Acer Aspire V3-372T review

  (Rating Hidden)

Strangely, the Acer Aspire V3-372T is the 13-inch iteration of the brand's V 13 laptop range. There's no doubting its credentials, with an impressive-sounding processor and 1920x1080 resolution HD display. But is it good enough to recommend? We put it...

Acer Aspire V3-372-57CW Subnotebook Review


Let the games begin. A subnotebook suitable for gaming, but with Intel Graphics - is that even possible? The Acer Aspire V3-372 puts an end to the question and it does so at an attractive price point. Is that alone enough though for us to recommend...

slim design ; solid construction ; USB Typ C ; IPS display with great viewing angle stability ; high performance ; handles games ; good speakers ; long battery life

not easy to maintain ; can get a little noisy under load ; graphics driver issues at times ; display brightness and color accuracy could be better

At 720 Euro (~$800), Acer's Aspire V3-372-57CW is certainly an attractive package. In some areas, the subnotebook handily competes with the much more expensive Asus Zenbook UX303UB. The build quality and the input devices won't satisfy everyone, but...

Acer Aspire V3 reviewed: Budget powerhouse


If you've only got $800 to spend and want the best performance money can buy, Acer's top-of-the-line midrange budget laptop, the Aspire V3-571G-9435, is worth your attention.

The ; has a fast quad-core Core i7 processor and powerful Nvidia graphics, matching what you'd see in a high-end 15-inch laptop for a fraction of the cost.

Mediocre screen quality, a plastic, budget-feeling body, and poor touch-pad responsiveness keep this from being a premium product.

Budget laptop shoppers looking for pure performance for $800 should flock to the Acer Aspire V3-571G-9435, but those looking for a comfortable, easily portable laptop should look elsewhere.
