If you are after a workstation laptop, one that can crunch data fast, then check out this Acer Aspire V3-571-73634G50Makk laptop, one which is on sale on CCL Computers' online outlet shop via eBay, for £473.50, a price that includes delivery and 473 Nectar points.
The device comes with an Intel Core i7-3632QM processor clocked at 2.2GHz with 6MB cache. It is based on the third generation Ivy Bridge architecture and therefore includes an Intel HD 4000 Graphics unit as well.
There's also a hard disk drive (500GB spinning at 5,400RPM), a 15.6in CineCrystal LCD display with a 1,366 x 768 pixel resolution, a DVD writer, VGA, HDMI, three USB ports, an Ethernet connector, a card reader, a dedicated numeric keypad, a webcam, Bluetooth 4.0, Acer's Nplify Wi-Fi and 4GB of RAM.
Needless to say that the laptop (also referred to as the NX.RYFEK.022) is more likely to impress because of its processing power rather than any other features. We'd possibly want to improve on the amount of RAM bundled but otherwise, that Aspire V3-571 seems to be a fine device overall.
