Sleek and Very Responsive

Date:March 4, 2013
Product Highlights: lightweight, thin sleek design, usb 3.0 and hdmi, built-in optical drive, 10 point capacitive touch screen
This computer is a breeze to use right out of the box, thanks to the new Windows 8 setup and the easy to use touch screen.
It's also one of the thinnest laptops I've seen that still has a built in optical drive; for those who need to read CDs/DVDs on the go. While this unit does not have a built in ethernet or VGA output the included dongle alows you to connect said devices easily and without compromising the devices thickness.
The Acer V5 does have a built in HDMI port and a USB 3.0 port, making connecting it to a HDTV or external hard drive incredibly simple.
Obviously the most interesting feature is the 10 point touch screen, meaning it can detect all 10 of your fingers simletaniously. This feature is very good for browsing the web, manipulating images, draging and dropping, and other actions that are too cumbersome for the trac pad. The screen is also very vibrant and responds smoothly to gestures. I have also found that Windows 8 provides a more user friendly experience when used on a touch device.
Along with the touch screen the Acer V5 also has a a very appealing keyboard complete with a numeric keypad.
To top the whole package off this laptop is also very asthetically pleasing and light enough for hours of comfortable use no matter where you are.

Good for Most Users

Date:May 10, 2013
Product Highlights: Size & Weight, Battery Life, Value for Money
With mostly internet based, word processing, and technical computations, this laptop works well and should be suitable for most average users who primary use internet only. Has the standard battery life expected, the touch is a luxury feature which works well.
