Acer Aspire V5 and AMD Temash Testing (Live Session Notes)

Tags: ,


S5testUpdate: The Live Testing session is over. Some notes below.

I’ve just started a live stream while I test the Acer Aspire V5 122P, the AMD Temash-based laptop. The stream will run from now and at 2100 Berlin (15 minutes from this post) I’ll start to introduce the Acer and do some interactive active testing, Q&A with anyone that joins in the chat.

It’s all happening on the live page right now.

Notes from Live Session below.

Update: A more controlled set of tests have now been completed. See results here.

Acer Aspire V5 122P Unboxing, AMD Temash A6-1450 First Tests

The Acer Aspire V5 122P is an 11.6” sub-notebook running on an AMD Temash processor which I’ve highlighted before as being potentially interesting for mobile Windows 8 because it, theoretically, offers performance that sits between netbooks and Ultrabooks while offering very good efficiency. I’ve unboxed the Acer V5 122P and found a well-balanced, very good value touchscreen notebook that could appeal to many people looking at the sub-$500 bracket. It’s not an Ultrabook in terms of raw performance but it feels like it hits a nice sweet-spot.

Update: Detailed processor performance tests are being performed here.

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

Tags: , , , ,


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.
