Acer has launched two widescreen HD touchscreen desktop PCs, the AZ5 and AZ3 series. Acer AZ3 Series feature 21.5 inch HD screen while AZ5 is equipped with 23-inch HD screen. AZ3 Series is the more compact of the two. Both are loaded with 64-bit Windows Home Premium operating system. A one-year warranty gives users the peace of mind they need once they buy one of these Acer models.
For useful connectivity both Acer desktops come with 2 x USB 3.0 ports at the side, while the 4x USB 2.0 ports are stacked at the rear of the cabinet. For file transfer from other digital devices you have the digital multi-in-one media card reader. A wireless mouse and keyboard are also offered. The desktop PCs have wireless 802.11b/g/n connectivity.
Acer AZ5 Series is powered by a Core i3-2120 Intel processor. The headline here is the hyper-threading technology which the processor is equipped with that enables users to carry out multiple applications at the same time. This seems just the thing for heavy duty computing. AZ5 Series is equipped with 4GB DDR3 RAM.
The other innovation here is the 1TB hard drive with space for content storage and optical drive to back up data. Home entertainment for your family is ensured by the audio from Dolby Home Theater and the 2.5W in-built stereo speakers. Two models in the AZ5 series come with the 16:9 full HD 23-inch widescreen with multi-touch navigation and the aforementioned touch-screen convenience.
More technology is on hand with these Acer laptops, such as TouchPortal, a touch control technology developed by Acer that enables effective synchronization of your PC and Internet with access to social networking, music, photos and information all with a single touch. Not only that, the fingertip control enables you to manage photos by sharing, saving or cropping them and also switch between various applications. The Acer Browser Magnifier feature saves your preferences for a more facile Internet browsing experience while also expanding reading areas.
One can’t complete the description without mentioning Acer Clear.fi; a technology that enables a Clear.fi-enabled device you may have in your home to play, share, and store or manage media by automatically connecting all Acer devices situated in the network. The media files are then organized by type with users only having to browse the categories and then drag and drop to any connected devices or PCs to play them. Acer offers free download of the Clear.fi application for any DLNA-compliant device.
Both Acer AZ3 and AZ5 laptops are well designed aesthetically with a 1.3-megapixel web camera and microphone as well as a back stand that can be adjusted to place the monitor in the most compatible position. Prices for Acer AZ3 and AZ5 models will hover around Rs 35, 000.
