Acer has introduced as many as four new products ahead of Computex 2016. These include two very affordable hybrid Windows laptops, a conventional notebook aimed at power users, and a 4K monitor with an almost bezel-less design. Acer said these products are perfect for students and even business professionals, which is…well, pretty true.
The most affordable products unveiled today are the Acer Switch V 10 and Switch One 10. Both laptops feature detachable 10.1-inch IPS displays, Intel Atom quad-core processors, fingerprint sensors, and interestingly, Precision Touchpads, which should provide very good – and accurate – tracking. While these two laptops share quite similar hardware, the main differences seem to come down to design and battery life: the Switch V 10 has up to nine hours of battery life, while the Switch One 10 is slightly less at eight hours.
Those who want something bigger and more powerful will be interested in the TravelMate P2 series, which is aimed at business professionals. It can be configured with Intel Core i processors paired with up to 32GB of RAM, a 14-inch or 15.6-inch Full HD display, an Nvidia Geforce 940M graphics card, and an optional fingerprint reader. The TravelMate P2 series is definitely not Acer’s sleekest-looking laptops, but it is definitely a capable one; the GPU is also powerful enough to do some gaming.
Last but definitely not least is the sleek-looking BM320 monitor. Other than its near bezel-less display, the BM320 is a 32-inch 3840 x 2160 4K monitor that is supposedly suitable for photographers and graphic designers. This is likely thanks to the monitor’s support for 100% Adobe RGB colour gamut and a range of other professional standards. Other than that, the BM320’s ErgoStand provides tilt, swivel, pivot, and of course, height adjustments.
As for retail prices, the Acer Switch One 10 retails from US$199 (about RM810), and it will be available in North America in July. The Switch V 10, on the other hand, is set to go from US$249 (approximately RM1,010), while the TravelMate P2 series is priced from US$599 (around RM2,430); both of these will only be available later this year. Oddly enough, the price and availability of the BM320 monitor have not been announced yet.
