Acer Aspire V 13 V3-372T-5051 Signature Edition
As trends steer us to more portable solutions for our computing needs on the go, the smaller notebook has grown in popularity. A longtime leader in the field, Acer has mastered the art of providing stylish, easy to carry smaller footprint notebooks, and now they add in a full HD touchscreen and snappy performance into the mix. The Acer Aspire V 13 brings some high end technology to a lower price point, but what is it like to live with?
The first thing you notice about this notebook is the color, the sharp white case provides an interesting alternative to the norm, but happily the beauty of this notebook is not just skin deep. The case is sleek, thin and has a quality feel thanks to the textured finish on the aluminum lid.
- Intel Core i5-6200U 2.3 GHz
- 6 GB DDR3L SDRAM

- 3-Inch Touch Screen
- Long battery life
An aluminum shell ensures plenty of protection when out and about, and the generally solid construction and use of high quality materials means that it should survive everyday life with ease. Despite our reservations about the bright white color and issues with what that would look like after a few weeks of use, it is easy to clean and keeps its bright, attractive finish very well.
As with all Signature Series notebooks from Microsoft, security is handled by Microsoft Defender, fully set up before delivery by Microsoft themselves, providing first rate protection for all your computing activities. Additionally, Signature Series devices come without trial software or any other extraneous programs that you do not need and act only to slow down your computer. While it is lacking dedicated malware software, there are some provisions for this within the Windows security system, but it is worth considering adding your own later for complete peace of mind.
