Quick Overview

Although it looks like a netbook, this little laptop has a great screen and enough processor power for most applications


The Acer Aspire V5-131 ultraportable laptop looks like an old-fashioned netbook, but it has a quad-core AMD A4-1250 processor and build quality that's a cut above your average cheap small laptop. The V5-131 also has comparatively good 3D graphics capabilities, thanks to the processor's on-chip AMD Radeon HD 8280 chipset. It's still not powerful enough to run our Dirt Showdown test, which we run at High quality, 4x AA and a resolution of 1,280x720, at a measureable frame rate, though. Dropping the quality to Ultra Low, however, brings the average frame rate all the way up to 32.1fps. That's incredibly good for a compact, low-cost laptop, although the screen is still rather too small for comfort. The 11.6in might be tiny but it has an outstanding contrast ratio of 935:1 and deep black levels of 0.21cd/m2. We'd be pleased with that result from a desktop monitor. The V5-131 also has a rather good keyboard and touchpad. Its keys are the widely-spaced type you usually find on modern laptops, but they give you a bit more feedback than we've come to expect from this style of keyboard. The keys are mostly large and easy to strike accurately , although the hash key is cramped up against the skinny enter key and the page and up and page down keys are right above the left and right cursor keys, making it a bit too easy to hit them by accident when navigating around a document. The touchpad is small but gains a bit of extra space by having its buttons integrated into the lower part of the pad itself. The pad is centrally located, so there's plenty of room to rest your wrists on either side of it, and we never found ourselves brushing it accidentally while typing. The laptop has a 500GB hard disk, so there's a decent amount of space to store data and install software. There's no room in the small chassis for a disc drive, but there's an SDXC card reader and two USB ports, one of which is USB3. There's a 3.5mm headset port which can alternatively be used to connect a normal set of stereo speakers. If you want to listen to music you should do this, as the internal speakers are really only suitable for system sounds. Music played through them sounded tinny and echoed strangely. There's no Ethernet port in the laptop's standard configuration, but there is a proprietary Acer converter port, which looks like a mini DisplayPort. It's actually a connector for a breakout box, sold separately, that gives you extra USB, VGA and LAN ports. Unless you get one of these boxes, the laptop can only be connected to a network via its built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi adaptor. Acer V5-131 Although the V5-131 chassis superficially resembles Acer's cheapest netbook-style low-power laptops, it feels much sturdier. Its brushed-metal effect lid and interior look quite sharp, too. It measures just 20x290x202mm and weighs 1.4kg, which means you can easily throw it into almost any bag and take it around with you. This makes its sturdy build quality even more welcome. It's small enough to comfortably use while commuting and did well in our battery tests, lasting for five hours and 21 minutes in our light usage test. This is by no means a powerful laptop and is only suitable for light use, but its small size and solid build quality make it worth buying if you need a really small computer to use on the move.
