    Possible Laptop Choice — Opinions Requested


    I am in the process of shopping for a new laptop, and I'm seriously considering the Acer Aspire V7-582PG-6479. I've listed here the specs most important to me:

    Windows 8.1 64-bit
    (No other software pre-installed!)
    Intel Core i5-4200U
    8 GB DDR3L memory
    16 GB SSD for quick boot; 500 GB hard drive (more than enough!)
    15.6" display; 1920 x 1080 resolution
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 750M with 4GB DDR3 VRAM
    3 USB ports (1-3.0; 2-2.0)
    card reader
    6.5 hr battery
    Weight 4.85# (I want portability, so weight and battery life are important.)
    Purchase price under $1000

    I'd really appreciate any feedback/comments about Acer in general and this rig in particular! Thank you.

    I currently own an Acer Ultrabook an I must say it's a good choice. They also offer great support over on there web forum.

    Three USB ports is a plus as well. Mine only has two, an a third would come in very handy.

    My only complaint would be the webcam. It's not even close to HD quality. However, everything else is a 10.

    Thanks for the reply! I'm happy for your good report, and, since, I have no interest in the webcam, the model looks like a good choice. Having a good support forum is definitely a plus.

    Thumbs up to Acer. I can support the choice of purchasing a product from them.

    I too can support an Acer purchase. I bought my self an Acer Aspire P3 for Christmas, and it has been wonderful. Not quite as "peppy" as yours, but it will do what I wanted it to do. Extremely mobile!

    I am really glad for the positive responses! I'll keep the thread open for a while yet, just in case there's some opposing viewpoints, but at this point I'm pretty well sold on this laptop. Thank you all!
