Acer Switch Alpha takes on Microsoft’s Surface with liquid cooling

Liquid cooling is the sort of thing that you expect to find in an enthusiast gaming desktop. However, Acer doesn't seem to think that those are the only kinds of systems that should be able to take advantage of all that liquid cooling has to offer. Today they announced their new Switch Alpha 12 2-in-1 notebook, which features their LiquidLoop technology.

Acer Chromebase 24 all-in-one gets relaunched for Meetings

In early 2014, Google announced its new Chromebox for Meetings initiative that put Chrome OS almost literally at the heart of the enterprise, providing both computing power and software for making easy and secure video conferences. At that time, Chromeboxes themselves, even with the Meetings part, were fresh off the grill. Along with ASUS and HP, Acer was one of the earliest to adopt Google's business-friendly solutions. Now it's at it again, not with a Chromebox, but with its Chromebase 24, delivering what is the first ever Chromebase for Meetings.

Acer Predator Gaming Projector is Five Thousand Dollars

Acer Predator Gaming Projector is Five Thousand Dollars

What can a projector do that makes it worth a cool five thousand dollars? Acer aims to answer that question with the Predator Z850. This is a Gaming Projector, a device that works with "ultra-wide HD laser projection" and a design that landed it as an official CES 2016 Innovation Award Honoree. It can throw images that are super high quality an extremely short distance (that's something you want if you have a small room, which you do), and it's very, very bright. Is it all enough?

Microsoft spreads its apps farther, partners with Acer, other OEMs

It might still be a surprise and a puzzle for some that Microsoft has apps on both Android and iOS, though it seems to have a preference for the former. It is all part of a strategy to reclaim its lost ground, especially in the Office space. To say that Microsoft is aggressively pushing those Android apps to more users wouldn't be an understatement, as this announcement shows. Redmond has proudly revealed that it now has 74 OEM partners ready to preload its apps on smartphones, and one of them is Acer.

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

Acer Predator 17 gaming laptop Review: Big Red

The Acer Predator 17 is not just a good first-shot from a relatively new gaming line, it's a darn good notebook in and of itself. This laptop is large enough to give you a full gaming experience without being so bulky you'll never move it from your desk. This laptop is also clearly a gaming machine, but doesn't look like you decided on your hardware's look when you were young and foolish. In short - this is the gaming laptop you want if you're not afraid to go big, but don't want to drop cash on just any ol' run-of-the-mill flashy gamer unit.

Acer H7 USB-C monitor hands-on

With the Acer H7, Acer is jumping in on the USB-C party with what may be the first USB Type-C monitor to be released to the public for sale. What we're doing today is having a peek at what its panel looks like. Here at CES 2016, we're having a peek at this monitor as it's connected to both USB-C and HDMI cables - for power and video. What's great about this monitor is that, while it works with USB-C for video, you can also roll with a slightly more universal (for now) bit of video connector.
