CeBIT 2008 - Previewing The Trends

Acer - Multimedia Notebooks With Sleek Gemstone Design

At CeBIT, Acer will be showing notebooks ranging from the ultraportable to 15.4" to 17" widescreen models. All of these notebooks use the new, innovative and sleek gemstone design with its rounded edges, which is reminiscent of the fine shape of natural gems that exude both beauty and robustness. All of Acers multimedia notebooks are equipped with Dolby-certified audio systems. Select models also come with Blu-ray drive option - although at this point it's not clear yet, which ones.

Formula 1 fans will also be glad to hear that Acer will be introducing the newest model of the Ferrari 1100 series. A dual-core AMD Turion 64 resides inside the innovative casing, which is made of carbon fiber, just like the red Formula 1 racer that lends it its name. Other features include an integrated Radeon X1250 graphics chip with up to 960 MB of HyperMemory, a 12.1" WXGA CrystalBrite (read, glossy) display and a hard drive with up to 250 GB of storage capacity. According to Acer, the unit will weigh less than 2 kg including the DVD drive.
