The Acer V3-371 is one of the most notable laptops. In addition to the Broadwell chips, this product also brings a new breath to the price range of $500 to $700 with SSDs. This is a very important equipment to start the machine very fast, the speed of file copying and the application is also faster.
Acer V3-371 is sold in market with 8 different configurations including 4 samples using Haswell chip and 4 others using the latest Broadwell chip. Most models have 128 GB SSDs. Two models using the 2.4 GHz Core i7-5500U chip include a 240GB SSD. The starting price for this model is $500 with configuration including 1.7GHz Core i3-4005U processor, 4 GB RAM, Intel HD Graphics 4400 chip.
Considering the overall design, Acer V3-371 does not have much change compared to the model launched in the second half of last year. However, instead of a completely plastic shell, the new product has replaced a 3-layer aluminum finish with ruffles to make the machine less dirty and more luxurious. This product is also highly mobile with a weight of just 1.49 kg (compared to other 13-inch laptops weighing about 1.8 kg) and a slim 19.8 mm. If users want to find a lightweight laptop but not enough money, the V3-371 can be considered one of the worthy models at the moment.
On the connectivity side, the V3-371 is quite well equipped with USB 3.0 ports, USB 2.0, HDMI, LAN, SD card slot. Although there is no VGA port to connect the projector, Acer has a handy built-in transfer port. The lack of a DVD optical drive makes the machine lighter but not too big a drawback.
The bounce and sensitivity of the keyboard is good, but the size of the navigation keys is small, so it’s hard to see long texts or surf the web. Meanwhile, Acer’s touchpad is quite impressive thanks to multi-touch support. In the web surfing experiment, using two fingers to scroll up and down the web page or zoom in is very responsive. The surface of the touchpad has a slight rug to help prevent slipping, but the feel about mouse’s speed is quite accurate.
However, the most striking feature of the V3-371 is its performance. Previously, SSDs only appeared on laptops priced at over $1000, now available on V3-371, even on the model with a starting price of $500. Upgrading SSDs is even more important to users than RAM.

This number for laptops using a typical HDD is about 20 seconds.
