Acer has just announced a spanking new notebook for the masses, where it comes with a rather tiny display, although it will not break the bank – which is a good thing, of course. The notebook’s name? It is known as the Acer Aspire V5-122, where it will run on the Windows 8 operating system alongside a processor from Intel’s once-mighty but now seemingly vanquished rival, AMD. The AMD Temash processor should be able to get the job done for most of your basic and daily tasks, where it features an 11.6” display at 1366 x 768 resolution, with a starting price point of a mere $450, clearly making this one of the most affordable touchscreen notebooks in the market at the moment if you do not need an “Intel Inside” sticker, of course.
Other hardware specifications in the Acer Aspire V5-122 include a Radeon HD 8280 graphics chipset, 2GB RAM, a 500GB hard drive, WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, VGA, HDMI, USB 3.0, and gigabit Ethernet. The 3-cell battery underneath the hood would bring the entire notebook’s weight to approximately 3.3 pounds, leaving us rather curious as to whether there are any backers for this puppy or not.
