Acer Aspire V3-551-8469 Review
Another launch from the Aspire series from Acer is the new Acer Aspire V3-551-8469 which is a cool looking, light weight and a worthy laptop that proves to be good enough to satisfy the needs of different people. The look of this new laptop also is impressive and is slim at its sides making it more stylish adding to its inner beauty.
The Acer Aspire V3-551-8469 is pretty much full of features and comes at a reasonable price range. The screen at 15.6 inches is very neat and is suitable for viewing movies and sporting events (Dolby audio has surely done justice to their name); having said that the screen has a proper finish and doesn’t give the viewers any glaring problems. Being backlit by LED the screen saves considerable amount of energy helping to increase the life of the battery.
The device is powered by an AMD quad core A8 processor that clocks up to 1.9 GHz and this makes sure that the operation of Windows 8 carries on without any problem. The processor is well supported by the 4 GB RAM that can help in running major applications without even minor issues. There is a 500 GB SATA hard drive for storage purposes.
There is an optical drive which functions as promised and the presence of 3 USB ports (1 USB 3.0) can improve the speed of transfer by a good amount. There is also an HDMI port that can be used to connect your other high end devices. The battery is a usual 6 cell lithium ion battery and it easily manages to last up to a little more than 4.5 hours.
Though it might look complete, there are a few areas where they can improve upon. The 500 GB hard disk can be okay for a normal user but hardcore users will not be happy with it. Also the absence of a SSD might reduce the efficiency of the device. The presence of 1 USB 3.0 port is nice but more of it could be better. Also the graphics card isn’t outstanding at just 512 MB. Serious gamers will be disappointed.
The above problems will be a serious issue to all those who use their laptop for almost half the day. But if you are in need of a laptop that you will use for the day to day activities and for simple gaming then this Acer Aspire V3-551-8469 will make a lot more sense to you.
