    When I got this laptop, my first impression was kinda meh.
    but then when I went into the Bios, I saw there was Hdd0 and Hdd1, in which Hdd0 was the only slot that was occoupied w/ hdd.
    So I tried to contact Acer and tried to find if there was anything regarding that other hdd slot.
    No help, so I just decided to test it to see myself.
    I popped the bottom cover open. and saw there was a msata connection that was empty.
    Ordered msata ssd and put it in there and bam, now my laptop has 128 gb msata ssd that’s running at sata 3 mode, and another 500 gb just for storage.
    Only thing I regret is the price, that it went down to lower $500 range in 2 days I got this laptop, but now this laptop is worth alot more.

    This laptop is definitely a great surprise for someone new to Windows 8 and semi-high-performance laptops.

    PROS:

    -The Aspire V5-572G is light, sturdy, and very eye-catching when experiencing it for the first time. The upgraded gpu is what completely sold me, and I needed a laptop I could use for school, occasional gaming, and for occasional distractions. This guy does all three.

    -Windows 8 was a new experience that took a day or so to get used to. FOLLOW THE MINI-TUTORIAL IN THE BEGINNING. It helps. Now that I’ve grasped the concept of Windows 8, I’m blazing through all of my software/applications faster than a bat out of hell. The only thing that could make this experience even better would be a touchscreen, but I can live without it.

    -Intel Turbo Boost was a new (for me) tech which gives the Intel i5 processor speed a boost from 1.8ghz – 2.6ghz when it needs to. So whenever I load up a heavy game (Skyrim, Bioshock:Inf, BF3, etc.), the Turbo Boost automatically clocks in and gives me the performance that I need to run smoothly. It’s very much like overclocking without the risk of overheating/damaging or even the hassle of manually overclocking.

    -The V5-572G comes with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 720M gpu. I recently bought my first GeForce GTX 660 Ti for my desktop, so having the NVIDIA cards in both my laptop and my desktop help me sleep at night. The benchmarks on the Aspire V5-572G are phenomenal. Along with the Turbo Boost, the gpu graphics are very mouth-watering compared to my elder Dell laptop.

    CONS:

    -After being spoiled with Solid-State Drives and high-rpm HDDs, the stock HDD was the only thing that was lacking. The V5-572G came with a Toshiba 5400rpm 500GB(True memory ~460GB) HDD. The transfer rates are slow due to it’s low 5400rpm, but if you have a few minutes to spare, then you’re golden. You can live with it. This is fixable, so I did not rate a star lower.

    -Out-of-the-box, the Aspire V5-572G is amazing. The power button is hidden in plain sight (it took me a while to find it), so finally finding it was exciting. Like every first boot-up/run, it was slow. But it wasn’t just slow, it was painfully slow. Slower than I’ve ever experienced; even my elder Dell laptop wasn’t this slow (maybe my expectations have changed now that I’m older?) I honestly began thinking something was wrong with it because of how slow it was running. However, I eventually figured out how to navigate Windows 8 and updated all of the drivers and the Windows Live updates. After updating and restarting once or twice, it boots up faster and loads applications/software faster than before. Funny how something that small can alter the entire performance of one piece of tech. After that slight hiccup, it’s all around one of the quickest laptops I’ve ever used.

    The Aspire V5-572G is amazing. The upgraded graphics, the turbo boosted processor, the portability, the weight, the price; everything was here. I believe the MSRP is $729.99 on Acer’s website, so saving an extra $100+ was also a swaying factor.

    Overall: Excellent.

    Ordered this computer because I wanted something that can play some decent games on medium settings. It has only arrived yesterday, but I am already in love with it. It feels solid, well built and has insane computing power for a laptop of its price. The Dedicated video card is a huge plus. The GT 720m is a newer card and it shows. You can easily play TF2, Runescape, LoL, Torchlight 2, Diablo 3 and many other “lower end” games on max settings. Then we get to the heavy hitters, like Crysis, BF3 and Skyrim. It handles Skyrim on medium at 35 FPS, BF3 on low at 25-40 and Crysis… well lets just say you can barely play it on low. That’s no big deal for me because I have a custom built desktop that can easily handle such games, but for others it might be a concern.

    The only con I have is Windows 8, It is AWFUL. I’ll be torrenting Win 9 as soon as it is released.
