Yesterday, we’ve written about two new devices presented by Acer at its Next@Acer 2017 conference. A smartwatch Leap Wear and a camera Holo 360 were indeed interesting but not the only devices unveiled at the conference. After all, Acer is mostly known for laptops. Therefore, here’s our brief review of Acer novelties in the laptop industry.
– All-in-one desktops. Acer introduced two models: Aspire U27 and Aspire Z24. U27 with a 27-inch (obviously) display is the first monoblock with a fanless cooling system Acer LiquidLoop which eliminates all noise. Both devices support Full HD, have Intel Core i7 processors and 32GB RAM. U27 and Z24 come out in June.
– Gaming laptops. Gaming industry is growing and Acer keeps up with the trend. Predator Triton 700 is a response to thin Razer Blade laptops. Under the 18.9mm all the power is concealed: an Intel Core i7 Kaby Lake processor, NVIDIA GTX 10 graphics card, 32GB RAM and AeroBlade 3D cooling system.
Another model is Predator Helios 300with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, same Intel Core processor and 16GB RAM.
– Acer released a couple of new hybrid laptops/tablets: Switch 3 and Switch 5. The highlight here is Switch 5 with a Kaby Lake Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB RAM, 256/512GB storage and the Liquid. The 12-inch display has a 2160×1440 resolution and stylus support. What’s more, the device works for 10-11 hours from a single charge.
– Updated Swift line-up. Acer renewed its light and thin Swift line-up with Swift 1 and Swift 3. The first one is a much more affordable version (Intel Celeron, 4GB RAM, 64-256GB SSD), while the second one is much more advanced: Intel Core i7, 8G RAM, NVIDIA GeForce graphics, etc. Both laptops boast 10-hour battery time, so it would be a great choice for students.
– Updated Aspire line-up. For simple, everyday use Acer has the Aspire line-up and it’s been updated as well. For prices ranging from $219 to $799 users can choose a loyal daily companion for office tasks, web surfing, and so on.
