Acer Aspire 5738PG

acer_aspire_5738pg_2


Milano, ottobre 2009 – Fino a poco tempo fa, la tecnologia touch era considerata futuristica e la si ritrovava solamente nei film di fantascienza.
In poco tempo, però, sono diventati una funzionalità comune di molti dispositivi di uso quotidiano, come smartphone, lettori MP3, ma anche sportelli del bancomat, e terminali del check-in in aeroporto. Grazie ai continui progressi tecnologici, inoltre, l'esperienza pratica di interagire con un dispositivo usando le funzioni multi-touch è sempre più piacevole. Oggi, le nuove possibilità di utilizzo degli schermi multi-touch introdotte da Windows 7 rivoluzioneranno l'interazione fra l'utente e il computer.

Aspire 5738PG è il primo notebook che usa le funzionalità touch screen del nuovo sistema operativo Microsoft Windows 7. Queste funzionalità cambieranno definitivamente il modo in cui interagiamo con il computer: i multi-touch screen non solo sostituiscono il mouse, ma cambiano l'approccio degli utenti alle tecnologie e i metodi di lavoro.
L'uso delle dita per manipolare gli oggetti, spostare le immagini, riprodurre i giochi, e persino scrivere a mano è senza dubbio il modo più semplice e intuitivo per accedere e interagire con un computer.

La tecnologia touch screen è accessibile a tutti ed è quindi ideale per gli utenti che non hanno ancora acquisito familiarità con l'uso del computer. Interagire con un notebook con semplici sfioramenti dello schermo è quanto più assomiglia all'esperienza pratica di utilizzo degli oggetti. La tecnologia touch screen, quindi, consente di avvicinare alla tecnologia gli utenti inesperti, offrendo un metodo nuovo e immediato.

Oltre a essere un mezzo divertente e stimolante che consente a tutti di gestire e condividere i contenuti digitali, la tecnologia multi-touch mette a disposizione più combinazioni di gesti per una più vasta gamma di funzionalità e un approccio più naturale e intuitivo. Con semplici tocchi, l'utente potrà effettuare operazioni quali sfogliare, ruotare, ingrandire e ridure. Tutto ciò rende l'utilizzo più veloce e istintivo, nonché molto più divertente. È possibile selezionare, sfogliare file, avviare applicazioni ed esplorare le opzioni dei menu.

Il punto di partenza di questa nuova esperienza pratica di computing è il fantastico Acer TouchPortal, da cui è possibile accedere ai propri file e dispositivi multimediali, trascinare le foto personali nell'archivio fotografico, riprodurre video e DVD e passare da un formato all'altro con il semplice sfioramento di un pulsante virtuale. Questo portale riunisce gli accessi a tutti i dispositivi del notebook e permette, ad esempio, di stampare le foto spostandole semplicemente nell'icona della stampante; l'utente potrà anche navigare nei siti Web e visualizzare qualsiasi parte della terra mediante l'applicazione Microsoft® Surface Globe. Con Acer TouchMemo è possibile scrivere a mano o creare degli appunti, per non perdere nessun appuntamento!

Il design glamour Gemstone di Acer consente ad Aspire 5738PG di distinguersi per la cover lucida blu zaffiro e per la trama opaca intricata del poggiapolsi NeoWeave enfatizzando stile e funzionalità. Il touchpad multigesture con scorrimento mediante movimento circolare e zoom tramite pinch permette di navigare in modo rapido e preciso, e di eseguire operazioni intuitive di zoom avanti e indietro con il tocco delle dita. Per evitare movimenti accidentali del cursore, il touchpad può essere bloccato.

Progettati per fornire un intrattenimento cinematografico ad alta definizione, i nuovi notebook sono dotati di schermo HD ad alta luminosità di 40 cm (15.6”) e un rapporto di aspetto nativo di 16:9. Lo schermo LCD Acer CineCrystal include la retroilluminazione a LED e garantisce realismo eccezionale, intensa saturazione del colore, nitidezza dei dettagli e risparmio energetico. Le soluzioni grafiche di fascia alta con tecnologia Dolby Home Theater® di terza generazione ottimizzato offrono permettono poi un intrattenimento di qualità eccezionale. Per un'esperienza davvero straordinaria, i notebook possono essere dotati di unità Blu-ray Disc™ che offre una riproduzione audio surround multi-canale ineguagliabile con effetti cinematografici estremamente coinvolgenti.

Aspire 5738PG, basato su tecnologia di processore Intel® Centrino® 2, consente l'elaborazione estremamente veloce anche delle applicazioni più avanzate. Le grandi dimensioni delle unità disco rigido rendono disponibile un ampio spazio di archiviazione permettendo di avviare il sistema e caricare le applicazioni più rapidamente. Il lettore di schede multi-in-one frontale supporta i formati di schede più comuni per consentire un trasferimento di dati rapido e facilitato. La memoria DDR3 dual-channel fino a 8GB assicura multitasking più veloce ed efficiente.

Aspire 5738PG è dotato di connessione di rete Intel® Wireless Wi-Fi CERTIFIED® e Gigabit Ethernet, per una connessione LAN veloce. In base al modello, 5738PG può essere dotato di modulo Wi-Fi®/WiMAX e Bluetooth® 2.1. La webcam Acer Crystal Eye integrata, che supporta la tecnologia Acer Primalite™, permette di impostare video chiamate e videoconferenze di qualità elevata per comunicare con amici, parenti e colleghi.

Per la massima sicurezza dei dati, Aspire 5738PG integra la soluzione di riconoscimento delle impronte digitali Acer Bio-Protection che, oltre a proteggere il vostro notebook dall'accesso indesiderato, offre un modo semplice e comodo per avviare le applicazioni di uso frequente. Inoltre, il tasto Acer Backup consente agli utenti di duplicare i file in un'altra posizione in modo semplice e rapido, e include un tasto programmabile per avviare il programma di propria scelta.

Funzionalità touch-screen, vista cinematografica spettacolare e affascinante audio surround: il nuovo Aspire 5738PG coinvolge davvero tutti i vostri sensi!
