Acer Vista Notebooks
Acer ended its week on Friday by releasing three new Aspire notebooks bolstered for Windows Vista. All new models have at least 120GB of hard disk space, ATI Radeon Xpress 1100 video for handling the Aero Glass interface, and a DVD rewriter to help author home movies. The 15.4-inch systems begin with the Aspire 3140 that uses a 1.8GHz Mobile Sempron processor, 512MB of RAM, and Vista Home Basic; the 5102a steps up to a 2.2GHz single-core Turion 64, 1GB of RAM, and Vista Home Premium. Topping the range is the Aspire 5103 which opts for a 1.6GHz dual-core Turion 64 X2 in addition to the memory and OS of the mid-range version.
The computer designer is shipping the systems now at prices of $721, $891, and $1,018 respectively in their initial Japanese release. A North American equivalent is uncertain. [via PC Launches]
