The Acer Aspire (Model: AS5252-V333) laptop features an AMD V-Series processor, a 15.6″ display and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.
This laptop is powered by the AMD V-Series (model v140) processor. This is a single-core, 64-bit processor running at 2.3GHz. It has 512KB of L2 cache and was built using a 45nm process. This chip has 25W profile. This system comes with 2GB of DDR3 system memory. It can be expanded to 8GB.
The display is a 15.6″ WXGA LCD high-definition widescreen display with a resolution of 1366×768. That resolution gives you a 16:9 aspect ratio and native support for 720p. The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card. This has 256MB of dedicated memory and can support up to 1917MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory. Shared memory slows your system down during graphically intensive processes like games.
For storage you get a smallish 250GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM. This is a small drive, but what you’d expect in a cheap laptop. The optical drive supports multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support. If you need a little extra storage, or want to load pictures from your digital camera you can use the 2-in-1 digital media reader that supports Secure Digital (SD) and MultiMediaCard (MMC) formats. Make sure your device uses these cards before grabbing this laptop.
For networking you get a 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN adapter accessible through the RJ-45 port. Nice to see Gigabit support on a low-end laptop like this. For wireless you get a built-in 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN adapter, so you can connect to just about any Wi-Fi network.
External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA port for connecting an external monitor, 1 HDMI port with HDCP support for connecting to your HDTV, 1 headphone jack and 1 microphone-in jack. This laptop comes with a 1.3MP high definition webcam with microphone which makes it easy to do some video chatting.
This system comes installed with Microsoft 7 Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit. Other software includes Adobe Reader, Cyberlink PowerDVD, Windows Live Essentials and more. 60-day trial version of Microsoft Office and Microsoft Office Starter 2010 (product key card required for activation; sold separately) included.
The laptop measures 10″x15″x1.3″ and weighs 5.7 pounds. The 4 cell lithium ion battery pack can provide up to 3 hours and 24 minutes of unplugged power.
