Acer’s quad core notebook, AS5560-Sb613, is on sale for just 530 dollars. It features the recently released AMD A8 3500M processor, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 500GB hard disk and a decent 15.6 inch display. This AMD APU (accelerated processing unit) also comes integrated with an ATi Radeon HD 6620 GPU with 512MB VRAM.
Other specs include DVD writer, 1.3 mega pixel webcam, card reader, 1x HDMI, 3x USB 2.0 ports, dedicated numeric keypad. Battery life is stated to be around 4 hours with its 6 cell Lithium ion battery.
The only thing not to like about it is its resolution – 1366 x 768 and believe us, it is the only problem we have with the Acer notebooks and netbooks. If that does not bothers you, it is an amazing notebook for a casual business and student user.
The same processor is also being used in Samsung 300V5 notebook.
