Powerful, portable and featuring all you need for serious mobile computing, the Acer V5-561G 15.6” Laptop is the ideal PC for any on-the-go user.
Windows 8.1 takes the established Windows formula and adds a number of exciting improvements to help you make the most of modern computing.
While the familiar start button and traditional desktop remain, the Start Screen now features live tiles. These handy squares show live updates, messages and notifications for all your most used content, including social media, emails, news and more.
There are plenty more functional updates throughout Windows 8.1, including adjustable four-way multitasking and a completely reworked search bar; simply start typing to search your computer, connected storage media, the Cloud and web.
Whatever you do while you’re out and about, you can expect responsive computing courtesy of an Intel® Core™ i7-4500U processor. With an impressive 3 GHz TurboBoost clock speed and four-way multithreading, it provides ample performance for everything from everyday browsing to photo-editing.
Multitasking and demanding tasks are aided by 8 GB of RAM which allows seamless computing regardless of how many instances of software you have open. Should you need more for seriously large projects or intense rendering, you can add up to 16 GB for truly high-performance computing.
An AMD Radeon R7 M265 graphics card provides impressive graphics for enjoying films and games as they should be, along with easing the strain on the processor, for an undiluted performance on the go.
When you’re home, you can experience downloaded and online media on the big screen in HD by simply connecting an HDMI cable between the laptop and any modern TV – perfect for making the most of catch-up TV and movie streaming services.
The Acer V5 is the ideal tool for long work days thanks to the comfortable FineTip keyboard that features individual keys for accurate typing.
Moving around is easier than ever thanks to the trackpad that supports Windows 8 multi-finger gestures, including a three-finger swipe to move between programs and easy page zooming via a simple pinch motion.
Getting online and connecting to other devices wirelessly is quick and simple with integrated WiFi and Bluetooth, while a USB 3.0 port makes backing up even the largest of files to external storage a cinch.
An SD card reader and DVD drive completes the spec and ensures a complete computing experience wherever you find yourself.
