The Acer Movie Laptop

Acer has put itself into the desktop / laptop debate. The focus for Acer is the home entertainment demographic. The new product may be termed a ‘movie laptop’:

“…The top model of the new “Gemstone blue” line of laptops has a screen with the same resolution as an a top-of-the-line HDTV, at 1,920 pixels by 1,080 pixels, and will have six speakers, including a subwoofer, for so-called “5.1” surround sound.

The computer will go sale next month in the U.S. for $1,999…”

With six speakers, a wide screen and other features, the weight may not be something that one would want to carry about every day. This is another move on Acer’s part (and Gateway) to be identified with high end products.
