Acer Has Good Portable PC Reviews

Medium processor core notebook PCs built by Acer have good ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all notebook PCs (not just medium processor core notebook PCs) and found that Acer also has good ratings across its entire range.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 2.4 gigahertz, the Aspire V3 has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst laptops of this age. Portable PCs that have been available for more than a year have processor clock speeds of between 0.8GHz and 3.3GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 2.2GHz.

If this portable PC processor clock speed is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the DELL Latitude 14 E7450[plb_2882103_price] (2.6GHz), or the MSI CX61[plb_2900145_price] (2.6GHz) which is also cheaper.

There are a number of alternative 1TB total storage capacity laptops currently available that you might also want to look at including cheaper portable PCs such as the HP Pavilion 17[plb_2725280_price], or the DELL Inspiron 17 5000[plb_2701798_price].

The memory clock speeds supported by processor of all laptops of this type and age ranges from 133MHz to 1,866MHz.

Chart Edit

We compared this portable PC to all the other laptops with a full-size keyboard and we think the DELL Latitude 14 E5450[plb_2949230_price] is also worth considering.

Has a Front Camera

Like most of the other portable PCs of this age and type, the Acer Aspire V3 has a front camera.

There are a number of other notebook PCs which also have a front camera which you might want to consider including the HP ProBook 650[plb_2877744_price], the DELL Latitude 14 E5450[plb_2949230_price], or the Asus UX301LA[plb_2960844_price].

Unlike most of the other notebook PCs of a similar age and spec to the Aspire V3 which do not have a touch sensitive screen, the Acer Aspire V3 has a touch sensitive screen.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative laptops with a touch sensitive screen currently available including the DELL Latitude 14 3000[plb_2804877_price], or the HP ProBook 450[plb_2784001_price] which is cheaper.
