Taiwanese manufacturer Acer has unveiled yet another notebook whose main noteworthy point appears to be Intel's nascent Wireless Display Technology.

The latter allows users to wirelessly connect their devices to Wi-Di enabled display

The Aspire 5755, as it is known, is available in black, brown, blue and red and is powered by Intel's Sandy Bridge Core processors, with 8GB DDR3 memory, 1TB onboard storage (but apparently no solid state option), a Blu-ray player, GbE, a card reader, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0, a HDMI output and a chiclet keyboard.

Although Acer has not confirmed the screen size, we suspect that it will have a 15.4-inch LED display with a 1366x768 pixels resolution.

No details as to what operating system will power the Aspire 5755 or what graphics solutions it will come with. However, given that the suggested retail price of the laptop is £899, we suspect that it will have a tough time against the likes of Dell, Lenovo or even Acer's own range.
