Acer is soon going to launch a completely revamped lineup of its Aspire series. The new Acer Aspire series will sport a minimalist metallic look. Along with the design changes, Acer has also updated the hardware of the laptop. Even in its thinner avatar, the Aspire 8943G still packs in a 5.1 channel speaker system. The updated line-up of Aspire notebooks now feature a Core i3, Core i5 or Core i7 processor depending on the model.
The graphics sub-system of the laptop has also got a much needed boost in the form of ATI HD 5000 Mobility series. Up to a maximum of 4Gb DDR3 RAM can be installed on both the notebooks. A Blu-Ray drive is optional for Aspire 5943G or 8943G notebooks. The keyboard of the notebooks have an edge-to-edge layout. Both the notebooks feature a LED display, which are 3D capable. The usual connectivity options like Bluetooth, b/g/n Wi-Fi support, Inbuilt card reader all are duly covered. Acer 5643G can hold a single hard disk of a maximum capacity of 640Gb, while the Aspire 8943G can hold 2 hard disks of a maximum capacity of 640Gb each. The battery capacity of both the notebooks is a disappointing 4800 mAh. Windows 7 is the default OS in both the notebooks.
Acer did not mention the shipping dates or the pricing of the laptop.
