Acer Philippines has just launched something that will tickle your geeky hearts, and it comes in a metallic, ala-beauty queen package! Here's the V5, a Windows 8 ultrathin notebook made with gorgeous looks and superb gaming in mind. Pangalan pa lang, Astig na!
As we've said, this babe's built for games, and its hardware is evidence of this. We're talking about a second-generation quad-core AMD A8 processor (with 4GB RAM) that's partnered with AMD Radeon HD 7600G and 7650M Dual Graphics. This combo means a fast HD gaming experience without the annoying lags and slow-downs the average notebooks experience. And if you want to take things to a whole new level, you could make use of the V5's ability to support up to four displays at any one time. Nice!
For multimedia enthusiasts, the V5 has a feature called the HD Media Accelerator, which basically makes viewing HD videos on its 15.6-inch display and sharing content faster and easier. And if you're the type of techie who frequenly DLs stuff off the net, there's the Quick Stream option. According to Acer, this smoothens your downloads, resulting in faster times. Wireless connectivity is also a given here via Bluetooth and Wi-Fi, while standard ports like USB 2.0 and 3.0, HDMI, VGA, and Ethernet are part of the mix, too.
All that comes in a package of just 23mm thick and 2.3kg in weight!
And the best part? It's just P30,900, far cheaper than other gaming-minded laptops in the market. Goodbye Christmas bonus!
