Both notebooks are powered by Intel's Core i3, i5 and i7 processors, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5000-series graphics, and up to 4GB of DDR3 RAM. The 5943G can be equipped with 160GB to 640GB of storage, and the 8943G as room for a second hard drive. The systems can also be purchased with a Blu-ray drive, and connectivity is well covered.
Other mentioned features include 2.1 and 5.1 speaker systems, an eight-cell battery, fingerprint security, a multi-gesture touchpad, a webcam, a DVB-T TV tuner, and more. Acer hasn't mentioned pricing or availability, but I can see both models being popular if folks don't have to take out a second mortgage.
