The new Acer Aspire V3-571G is a laptop clearly oriented towards multimedia use , especially movie viewing and gaming. Thanks to its 15.6 ″ screen and the combination of its third-generation Intel Core i5 3210M processor and the graphics card with 2 GB of dedicated memory, we will be able to run most games with good fluidity. Despite not being a team with much autonomy, this Acer laptop will be able to work up to four and a half hours away from the electrical current.
The computer comes with 64-bit Windows 7 Home Premium and a sizeable 750GB storage . But without a doubt one of the most attractive points of the Acer Aspire V3-751G is its price, quite competitive, of 650 euros . We tell you all the details of this team in this article in depth.
Design and display
The new Acer laptop has a design that follows the classic lines of the Acer Aspire dedicated to multimedia use. Without being a groundbreaking design, we have a keyboard with the keys with enough separation between them and a large touchpad to navigate more easily through the screen. The dimensions of the equipment are 38.2 x 25.3 x 3.3 centimeters. Without a doubt, we are not facing one of the finest equipment on the market, but this laptop flees from the increasingly marked trend of making fine equipment to offer a laptop with a competitive price but at the same time powerful. The weight of the Acer Aspire V3-571G is 2.6 kilos, which could become annoying if you want to use it outside the home environment.
As for the screen, it integrates an HD LED BackLight CineCrystal panel with a size of 15.6 ″ and a resolution of 1,366 x 768 pixels. As it is a bright type screen, vision may be somewhat uncomfortable if we have reflections from sunlight or other sources of artificial light. In addition, at this point you would need a higher resolution to be able to enjoy games and movies with higher quality.
Processor and memory
Acer's new notebook will feature a third-generation Intel Core processor . This new batch of chips has the main advantage of being more energy efficient, on average 20%. The model chosen for this team from the Taiwanese company is the Intel Core i5 3210M, a dual-core processor with a power of 2.5 GHz per core. As usual in the Intel Core i5 and i7 families, we can improve the processing speed up to 3.1 GHz thanks to Turbo Boost 2.0 technology. In addition, through Hyper-Threading technology we can work as if we actually had four cores instead of two.
It is a fairly powerful processor that, however, will not correspond to a RAM memory at the same height, since we will stay in the standard 4 GB . Of course, if you need a greater capacity of RAM, we can expand it up to 8 GB.
On the other hand, if we focus on storage, Acer has opted for a 750 GB hard drive on this computer , an option that will allow us to store a large number of movies, music and games. Acer's decision not to opt for an SSD card or for a hybrid storage system is one of the reasons why this laptop has been able to maintain a fairly cheap price range ( 650 euros in the company's official store) .
Graphics and connectivity
Besides the processor of the computer, the other strong point of the Acer Aspire V3-751G is in its dedicated graphics card. It is an NVIDIA Geforce GT 630M card, a graphics card with 2 GB of dedicated memory and that has 384 CUDA cores . These very low-power cores serve to break down complex graphics into many simpler processes and thus improve the speed with which many processes are performed above what we can achieve with a powerful CPU.
The set of peripherals of the Acer Aspire V3-751G includes a DVD recorder reader and a webcam with a resolution of 1.3 megapixels with which we can carry out video conferences. Regarding connectivity, the presence of a USB 3.0 port stands out above all, with which we will achieve transfer speeds ten times higher than with USB 2.0. We will also have an HDMI port to view high-quality computer content on a television, 2 USB 2.0 ports and an Ethernet port , as well as a VGA output to connect to an external monitor.
Wireless connections include WiFi connection and Bluetooth 4.0 (the latest generation of this connection).
System and applications
The system chosen by Acer for this computer is Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit . As is usual in Acer equipment , we will have a series of pre-installed tools for managing the different characteristics of the equipment, such as an energy manager. We will also have a large number of games (it can be a bit tedious having to uninstall them one by one) and a trial version of an antivirus for 30 days.
Autonomy and prices
One of the points in which the laptop stands out the least is its autonomy, despite maintaining a moderate figure of four and a half hours of use according to Acer (more or less intensive use can reduce this figure to close to three hours). Be that as it may, this is a laptop whose main objective is to serve as a multimedia device in the home , so it is normal that the accent has not been placed on its mobility.
The Acer Aspire V3-571G is a recommended laptop for those users who want to use it to play games, since the mixture of a fairly powerful processor and a dedicated graphics card with a good response allows most of the games on the market to run quite smoothly . However, the laptop will lose part of its appeal if we want to use it on the go, since it is quite heavy and its autonomy will not allow great joys. The Acer Aspire V3-571G is now available in the Spanish market at a price of 650 euros in the official Acer store .
