It seems Acer is letting the rubber cool just a bit on its feverish Ferrari releases
, and looking to add another (relatively) run-of-the-mill option to the long standing Aspire
lineup with the 3103 WLCi. While certainly not as potent (or ginormous) as the 20-inch Aspire 9800
, Acer is apparently aiming for the value-conscious crowd with this offering. Sporting a not-exactly-flashy silver and black enclosure, this 64-bit notebook packs a 15.4-inch 1,280 x 800 display, 1.8GHz AMD Sempron 3400+, 512MB of RAM, 5,400RPM 60GB drive, DVD burner, and the ATi Radeon Express 1100 graphics chipset. The conventional array of ports and connectivity options are included as well, such as VGA out, 56k, Ethernet, WiFi, a trio of USB ports, and a 5-in-1 flash card reader, while more savvy add-ons -- Bluetooth and FireWire, for instance -- are (understandably) omitted. The conservatively-styled (and priced) 3103 WLCi should be hitting Japanese streets soon for just under ¥80,000 ($680).
