A few days ago, we talked about the new family of ultrathin notebook Acer Aspire V5, presented at CeBIT Hanover 2012. After a first discussion on the 11.6-inch (for completeness there riproponiano) today we focus primarily on two templates with the diagonal, from 14 inch, 15 and that we show in a live video. The taiwanese company has done a great job in order to realize these new laptops, because he had to combine seemingly incompatible aspects between them, how to care for detail and, in General, for the aesthetic appearance, compact dimensions and an endowment sufficient to allow the use of notebooks in different scenarios, from professional to intrattenitivo, at very competitive prices.
Observing the results we can say that Acer has succeeded perfectly in the enterprise and the new Aspire V5 are really interesting notebook. Aesthetically the Aspire V5 reproduce the design that characterizes the ultrabook Aspire S3. We find the same modern style, essential and stylized, tense and composed lines as well. The finishes are good and have the appearance of brushed aluminum, thus helping to convey a feeling of sophistication and elegance.
Thicknesses are very low, though slightly higher than those of the S series, we talk to 21 mm for the model by 14-inch and 23 mm for the 15.6 inch. Thanks to this increase in size Acer has managed to integrate full size doors, a dedicated video card, and the diagonal model, which reaches 2.3 Kg of weight, even an optical drive. But the care aspect also means attention to detail, as in the case of the chiclet keyboard with numeric keypad dedicated also to the largest model, or in the choice of colours, that in addition to the classic color aluminum also include two special colours like pink and blue, both with metallic effect.
At the moment there are not many details regarding the hardware platform, due to the slippage of the dates of onset of new Intel processors and Nvidia. Acer has stated that there will be two versions of Aspire V5, a low-end, which will take the name of Acer Aspire One, equipped with Pentium processors and high-end one, which adopts the latest Intel CPU Ivy Bridge, with models belonging to the families Core i3 and Core i5 and a dedicated graphics card Nvidia GeForce GT 600 m. The new Acer Aspire V5 will arrive on the market during the second quarter of this year, with a price tag, not yet official, which should vary from 499 to 699 euros.
