Dubai, January 17, 2008
Acer, the third largest vendor in the global PC market, has unveiled Aspire 2920, the first ultra-portable notebook crafted with Acer’s exclusive Gemstone design.
Colours are an incomparable expression of design and, together with form, are considered the most powerful design elements. The Aspire 2920 is designed to emphasise the natural elegance and simplicity of Acer’s Gemstone design concept. Indeed Acer’s new notebook series expresses a clean design, pure power, and maximum portability for mobile users, said an official spokesman.
“The notebook market in the Middle East is very competitive,” said product marketing manager, Mobility Products, Acer Computer Middle East, Mark Prosser.
“Tech-savvy customers across the Middle East will be surprised by the versatility of the 2920. Sleek, compact and stylish, it’s the perfect mobility tool,” he added.
The Aspire 2920 series is a lightweight notebook weighing just two kilos yet packs a complete set of advanced multimedia features. Its ultra-bright 12.1” widescreen LCD panel (pixel resolution of 1280x800) is managed directly by the Mobile Intel GM965 Express Chipset with integrated 3D graphics, featuring Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 with up to 358 MB of Intel Dynamic Video Memory Technology 4.0, and support for Microsoft DirectX 9 and DirectX 10. Coupled with a battery life of up to 4.5 hours, the Aspire 2920 ensures long-lasting mobile multimedia enjoyment.
This versatile notebook delivers an extraordinary audio-video experience thanks to its Dolby Home Theater Virtual Surround Sound speakers that allow listeners to enjoy movies, music and games in vivid surround sound.
A richer cinematic experience is achieved thanks to Acer Arcade entertainment suite pre-installed on the Aspire 2920. The Arcade suite integrates Acer CinemaVision and Acer ClearVision, two technologies that minimize picture distortion and enhance image quality.
