If you have given up on Apple releasing a touchscreen MacBook and still really want a portable computer with touch, then you might want to consider the Acer V5 Angel touchscreen laptop that we will detail the full specs within this article. In our quick review, the aim is to see how good this laptop really is from user feedback and to consider this as an option for the perfect gift in 2014.
The exact Acer V5 Angel touchscreen laptop model we are referencing today is also known as the Acer Sleekbook V5-122P-0408 and it comes with a 11.6-inch touch display. This particular model also includes a 500GB hard drive as standard, 4GB of RAM memory, an AMD A4-1250 processor, and also runs on Windows 8 with touchscreen abilities.
Touchscreen the big difference – there’s no point purchasing a touchscreen laptop in our opinion if you aren’t going to use it, so if this is the type of portable computer you want then it can really open up a whole new world. The Acer V5 Angel full HD1 display has a 10-point touchscreen for easy fingertip control of this laptop.
The screen is crystal clear with a crisp display backed by the 512MB AMD Radeon HD 8210 graphics. You will also find Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater aiding built-in speakers for some really good sound, which can produce a great sound in music or with your other audio needs.
You can see the silver 11.6-inch Acer V5 Angel touchscreen laptop on Walmart, but there’s other options with different screen sizes and colors. This includes Champagne, red, and black color options along with a choice of 14-inch and 15.6-inch options on top of the above choice.
There’s some rated feedback on the official Acer website along with full configuration options. The overall ratings here claim an 8.2/10 review score, although Walmart has over 100 user reviews for this exact model that average a 2.9/5. Both results provide feedback about this laptop being above average, so considering the current $267.83 price it’s well worth considering. You should also note that we’ve heard rumors of the price hitting below the $200 mark over Thanksgiving and Black Friday sales, although it’s not clear if this will be at Walmart or another store like Target and Best Buy.
