I purchased this laptop to replace my older Acer model, which is still running fine after 5 years but I wanted to upgrade. This computer is a fantastic choice for non-gamers like me! It has a slim, sleek design (though some might find its solid matte black finish "boring"), plus it has the speed and power that my older model was lacking... not to mention the beefy 500 gig hard drive! Also a plus is the 3.0 USB port, which will certainly come in handy for transferring video files to a flash drive. The standard "chicklet" keyboard is nicely laid out and is comfortable to use, although if you are using a chicklet style keyboard for the first time you may have problems striking all the keys evenly so that all your "hits" register on-screen. Just takes a little practice, that's all. I cannot comment on the performance of the touchpad, as I have always preferred to use a wireless mouse. The 16 x 9 screen is brilliantly clear and easy to read, and the speakers are surprisingly adequate for a laptop this thin (about an inch or so). I'm also pleased that this model contains an optical drive (for DVD's and CD's, but not blu-ray), which many newer computers seem to lack. My only quibble is the absence of a caps-lock indicator light, although when caps-lock is engaged there is a momentary on-screen icon to alert you. All in all, this is a GREAT value for anyone wishing to purchase a new full-featured laptop that still has the Windows 7 operating system. I am highly satisfied with this computer, and I'm sure the majority of average users will feel the same way.

Laptop met all my criteria, decent performance, light weight and good battery life all at a fair price!!!! Amazon had it on sale on daily deal and prime membership got it to me in 2 days. Can't beat it.

This is my second acer computer which both are very good laptops. The only thing is if they get hit in the slightest by the screen it smears the screen. Once it smears it's like a chain reaction all the way across till you can't see on it anymore. So treat these computers very very gently.

Bought this laptop after my elderly Aspire 5570Z limped to the end of it's career during my senior finals at university. I'm a loyal Acer customer. My first laptop ever was an Acer (the 5570Z) and by golly it still works so I keep it as my backup when things go wrong. I have to hook it up to an external monitor because the screen was so old the plastic on the back cracked and the connectors to the LCD came apart.

I went with the Acer Aspire V5-571-6647 for the larger display, bluetooth and the built in camera. Overall I was pretty satisfied with its performance. I use it to do mostly web surfing, and some minor picture editing here and there. It didn't blow my mind, but it got the job done. I purchased it back in August of 2012 and here we are exactly 2 years later and it blue screened this morning. Warranty is one year. From all accounts the video card is shot, which means the motherboard may need to be replaced---putting repair expenses well above what it would cost to bite the bullet and just get a new machine.

To clarify, I'm giving it three stars because having it blue screen 2 years into the process is very disappointing considering the amount I paid for it. Love Acer, but for the money I was expecting something that would at least make it to 3 years.

I bought this laptop from another retailer not even two years ago and the hard drive just suddenly died. Up until then, it was an OK laptop. I did not like that the mouse keys were blended into the touch pad. It was difficult to determine where your fingers were if you're not looking directly at them. The keyboard was also difficult to type on. Minor annoyances that I'd be more willing to overlook and give a better rating had it lasted longer.

For a newly purchased laptop I encountered too many problems. My computer won't start up properly of May not come on at all. Many times I had to reboot. Won't recommend this.

Excellent value for my son to use for school projects. Lightweight and thin, easy to carry. It's a little wider than some laptop bags.

I like the V5 series. It performs well and it is lite and thin. I have had one come in DOA, but things happen. Future service on a simple thing like a hard drive will be an issue as everything must come apart to get to it. I wish they had made it a bit more accessible.

Laptop is just ok. It is lightweight and thin. Performance is good. Keyboard is decent, the keys are spaced well and it is easy to touch type. Comes with the typical boatware. My biggest complaint is the trackpad. There are no seperate pushbuttons for left/right mouse click. You actually depress the whole pad in the lower left and right corners. Definitely feels cheap. For the price its an ok laptop.
