“As we enter the back-to-school buying season, Acer’s new Aspire V5 notebook series has the right combination of style, mobility and performance that students and consumers need,” said Eric Ackerson, senior product marketing manager, Acer America. “This series is yet another example of Acer’s commitment to delivering high-quality PCs with the latest mobile technology and enhanced industrial design at an excellent value.”
Outfitted with the latest 3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i3 or Core i5 processors, the Aspire V5 notebooks deliver the performance that savvy consumers and students have come to expect for the most demanding tasks, whether running HD, 3D multimedia or multitasking. On Core i5 versions of the Aspire V5, Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 is built into the processor, improving the system’s performance by increasing the notebook’s CPU clock speed for demanding applications. This provides users with a better experience for enjoying movies, gaming and photo or video editing.
The Aspire V5 notebooks also offer a DVD drive for backing up data and burning music CDs along with a generous 500GB2 hard disk drive for plenty of storage space for large files and applications.
The Aspire V5 notebooks make it easy for users to enjoy their existing media library utilizing Acer clear.fi™, a simple digital entertainment solution to manage, store, share, and enjoy media among any clear.fi-enabled devices, in any room throughout the home.
The Aspire V5 notebooks feature an advanced 1.3 megapixel HD webcam perfect for crystal-clear video chats with friends and family or to capture still photos. The high pixel density webcam delivers outstanding video image quality at 24 frames per second. The built-in digital microphone supports the webcam to convey excellent voice quality, while minimizing background noise and echoes.
Connectivity is “Instant” With the Aspire V5 Easy to use on the go, the Aspire V5 notebooks feature Acer Instant Connect, which automatically scans and registers most-visited Wi-Fi access points, letting users connect to the Internet in just 2.5 seconds3, which is four times faster than conventional methods. Bluetooth® 4.0+ HS technology also lets users wirelessly connect their notebook to other Bluetooth-enabled devices such as phones, printers and hand-held organizers.
Featuring a USB 3.0 port, users can transfer files and movies with ease, including a 250GB movie in about 70 seconds. Users can charge external devices when the notebook is in sleep, hibernation or even when it’s turned off. Transfer speeds will be up to 10 to 400 times faster than older generations of USB.
The Aspire V5 notebooks are quiet and comfortable on the lap while in use. ENERGY STAR® certified, the Aspire V5 Series conserves power, provides up to five hours of battery life4 and is environmentally-friendly.
