Acer Aspire Ethos 8943G and 5943G HD Notebooks Announced

Acer have introduced a new line of notebook computers called the Acer Aspire Ethos series. The new series of netbooks are designed to look good as well as have high performance chips inside letting them run good too.

The notebooks are called the Acer Aspire Ethos 8943G and the Aspire Ethos 5943G which come with a range of processors which includes the Intel Core i5 and i7 range of processors. The Acer 8943G is the higher end of the models (and the larger) and features an 18 inch screen with a full HD resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels. The smaller 5943G model has a 15.6 inch display with a resolution of 1366 x 786 pixels.

Powering the graphics in each Ethos notebook are ATI Mobility Radeon HD5000 graphics chips. Other features on the notebook computers include Dolby Home Theatre surround support which offers a 5.1 output. As well as utilising Dolby surround on external speakers the notebooks also have five speakers built in allowing for each channel to be replicated correctly.

The Acer Aspire Notebooks also have plenty of storage which reaches a capacity of 1.28TB by combining two 640GB hard drives in each notebook.

There is plenty of connectivity too which allows for a gigabit Ethernet connect to transfer at high speeds as well as the obvious wireless networking built in. Bluetooth 2.1 is also built in. Outputs/Inputs on the Acer notebooks includes eSATA, USB, FireWIre, HDMI and VGA. For security there’s a fingerprint reader for biometric protection. A webcam can also be found in the device too.

Prices are unknown at the moment although judging by the specs listed above they are certainly not going to come in under $1000, if not under $2000 either.
