Acer has announced its latest Aspire V5 series touchscreen notebook, featuring a 10-point touch display and a large trackpad, designed to enhance multi-gesture content consumption and to take advantage of the features offered by Windows 8.

The V5 series notebooks are all 30% slimmer than the same class in 2-spindle design with DVD and ergonomic thermal design, according to Acer.

The V5 series also features Acer Instant Connect, which automatically scans and registers most-visited access points, letting users connect to the Internet in 2.5 seconds.
