If you're checking out the new "Porsche designed" Acer Aspire
5520 and thinking it looks a little bit familiar -- take heart -- you've seen this guy before, when it was called the Gemstone
. Apparently, Acer has axed the Gemstone's (AKA AS5920
) Intel processor, dropped in an AMD Turion 64 X2 TL-58 (at 1.8GHz), and badged this baby up with a new number sequence. The system still rocks Vista (of course), features a 15.4-inch display, integrated NVIDIA GeForce 7000M graphics chipset, 1GB of RAM, a 120GB hard drive, 802.11b/g, Bluetooth, and an ExpressCard 54 slot. Although it seems like the 5520 has been kicking around for a bit, there's no word on price or availability (especially for the States).
