Acer Aspire 756

Slim, light and with optimal performance and battery life, the Aspire One 756 is the perfect travel companion to let you enjoy fantastic entertainment and be productive whenever and wherever you want.

Just about 1 inch thick, it weighs about 1.40 kg and with a compact form factor (29.5 cm or 11.6 inch), it’s slim and light enough to be carried around at all times.  Available in four colours – Dewdrop Silver, Ladybug Red, Ash Black, Feather Blue – this netbook looks just as great as it works. The smooth surface makes this netbook comfortable to carry, while the rounded design brings a fresh personality to this netbook series.

The full-size Acer chiclet keyboard with wide keys enhances typing comfort and provides greater tactile feedback, requiring less effort and improving productivity.

The Aspire One 756 comes with a choice of Intel Celeron processor and Intel Pentium processor, Mobile Intel HM70 Express Chipset, and Intel HD Graphics with 128 MB of dedicated system memory, for a brilliant combination of great performance, low-power enhancements, multitasking for everyday computing, and enthralling visuals with superb colour and motion.

Connectivity-wise the Aspire One 756 is equipped with Wi-Fi network connection, supporting Acer SignalUp antenna technology for enhanced transmission and reception, optional Bluetooth 4.0 plus Fast Ethernet LAN: a complete set of connectivity options to keep you in touch with everyone you care about.

Use the built-in Acer HD CrystalEye webcam and digital microphone to chat live, capture photos or video conference. The card reader makes it easier to share your favourite pictures.

On the high brightness Acer CineCrystal LED backlit panel with 1366×768 HD resolution and 16:9 aspect ratio you will be able to fully appreciate the superior quality of high definition content. And, if you want to enjoy your favourite movies or games on a big screen, an HDMI™ port provides convenient connection to the latest high-definition systems via a single cable link.

What’s more, thanks to low energy consumption components, the Aspire One 756 can extend your wireless freedom and digital fun with up to 4.2 hours of battery life.

Powerful, light and compact the Aspire One 756 is the right tool for efficient multitasking and smooth communication at home or away.
