Acer Aspire 4310 and Aspire 4710 Notebook Series launched in India

Acer Aspire Notebooks

Acer India today announced the launch of two new notebooks in the Indian market. The two new arrivals are the Aspire 4310 and Aspire 4710 series. Both the notebooks are part of the design notebooks from Acer and BMW together.

On the occasion, S. Rajendran, GM – Sales and Marketing, Acer India said, “Acer has always been at the forefront in supporting the latest technologies that enhance customer experience. The Acer Aspire 4310 and Aspire 4710 series is part of Acer’s initiative of ‘making mobile computing more affordable’ and a response to the demand for low cost and efficient Notebooks. With the Acer Aspire 4310 and Aspire 4710 series, we have once again broken all barriers without compromising on features, a first in the industry.”

The Aspire 4310 series uses Celeron M 520, while its memory is 512 MB and an 80 GB hard disk drive. Besides, this notebook features LINUX operating system and Combo drive. The Aspire 4310 notebook is available in the market at the price of Rs. 20,999 excluding taxes and carrying case. Acer also offers it with 0.3 Mega-Pixel camera at the price of Rs. 24,499.

Unlike Aspire 4310, the Aspire 4710 series comes with an Intel Core 2 Duo mobile processor T5500. This notebook has the configuration of 1GB RAM, 160 GB hard disk drive and LINUX operating system. Also it sports some additional features such as Bluetooth. Buyers can purchase Aspire 4710 series at Rs. 39,499. Acer has also launched a variant model, the Aspire 4710z that is equipped with Pentium dual core processor T2080, 1GB RAM, inbuilt camera and 160 GB hard disk drive.

All the newly launched notebooks feature Gigabit LAN.

    I am writing this from my aspire 4710 😛

    first off, pretty cheap for this kinda configuration, 41,500/-(inc.VAT)

    >Intel core2 duo(T5500) 1.66GHz, 2 MB L2 cache, 667 MHz FSB
    >14.1″ LCD
    >onboard Intel 950 graphics (128 MB shared)
    >1 GB DDR2 RAM
    >160 GB HDD
    >8x DVD-RW
    >memory card reader
    >inbuilt webcam
    >inbuilt microphone & speakers

    I just had it for last 3 days. so my review wont be that accurate.
    From the outside it looks really cool, all black and metallic acer logo on the back of monitor. It isnt that heavy too.

    The keyboard covering is made of gray plastic, which doesnt look very good with the rest of the color scheme. but its really good when sitting in the dark and typing because the monitor light reflects off the keyboard and gives good visibility.

    the touch pad is really sensitive and will need some getting used to. also there is a nifty scroll function when you tap along the edges of the touch pad.

    in the hardware side, this baby can pull off most of the graphic intensive tasks i put it through. so its a good buy for those who want to do graphics or gaming.

    the battery backup is about 2 hours with the standard battery, so it will give limited mobility away from power sockets.

    but this laptop isnt without its quirks, first problem i encountered was over heating issues. you can forget using it as a ‘lap’ top, it really will put a hole in your pants 😛

    i don’t know if its the processor or the batteries that is causing this, acer is known to have overheating issues with its older models, so i guess thats the case here.

    there isnt any bluetooth drivers available for windows xp in this model as yet. so you will have to upgrade to vista if you want to use that feature.

    also, the speakers are operating at low volume especially when playing videos, but that might be fixable. im just waiting for the service guys to find a solution :(

    overall, this is a value-for-money desktop-replacement laptop for those who want to do some graphic intensive tasks, without losing on mobility too much. i would recommend to buy.

  2. kumaraswamy

    i newly installing windows vista, i want to know the what type of edition to be best, what are the compatible drivers for that, and how to install the empowering technology.

    kindly request you to please forward the answer urgent

  3. Suresh M

    i am planning to buy Acer aspire 4710 (intel core 2 duo T5500). can you please tell me your suggestion about overall performance?

  4. Rob

    I have an Aspire 4310 a real slug with Vista. Unfortunately it’s not available in Australia with the Linux option – can anyone tell me where i might be able to download it? Or even which particular variety of Linux it is?

  5. Shah

    as for kumaraswamy’s question…windows vista home premium will do fine for home use, its about 4.5K
    but if you are a power user and dont want to be limited in the OS functionality side you might wanna go for windows vista ultimate, its about 10K
    the empowering technology software comes in the support cd of the laptop

    suresh m>>>please refer my earlier posts

    rob>>> the 4310 is a scaled down celeron version so it cant run anything more than windows xp, windows vista takes about 460mb of memory to run on average, so you can expect it to be running slow on a laptop with only 512mb of ram.
    the linux they give with the laptop is only of basic funtionality, its more like DOS than linux, it doesnt even have GUI. the first thing any one who buys the laptop has to do it is format it and put a new OS in it.
    the 4710(core2duo t5500, 1gb ram) runs windows vista pretty smoothly.

  6. petunia

    I purchased aspire4710 and installed XP OS. I am not that techy person but I know how to install the operating system. It took me days to find the drivers that are compatible for XP. Right now I still have videoo controlled banged from the device manager. Can someone tell me the right driver for the video card for me to be able to maximize the use of this system. Thanks a lot! :)

  7. Dazza

    I unfortunately just bought an Acer 4710z with 512MB and Vista basic. ($1100.00)
    Its very slow, and unresponsive. Doesn’t like Vista at all! (Even with 1 Gig upgrade? Extra $90.00)
    I went back to the dealer, and bought XP Home. (Another $160.00)
    XP Home runs 100% better but the XP drivers that Acer have, DO NOT WORK!
    I rang acer support. “Acer does not support XP!”
    I asked about restoring Vista so I can get rid of the laptop – “Will cost $200.00”
    I was also informed that warranty was void because of installing XP.
    The laptop itself is mediocre but okay for kids or students, but is unusable with Vista. Unfortunately under XP there is no Wireless, Sound, modem thanks to Acer Support (Ha Ha)
    If you want a laptop for anything but basic internet and word processing, Don’t Buy This one!
    If you want support – buy a HP or Toshiba or anything but …..

  8. Shah

    hey guys, i am back :)

    petunia, you can find the drivers for video controller in acer’s Europe website

    I am assuming that you are having the Aspire 4710 and not the 4710z, please follow these instructions to get the driver


    under the “MS Windows XP”, click on “Drivers and Utilities” drop down menu and select “VGA Intel”, the driver will start downloading in few seconds.

    and as for Dazza’s dilemma, the model you have is 4710z and its a dual core version of aspire 4710 (which is a core2duo), it is meant to run slower with vista, as i have explained earlier with the 4310, running vista in 4710z is hopeless. you can install windows xp and it will give much better performance.
    and as for the drivers, they are available for XP in acer’s Europe website. i am having 4710 and all the drivers have been tested by me for XP. since only the processor and the memory is the only thing that is different between 4710 and 4710z, i suppose all of those drivers will work for you too.

    please don’t forget to leave your comments on whether it worked for you.

    good luck :)

  16. Hugo

    Hi ppl.
    I bought a 4310 (Vista support and installed only) and, although mine has 1GB ram, I still think Vista sucks (7.5 GB operating system is absurd to me). Therefore, I wanted XP on mine and, as some of you, I was involved is this for a week, exactly because Acer doesnt support XP (as most the drivers they have lol) for this model and you can find loads of them different on the net. So here goes what I have done so far (the one thing I miss is bluetooth…yet heh):
    1 – For AHCI, audio, cardreader, modem and VGA card
    2 – For the empowering technology ( I dont remember exactly where I got it, but I do remember it was in a link from a forum, but here goes the version it runs on XP): 2.3.2026.0 – I think its from aspire 4520.
    3 – For the wireless setup (and this one sure was tricky) the correct drivers are in:
    Some advices:
    Download and install something called AutoPatcher_WinXPXXX (file with about 300 Mgs) after the new winXP install.
    Patience and cool (heh)
    Have fun

  17. glauco

    hi.. I have an Acer 4310 running Vista, my devices are ok, except the webcam, can’t make it work.. anybody experienced the same problem? and if ever, got a solution.. thanks

  22. Shah

    hi guys…

    suresh…i think you or some software in your laptop disabled your dvd drive in device manager…

    you could go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager

    in the window that opens there will be “DVD/CD-ROM Drives”
    click on the [+] and in the cascade there will be “optiarc dvd rw”
    right click on it and click “Enable” from the menu.

    dvd will now work

    hi m confused b/w acer A-4710 n compaq B1950tu , can neone help me out to make decision for buying the laptop , which one is better . Price of both the laptop is same 36500/-.

  32. Tobais Riepper

    Yes!! i yesterday bought this acer aspire 4710z (m typin this msg using this laptp…:) ). ya its really a cool laptop and this one supports Vista. but still we smart guys can use XP on it. The drivers they gave with this laptop is for Vista. hence they are not working in Windows XP. (SImply i HATE Vista.) hence i installed XP and downloaded the vga driver from its website. Its working fine now.

    1) I got a DEAD PIXEL. I called to its customer care but they are saying that upto 3 dead pixels are tollrable :X… Hence they wont replace mine. :(

    2) Sound of XP Operating system is too slow. but vedio and\or mp3 musics are Normal.

    3) NO BLUETOOTH present. I called to Customer care again and asked that if no BT present then why at left side of keypad one key for BT present?? they said for this model no BT present. the Keyboard is common for all laps of aspire series. hence the button. Its ok for me because i am using a USB blootooth.

    Thank YOu!!

    Its sad to say but i have Acer Aspire 4310 series.
    WiFi was sorking alright.
    but there was a virus attack and so my laptop was formatted and Windows Xp home Edition was re-installed from the Cd i got along with the laptop.

    Even after installing all the dirvers from the Acer CD, the WLAN is not getting installed.

    even more sad is that i cannot find any support online for this problem.

    hope this gets resolved Asap.

    wat do i do?

  60. Kristian

    i have an aspire 4310 working well for almost a year now. it is running on vista ultimate 32-bit edition. at first, my unit was very sluggish and programs tend not to respond very well. so i upgraded my RAM, i had an additional 1 GB of RAM installed and it works really good now(1.5 GB total). i had no problems with the drivers coz this laptop is really intended for vista and not for xp. i really love my aspire 4310. it is very affordable at an entry level. for me, this is the best deal if you are looking for a simple laptop with great functionalities. the wifi technology of acer really rocks, coz it can detect wireless network even outside the usual range. GO BUY AN ACER LAPTOP!!!
    for better performance:
    1. upgrade your RAM (you need money for this)
    2. defrag your hard drive (all you need is patience)
    3. do a regular disk scanning (patience again)
    4. run your antivirus and antispyware regularly
    5. install available updates for better performance
    these were just some simple steps in improving performance on a computer. sadly, most of it were taken for granted….

    note: treat your laptop like your pet so that it will respond to you better…
    hav a nice day!!!

    Hello people,

    my acer 4310 was attacked by virus.
    i try to format it but it says “no hard disk found”.
    could please somebody help me.

  78. MohanT


    Am writing this using an acer 4710 loaded with KUBUNTU 7.10 (the KDE version of UBUNTU linux). Yes, initial install was simple. However I had to a number of configurations to make some extras work:
    a) inbuilt mic / webcam will not work – had to fiddle with kmix and krec to get the mic work. Webcam works only with kopete (an IM).
    b) HEATING PROBLEM exists horribly! Just under the left palm even as one types!
    Can anyone HELP identify the problem so it can be fixed. I opened the back cover to check what was there underneath – nothing much could be located.
    c) I had upgraded my RAM to 2 GB at purchase – and discovered the screws holding the harddisk etc are missing (Kindly check yours — two of the four will be there, other 2 will be missing – dangerous!) Acer’s QA folks (BLR) were non-chalant and did not care at all. Anyhow I got a local fellow to fit it up!
    d) I refused to buy any laptop with dead pixels! Got the acer folks to replace mine (discovered within 2 hours of purchase, I had a HORRIBLE time getting to talk to the ACER Management to replace my unit (* I asked – would they put such an unit on display in their showrooms? If so, why this bad customer treatment? I told I shall blog everywhere about acer’s problems… and they obliged – sometimes it works).
    e) My WIFI setup does not work in Kubuntu 7.10 – I have not fully tried the fixes given – has anyone succeeded?

    My MAIN CONCERN/WORRY is the overheating problem! CAN SOMEONE HELP / SUGGEST A WAY OUT? Are acer folks worldwide listening?

  83. Kristian

    dont install xp on new laptops. vista is better than xp. the 4310 and 4710 were meant for vista os and not for xp. why dont you go with the changes of our technology? why are you too afraid to take the change? go with vista!!! it is a lot better here… im a satisfied vista user… because i know how to use my computer and maintain a good system… learn to do that and you will be happy…

    I bought an Acer Aspire 4720z in the month of April. Last month the sound stop working . I cannot hear an music. I tried calling the toll free number 1800116677 but I received no response. I am only kept on hold. How do I lodge a complain? Also the Service centre refuses to help without a complain number. Please help.

  95. Azaan

    i have an acer aspire 4710 running win xp on it my wi fi is not working when i press the wi fi button it just says enabled and then press it again it says disabled but the light does not come on what to do?

  96. Arijit

    Hi folks,

    My Acer 4710 is around 1 year and 1 month old…. and i do loads with it… In fact when i am not in office, i am with it and that would be some 12 hours on weekdays and around 24 hours on weekends .. doing some heavy programming…. playing games…like NFS or using Photoshop or watching movies … listening songs and what not….i think i covered everything….

    the rest of the time it simply uploads and downloads…. i keep on tweaking the WinXP that i got installed on it and revert back to the originals when i have had enough…

    the laptop has had a free fall from about 3 feet to hard concrete floor about 3 times in this last year and i am still using the originals… touch wood… without any problems….

    there are a few drawbacks though … which are again covered up by the loads of good features that this 14.1 inch 2.6 kg has !!!! the heating up is there… the sound quality… and the shorter battery life (i easily get around 2 hours +/- 10-20 mins doing the usual stuff)…. the sound doesnt sound too bad either if you use a headphone or earplug… after all laptops are not meant for entertaining you always [;)]…

    coming to the 4710 problems posted here for Win XP:
    1. Wi-Fi: Use the Intel driver from the download site mentioned in some of the posts above
    2. Empowering technology: Use the driver for Acer 5920 …. select your make and go ahead !!!

    @ Ash…. hope your problem is resolved by now…. if not … get a bootable WinXP CD… you need to format your C:. Try to keep the partition as FAT 32. If that doesnt work out…. i think you need to go to an ACER MALL technician…. who will take out the HDD and format the desired partition from some other system…. by the way… did you check your booting sequence on the BIOS? when you see the acer white screen press F2 function key… make the CD/DVD drive your first option and HDD as the 2nd…. hope this helps

    @ Azaan…. i hope to have solved your query… Use the Intel Driver for WiFi on WinXP.

    Honestly speaking…. WinXP is a let better than Vista…. Vista doesnt support many softwares like Oracle 10g… and many more and GOSH……. look at the space it takes….
    Go On with WinXP…. and if you have any queries on Acer Aspire 4710 with WinXP…. leave a post here … i will try my best to resolve it….

    BUT BUT BUT….. if you are not too sure of tweaking…. DONT….

    I too had to spend sometime collecting all the drivers and making all the buttons work…. and now its smooth sailing….
    why go for toll free numbers when you can be your own technician????

  97. xamath

    hi, my name zamath, i am from maldives. i have problem with wifi drivers in my acer 4310. in vista its working but in xp its not working. i tried it but i cant find it correct drivers for it. some body help me forthis

  98. Victor

    @Zamath, …. I think you need to unintall all the drivers that you have installed for wi fi. Then you need to go to any of the support sites for acer 4310… europe or philipines…. download the wireless_Intel driver for winXP and … that should do it….
    acer supports only atheros, broadcom and intel drivers only for wi fi…

    so… hope that solves your problem…

    Hello,i have the aspire 4520 and so far except for some minor problems like the jumping cursor and bad sound everything’s fine. however, i do notice that the cd drive or maybe the software(?) seem to have a problem. i hardly use it coz either the media player would suddenly freeze or it will have an error message. today, while watching a dvd it suddenly froze and then the cd drive wont respond anymore. it wont even open so that i could at least take out the cd! does anyone have any idea what’s wrong? im not techie so can somebody help me. thanks!

    hey guys,
    For acer drivers, you can download it to their website.. if you are using Windows Vista, just update the windows update features of your VISTA, and one click, the Vita OS will automatically download and install the driver for your laptop, without downloading the driver from acer website..

    Hope it will help..
