Yesterday Acer announced a refresh on the industrial design of their Aspire and TravelMate notebook ranges. The new ID is more than just a style facelift, and they used the opportunity to announce their exclusive partnership with Dolby to provide customers with the world's first Dolby Home Theater and Dolby Digital Live virtual surround sound mobiles.
Expect a full review when we can get our sweaty little hands on one of the new models. Could true mobile entertainment finally be here? Here's hoping the soulless tinny speakers we've come to accept become a thing of the past.
Give the people what they want! Acer is calling it a 'light grey ceramic-like interior surface' - looks like beige is slowing becoming fashionable again!
The cover has a shiny black finish and uses the latest in 3D holographic projection. Why Acer puts so much work into showing off their logo, we don't know, but they reckon users will go bananas for it.
Acer is making a very conscious effort to keep the I/O ports off the back of their notebooks, stopping the awkwardness of having to fumble around back there like a teenager and their date on school formal night.
