Acer is refreshing its mainstream laptop lineup with new Aspire 3 and Aspire 5 models featuring new specs and design.

The new Acer Aspire 3 is an entry-level 14 inch laptop that will be available with AMD A-series, Intel Celeron, or Intel Pentium processor options. And there are several new Acer Aspire 5 models featuring 8th-gen Intel Core “Whiskey Lake-U” processor options.

The new Aspire 5 laptops will be available in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa (EMEA) in December for €549 and up, while the Aspire 3 series laptops will be available in EMEA around the same time for €399 and up.

Here’s a run-down of some of Acer’s new laptops:
