Acer launched a new range of products utilizing some of the hottest concepts today – 3D and multitouch. Their new products include notebooks, projectors, and all-in-one PCs.
In their multi-touch segment is a new Acer Aspire 5738PzG series notebook which comes with a large 15.6-inch multi-touch screen, and comes with Windows 7 to make full use of the feature. The laptop is priced at Rs. 43,500 excluding taxes.
Another interesting product they have launched which used multi-touch, is their new Aspire 5600 series All-in-One (AIO) PCs. The AIO comes with a full 1080p HD enabled 23-inch multi-touch screen, with a powerful configuration: an Intel Core 2 Quad processor 2.33 GHz (Q8200), 4 GB of RAM, a 1 TB HDD, and a 512 MB graphics card.
The AIO PC will also come with an inbuilt DVD RW, and TV Tuner. Loaded with Window 7 Home Premium and a suite of Acer applications to help ease users into their new touch environment, the series is priced at a starting point of Rs. 60,000, excluding taxes.
Among their new 3D-enabled products is the new 5738D 3D Notebook, and the X1261 3D-ready projector.
The new notebook uses a combination of a special 3D “coating” on the screen, and polarized glasses to bring you a 3D experience. It will also come with software which will allow it to display videos, images, and games in 3D. The notebook is HDTV ready and comes with a connector that will allow it to be used with an external screen – although you will most certainly lose the 3D functionality in this case. The notebook will also come with 4 GB memory, and an option of either a dual-core Pentium, or a Core 2 Duo processor. The netbooks will start at a price of Rs. 43,000 for the Aspire 5738DzG.
The new X1261 projector showcases “2500 ANSI Lumens brightness, a contrast ratio of up to 3700:1 a native XGA resolution & a lamp life of up to 4000 hours.” It is capable of displaying 3D images by projecting both right-eye and left-eye images which can then be viewed using an appropriate 3D glasses to get a 3D effect.
