Acer Aspire V5 – Pros And Cons


– Acer Aspire v5-123 is touch screen laptop with a decent design, all for a very reasonable price.

– Like the Hp 250  G2, it also has an extra slim body even with a lighter weight.


– For those that fancy bigger screen size, the laptop might not seems interesting  because it has a 11.6″ screen size. This is the main reason i dumped Acer Aspire v5 for Hp 250 G2 simply because i prefer a bigger size laptop!

– The power button position is somehow awkward but that’s no big deal.
