Wow. When it rains, it really pours in Taiwan, apparently. Acer has been keeping remarkably busy these last couple of days, unveiling smartphones, tablets, and more. Adding to that list is the new Acer AS5745DG-A54E/L. It matters because it’s the first 3D laptop from the company.
They really ought to do something about making a more memorable name, because I can’t imagine the average Joe walking into a Best Buy and asking for this by its model name, but that’s almost beside the point. Laptops with 3D capabilities are slowly on the rise and Acer wants to strike the pan while it’s still hot.
With the Acer AS5745DG-A54E/L, you get a 15.6-inch display, 2.53GHz Core i5-460M processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M GPU, NVIDIA 3D VISION at 120Hz, 4GB RAM, 64GB HDD, HDMI, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and a 1.3 megapixel camera. The 3D VISION glasses are included in the box.
No American pricing (or availability, for that matter) was revealed, but Acer did mention that the Japanese launch would be happening on December 3rd with a sticker of under 100,000 yen. That works out to about US$1,200. If you gotta game in three-dimensions, this could be your ticket. [BGR]
