At its virtual [email protected] 2021 event today, Acer announced new Concept3D, Predator, Chromebook, Swift, and TravelMate hardware products.
There’s a lot to unpack here, so rather than regurgitating everything that Acer announced, I will instead point you at the [email protected] 2021 website and point out what I feel are some of the highlights:
Swift X. This new ultraportable ships with AMD Ryzen 5000 Series mobile processors, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti Laptop graphics, and a 100 percent sRGB display, and it will provide up to 17 hours of battery life. The Swift X arrives in June and will cost $900 and up.
ConceptD 7 Ezel. This flagship convertible notebook is aimed at creators and has been updated an with 11th-generation Intel Core i7-11800H processor, and up to NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics. And there’s a new ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro model that offers even more impressive hardware, including up to an Intel Xeon W-11955M processor and NVIDIA RTX A5000 or A3000 graphics. And all models now include dual Thunderbolt 4 ports. Prices start at $2500, and the ConceptD 7 Ezel will ship next month.
Predator Triton 500 SE. This “special edition” gaming notebook is powered by up to an 11th-generation Intel Core i9 Processor, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 graphics, and up to 64 GB of 3200 MHz DDR4 RAM. It delivers up to 12 hours of battery life and provides a 16-inch 16:10 display with three display panel options, including a 165 Hz WQXGA LCD display. The Predator Triton 500 SE will be available in June starting at $1,750.
Acer Chromebook Spin 713. Billed as the world’s first Evo-based Chomebook, the Acer Chromebook Spin and Enterprise Spin provide 11th-generation Intel Core i7 processors, two Thunderbolt 4 ports, and a VertiView 13.5-inch display. They will be available in June starting at USD $700.
Again, there is a lot more going on here, so be sure to check in with Acer.
