If your seeking a windows 8 laptop for the lowest price for the best specs, this is a good choice. It features a 2.5GHz Intel Core i5, 6GB of ram, and a Geforce GT 640M graphics card. If you plan on using it for everyday tasks like browsing, email, and applications — you will be pleased. The only thing that could make this laptop noticeably faster is if it ran Windows 8 on an SSD drive. However, this would drive up the cost quite a bit and Acer left room for an SSD drive to be added separately.
Windows 8 works great with the mult-gesture keypad. The only thing that could make it better for Windows 8 is if it was a touch screen laptop. However, this would also add to the cost.
If you are a gamer, the graphics card is good enough to meet the minimum requirements for all new games and it even runs games such as Borderlands 2, Counterstrike GO, and Fifa 13 perfectly on high settings. Battlefield 3 is also playable at medium settings which is awesome for a laptop at this price. It also includes a 750GB hard drive so that gives plenty of space for games and media.
The 17.3″ screen looks amazing. You can tell that Acer tried to bring portability to a 17.3″ laptop because of its thin design. It feels pretty light considering it’s large screen at 7lbs. Many laptops this size are not optimized for portability since they take up more space and weight over 8lbs. So if you plan on traveling a lot with this laptop, I don’t think it will be a problem.
Other features such as 4 USB ports (2 USB 3.0) and an HDMI port make it all the more flexible.You can mirror the laptop screen by connecting the laptop to the TV via the HDMI out port.
Overall, the Acer Aspire V3-771G-6851 is an amazing Windows 8 laptop. The performance/price ratio is excellent and I definitely recommend it!
