Acer Announces New Line of Aspire Notebooks

16 February 2011

Acer is launching the next generation of Aspire notebooks that will use both Intel’s 2nd generation Core processors and AMD’s fusion processors. These notebooks will have larger than average storage capacities for you to carry all your data with you wherever you go. The new Aspire 5750 and 5750G come with a storage space of 640GB while the Aspire 7750G has a storage space of 750GB. All models are upgradeable to include more storage.

The 5750 series comes with a 15.6 inch screen display (1366 x 768 resolution). The Aspire 7750G has a 17.3 inch HD+ Display (1600 x 900 resolution). The 5750 series has a wide aspect ratio of 16:9, which makes it great for movie watching. It features a high-definition LED-backlit Acer CineCrystal widescreen display, which allows consumers to enjoy and share full HD content effortlessly, and experience smooth and vivid DVD and HD video playback. It delivers crystal clear images and allows a person to use multiple applications simultaneously with good speed.

Both feature Dolby Advanced Audio v2 virtual surround sound and the 7750G is also available with an optional Blu-ray drive. Given this combination, these models will be quite the entertainment machines on the move. The notebooks are powered by the ultra-fast, 2nd-generation Intel Core i7 (2630QM) quad-core processor featuring Turbo Boost 2.0. It also has smart graphics power on demand, which means it shuts off the dedicated graphics chip when not required. This saves battery life and gives you more unplugged time.

The Aspire 5750G is one of the first of its kind in the market to sport NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M graphics, which includes full DirectX 11 support along with NVIDIA Optimus technology (which is the smart graphics switching technology from NVIDIA). The Aspire 7750G notebooks on the other hand are outfitted with power-efficient discrete ATI Mobility Radeon HD 6550 or 6650 graphics.

The notebooks support 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi standards and also have Gigabit Ethernet.. They also have a 1.3 megapixel webcam that they claim to be HD but don’t get your hopes up.

One good thing is that other than coming with Windows 7 Home Premium, these notebooks also come with MS Office Starter Edition, making them good options for teachers and students alike.

The notebooks come in a single color, black. However, the designs are quite nice and matte finished textured mesh-like surface prevents smudges and scratches on its surface. The new Aspires come in two format sizes – 35.5 cm (14”) for the Aspire 4253, and 39.5 cm (15.6”) for the Aspire 5253. The models will have a starting price of $899.99 (~£660), while the 7750G will start at $1029.99 (~£770). UK release dates are still unannounced. However, it is expected to be in the first quarter of this year. With the US market still somewhat slow and netbooks diluting sales still, the last few quarters have been hard for laptop makers. That is why it seems like Acer is trying hard to keep it super simple and functional with their latest models.
