TechRadar's verdict

"The Acer Aspire V5-122P feels like a notebook the Taiwanese company just dashed off between high-profile Ultrabook launches and, as such, is hard to recommend. What could have been a highly-portable touch-enabled work laptop is undone by a poor battery and some ropey usability issues."
