Starting with Acer TravelMate P615-51, the laptop features a magnesium-aluminium alloy chassis to give a premium look. Additionally, users can set up a power plan to achieve optimal power usage in different scenarios, or access Acer TrueHarmony's six sound modes, turn sticky keys on or off and activate the LCD overdrive to bring the display response time down to 3ms.
Both laptops adopt 9th Intel Core processors1 and the latestNVIDIA graphics with fast refresh rates at 144Hz1 and a low latency of just 3ms. It starts at $1,199.99 in the U.S. or €1,499.99 in Europe.
Starting with Acer Aspire 7, the laptop is backed by a 15.6-inch Full HD display along with Acer TureHarmony and Acer Color Intelligence.
The ConceptD 9 is the flagship of the line, and Acer says it's specifically designed for drawing and 3D work. Both machines have a folding hinge that acts as an easel, similar to the one on the HP Spectre Folio.
Just like the Nitro 7, the Acer Nitro 5 has also been updated with the latest 9th generation Intel Core processor and latest Nvidia graphics card. Further, it's the smallest and lightest of the three ConceptD laptops.
Also in the lineup: the US$1,999 CP7271K monitor and the higher-end US$2,999 CM321K display. According to Acer, these new switches are pressure sensitive, providing gamers with more control over precise movements in the game.
The base variant Acer Spin 3 2-in-1 retails for $499.99 (Rs 34,550) and will be available from June 2019.
The slimmer ConceptD 5 metal-alloy bodied laptop features an 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor with Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics.
Next is the ConceptD 900 workstation and CM7321K monitor. "Inside the 9.9lb 17.3" laptop is a 1080p display, an Core i9 CPU and either a GeForce RTX 2080 or RTX 2070, not the Max-Q version either. It's a sign that Acer hasn't given up on virtual reality after rumors surfaced late a year ago that the company was considering shuttering its StarVR subsidiary. Announced at Acer's next@acer event in NY on Thursday, HyperDrift and the Predator Helios 700 that contains it will ship in April with a starting price of $2,700.
The Predator Helios 700 gaming notebook will be available in North America in July starting at US$ 2,699.99; in EMEA in July starting at Euro 1,499.00; and in China in May, starting at RMB 11,999.
In order to cool the desktop-grade graphics, Acer has introduced a new "HyperDrift" keyboard, allowing the whole keyboard deck to slide forward to reveal two additional intake fans.
As of now, there is no information on the price or the availability of the AcerConceptD system.
Sales of the new products start as early as next month in the US.
For cooling, the Helios 300 uses the same AeroBlade 3D fans found on its more expensive brother.
