Acer Aspire V5 Touch in AMD Temash Version. Available Now (and Incoming!)

Posted on 07 May 2013, Last updated on 07 May 2013 by

The Acer Aspire V5 has always been a notebook to keep an eye on. It’s not quite an Ultrabook but comes with a very nice price which probably explains why it appears to have been a big seller. Variants range from an AMD C-70 version with an 11.6” screen at netbook pricing up to a Core i5 with 15.6″-inch touchscreen and 750GB drive. An AMD Temash A6-1450 4-core 1Ghz with 1.4Ghz Turbo is also now available. The 11.6-inch screen will be multi-touch and the price about $450.  We’ve ordered one.

Update: All specifications, images, a few videos and comments now in our Acer Aspire V5-122 specifications page.


The Acer Aspire V5 with AMD Temash will start with 2GB of RAM, no SSD-cache and, the same low-capacity battery found on the other models (30Wh for about 3-4hrs) but if you fancy doing some upgrades and don’t need huge battery life, it’s worth looking at. The 11.6” models weighs 1.38KG, have graphics performance above what you’ll find with an Ivy Bridge Ultrabook and, clock-for-clock, similar CPU power. [More information on AMD Temash]

In Germany the Acer Aspire V5-122P-61454G50NSS is already available with 4GB, 500GB hard disk, 30Wh battery and even a back-lit keyboard for around 480 Euros (inc 19% tax)

Update: The new V5 122 has a DisplayPort and slot for additional battery. Note that this is a new design of V5 compared to previous 11.6″ V5’s

We haven’t tested the A6-1450 yet but we’re interested enough to have just pushed the button on an order. The V5 will be here later this week and we have a couple of BP4 SSD drives from MyDigitalDiscount that are ready to be dropped in!
