The Basics

  • Processor: The Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor has a 2.0 GHz processor speed, fast 800 MHz front-side bus (FSB), and 2 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-side bus will deliver better overall performance.)

    With two computational execution cores in a single processor, it provides greater system response when running multi-threaded applications simultaneously with no significant increase in power consumption. It's optimized for multitasking and is ready to support the Microsoft Windows Vista operating system. It can simultaneously run multiple demanding applications--such as graphics-intensive games or serious number-crunching business productivity applications--while downloading music or running virus-scanning security programs in the background. Some of the advanced Intel innovations of the Core 2 Duo processor include:

    • Smart Memory Access: Improves system performance by hiding memory latency, thus optimizing the use of available computer data bandwidth to provide data to the processor when and where it is needed.
    • Advanced Digital Media Boost: Effectively doubles the execution speed for instructions used widely in multimedia and graphics applications.
    • Dynamic Power Coordination: Coordinates Enhanced Intel SpeedStep Technology and idle power-management state (C-states) transitions independently per core to help save power.
    • Deeper Sleep with Dynamic Cache Sizing: Saves power by flushing cache data to system memory during periods of inactivity to lower CPU voltage.

  • Hard Drive: The generous 250 GB Serial ATA hard drive (5400 RPM) provides more than enough capacity for storing a large audio and video library, as well as extra space required for video editing. This SATA hard drive also quickens the pace with a higher speed transfer of data--akin to Firewire and USB 2.0.

  • Memory: The 4 GB of installed RAM (PC2-5300, 2 x 2 GB) maximizes the capacity for this notebook,. It also offers a fast 667 MHz speed.

  • DVD/CD Drive: The dual-layer DVD drive is compatible with a wide range of formats, including both DVD+RW and DVD-RW discs, CD-RW discs, and dual-layer (DL) DVD+/-R discs, which can hold up to 8.5 GB of data--great for backing up your MP3 collection or your most important documents. It features the following speeds: 4x for DVD+R DL, 4x for DVD-R DL, 8x for both single layer DVDí└R, 8x for single layer DVD+RW, 6x for single layer DVD-RW, 5x for DVD-RAM, and 24x/16x for CD-R/RW. It reads DVD-ROM discs at 8x and CD-ROMs at 24x.

  • Keyboard & Mouse: This notebook has a 105-key keyboard (12 function, four cursor, two Microsoft Windows keys; independent US dollar and Euro sign keys ), inverted T cursor layout, standard numeric keypad, hotkey controls, 2.5mm minimum key travel, and international language support. The touchpad has multi-gesture technology, including circular-motion scrolling and pinch-action zoom.
Screen, Video & Audio
The wide-aspect 15.6-inch Acer CineCrystal Full HD display provides a true cinematic view with 16:9 aspect ratio for HDTV and the latest Blu-ray Disc format. The 1366 x 768 resolution captivates with its precision and ensures flawless, pixel-for-pixel reproductions of entertainment created in the 720p high-def format. An 8 ms high-def response time diminishes ghosting in games with finely rendered, complex graphics. Acer GridVista software simultaneously shows up to eight windows on dual displays and automatically resizes open application windows to fit the screen for fantastic multitasking.

Video is powered by the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X4500MHD, which uses shared video memory (up to 1759 MB allocated from the system memory) and provides Windows Vista Aero interface support and enhanced 3D graphics performance--delivering over 2x scores on 3DMark 06. Intel Clear Video Technology provides outstanding video playback with sharper image quality, increased clarity, and customizable color controls. It also enables enhanced visual quality of interlaced content on progressive displays. This notebook also includes an integrated audio card with Microsoft DirectSound compatibility and two Acer 3DSonic stereo speakers.

Networking, Connectivity & Expansion
Be ready for the next platform in wireless connectivity with the integrated quad-mode Wi-Fi chip. Based on the draft 802.11n Wi-Fi specification, it offers up to five times the performance and twice the wireless range as existing 802.11g wireless. It's also backward compatible with 802.11b/g networks (commonly found in home routers and wi-fi hotspots) as well as 802.11a networks (which has a higher throughput, but more limited range--great for closed office environments).

It also includes a next-generation ExpressCard 54/34 card slot (replacing the PCMCIA slot), which lets you take advantage of thinner, faster, and lighter expansion cards for even more advanced wireless, networking, storage, and security features. It comes with the following external connectors:

  • 3 USB 2.0 ports for connecting a wide range of peripherals--from digital cameras to MP3 players
  • 1 ExpressCard/54 slot (compatible with ExpressCard/34 media)
  • Analog video output: 1 VGA
  • 5-in-1 memory card reader, compatible with Secure Digital (SD), MMC, Memory Stick, Memory Stick PRO, and XD Picture Card
  • 1 headphone jack, 1 microphone jack
  • 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet
  • 56K modem (V.92)

Operating System
The 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium (with SP1) is the operating system for users with advanced computer needs, and it includes all of the Windows Media Center capabilities for turning your PC into an all-in-one home entertainment center for watching DVD movies and accessing your digital audio library. You can also use Windows Media Center to record and watch your favorite TV shows (even HDTV) and to access new kinds of online entertainment content. Computers that include Windows Vista Home Premium and an auxiliary Windows SideShow display will also allow you to access key data even when your computer is off. It is also easier than ever to share files between other PCs in your household and to manage your laptop computer settings to more securely connect via Wi-Fi.

Customer Reviews:

  • Great Computer
    I have had my computer for about three months and use it everyday. I manage two web sites, create and edit movies, manage my finances, surf the internet, and much more. This computer has met all my expectations and more. It has plenty of RAM memory and is easy to use. However, some software will not work properly with the 64 bit version of Windows Vista. I personally do not like the mouse pad and purchased a bluetooth mouse to use with my computer. The hard drive could be a little bigger for me, but over all I love my computer and would recommend it in a heart beat. My mother bought one after I did and she loves hers. We are able to video conference and that is a joy. I did some research on Acer before purchasing my computer and found it to be a good company. I have not had any issues so far with my computer. Don't be afraid to purchase this computer for your needs, I believe you will be pleased, just as I am. ...more info
  • Great Notebook!
    I love my new Acer! It's convenient to use.. I just had to turn off my pinch pointer or something like that.. that automatically zooms the screen on the touch pad.. that was a bit annoying.. so when i turned it off.. all was good :)

    I would give it a 5 star but the laptop is a bit heavy :(...more info
  • Beware of Acer customer support
    Acer makes fine products, but their customer support leaves a lot to be desired. I had a problem with a notebook computer overheating, for which I had an extended in-home service warranty, and it was like pulling teeth to get help. First, they refused to honor the in-home service and insisted I ship the unit. I shipped it to them, but then when I continued to have problems they stonewalled me, made false claims about what I had purchased, and sent me boilerplate responses (thank you Sujith_GWSI356) that were completely unhelpful. To fix the problems caused by the hardware failure they told me to make additional purchases. I will never buy another Acer product....more info
  • Dr. Jekyl, Mr. Useless
    This is a glorified netbook masquerading as a decent gaming laptop. With the same money you could waste on an Acer product, you would be much better served investing in something reasonable, such as a HP small business platform (if a netbook is what you are looking for). The graphics card is nonexistent, Windows Vista is a waste of time, and the hardware is sub-par with a software interface to match.

    The good that I can speak of this purchasing experience pertains exclusively to's return policy. Their deductions were fair, and the money was reimbursed in a timely fashion....more info
  • Excellent Choice
    I have had my computer now for three weeks and am very pleased with it. It is fast, convenient and the numeric keypad is really nice to have. The picture is sharp, the colors are bright and the screen surprisingly large. It is a sharp looking computer, and the dark blue case seems to attract a lot of attention at the library.
    On the negative side, an additional USB port would be nice- there are three only, and they are located along with other ports on the side of the computer- the back would have been easier and less messy.
    The psitioning of the number pad makes using the keypad a little ackward. A smaller number pad would have served just as well and would have eliminated this problem. Otherwise though, its been great so far.

  • Gift
    This laptop was purchased as a gift. The recipient is very pleased with it. ...more info
  • Hope it doesn't crash.
    I bought one of these for gaming and coding, which crashed before I was even able to complete the online registration. After that, each attempt to restart the computer resulted in it powering itself off before booting. I was more than willing to allow for the possibility that it was just a fluke and requested a replacement which Amazon helped me with in a friendly, time efficient manner. After having the new machine for less than 3 days, it pulled the same stunt. I hit the power button, heard the fan start and the drive spin for just a second before the power indicator went off. This made me rather sad because it really is an attractive unit and the specs suggest a lot of potential, but ultimately I found this machine best. ...more info
