Acer Aspire Switch 11 review: the best of both worlds

Acer Aspire Switch 11 review: the best of both worlds

Acer is back with another convertible PC: the Acer Aspire Switch 11. As with this machine's previous iteration, the Aspire Switch 11 is both a tablet and a laptop, being whichever you'd like it to be in any given moment. This is nothing new, but these type of machines can often miss the mark when it comes to usability. Such isn't the case with the Switch 11 -- though a bit on the thick side, this convertible PC works wonderfully as a laptop and even better as a tablet. Will it meet your needs?

Acer Iconia Tab 10 Android tablet flaunts Full HD display

It's been a while since we've heard from Acer's budget Iconia Tab line and apparently the OEM has been busy. Although the company's affordable devices sometimes earn it the connotation of being cheap, whether deserved or not, this time it isn't holding back. At least too much. While the new Iconia Tab 10 does still fall under the category of budget tablet, Acer is at least giving it a worthy Full HD screen, which, with Zero Air Gap tech, makes it a rather worthy one for the price.

Acer C910 Chromebook adds faster chip option

Acer C910 Chromebook adds faster chip option

Acer has injected a little extra grunt into its C910 Chromebook, throwing a faster Core i5 processor at the 15.6-inch notebook. The new model fleshes out a range generally under-served in Chrome OS machines, with a larger screen than the majority of notebooks running Google's cloud-centric platform. Previously, Acer only offered the C910 with a choice of Intel Celeron and Core i3 chips, but even with the new, more potent silicon under the hood, is promising as much as eight hours use on a single charge.

Acer Chromebook 15 Review: huge screen, tiny price

Acer Chromebook 15 Review: huge screen, tiny price

When it comes to Chromebooks, few set themselves apart. The Pixel is astonishing, but seems easily dismissed by most due to the price tag. At $999, the Pixel is just too much to spend for Chrome OS, and far too much out-of-pocket to suffer its limitations. The Acer Chromebook 15 might be one to consider for Chrome OS users. Big promises often come in plastic shells in the PC game, so does the Chromebook 15 deliver on its fairly impressive spec sheet? We find out.

Acer announces spec-heavy Chromebox CXI with 4k support

Acer announces spec-heavy Chromebox CXI with 4k support

Laptops get a lot of attention, but many still want standalone computers. Some of those customers will find favor with Chrome OS, where the limited overhead often leads to reduced pricing based on a tighter spec sheet. Today, Acer is breaking that mold, and has announced a new, over-the-top Chromebox. The latest in Acer’s CXI lineup, this one doesn’t simply limp onto the scene as some others do. It’s a fairly robust powerhouse — at least by Chrome OS standards.

Acer Liquid M220 hands-on: a late Windows Phone club member

Acer Liquid M220 hands-on: a late Windows Phone club member

When you speak of Windows Phone phones, one mostly thinks of Microsoft's, formerly Nokia's, Lumia line, except for one or two exceptions. Although Microsoft hasn't been very clear about its plans for other OEMs to join the Windows Phone party, it hasn't stopped others from trying their luck. The latest to join the fray is Acer, who is now unveiling the Liquid M220, an unabashedly low tier smartphone that will rub shoulders with all other low-end Lumias. Of course, it's still running Windows Phone 8.1, but that won't be a problem in the future.
