Acer and Gateway Notebooks Showcase Cool Features, Snappy Updates

  • MORE

Turn the corner at Computex and you never know what you might find. We found the Acer/Gateway booth and unturned one new netbook and a troop of new mainstream multimedia notebooks, each offering  the latest Core i5/ Core i7 CPUs in addition to their own special bells-and-whistles.

The Gateway LT23 netbook, for instance, has a cute pixel swirl that decorates the rest area around the keyboard and the new EC series sports a glow-in-the-dark trackpad.

Of course the celebratory crannies of these notebooks aren't all cosmetic. Acer's multimedia Aspire 5745PG comes with an HD LED-backlit multi-touch display, HDMI output, the latest suite of sound software from Dolby, and a Blu-ray disc drive.  The 14-inch Gateway ID49C also packs an HD display, packs a hard drive configurable in excess of 640GB, and ships with Nvidia's Optimus technology for seamlessly switchable graphics.

No price points or availability dates for any of these machines just yet, but that means  you can focus your excitement of their sheer existence. Do so by checking out the specs and a gallery of pictures below.
