Acer has revealed a range of new devices and desktops powered by the Windows 10 operating system.

The Aspire 7 device has been built with the needs of professionals such as designers in mind, and comes with either a 15-inch or 17-inch display. 

This device features a 7th Gen Intel Core standard-voltage processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, as well as 32GB of memory. The Aspire 7 also features an HD camera.

Business users can take advantage of two new Aspire desktops – the Aspire U27 and Aspire Z24. Both desktops run on Windows 10, include a 7th Gen Intel Core processor, and have Intel Optane Memory as an optional extra.

The Aspire U27 and Aspire Z24 both feature Windows Hello and are Skype for Business certified.

Acer has also made two new additions to its line of Swift notebooks, aimed at meeting the needs of on-the-go users.

Swift 3 and Swift 1 run on Windows 10 and support Windows Hello through fingerprint readers, which enables fast and secure login. The devices also feature Skype for Business certification, and users can harness the power of Cortana using their voice.

The company has added two new models to its flexible 2-in-1 range. The Switch 5 and Switch 3 feature Windows 10 with the Creators Update, and have been designed to meet both work and leisure needs.

Both of these devices include the Acer Active Pen for the touch screen. This allows users to sketch, take notes or annotate documents or photos using Windows Ink. They can also draw on the web by using Microsoft Edge.

Each of the new releases feature anti-virus, firewall, Windows Defender and anti-phishing technologies.
