It looks like the sexy Acer Aspire V3 is headed for Japan. And it has almost everything you want. A 2.1GHz Ivy Bridge Core i7 is nice, but the screen is just 1366 x 768. Though it does have a Blu-ray player and Dolby Theater v4. That might be a deal-breaker for some, but there’s still a lot to like here.
Besides, not everyone wants 1080p on a small laptop anyway. This 15.6-inch laptop also sports HD 4000 graphics for your gaming needs, a 750GB HDD, and up to 8GB of RAM.
The V3 will hit Japanese shelves on April 29th for about $1,100. There is also a 17-inch version and that one will do 1080p and if that doesn’t suit you there are also cheaper Core i5 variants coming our way at some point.
