4.0 out of 5 stars Like a ultrabook with a doublelayer DVD drive on board.
Sleek and relativly light for a notebook. Uses a 4 cell battery where most laptops use 6 cell batteries. Has a dual layer DVD burner. Built-in monitor provides sharp images. Computer case has a bit more flex that will only increase with age and use.
One major complaint is that te hard drive is a 500gb 5400 single disk where as the product description at Amazon.com...

If you need to replace anything on this you are screwed. One of the kids spilled a drink near the computer and some got in the keyboard making some keys sticky. I removed the keyboard hoping to easily replace it as is possible with any other laptop I've encountered. Guess again...you can buy a new keyboard for a king's ransom but not the frame around it. I also discovered...

This review is from: Acer Aspire V5-571-6681 15.6-Inch HD Display Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)

One major complaint is that te hard drive is a 500gb 5400 single disk where as the product description at Amazon.com indicates the HDD was a hybrid drive. The hybrid drive is the reason I purchased this particular laptop.

If you need to replace anything on this you are screwed. One of the kids spilled a drink near the computer and some got in the keyboard making some keys sticky. I removed the keyboard hoping to easily replace it as is possible with any other laptop I've encountered. Guess again...you can buy a new keyboard for a king's ransom but not the frame around it. I also discovered the plastic clip holding the keyboard in place, which had a minor crack and completely broke upon removal, is also not purchasable and considered part of the motherboard. But to be 'fair', Acer will repair all of this for $199 plus shipping! Admittedly the spill was our fault, but what is normally a simple swap of a part costs half the price of the whole thing?? No more Acer's, ever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good, Basic Machine, December 30, 2012

This review is from: Acer Aspire V5-571-6681 15.6-Inch HD Display Laptop (Black) (Personal Computers)
Bought this laptop for internet surfing and simple writing. Works great for both of those reasons. Lightweight, sturdy, CD/DVD drive is awesome on such a small laptop and a perfectly sized screen. One problem; and it is a problem. The touch pad buttons are sticky. Like I click in and it refuses to click out. Easily fixed with a wireless mouse attachment that a friend gave me. Aside from that, great laptop.

What can I say, its a great laptop for my mother in law who wants yo learn the basics about a computer. No lagging, no error screen and not much bloatware. Can't complain, I'm satisfied.

This is the 4th or 5th one I have bought, perhaps more. I've had 1 DOA (Hey it happens). But the performance of the others has been all you could ask for at this price point.
