26 September 2014

Acer set out to split the difference between a 14-inch gaming machine with a portable Ultrabook machine, and it's struck a good balance with the Aspire V7. It's one of the slimmest 14-inch laptops...

Seamless design
Gorgeous screen
Thin and light
A fast CPU for the price
Decent overall specs
Rough trackpad
Loaded with bloatware
Short battery life
Lowresolution display
Lacklustre GPU
