Acer ultrabook with 1TB drive – now we’re talking

Acer Ultrabook with 1TB driveHold onto your ultrabook socks – today Acer has just introduced what could be a killer new powerful ultrabook – the V7-482PG-9884. With Intel’s 4th generation Intel Core processsor (Haswell) this 14″ Acer ultrabook looks to be a winner.

In cool steel color with a 14″ touch screen, this ultrabook boasts a full HD 1920×1080 resolution LED-backlit TFT LCD screen with 10-finger multi-touch support. There’s also a HD webcam built in that shoots 1280×720. The unit weighs in at 4.41 pounds. Overall the unit measures 13.39″ x 9.45″ x .9″.

The 4th genereation Intel Core i7-4500U processor features 4MB L3 cache, 1.80 GHz with Turbo Boost up to 3.00 GHz. The V7-482PG-9884 comes standard with 12GB of RAM and a 1 TB harddrive.

Available ports include:

  • 1 HDMI out with HDCP support.
  • Headphone/speaker jack supporting 3.5 mm headset with built in microphone for Acer smart handhelds
  • 1 Acer Converter Port (uses optional – not included – dongle which offers 1 x VGA, 1 x RJ-45 & 1 x USB 2.0)
  • Collapsable RJ-45 port supporting 10/100/1000 Mbps ethernet connection 2 x USB 2.0 ports 1 x USB 3.0 port with power-off charging

The keyboard is backlit and the battery is a 4 cell LithiumIon unit with 3,560mAh rating.

Audio features optimized Dolby Home Theatre v4 audio enhancement with two built-in stereo speakers and dual built-in microphones.

For wireless communications – you’ll have 802.11a/g/n. Absent from the pre-release specs are any mention of Bluetooth, but I’d have to believe that’s included.

Acer is also debuting two other laptops today – the S7-39206411 ultrabook (a 13.3″ model) and the V3-772G-9402 (17″ model for gaming). Check out more details at www.acer.com.
