Laptop Buyers Guide  

Manufacturer's Description

Can’t decide between a tablet and a laptop? Get the best of both worlds with the Acer Aspire P3-171 11.6” Touchscreen Convertible Ultrabook.

Built for touch

Optimised for touch, Windows 8 puts your favourite apps and programmes at your fingertips.

Simply touch a programme tile to open it and move around using taps, swipes and pinches. It only takes a moment to pick up and is already second nature if you own a smartphone.

The home screen is built around Live Tiles, programme icons that display real time information from all your favourite apps including social networking, emails and sports directly on the home screen. You don’t even have to open the programme to receive important info and notifications.

Windows 8 is Cloud ready, letting you choose to back up your information online. Not only is this a good idea for preserving important files, photos and folders, it allows you to access them from any online Windows 8 device. Simply log in using an email address to access all your documents and information, organised just how you left it.

Convertible convenience

You needn’t choose between the typing ability of a laptop and the portability of a tablet with the Aspire P3. Capable of easily switching between both, it offers the benefits of both by simply clipping on or off the sturdy combined keyboard and case.

Laptop processing

The Aspire P3 is powered by an Intel® Core™ i3-3229Y processor and is perfect for zipping through everyday tasks such as word processing, web browsing and watching films on the move. With better processing ability than a normal tablet, it puts the usability of a full-sized laptop in the palm of your hand and when combined with Windows 8, lets you access your entire digital world without the usual restrictions of a tablet OS.

The i3-3229Y is not only designed to provide quick processing but is built to be efficient as well. This allows the Aspire P3 to be used for longer between charges and remain cool during use, giving you a more comfortable, enjoyable computing experience regardless of task.

Unlike a dedicated tablet, the Aspire P3 is capable of true multi-tasking thanks to 4 GB of DDR3 RAM. So whether you need multiple Office documents open at once or simply love listening to music while you browse the web, you won’t be restricted at all.

Serious storage

Storage is provided by 120 GB solid state drive (SSD). Accessing information far quicker than a normal hard drive, an SSD helps the Aspire P3 deliver a smooth and instant computing experience.

Backing up your important documents is simple too thanks to the USB 3.0 port. Capable of greatly improved transfer speeds over USB 2.0, it makes short work of backing up even the biggest files.

Ultrabook efficiency

Acer’s Instant On technology provides rapid access to your computer as soon as you need it while integrated WiFi connects to your preferred wireless network as soon as you log in, letting you get online and into your digital world without delay.

Integrated Bluetooth connectivity makes syncing with compatible accessories simple. From speakers and headphones to smartphones and mice, a cable-free connection is within easy reach.

Sharing videos and pictures is simple too thanks to the micro HDMI port. Simply connect a HDMI* cable between the Ultrabook and a TV, monitor or projector to view your media in full HD on a bigger screen. Your media will sound as good as it looks thanks to the Dolby Home Theatre audio technology.

Tap, touch and type your way around your digital world with the incredibly versatile Acer Aspire P3-171 11.6” Touchscreen Convertible Ultrabook™.
