Nuovi Acer Aspire 8940 e 5940

acer_aspire_8935_ita_3


Milano, novembre 2009 – Performance straordinarie nel video-editing, tutto il piacere del divertimento in alta definizione e un’esperienza di gioco estrema: benvenuti nel mondo di Aspire 8940 e Aspire 5940, i notebook multimediali che offrono eccellenti capacità di computing, tecnologie audio e video sorprendenti e connettività veloce.

Il cuore dei nuovi Aspire è l’ultra veloce CPU Intel® Core™ i7 con il nuovo chipset Intel® PM55 Express, in grado di gestire otto thread di elaborazione su quattro core per offrire esperienze di gioco, multitasking e intrattenimento fantastiche. Basato sulla nuova micro-architettura Intel® Core, il processore Core™ i7 combina il massimo della performance ad un’elevata efficienza energetica, grazie alla tecnologia Intel TurboBoost, che accelera dinamicamente le prestazioni in base al carico di lavoro disabilitando i core non utilizzati per ridurre il consumo energetico. Questo a sua volta migliora l’efficienza termica prolungando la durata della batteria.

Uno sguardo alle altre caratteristiche conferma la promessa di performance stupefacenti. I pannelli CineCrystal™ con formato 16:9, disponibili in due dimensioni, 18,4” o 15,6”, vi consentiranno di catturare anche il più piccolo dettaglio dei vostri film preferiti, foto o giochi, grazie alle risoluzioni Full HD (1920x1080) o HD (1366x768). Gli eleganti display privi di cornice offrono una visione a tutto schermo e garantiscono colori naturali grazie alla saturazione di colore intensa e a un eccellente rapporto di contrasto.
I pannelli usano la tecnologia LED per la retroilluminazione, che, oltre a consentire una maggiore qualità di riproduzione dell’immagine e ad aumentare la leggibilità in condizioni di scarsa illuminazione, non contiene mercurio e riduce il consumo di energia.

Un audio accattivante attirerà i vostri sensi al centro di ogni scena. Il sistema audio di terza generazione Dolby Home Theater® con uscita audio surround True a 5.1 canali vi avvolgerà nel più puro dei suoni ad alta definizione. Mentre il booster Acer Tuba CineBass vi consentirà di provare l’emozione degli effetti a bassa frequenza. La qualità straordinaria del suono combinata alle potenti soluzioni grafiche, al sintonizzatore TV opzionale digitale integrato e al lettore Blu-ray Disc™ creano un’esperienza di intrattenimento che coinvolge tutti i sensi.

Le più recenti tecnologie audio e video si uniscono a design esclusivo, con dettagli e materiali innovativi: il risultato è una serie di notebook che si distinguono per lo stile unico e le funzionalità straordinarie di un sistema multimediale all’avanguardia. Le linee curve della cover liscia e lucida avvolgono il display sottile senza cornice e si aprono per rivelare la tastiera retroilluminata, con tasti larghi sospesi sulla base brillante. Scrivere non è mai stato così rilassante. Accanto alla tastiera le vostre dita potranno appoggiarsi sulla console Acer MediaTouch, anch’essa retroilluminata: con un tocco potranno avere il controllo totale del mondo dei suoni e dei colori creato da Aspire 8940 e 5940.
Il touchpad multigesture consente di zoomare, restringere, girare e sfogliare sia le immagini che le pagine di qualsiasi documento. La navigazione in punta di dita diventa così rapida e semplice. Il touchpad è dotato anche di tasto di blocco per evitare movimenti accidentali del cursore. Il tasto Acer PowerSmart aiuta, poi, a risparmiare energia per una maggiore durata della batteria.

I nuovi notebook offrono, inoltre, fino a 8 GB di memoria DDR3 per risposte estremamente rapide del sistema e una gestione continua delle richieste di multitasking. Per quanto riguarda lo storage, Aspire 8940 e 5940 possono essere equipaggiati con hard disk fino a 1280 GB (2x640GB ), per ospitare con facilità il vostro sempre più ampio archivio digitale. Il lettore di schede multi-in-1 supporta i formati di schede più usati per un trasferimento dei dati facile e veloce.

La piena connettività è assicurata dalle più avanzate tecnologie cablate e wireless: connessione di rete 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N Wi-Fi CERTIFIED®, con supporto di Acer SignalUp™ con tecnologia wireless Nplify™, Bluetooth® 2.0+ incorporato, Gigabit LAN e modem.
La soluzione Acer Video Conference include la webcam Acer Crystal Eye, Acer Video Conference Manager Software e la tecnologia Acer PureZone, che consente di mantenersi in contatto con i propri amici e di creare videoconferenze di lavoro.
Per proteggere il computer e i dati dagli accessi non autorizzati, le serie Aspire 8940 e 5940 possono essere equipaggiate con Acer Bio-Protection, un pacchetto di software per impronte digitali adattabile che, oltre alla protezione biometrica del computer, assicura anche un modo comodo e personalizzato per aprire le applicazioni, i collegamenti preferiti e le playlist.
