Acer held a press conference earlier this morning in New York where the company debuted an impressive line of V7 and V5 Ultrabooks. The new line offers choice, style and performance and that’s exactly what laptops need to survive in today’s market.
The new Aspire V5 and Aspire V7 (shown below) line come with some pretty impressive standard features, all with the hardware and price to keep them competitive. Both models have a 14″ or 15.6″ display offering a (1,366 x 768) or the beautiful (1,920 x 1,080) display options. There is a 11.6″ model in the V5 line but that is not offered in the V7 line-up. That 11.6″ model goes directly after the Macbook Air, coming in at just 3 lbs and less than 1″ thick. The line comes in a multitude of colors with varying screen sizes, resolutions, with or without touch and with varying performance and graphics capabilities.
“The new Acer Aspire V5 and V7 Series are all about giving our customers a wide range of performance and entertainment features from which to choose,” said Sumit Agnihotry, vice president, product marketing, Acer America. “In addition to adding full high-definition panels, more powerful graphics and solid state drives to the V Series, models are up to 9 percent slimmer than the previous generation.”
Any of the models can be stocked with dual or quad-core AMD or Intel chips (which will of course alter the base price) with NVIDIA’s GeForce GT7XXM series or AMD’s Radeon HD8750 discrete graphics series as the alternative choices. Since laptops are quickly becoming the go-to option for replacing workdesks, the models come with the Acer Converter Port allowing it to easily connect to an external display or a HDD, or other ports that you may need. Pricing starts at $499 for the basic model but stay fairly low when comparing them to other laptops in the genre.
