Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 Laptop Review

Today we are taking a look at the recently launched Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 15.6-Inch Laptop. This Laptop has the makings a very good all rounder, useful for just about anyone, no mater what usage they intend.

The Exterior

The Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 15.6-Inch Laptop comes in a very elegant matte silver finish. Acer calls it Platinum Silver. It also has a texture mimicking brushed aluminum. This finish is present on nearly all upward facing surfaces. The underside, the sides and the display border have a typical matte black finish.
The Top Cover has the same matte silver brushed aluminum look with the Acer logo on the middle of the right side in chrome.
On the inside we find a contrasting full sized keyboard set against the textured silver finish. To this we have a generously sized touchpad that is slightly offset for better typing comfort. The touchpad has no visible buttons to it. The bottom corners of the touchpad act as the right and left click buttons.
Just underneath the keyboard, on the right side we have the Aspire V logo in black lettering. The power button is located above the keyboard on the left side.
The Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 comes equipped with a 15.6″ Full HD Widescreen CineCrystal™ LED-backlit display. This is a fullHD 1080p display having a screen resolution of 1920 x 1080, very good for design and detail work. The display is surrounded by a wide matte black border that contains the HD Webcam in the middle of the top edge. On the bottom edge of the display we have a silver Acer logo.

The Connectivity

The Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 comes equipped with all the currently available connectivity options.
On the right side of the Laptop we find the Power-port, the DVD/CD-Writer, and 2 USB 2.0 Ports.
On the left side we find the Kensington-Lock port, the VGA-port, the Ethernet port, HDMI-Port, one USB 3.0 Port and the Mic/Headphones Combo Port.
The Card reader is located on the front edge of the Notebook, right next to the status LEDs on the left side.
As for wireless connectivity the Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 comes with WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n Wireless LAN and Bluetooth® 4.0.
For such a recently launched device I find it strange to only have one USB 3.0-Port. Most competitors in this price range have at least two ports.

The Performance

The Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 comes with a 4th Generation Intel Core i5-4210U processor running at 1.7 GHz. This processor will clock up to 2.7 GHz with Turbo Boost under load, making it very capable indeed. This processor is also part of Intel’s ULV(ultra low voltage) processor family, with a Max TDP of just 15 W. To this the Acer has decided to also equip this laptop with 8 GB of DDR3L(much lower voltage to DDR3) RAM. Thanks to this combination and the 6-cell Li-Ion battery (5000mAh) I believe Acer’s declared battery life of up to 7 hours.
The combination between the Intel Core i5-4210U and 8GB of DDR3L RAM alone should be enough for the performance needs of most power users, but the Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 has an ace up its sleve in the form of the NVIDIA® GeForce® 840M with 2 GB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM. This makes this laptop also a very capable gaming machine. Most of the recently launched games can be played in WXGA resolution (1366 x 768) and medium to high detail settings without braking sweat.
A bonus point of the DDR3L RAM modules is that lower voltages will create less heat and this will increase the life of the modules themselves and will also help keep the entire laptop cooler. This laptop has the option to upgrade the RAM up to a maximum of 16 GB if needed.
For storage the Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 comes with a 1TB HDD that offers enough storage space for almost anyone.

  • Power User
    Most power users will find everything they need in a high performance laptop in an Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9. The good Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of RAM will make multitasking a non issue with this device. If needed the RAM can be upgraded to 16 GB. Thanks to the presence of a dedicated graphics card video processing and editing can also be done with this laptop.

  • Gaming
    Considering the capabilities of the nVidia GeForce 840M graphics card, I think the Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 will make for a good gaming laptop. The 8GB of RAM and good processor will keep the load times low and thanks to most of the low voltage components this laptop should remain cool under heavy load.

  • Business User
    The up to 7-hours of battery life makes the Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 a very good business laptop. Working any extended time away form a power source wont pose a problem for this device. The elegant and simple design makes it workplace friendly. The performance is more than would be expected from a business laptop. I think this laptop will only make sense for a business user as a long term buy.

  • Student
    The Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 is an ideal tool for someone studying engineering or other branches with high computing needs. This laptop has the performance to run resource intensive modeling and simulation software. The addition of a graphics card makes it a good buy also for architecture or photo journalism students.

  • Casual User
    Considering the needs of a casual user, I think the Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 has more performance than will ever be needed. I think a casual user will buy this device only if he want's something for the next half decade.


The Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 proves that you can find a laptop capable of gaming and hard multitasking for a budget. Thanks to the combination of ULV Intel Core i5 processor and 8GB of DDR3L RAM it has a very good battery life. The addition of the nVidia GeForce 840M graphics card turns this otherwise powerful laptop into a good gaming laptop.

The only con I can find at the moment with the Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 is the fact that for such a capable device it only has one USB 3.0 port. Most of its competitors have at least 2 if not all their USB port in the 3.0 standard.


It is sometimes hard to find a very well balanced and capable configuration on a budget. The Acer Aspire V3-572G-54L9 proves that it can occasionally be done. It is a very versatile laptop being useful in almost all circumstances. It proves it can be a good gaming laptop, power laptop, business laptop or even a laptop for a student. I think it's a very good package overall and anyone considering a new laptop needs to have a look at it.
