              The Acer v5 touch is an awesome computer. It is thin and sleek, the touchscreen is a joy to work with and the backlit keys are definitely a welcome addition. The only drawback is Windows 8, wow, what a difficult system to navigate through. Had to google search almost everything. Can't imagine why anyone would want to design a system that has a totally hidden way to turn it off. Microsoft programmers better go get an internship at Apple to learn how its done.

              I use this mainly for surfing the web and playing games. I love this computer. It has good display, I like the screen size, and and it has good sound quality. Overall, I have no issues with it. Things I don't like include battery life and the fact that I may need to contact Acer in order to upgrade graphics card. I can't seem to find any other way to do this.
