Acer Aspire V5-122 Reviewed

Acer introduced the Acer Aspire V5-122 last week, which comes with various display options. These ultra-thin devices are equipped with AMD’s newest APU, Temash. The chassis is constructed completely of polycarbonate material and it seems to have very good build quality. A proprietary port at the bottom on the laptops allows users to connect with a back up battery pack. On the sides, there are USB ports, VGA out and RJ-45 LAN socket.

The smallest model uses 11.6” touchscreen display at 1366 x 768 resolution, AMD A6-1450 quad-core APU clocked at 1GHz, 500GB HDD and 4GB of RAM.

Benchmarking with Cinebench shows us that the processor delivers about one-third the performance level of Intel Core i5 Ivy Bridge, while the GPU performance is comparable to the standard Intel HD Graphics 3000 found on Sandy Bridge chips. Overall, the Acer Aspire V5-122 seems to be placed halfway between Atom-powered netbooks and entry level ultrabooks.
