Acer launched one of world’s first convertible Chromebooks, the Chromebook Spin 15 and an updated Chromebook 15 at the annual next@Acer event held in New York last week. The Taiwanese brand introduced these two new premium Chromebooks designed for business use that will be a gamechanger in the consumer market. In keeping with Acer’s focus on style and durability, both models feature an all-aluminum design and a full HD+ 13.5-inch display in a 3:2 aspect ratio. The new Acer Chromebooks are powered by 8th Gen Intel® Core™ processors providing exceptional performance and battery life for productivity on the go.
The convertible Chromebook Spin 13 has 360-degree hinges for use as a tablet, notebook, display, or in tent-mode. It comes with a Wacom® stylus (for pen input) that can be conveniently stored in the device slot.
Speaking at the launch, Acer CEO Jason Chen stressed upon the need for style and durability for today’s consumer. “Together with my team, we have come up with so many amazing holistic products offerings that will suit every age and need.” As a leader in Chromebooks, Acer has helped accelerate their adoption in business, education, and at home. As Chrome OS has evolved to include more features, they have responded with designs and form factors that offer meaningful benefits to our customers.”
Both the new Acer Chromebook Spin 13 and Chromebook 13 fully support Android apps via Google Play, so customers can have access to Chrome apps and more than two million Android apps for productivity, connectivity, and fun.
Also launched at the next@Acer event were the new Swift 5 Ultrabook, two gaming laptops and four gaming towers, including the unprecedented Intel Xeon-powered Acer Predator X. Acer also introduced two new power-packed desktops — the Predator Orion 5000 and 3000. The new members join the Predator Orion 9000, Acer’s top-of-the-line PC pedestal.
According to Sunil Nair, General Manager – Singapore & Director – Asia Small Economy Markets at Acer, these products will be launched in Sri Lanka mid June. “Sri Lanka will have all the newly launched products available in the local market simultaneously with Western markets.” He added that focus will be on the “Thin and Light” series (Swift 3) Notebooks and the Predator range of gaming products. “Sri Lankans are very well versed with technology and are one of the first to adopt the latest – be it the latest CPU, Graphics Capability, Full HD Screen etc. In addition, the full gamut of convertible (Spin series) and Detachable (Switch series) Notebooks will also be launched.”
This range of new devices and solutions are targeted towards gamers, creators, families, students and professionals.
