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

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.
