Acer's U.K. operations today announced the Aspire 5755 notebook built for all around performance, including multimedia and gaming chores. It sports a Sandy Bridge foundation, and because "design is now a big part of the equation" when talking about computers, Acer dressed its newest notebook up with a glossy cover featuring "an attractive stripy pattern modulated in several color options," including brown, black, red, and blue.
Sandy Bridge processor options run the gamut from a Core i3 2310M processor up to a Core i7 2820QM, with several CPUs in between. The Aspire 5755 supports up to 8GB of DDR3 memory, has a 15.6-inch HD (1366x768) LED-backlit display, Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics with Optimus technology, up to a 1TB hard drive, multi-card reader, 8X DVD burner (optional Blu-ray reader), 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, HDMI, optional Intel Wireless Display (WiDi), Dolby Advanced Audio v2, multi-gesture touchpad, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.
The Aspire 5755 is shipping now in the U.K. for around $1,445. No word on when it will land stateside or for how much.
