Acer Aspire 5920 and 4710

Acer this afternoon announced that its new Gemstone notebooks were at last reaching the US in two models. The 15.4-inch Aspire 5920 arrives as the showcase of the entire line with a still-rare HD DVD reader and DVD rewriter combo drive as standard. Audio is also produced in Dolby Home Theater virtual surround for stereo sources or real surround with the right mix of hardware and content. Performance is also high-end with a 2GHz Core 2 Duo, 2GB of memory, a 200GB hard disk, and a GeForce 8600M GT for graphics duties. It sells in shops and online today for $1,999.

Also released today is the 14-inch Aspire 4710. Though smaller, it retains the same design and preserves much of the baseline performance, including an unspecified Core 2 Duo processor and a Dolby-capable sound system with SPDIF output. Acer ships the 4710 at a significantly lower price of $599.
