The new thin and light 11.6-inch notebooks combine impressive computing power with up to 1 TB of storage space, Windows 8.1 tools for great productivity and entertainment, and a choice of color options to display users' individual flair.
Stylish, smart and quiet by design
The distinctive FlowCurve design creates a unique aesthetic look and feel, making the Acer Aspire V 11 (touch) and E 11 both stylish and functional. This elegant design features an external rear curve that continues in the interior, thereby creating a visual flow that's unique and stands out in a crowd. The cover with hairline brush pattern tops off the design with an attractive and smooth finish. Users can display their personality with a choice of colors(¹): Cool Silver, Rhodonite Pink, Tiger's Eye Brown, and Quartz Blue.
Designed with fan-less technology and cool-running processing, the notebooks stay comfortably cool to the touch and whisper-quiet.
Light yet sizeable for productivity on the go
Packing all the speed and storage features for everyday computing in a slim and light design, the notebooks measure 21.2 mm thin(²) and weigh 1.29 kg (2.84 lbs.)(²) to fit easily in a bag to take along anywhere. Up to 1 TB of hard drive provides ample space for storing movies, music and photos.
Infotainment features comparable with larger notebooks
Intel® Pentium® Quad Core and Intel® Celeron® CPUs provide plenty of power for doing work in the office, watching movies and chatting with family and friends around the world. Up to 8 GB memory helps multiple applications run smoothly and fast, while the built-in high-performance 10/100/1000 Gigabit LAN port provides fast internet speed for smooth web browsing and transfer rates of up to 10 times faster3 than ordinary LAN.
The Acer Aspire V 11 (touch) and E 11 notebooks with 1366 x 768 pixel resolution HD display feature a full-sized keyboard that's typically offered with larger 13-inch notebooks for a comfortable typing and navigation experience. They are equipped with the Precision Touchpad that supports Windows 8.1 TouchPad gestures, reducing un-intended motions on the touchpad and improving pinch-to-zoom, smoother scrolling and screen navigation.
Two optimized speakers provide powerful, more realistic and lifelike audio quality similar to that of larger size notebooks, allowing users to pump up the sound.
All the essential ports, including USB 3.0 and HDMI®, are thoughtfully placed on the rear of the notebook to keep the workspace clear of cables, while frequently-used I/O connectors like audio jack, USB ports, and the SD card slot are placed on the left side for easy access.
The integrated AcerCloud allows access to remotely stored photos, music, videos and documents via the Internet. Users simply click the icon - Acer Photo, Acer Docs, Acer Media, Acer Remote Files - and get access to their remote files anywhere.
