Acer Aspire notebooks

Acer brought a slew of Aspire consumer PCs to CES 2011, including systems based on both AMD's Fusion APU platform and Intel's Sandy Bridge processors. Although Acer has said it will give customers the option of either free repairs once Intel fixes the chipsets or a complete replacement of comparable performance, in retrospect providing both appears to have been a good idea. Regardless, Acer at CES 2011 launched its Aspire Acer Aspire AS5750, AS7750, and AS8950 models equipped with the second-generation Intel core Sandy Bridge chips, while the Acer Aspire AS5253 runs on AMD Fusion.

The Aspire 7750G offers a choice between AMD's Radeon HD 6550 or Radeon HD 6650 graphics cards, and includes an optional Blu-ray drive. It supports up to 8 GB of DDR3 RAM, and up to 750 GB of hard drive space. The Aspire 5750 come with up to 6 GB of RAM, and up to 640 GB of hard drive space.
