The slender, light and eminently portable Acer Aspire V5-171 11.6" Laptop is crammed with performance enhancing features to suit your mobile lifestyle and your budget.
Say hello to Windows 8
The Acer Aspire V5-171 is equipped with the latest Windows operating system iteration, Windows 8. This OS features a colourful and app style tiled interface allowing you to catch up with the latest updates from your contacts, the news, your social networking feeds and the weather, all of which update in real-time.
Cloud-connected, Windows 8 allows you to access all of your files and settings on other compatible devices once they have been saved in your cloud space and also means you will not miss a cumbersome optical drive.
A range of in-built apps will provide you with bounteous entertainment and communication options, such as the Xbox app. Working together seamlessly, additional downloadable apps from the Windows store will make using your new laptop a piece of cake.
As the Windows 8 operating system can run on low-powered processors, your device can work for longer on a single charge and makes using your laptop more energy efficient.
Popular processing power and storage
Built around a 3rd generation Intel® Core™ i3-3217U processor, the Acer Aspire V5-171 will provide amazing performance twinned with stunning visuals – great value for your everyday computing tasks.
A sizeable 500 GB hard drive provides plenty of storage space for all of your multimedia files. With capacity for up to 125,000 songs or 160,000 photos all of your treasured files will be safely housed in the Acer Aspire V5-171.
Shared graphics which won’t disappoint
