New Acer Aspire M5 Notebook Features Power and Style for Work and Play
Acer has expanded its M5 Series line of notebook computers with the M5-583P-6428, offered exclusively at Best Buy throughout the United States. The M5-583P-6428 brings new technologies and features to the M5 Series, including “Haswell,” the 4th Generation Intel Core i5 processor, Intel Wireless Display technology (WiDi), a powerful sound system with four speakers, and Acer Purified.Voice, a combination of hardware (dual-array mic) and software (voice recognition and audio processing). A high-def webcam provides high pixel density for video image quality.
The M5-583P-6428 includes 8GB of memory, a 500GB hard drive, and a PowerSmart long-life four-cell Lithium Polymer Battery (3560mAh), providing up to 6.5 hours of battery life. In addition, the PowerSmart battery can go for 1,000 cycles, lasting up to four years, according to the company.
Maximizing the efficiency of using Windows 8, the M5-583P-6428 has a 15.6-inch HD 10-point multitouch display. Less than 1-inch thin, the newest M5 sports a metal chassis with clean modern lines with a “soft touch” finish on the bottom, a brushed hairline finish on its silver aluminum surface, and a backlit keyboard. A high-definition touchscreen display with edge-to-edge glass completes its contemporary look.
Featuring Acer Instant Connect, the M5-583P-6428 connects to the Internet four times faster than notebooks without it, according to the company. The technology remembers previous Wi-Fi spots visited, so when they’re in range again, the M5 instantly connects to the Internet, eliminating connect wait times. In addition, while the M5 is asleep but still in range of a Wi-Fi network, Intel Smart Connect makes sure the PC is constantly updating information. Open applications, such as Facebook and Outlook emails, are continually refreshed and will already be updated when the system is resumed from sleep, according to the company.
The Acer Aspire M5-583P-6428 is available now at Best Buy stores across the U.S. MSRP is $699.99.
