  • The Acer Aspire V5-571-6869 is a bare-bones budget laptop that still manages to provide solid performance and acceptable battery life.


  • The Acer Aspire V5-531 is an attractive offer. At a sub-400 Euro ($485 USD) price, the customer gets a weak, quiet, low consumption notebook which can handle routine applications despite its weaker equipment. Moreover, the device almost has an air of elegance due to its thin case. This impression is somewhat downgraded by the plastic case's cheap impression.

    For those seeking a basic notebook for Web browsing, online chatting and Skype, and watching DVDs without spending a lot, the Aspire V5-531 is a good choice.


  • The Aspire V5-571 offers speedy Core i5 performance for a cheap price, but the design isn't very exciting.


  • The Toshiba Portege R835-P88 shows that an ultraportable can still kick ultrabook butt.


  • The Porteage R830 was launched essentially right before the dawn of ultrabooks in mid- to late 2011. The notebook was at the time a light subnotebook with support for standard-voltage Sandy Bridge CPUs for generally faster performance. By today's standards, however, many of its advantages have now been eclipsed by even first generation ultrabooks in terms of battery life, weight, and overall system performance due to SSDs or hybrid HDD/SSD solutions in the Intel ultrathins.


  • The Toshiba Portege R835-P88 is a lightweight business ultraportable with a sturdy frame and long battery life.


  • The first impression of the Alienware M17x sustained even after a longer working with the device. Alienware, or correctly Dell, has done a good job with the case and in our opinion could even surpass proclamations such as: "level of the Precision range". The aluminum case tray provides for a first-class haptical impression, gives the laptop a remarkable stability and provides above that for a well-made, distinctive design.

    - The entire base of the notebook is inflexible.
    - The m17x’s cooling system is well-designed; each video card has its own heatsink and fan.
    - Key travel is normal for a notebook, and the sound is quiet and rubber-like.
    - The nylon material is thick, durable, and well-made, and the notebook compartment is well cushioned.
    - The keyboard has a soft feel and keypresses are well cushioned.
    - The power draw of this system is immense.


  • - The BBC’s series on Blu-ray Disc looked awesome on the big screen, as well, and showed no signs of smearing or motion artifacts.


  • - Compared to other consumer level notebooks on the market, it is midpriced at around $1,370.
    - The 17.3 inch widescreen has a native resolution of 1600 x 900, which is better than most laptops.


  • - Colors are bold and video plays smoothly, and the panel's wide viewing angle performance means you can watch videos with friends without experiencing color shifting or a darkened screen.
    - The embedded Altec Lansing speakers deliver good mid and high tones and are reasonably loud but not very deep when it comes to bass response.


  • - The touchpad is slick and easy to use with great responsiveness, and likewise, the keyboard (which includes a number pad) has excellent spacing and travel characteristics.
    - Things were much happier on the 3DMark front, where the DV7 romped in with a 3DMark score of 4,583, meaning that this is a very solid multimedia contender.

    - One part of the notebook that could be more solid is the display.
    - The hinges should be stiffer because the display wobbles too much for my liking.
    - The amount of screen real estate that this resolution offers is amazing and can greatly help productivity.
