Acer have taken to this year’s CES with a selection of new additions to their already impressive range of across-the-board computing options.
The company has made a strong commitment to a more sustainable future, and a part of this initiative is the new Aspire Vero National Geographic Edition (pictured above). Featuring familiar National Geographic design cues, from the yellow rectangle through to neat little yellow feet, the laptop features 30 per cent post-consumer recycled plastic throughout its chassis, 50 per cent PCR in its keycaps, and has been designed with environmentally friendly ease of upgrading and repairs.
In the burgeoning Chromebook department, Acer have revealed a trio of new units. They come in three sizes and form factors, and Acer claim that they’re “furnished with everything consumers need”, which includes top audio and video technology. The new additions kick off with the Acer Chromebook Spin 513, delivering a convertible design, 13.5-inch display and long battery life, powered by the octa-core MediaTek Kompanio 1380 processor.
Meanwhile, the Acer Chromebook 315 looks after those who require a large screen offering, boasting a 15.6-inch anti-glare FHD display and numeric keypad – a rarity on a portable machine. The range is completed by the Acer Chromebook 314, with a 14-inch FHD display, the latest Intel processors and an OceanGlass touchpad.
If you’re more one for a spiffy desktop computer, then new additions to Acer’s Aspire range are sure to please. The company highlighted its sleek new Aspire C27 and C24 all-in-one desktops, which pack the very latest Intel 12th Gen Core i7 processors, generous storage, Wi-Fi 6E and – a very welcome touch – cable management. They also look the part, with a black finish and platinum details.
The Swift laptop range wasn’t overlooked, with announcements including new 14- and 16-inch models to the wafer thin – and very portable – Swift X range. The ultra-portable Swift X 14″ weighs a mere 1.4kg, and also features a 12th Gen Intel Core processor and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3050 Ti GPU into its 0.7-inch thin aluminium case. Meanwhile, the larger 16″ Swift X was co-engineered with Intel, and meets Intel Evo specifications. Both units also feature Windows 11, Wi-Fi 6E and include up to 16GB memory and 2TB SSD storage.
Those into top-line gaming machines weren’t left out, with new additions announced for the Predator and Nitro ranges. New models are incoming for the Predator Triton 500 SE, Predator Helios 300 and Acer Nitro 5, all featuring 12th Gen Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series Laptop GPUs, with the Acer Nitro 5 also including AMD Ryzen 6000 Series processor options.
