Acer launches new Aspire V3 laptop
The Taiwanese Acer has launched a new member of its Aspire V3 family – the Aspire V3 551G-X419, which offers a 15.6-inch monitor packed in a chassis that measures 381 x 33 x 251 mm.
The laptop itself is not a powerhouse, which is not necessarily bad news depending on what you will use it for, not to mention it comes at a lower price. Let’s look at the hardware inside – the Aspire V3 551G-X419 comes with an AMD A10-4600M Trinity APU with four cores that run at 2.3 GHz base clock speed (up to 3 GHz in Turbo Mode), integrated AMD Radeon HD 7660G graphics with 384 stream processors at 685 MHz, 6 GB of DDR3-1600 memory, a 750 GB 5400 rpm hard drive, and a 15.6-inch display that runs at 1366 x 768 pixels.
The Aspire V3 551G-X419 also packs a DVD drive, a card reader, a 1.3 MP camera, a Dolby Home Theater v4 sound system with two speakers, HDMI and D-Sub, USB 3.0 and 2.0 ports, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 and a 6-cell lithium-ion 4400 mAh battery.
The newest Aspire V3 laptop runs Windows 8 64-bit out of the box and sells for around USD 500.
