Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644

One of the good touchscreen laptop choices to consider is the Acer Aspire M5-481PT-6644 with a 14″ inch display, an Intel Core i5 processor, Windows 8, and a price of around $700.

The Aspire M5-481PT-6644 is basically an ultrabook. It is a little bit bulkier than other ultrabooks, but provides a fairly big 14″ diagonal of the 10-point touch display at 1366×768 pixels and a DVD burner. It is 0.9″ thin and weighs 4.6 pounds, with gray aluminum as the main material used for the chassis.

The included Core i5-3337U dual-core processor is from the latest “Ivy Bridge” ultra-low voltage generation. We have no info on performance of the 3337U, since it is a freshly released one, but given that it has only 0.1GHz clock increase over the 3317U, it will be only slightly faster than the latter. Here’s info for the 3317U:

The CPU is accompanied by 6GB of DDR3 memory and a 500GB hard drive, supplemented by a 20GB solid state disk for improved performance of OS and apps. Other stand-out features are backlight keyboard and Bluetooth 4.0, while in other aspects the M5-481PT-6644 doesn’t stand out from the crowd. It has a webcam, stereo speakers, HDMI, two USB 3.0 ports, and an SD/MMC media card reader. A fact to worry about is ultrabook’s 3-cell battery, as opposed to four or even six cells, but Acer bravely claims the battery life is up to eight hours on this system.
