With a screen size of 15.6 inches, the Aspire V3 has a pretty typical screen size compared to most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and type to the Aspire V3.

We compared this portable PC to all the other 15.6" laptops and we think the X550CA[pl_2093524_price], and the X502CA[pl_1631840_price] both from Asus or the HP ProBook 650 G1[plb_2059670_price] which is cheaper is also worth considering.

If this portable PC screen size is not big enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Pavilion 17[plb_2515489_price] (17.3"), or the DELL Inspiron 17 5748[plb_2549655_price] (17.3").
