With Haswell processors out and Computex
taking place in Taiwan this week, it’s a perfect time to announce new systems, and Acer has those in spades. It took the wraps off a total of 23 Aspire notebooks and six Aspire desktops that have Haswell processors. Not surprisingly, it’s billing the mobile systems as offering great battery life, thanks to the energy-saving Haswell
tech. Here are some particularly noteworthy systems to keep an eye out for.
Acer Aspire V7-482PG-9884-U Ultrabook
Acer is offering its high-end Aspire
V7-482PG-9884-U ultrabook only at acer.com. The $1,299.99 ultrabook boasts a 14-inch IPS
display and Intel Core i7-4500U processor, as well as NVIDIA GeForce GT750M graphics. The V2 will also include a 1TB hard drive and sport 12GB of system memory.
Aspire S7-392 Ultrabook
The Aspire S7-392 ultrabook will offer more configuration options. You can go with a Core i5-4200U or Core i7
-4500U processor and choose between 128GB and 256GB drives. Prices for this model start at $1,399.99 and can go up to $1,699.99.
Aspire V3-772G Gaming Laptop
Gaming laptops are not as out-of-reach as they used to be for many consumers, and the Acer Aspire V3-772G proves that point by offering a 17-inch
gaming system at a starting price of $999.99. Laptop options include a Core i7-4702MQ processor, up to 12GB of memory, and a 1TB hard drive. For graphics, you’re looking at an Nvidia GeForce GTX760M.
Acer Predator AG3-605-UR20 Gaming Desktop
And, if you feel the same way about desktops as my colleague Seth Colaner
does, there’s the entertainment/gaming-oriented Acer Predator
AG3-605-UR20. The system, which starts at $1,499.99, doesn’t have the space constraints of a laptop, which means oodles more memory (32GB, to be exact) and 3TB of hard drive storage. The PC is powered by an Intel Core i7-4770 (Turbo Boost brings the 3.4GHz clock speed to 3.9GHz) and an NVIDIA GeForce
GTX660 graphics card with 1.5GB of video memory.
These systems are available now or by the end of the month, so if you’re looking for a system to spice up your summer, you needn’t wait long.
