Although tablets never really caught on as portable productivity devices, the rise in popularity of 2-in-1s and ultra slim laptops is hard to deny. Launched at Acer‘s Global Press Conference in New York last week, the new Switch Alpha 12 and Aspire S 13 represents the company’s bid to strengthen their presence in this up-and-coming sector.
With the limited time I got to spend with the devices, I was rather impressed.
Predator. A menacing word that describes a creature that preys on others in its specific food chain. In gaming, it refers to Acer’s line of hardcore gaming gear designed, no doubt, with a similar concept in mind: To dominate the competition.
But, with Acer‘s latest Predator launches at their Global Press Conference event last week in New York, the gaming line seems to have taken a peculiar turn. A turn that might cause some to question if the Predator was starting to become the prey.
Launched at Next@Acer earlier today, Acer’s latest mid-range offering not only has a rather odd name (that would sound totally at home at the shampoo aisle) but also a gigantic battery that apparently keeps fresh for up to two days.
About a year since they released their first wave of Predator devices, Acer has now announced a brand new gaming laptop, the Acer Predator 17X and portable gaming rig, the Predator G1. Best part? both devices are VR ready and can support the Oculus Rift, HTC Vive, OSVR and StarVR right out of the box.
The Next@Acer event in New York saw the launch of a bunch of new portable devices designed for the busy worker on the go all the way to those looking for hardcore gaming performance. Of the devices launched are the Acer Switch Alpha 12 2-in-1 PC, the rather skinny Acer Aspire S13 and the tough Chromebook 14 for Work.
Last year, Acer sent a trio of affordable smartphones into the local market under the Liquid Z banner. Now, they’ve strapped an ‘s’ badge on their Liquid Z630 smartphone along with some much-needed updates in the hardware department.
Acer has unveiled a brand new flagship device in the Mobile World Congress 2016, the Liquid Jade 2. Not just your regular flagship, this new Acer smartphone features a new feature up its sleeve — over 1TB of storage.
