The Acer Aspire AS5739G Is a Powerful Blu-ray Laptop For $750S

Today, Acer announced their updated line of Aspire laptops. But the most interesting has to be the Aspire AS5739G, a no-compromises performance machine with a tempting price of $750.

The system features a 15.6-inch LED LCD (1366x768), 2.1Ghz Core2 Duo processor, 4GB of DDR3 RAM and a GeForce GT130 graphics card packing an extra 1GB of memory. (That card can't run Crysis in high settings, but it can run something lighter weight like Left4Dead, according to Notebookcheck.)

There's also an 8X Blu-ray drive, 250GB hard drive, Dolby 5.1 output, fingerprint recognition and multitouch support. Oh, and it's not even ugly (though it's quite likely heavy as all hell). The Aspire AS5739G is available now.

Taking mainstream entertainment performance another step up, the Aspire AS5739G offers even more power and extras. It's fueled by the power of Intel Core 2 Duo processing for experiencing the ultimate in digital media.

Increasing dynamic visual quality, a 15.6-inch HD CineCrystal display delivers lifelike images in a high 1366 x 768 pixel resolution. Dedicated NVIDIA GeForce® GT130M graphics provide crystal-clear images with brilliant color, making games and digital media appear incredibly crisp and realistic.

The system also comes outfitted with a Dolby Home Theater surround sound system, two built-in stereo speakers, an Acer Tuba CineBass booster and 5.1-channel output. Combined these high-fidelity features liberate the senses with vibrant audio that brings movies and music to life.

Security features include an Acer PowerSmart Key that backs up data without a hassle by duplicating files to another location with just a push of a button. An Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint reader for securing and privatizing personal information is also incorporated.

The Acer Aspire AS5739G notebook will be available end of June for U.S. customers at leading retailers. Specifications and pricing follow.
