Acer has unveiled its full range of exciting product line and updated the progress from its new businesses division at the next@acer global press conference in New York recently. Focusing on specific areas of life: productivity, education, entertainment, gaming and connecting, Acer has harnessed valuable insights to design products to appeal to anyone looking for more.
Acer is pursuing multiple growth engines of its core business, while exploring new market domains to broaden its business boundaries as it transforms to become a hardware + software + services company. To energize and accelerate this transformation, Acer announced the expansion across its high-octane Predator gaming series, new consumer notebooks including 2-in-1s and convertibles, commercial portfolio, Chromebook, and more for the back-to-school season.
“I’m excited to unveil the fruits of our corporate transformation,” said Jason Chen, corporate president and CEO of Acer. “With new innovations from our core business of IT products, we’ve also made progress in our new business expansion with the industry’s first cycling computer with intelligent video recording applications built-in.”
The Switch Alpha 12 takes Acer’s popular 2-in-1 series to a new level of innovation with the company’s proprietary liquid cooling technology that allows for silent and reliable operation in an ultra-slim design as it requires no fan inside. The ultra-slim S series now offers the best fusion of performance and build at a highly desirable price with the Aspire S 13; while Acer also unveiled its thinnest 15-inch 360-degree convertible with the Aspire R 15.
New to Acer’s powerful and award-winning Predator gaming line include the Predator 17 X notebook and Predator G1 desktop. These gaming PCs are ready for virtual reality (VR) devices from four major vendors: Oculus, HTC Vive, OSVR and StarVR. Exciting innovations such as a custom triple-fan cooling system that enables astonishing performance from desktop-grade components in the Predator 17 X allow gamers to enjoy industry-leading performance in portable gaming machines.
“Acer’s Predator gaming line has received highly positive reviews from gaming experts all over the world,” added Chen. “And we are on track with a bright start with our gaming desktop growth rate more than tripling the industry average year-on-year in the first two months of this year for shipments.”
