$480+ Aspire 3 laptop is powered by an Intel Core i3-N305 Alder Lake-N processor

Intel has just launched the Alder Lake-N processors and a duo of ACER Aspire 3 laptops are some of the first platforms to feature the Core i3-N305 octa-core processor, after the introduction of the MSI Cubi N ADL mini PC last week.

Both models are equipped with 8GB RAM and a 256GB SSD, but the Aspire 3 A314-36P-360X comes with a 14-inch display while the Aspire 3 A315-510P-3905 features a 15.6-inch display both at Full HD (1920 x 1080) resolution.

Intel Core i3-N305 laptopThe ACER Aspire 3 Alder Lake-N laptops ship with Windows 11 OS. The laptops will offer a significant boost in CPU and GPU performance compared to a laptop based on a Jasper Lake processor such as the Pentium Silver N6000 with, for instance, more than double the GPU performance in 3DMark using the Core i3-N305 processor.

We did not have any clear pricing information for Alder Lake-N systems so far, but we now do, as ACER sells the Aspire 3 A314-36P-360X laptop for $479.99, and the Aspire 3 A315-510P-3905 for $499.99
