Acer have to be one of the most prolific producers of laptops around at the moment, they just do not seem to let up with one machine following another out of the Acer factory. This is the new Aspire it is called the V5 V5-171-H32D / S and offers a neat 11.6 inch little display with Intel Core processing power and Intel Graphics too. However, this is not meant to be a gaming machine, it is a budget model, even though it starts at over $600! For a budget laptop, it would seem that the manufacturer has carved out a new meaning for the term budget, as we will see by going over the specs and features of the V5.
