Acer Predator G6 Review : War Machine

Acer Predator G6 Review : War Machine

The desktop Acer calls Predator G6 (G6-710 for this review) is a monster. It's not the largest and most all-inclusive PC they offer - it's not even the most massive Predator. Instead, it's a great combination of elements. It's powerful enough to run high-end games and virtual reality applications, acts like a custom-built rig (with plenty of bright lights and odd opening panels), and looks rather fine. There's room for expansion, but also rolls correct right out of the box.

Acer Chromebook 11 (2016), Chromebook 14 now up on Google Store

Chromebooks have suddenly become an interesting topic these days, somewhat ironically not because of themselves but becaue of Android. At Google I/O 2016 last month, Google revealed how Android apps would soon be coming in full capacity on Chrome OS via Google Play Store. That has just made Chromebooks nearly worth twice their value in terms of the things you can do on the laptop. It is quite timely, then, that Google makes available two of Acer's latest models, the Chromebook 14 and the 2016 refresh of the Chromebook 11.

Acer H277HU USB-C Monitor Review: Your MacBook’s best friend

Acer H277HU USB-C Monitor Review: Your MacBook’s best friend

USB-C is our salvation from cable madness, at least that's what they tell us, but as early adopters of Apple's MacBook or other cutting-edge hardware have realized, reality hasn't caught up to the promise. The theory, and indeed the core technology, is sound, but it's illustrative of the dearth of peripherals that the Acer H277HU display is causing as much interest as it is. Yes, you can plug it into your old-school PC, but this is really all about USB-C.

Acer Liquid Zest Plus launch date set for July

Acer Liquid Zest Plus launch date set for July

It's been over a month since Acer actually took the veils off the Liquid Zest Plus and now it is finally saying when and how much you'll have to pay to get it. That all starts in July and for a measly $199, far below our expected $250. Those looking for a large battery at a manageable size might want to take that month-long wait. That is, if they could live with the Acer Liquid Zest Plus' other hardware specs, which, as you might guess from the price, might not be all that much.
