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.
Then, Acer took things up a notch (wait, I guess they took it down a notch) when they released the Swift 7 — the new ‘world’s thinnest laptop” and the first to bring a laptop’s thickness down below 1cm. But all that thinness comes with a price. RM4,999 to be precise. Yowza.
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?
It’s mad. It’s completely nuts. It’s absolutely incredible.
Acer has also unveiled its brand new Swift series of notebooks which focuses on portability. The Acer Swift 7 is their top of the line model and it’s currently the thinnest laptop at only 9.98mm while weighing just 1.1kg. This is the first laptop to go under 1cm thick. As a comparison, the already crazy thin HP Spectre 13 has a thickness of 10.4mm and it weighs 1.16kg.
We have seen a couple insane gaming laptops that are obsessed of delivering desktop gaming performance. At IFA 2016, Acer has just introduced a gaming laptop of epic proportions with its new Predator 21 X. This is Acer’s new flagship gaming laptop and it comes with a massive curved 21″ display.
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.
