A complete 3D entertainment center, the AS5745DG features Acer Arcade™ Deluxe to convert 2D to 3D images with a single click. Customers can enjoy the latest 3D movies with Dolby® Home Theater® v3 surround sound or engage in action-packed gaming, with many PC games easily transformed into stereoscopic 3D right out of the box. Customers can also use the notebook’s HDMI port to connect to HD displays and TVs to create cinema-quality entertainment in the living room.

Beyond 3D enjoyment, the Aspire 5745DG provides multi-purpose computing performance along with plenty of ways to access, store, share and enjoy their digital files and applications. The spacious 500GB hard drive can store a vast library of music, video, photos, spreadsheets, documents and email. An integrated multi-in-one media reader enables a convenient connection to peripherals and electronic devices, while the four USB 2.0 ports provide ample connections to peripherals and consumer electronics.

The Acer Crystal Eye 1.3 megapixel HD webcam enables high-quality video chats and VoIP with friends, family and work associates.

In addition to the 3D model, the Aspire AS5742G, AS5745 and AS7745 lines offer an attractive range of features including NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology, Blu-ray drives and quad-core processing on select models.

For serious multitaskers, content creators or multimedia enthusiasts, the Aspire AS5742G features NVIDIA’s Optimus™ technology, a hybrid graphics engine which intelligently optimizes a notebook to provide outstanding graphics performance, all while extending battery life for longer enjoyment.
