The device has dimensions of 381.6 x 253 x 33.2 mm and weighs about 2.6kg. I am happy with its design and dimensions but I do not like its weight. Anyways, it is not too heavy.

A new technology, CineCrystal is used in the display which ensures high-performance display functioning. The screen resolution of display is 1366 x 768 Pixels.

Platform & Processor of Acer Aspire E1-531 laptop:

When I purchased the product, the platform was Linux but I just changed it to Windows 7 Professional as I was unfamiliar with the Linux operating system.

It also uses Graphics processor Intel HD Graphics and has a dedicated graphics memory capacity of 128MB. These all features help me in playing HD games. The higher version of the Intel processors like i3, i5, i7 are better than the PDC (Pentium Dual Core). At this price range, the PDC processor is much better. This laptop is the best one that suits me. Using this laptop, I haven't experienced any lag or disturbance till yet.

The HD sound effects enhance the HD film-watching experience.
