Chromebooks have always intrigued me. For what I do, a Chromebook seems like the perfect workhorse but the problem always was — Chromebooks were hard to find in Malaysia.
Well, not anymore because Acer Malaysia has just launched a slew of them plus two Chromeboxes.
I love thin, light and affordable laptops that are designed for work on the go. For me, all they need to do is handle word processing, web browsing, some rudimentary photo editing and that’s about it. Oh yeah, they should also have a long battery life, at least enough to last a working day, anyway.
The last time I checked out a laptop from Acer, it was their then brand new Aspire S 13 — a thin and light no-nonsense productivity laptop. It had a lot going for it, with a nice set of I/O ports and a nice matte display. But, there were one or two issues such as the mediocre battery life and the mostly plastic body.
Now, they’ve refreshed their laptop lineup with several new devices from Acer’s Spin and Swift series. One laptop that stood out to me as an interesting alternative to the Aspire S 13 was the Swift 3. MacBook-esque looks aside, it bears a lot of similarities with the S 13, but with a few new features and compromises. So I thought it’d be interesting to see if it’s worth the RM100 premium.
Acer Malaysia launched three brand new monitors today. Two of them are targetted at gamers and come with G-Sync and Free Sync. The third, however, is perhaps even more interesting as it’s a 4K UHD 43-inch monitor that’s priced at RM2,299.
Last year, my eyes watered in awe when I saw the most absurd (in the best way possible) gaming laptop ever — Acer’s Predator 21 X. Back then, all I had to play with was a pre-production unit with unconfirmed specifications. Now, in CES 2017, the beast has returned with a more official spec list.
Oh, and it’s got a ludicrous price tag too. Then again, you’ve probably already read the title.
The world’s thinnest laptop, the Acer Swift 7, could be heading our way very soon as we just received an invite from Acer Malaysia to a launch event that’s taking place next month! The title? “So thin, it’s unbelievable”. I mean, what else could it be?
Winning a brand new PC is pretty awesome. Winning a brand new limited edition PC is even MORE awesome. And now, it’s easier than ever! Here’s what you do.
The portable gaming market is getting more and more competitive as Acer has finally launched their all new Predator devices — the 17 X gaming laptop and G1 desktop — in Malaysia. These devices are designed to be compact, powerful and focused on what gamers want.

UPDATE: We have a new comparison for smartphones under RM600. Check it out here.
Getting a smartphone is usually a big decision. Unless money isn’t an object to you, this process will likely take a lot of notepad-pros-and-cons, weighing the features you need, the features you want and what you’re willing to spend on a smartphone before deciding.
That can be a lot of hard work, so we thought we’d do most of the hard work for you and list down some of the best smartphones under RM1,000 that you can buy officially in Malaysia.

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.
