You read well. 15.4-inch screens are the most common measurement in notebooks, but both the Acer Aspire 5535 and the Acer Aspire 5735 have a 15.6-inch screen . A curiosity within these two models that Acer intended for the home user who wants to enjoy high definition at home , without resorting to the larger (and therefore heavier) screens of the Gemstone Blue family .
Both therefore remain at a weight of 2.7 kilos . As with all the home notebooks that we have seen at the Global Press Conference that the Taiwanese firm recently held in Budapest , they carry all the already classic elements of the Gemstone design : rounded edges , the Acer logo with floating effect on the case, touch controls backlit and a little novelty: the touchpad supports gestures .
With a circular movement of our finger, we can scroll (as we saw in the new Toughbook from Panasonic , while maintaining the classic rectangular shape). With a little pinch, we zoom in on the photos , just like on the iPhone . Multitouch very common in details MacBook from Apple , but more difficult to locate an on PCs, ie, computers that work with Windows .
As we said at the beginning, they are focused on high definition, hence it has screens with a 16: 9 panoramic ratio and 1366 x 768 pixels resolution . In other words, they are " HD Ready " displays . However, they do not have an HDMI output to connect to the living room TV nor do they incorporate a Blu-ray disc reader , as it only accepts CDs and DVDs. They are more oriented to show on your own screen the content that we save on your hard drive (see Internet downloads), which will have a maximum capacity of 320 GB .
Apart from the name, both models are distinguished by the processor and the graphics card . In this way, the Acer Aspire 5535 follows in the wake of its predecessor Aspire 5530 , taking advantage of the so-called Puma platform : AMD Turion X2 processor with a speed cap of 2.5 GHz and ATI Radeon HD 3200 graphics card with 256 MB of memory Of video.
The Acer Aspire 5735 , on the other hand, opts for the Montevina platform : Centrino 2 processors (with a wide variety of Intel Core 2 Duo whose maximum speed is 2.2 GHz ) and integrated graphics
Intel GMA 4500MHD . Both can carry between 2 and 4 GB of RAM memory , and have integrated stereo speakers , three USB ports , VGA output for external monitor and memory card reader (SD, MMC, MS, MS Pro and xD).
They also have the usual wireless connections ( Wi-Fi and Bluetooth ) and achieve an autonomy of three hours with a six-cell battery. Two different alternatives in which the multi-touch touchpad particularly attracts attention , although an NVIDIA GeForce graphics card would not have been amiss, at least in the Aspire 5735.
