Acer intros flurry of new Aspire and TimelineX laptops, with Nvidia and ATI graphics
Acer has just launched a bunch of Aspire and TimelineX models, including everything from the 2GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850, to 3D and full HD 1080p for less than $1000. They are all expected soon, and will hopefully hit the market sometime this year. Check them out below:
Acer Aspire models
Introducing the Acer Aspire AS5745DG, a 3D laptop that’s priced at $999 or less than Rs. 50,000...featuring Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology in the form of the active shutter glasses, GeForce GT 420M graphics card, and obligatory 120MHz screen with an integrated IR receiver. All this makes it one of the most inexpensive 3D laptops out there, bringing 3D closer to the masses.
The laptop will release in late October, and Acer didn’t skimp too much on the remaining specifications, which include an 18.4-inch screen that supports full 1080p HD, a 500GB storage drive, Acer Arcade Deluxe software (2D to 3D image converter), Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, a 1.3-MP Crystal Eye HD webcam, 4 USB ports, and a 9-cell battery. No Blu-ray drive is the only real compromise, with but then again, you could always buy an external one, and still be saving some cash.
15.6-inch AS5742G and AS5745
Acer also outed the specs for four other Aspire laptops, including the two 15.6-inch AS5742G and AS5745 models, which are decked out with Nvidia’s brand new GeForce 400M series GPUs.
