling me a 216mb file is going to take 1hr 20 mins. and the ironic part is that it didn't even start downloading yet....still 0%. at the same time the ACER live updater is downloading about 1% every 10 minutes....this is utter junk!
ACER, the first computer I bought from you broke after just 1 year. My GF loves your computers so she decided we get this one. If you're reading this, remember your reputation is more important than any advertising. You've disappointed me greatly and if this computer doesn't start working soon, it's going back to amazon...and what's more, I'll NEVER buy your stuff again. Sort your act out acer.
Well, after switching some of the power saving options and downloading a new wifi driver we have had no problems. I'm not sure who is to blame to be honest, I'm beginning to think that windows 8 itself may have caused these problems. ACERs incredibly slow website meant we had to download the drivers on a different computer but as I say, things are fine now so I've changed my rating.
Having said all that, I bought this for my girlfriend who seems to quite like it so maybe I am just getting old.
Besides the stupid operating system, the machine seems ok.
