Acer sub-brand Gateway introduced two new NV-series notebooks in Japan. The two new models are the NV5 with a 15.6-inch display and the NV7 with a 17.3-inch display.
The two share the same 15.6-inch display with a 1366×768 resolution, 4GB of RAM and a 640GB hard drive preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium.
The NV59C09u , the first model in the NV line to be updated, runs on an Intel Core i3-330M, which has a clock speed of 2.13 GHz. This chip is backed up by 4GB of RAM and, as users well know, has its own integrated graphics. The configuration also includes an HDD with 320GB of storage space, a 4x Blu-ray/DVD combo drive, a multi-gesture touchpad, a webcam, Gigabit Ethernet, 802.11 b/g/n WiFi and a 15.6-inch LCD screen with a maximum resolution of 1366 x 768.
The NV7 has largely similar components. Also, depending on consumer preference, the CPU can be replaced with a Core i5 part, an AMD Turion or an AMD Athlon.
The two new models begin shipping in Japan on April 23rd, priced at the equivalents of between $860 and $970.
