Acer Aspire V3-571G, a top of the range laptop for less than £680

The Acer Aspire V3-571G laptop is one of the very few Windows-based devices on the market that come with a full HD display. While smartphones and tablets are adopting the 1,920 x 1,080 resolution at an increasing pace, the world of laptops is still sticking, even at the top of the market, to 1,366 x 768 pixels.

But things are changing, the V3-571G for example has a 15.6in full HD LED backlit display, which still gives it a much lower pixel density compared to the “Retina Display”on the Apple MacBook Pro. It is powered by an Intel Core i5-3210M processor, a dual-core model clocked at 2.5GHz, based on the Ivy Bridge architecture, with 3MB cache and a turbo boost up to 3.1GHz.

Other features include 8GB of RAM, 1GB of RAM, a Blu-ray player, a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT540M graphics card with 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi, GbE, four USB 2.0 ports (and apparently no USB 3.0 ones), Bluetooth 4.0. VGA, HDMI, a card reader, a webcam, up to three hours battery life and a weight of 3.2Kg.

The Acer Aspire V3-571G costs just under £680 at SimplyAcer.com and comes with free delivery, a free 12-months subscription to BullGuard Internet Security and a free copy of Webroot anti-virus.
