Acer has unveiled a new line-up of Windows notebooks and convertible laptops during its next@acer press conference in New York yesterday. The portfolio includes two 2-in-1s, the Aspire Switch 10 E and Aspire Switch 10; an 11-inch convertible, the Aspire R 11; and three notebooks, the Aspire V 15, Aspire E and ES Series.
All devices will ship with Windows 8.1 but will be eligible for a free upgrade to Windows 10 when Microsoft launches the operating system in the next few months.
They form part of the company’s latest back-to-school range, but are also suitable for families and business professionals.
Included in the line-up is the smallest addition to Acer’s convertible notebook range – the Aspire R 11 (pictured) with 11.6-inch display. With a 360-degree hinge, the notebook can convert between four modes – notebook, pad, display and tent.
Powered by an Intel Pentium processor and Intel HD graphics, the Aspire R 11 can be configured with up to 8GB of DDR3L system memory and up to 1TB hard drive. It has an Acer Crystal Eye HD webcam, built-in SD card reader, USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, and full sized HDMI and VGA ports.
The new Aspire Switch 10 E and Switch 10, meanwhile, combine a full Microsoft Windows 8.1-based notebook and tablet featuring a magnetic detachable design for latch-free docking and smooth transition between the same four modes.
Both models are powered by an Intel Atom quad core processor and 2GB DDR3L memory, and are pre-loaded with Windows 8.1 along with Microsoft Office 365 Personal.
