    Acer America announced U.S. availability of new Acer Aspire notebooks offering exceptional price/performance and cinematic high-definition entertainment to anyone on-the-go, including students and small business professionals.

    These systems boast a dynamic multimedia experience with cinematic HD, 16:9 widescreens and Dolby surround sound audio in a visually appealing sapphire design known as Gemstone Blue. The Aspire notebooks are engineered to suit the needs of users desiring an affordable mobile workhorse for being productive and enjoying digital life at school, on the road or at home.

    “As part of our highly acclaimed Gemstone Blue family, the latest Aspire notebooks feature excellent price/performance and mainstream entertainment in a mobile PC that delivers significant value for their investment,” said Ray Sawall, senior manager of product marketing for Acer America. “Consumers are increasingly selecting notebooks as their primary device. As proven by our latest Aspire notebooks, we recognize that value-based mobile PCs need to offer appealing aesthetics as well as great performance and multimedia capabilities.”

    Best-in-Class Price/Performance and Mobile Entertainment

    The new Acer Aspire AS5536 and Acer Aspire AS7735Z notebooks are outfitted to provide brilliant visuals and dynamic audio play. Featuring LED backlit technology and a 16:9 aspect ratio, the systems deliver bright, lifelike HD pictures. High-definition graphics from NVIDIA enhance imagery with vivid color and crisp detail. Combined with a Dolby Home Theater surround sound system, users will enjoy a vibrant audio experience.

    User-Friendly Design Enhances Navigation and Security

    Affording easy, intuitive PC navigation, the new Aspire notebooks have a multi-gesture touchpad, allowing users to pinch, flick and swirl their fingers across it. Users can scroll, zoom in and out and quickly flip through web pages, photos, spreadsheets and more. To prevent accidental cursor movement, a practical touchpad lock is incorporated.

    The new systems also come with Acer Backup Manager, a simple one-touch way to quickly and easily back-up all the important files and information stored on it, such as music, photos, video, contacts, emails and Internet favorites. It gives customers a simple, convenient way to backup files to another location such as a USB drive, external hard disk or another hard drive partition. Users can set Acer Backup Manager to schedule a regular time to back-up data automatically or simply press the button for an immediate back-up.

    The Acer Aspire AS7735Z boasts a convenient PowerSave Key. Located above the keyboard, the PowerSave Key allows customers to easily prolong battery life to extend uptime. A simple press of it activates the advanced power saving settings, traditionally a tedious procedure accessed through numerous software-based steps. This one-button approach simplifies the process, saving time while extending battery life.

    The notebooks deliver excellent performance with Windows Vista Home Premium with Service Pack 1, the latest wireless technology, up to 4GB memory and powerful Intel or AMD processors. Large hard drives start at 250 GB and are capable of storing a vast library of music, photos, spreadsheets and presentations.

    An Acer Crystal Eye webcam enables high-quality video chats and VoIP with friends, family and work associates. It can also capture still pictures and videos for sharing with others. An integrated multi-in-one media reader enables connection to peripherals and electronic devices, while an HDMI port allows the system to support any PC or TV video format via a single cable.

    What's the point of having DDR3 1066 in the laptop if the processor they use has a maximum FSB of 800?

    Acer wanting you to overclock? After reading that they'd removed 95% of the overclocking features on their Core i7 platform I REALLY don't believe that's their reason.

    Its a hidden sign Pyro - their teasing you. their tempting you to clock it. its like a worm on a hook wrigglin for its dear little insignificant life before becoming fishy munchies. its like the lump of shit that so big it cant be flushed down the loo - the opotunity is there as bright as the devils bollocks & its begging you to take action & do some dirty deeds......

    there are a few tools that you could use to overclock laptops - Clockgen would be a start but with laptops keeping overclocked kit is always an issue.

    If the cooling's no better than what they use on travelmates then you'd definitely be buying aftermarket heatsinks to put on the processor and the northbridge, the GPU too probably (IDK if you CAN get them for laptops but mine bloody well needs them). I ended up having to undervolt mine to prevent it from overheating, it still isn't usable while I'm wearing shorts, saying it burns is an understatement.

    Yeah, the only way I can overclock my system is through setFSB, but I can't get past 2.8GHz (2.793GHz really) because of DDR speed also increasing (and apparently the RAM can't handle it)

    You're the one who had the problem with bugs or something right?
    I knew there was someone on here who'd bought a prebuilt Acer i7 system.
    I'm guessing that there's no way you could flash the BIOS to a functioning one either is there?
