Acer Gemstone at US Retail

Acer has quietly rolled out its Gemstone design notebooks to US stores, offering a special configuration for retail that may be the least expensive HD DVD notebook available in the US. A version of the Aspire 5920 provides support for reading the next-gen disc as well as reading and writing CDs and DVDs; it also includes the 256MB GeForce 8600M GT and HDMI output of the upper-echelon portables for displaying 1080p video at its native resolution without dropped frames. Cost savings primarily come through the choice of the recently introduced low-price 1.5GHz Core 2 Duo and a 1280x800, 15.4-inch display.

Spotted so far only at Best Buy, the new model sells for $1,300 equipped with 2GB of memory, a 160GB hard drive, and Vista Home Premium as well as the HD DVD drive and all other AV features. Different specifications are so far available only through direct orders.
