The Acer Aspire 3 15.6-inch model has an IPS display rather than the TN screen seen in the 14-inch device, which provides improved viewing angles and colour reproduction. Although both monitors are 1080p with 16:9 aspect ratios, any additional display specifications like peak brightness or colour accuracy are not yet confirmed. The 15.6-inch is obviously heavier and larger than the 14-inch, but the additional width is utilised to provide a dedicated number pad. The Aspire 3 14 measures 32.7 x 21.6 x 1.9 cm, weighs 1.4 kg, and is somewhat smaller than the Aspire 13 15, which is 36.3 x 23.9 x 1.9 cm and weighs 1.7 kg.
Acer presently offers the new Aspire 3 in sizes 14 inches and 15.6 inches. Both devices, despite having different sizes, special keyboard designs, and display types, are powered by the Core i3-N305 processor. The Core i3-N305 has eight 3.8 GHz E-cores but no P-cores or Intel Hyper-Threading functionality. A UHD Graphics Xe 750 iGPU with 32 Execution Units and a 15 W TDP is also included with the processor.
Acer has upgraded the processor with 8 GB of LPDDR5 RAM, most likely LPDDR5-4800. Both Aspire 3 models come with a 256 GB NVMe SSD and a 3-cell Li-Polymer battery that supports 45 W charging. The laptops will include several connectors, including two USB 3.2 Gen1 Type-A ports, one USB 3.2 Gen2 Type-C port, one HDMI port, one Kensington lock slot, and one 3.5 mm jack.
