Acer today announced two new devices that bring Windows 10 to life, namely the Aspire R 14 (R5-431T/471T) convertible notebook, and the Aspire Z3-700 portable all-in-one PC.
Ultimate Flexibility with the Aspire R 14
The Aspire R 14 has evolved with a new hairline-brush metallic finish, diamond-cut edge design, and a thinner 360-degree dual torque hinge for incredible flexibility between four usage modes. When paired with Continuum, this helps people switch easily between PC and tablet mode. People can maximize productivity with the most efficient method of keyboard input in classic Laptop mode, and switch to Display mode by hiding the keyboard at the back or laying 180 degrees flat, ideal for collaborating, sharing and entertainment. Converting to Tent mode gives users the option to use in a confined space, while a masterfully-crafted magnet design allows the device to be fully converted into Tablet mode â€“ without any gaps whatsoever.
“The new lineup of Acer Aspire devices show the versatility of the latest Intel processors,” said Kirk Skaugen, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Client Computing Group, Intel. “Leveraging the power of Intel technology, these new devices are thin, light, fast and perfectly suited for productivity and entertainment at home or on the go.”
At only 18.5mm thin and weighing in at just 1.9kg, the Aspire R 14 incorporates 6th Gen IntelÂ® Coreâ„¢ processors, up to 8GB DDR3L system memory, and SSD storage1 for powerful performance both at home or on the go. For faster connection speeds, the new Aspire R 14 includes MU-MIMO wireless technology, allowing up to three times faster2 downloads compared to other 802.11ac products, especially in crowded networks.
An All-in-One Made to Move, the Aspire Z3-700
The new Aspire Z3-700 all-in-one PC features a built-in battery that will last for 5 hours, allowing consumers to perform desktop productivity or entertainment tasks anywhere around the house. The 17.3-inch Aspire Z3-700 has a chassis of just 15.6 mm slim and 2 kg light, while two kick stands allow it to stand or lay flat like a jumbo tablet.
Powered by IntelÂ® PentiumÂ® or CeleronÂ® processors, up to 8GB of DDR3L system memory, and SSD or HDD storage options3, the Aspire Z3-700 provides ample performance for infotainment tasks. It features a Full HD (1920 x 1080) 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen, which also supports input via a dedicated stylus for even more precise control.
