Acer Aspire V5 is recently released into the market
The Ultra-portable 11 inch Acer Aspire V5 is recently introduced to the market for only $550
Acer has recently released one new 11inch powerful budget laptop which is called the Acer Aspire V5-171-6867. This new device is ultraportable as well as can be included among the powerful devices available in the market.
By looking at the body of the notebook it resembles the small Netbooks but is equipped with much more powerful components. It is powered by an Intel Core i5 processor with a speed of 1.7GHz and has a 6GB of 1600MHz DDR3 RAM. It also has Intel HD 4000 for graphics support which allows it to provide a resolution of 1366 x 768 pixels on the 11.6inch screen. For storage it has a 500 GB HDD.
It is also provided with all other necessary specifications as a USB 3.0, 2 USB 2.0, VGA, HDMI, SD card reader Wi-Fi, Ethernet port, and Bluetooth. The device has a metallic gray plastic body which has dimensions measuring 11.2 x 8 x 1.1 inches. It weighs around 2.98 pounds which makes it quite comparable to the 13inch notebooks weights. This device is priced at $549 in the US. However till now this device has not showed up in the Acer India site.
This device seems to provide a battery backup of about 3 hours and 49 minutes while playing video while being review by cnet.com. Although in comparison to earlier laptops it is not bad but still as now we have the Ultrabooks it seems less. Some of the Ultrabooks are said to be providing a backup for about 7-8 hours.
Still we can say it to be a very powerful notebook which is an ultimate ultraportable except the weight factor and available only for about $500 can be said as a good buy. So, if you are in need of something powerful yet affordable and small this might be right choice for you.
