Acer Gemstone pictures leaked online

| Posted: May 5, 2007 6:35 am

A whole array of pictures of Acers upcoming Gemstone notebook has made its way onto the Google online picture service. This new notebook is meant to be unveiled tomorrow at some stage, but so far no specifications have made their way onto the web. However, judging from the pictures, it looks like it's going to be a high-end model, something for those that want a top of the range notebook from Acer, but that doesn't fancy the Ferrari branding. Judging by the labelling of the pictures, the model name should be Aspire 7720.

 

 

But a picture can tell a thousand words and by looking at some of the pictures it's not hard to at least figure out some of the specifications. The Gemstone features both D-Sub and DVI for external monitors, it has built in Ethernet and modem, at least four USB ports, a mini FireWire connector, TV-out, a volume control wheel, a SD/MMC/MS/xD card reader and an Express Card slot. There are also three audio connectors on the front. It might even have video input, as there are two ViVo style connectors, one on each side of the chassis. On top of this it might have support for a TV tuner, as there's a little connector towards the rear right hand side corner that looks like it could possibly accommodate an aerial connector. The optical drive supports HD-DVD, but judging from the logo, it's the ROM flavour only. Interestingly there is also what looks like an updated version of the Acer Bluetooth VoIP handset on one of the pictures. It should also have built in WiFi, but it's hard to say if it'll support the new 802.11n standard or not.

 

Judging from the size of the keyboard, the Gemstone has at least a 17-inch display, as the numerical keypad gives it away, so if you were hoping for an ultra portable machine, this one isn't for you. As for the internal hardware specs, well, we're just going to have to wait another day. You can find the pictures here
