Acer has outed its latest ultraportable, the TravelMate B115P, managing to fit in a touchscreen, ten hour battery life, and a full-sized keyboard into a fanless chassis. Targeting students and mobile workers, the TravelMate B115P - and its non-touch B115 sibling - has an 11.6-inch 1366 x 768 display and measures 21.2mm thick, with aluminum trim on the top.
Acer is introducing their 32-inch WQHD monitor, the B326HUL. The display packs a ton of pixels, offering up a 2560 x 1440 resolution. In bringing images to life, Acer also has some unique color reproduction stats, and the price is nothing to scoff at, either.
Acer took a "look but don't touch" approach when it revealed it was working on a Core i3 version of the C720 Chromebook back in New York City last month, but was feeling a little more accommodating today alongside Google and Intel. From the outside, as you'd expect, the C720 variant isn't especially different from the Chromebook we reviewed earlier; it's on the inside where things get interesting.
Intel has embraced Chrome OS, outing the first batch of Celeron-branded Chromebooks from a clutch of manufacturers, as well as the first Core i3 Chromebooks. The launch - which includes Lenovo's new N20p and N20 Chromebooks - also includes a new Education Chromebook reference design aiming to bring more Chrome devices into classrooms.
Is the PC dead? Not according to Acer, which brought a range of form-factors - from tiny tablets through to touchscreen all-in-ones - to New York City this morning, including a magnetically-docking Aspire Switch 10 2-in-1 and a potent Core i3 Chromebook. I caught up with Acer notebook chief Jerry Kao, to find out how the hybrid tablet is just the start of a new form-factor range for the company, as well as how Google dropped - and will reclaim - the ball in Chrome OS.
Three new notebooks have been announced this week in Acer’s E lineup this week including the Acer Aspire E 15, Aspire E 14, and Aspire E 11. Right here and now we’re having a peek at the larger two of the bunch in a variety of colors. These notebooks were made with your unique personality in mind, as is obvious, so you’ll need to make certain you’re making the right choice with a wide variety of tones.
There’s a new massive telephone-capable tablet in town, and it’s made by Acer. The same folks that’ve released a 10-color strong tablet of nearly the same size earlier today have also shown off the Iconia Tab 7, complete with the catchphrase "Keep in Touch." This 7-inch tablet is light, feels robust, and runs Android.
In an effort to brighten up the world of tablet, Acer has released at the Iconia One 7, a device we’re getting the opportunity to put our hands on this morning. This device is extremely light at just 0.73 lbs., 330 g, and thin at just 0.35-inches or 8.95mm. Perhaps the most important element here for users - the display - isn’t top-notch, but it’s certainly coming with a fine quality for its resolution at 1280 x 800.
We’ve got our hands on the Acer Aspire Switch 10 this morning and initial impressions are positive, with this device delivering a much finer connection that past Acer notebooks of the similar caliber. The Acer Aspire Switch 10 (SW5-011, the model we’re seeing here,) has great viewing angles - scarcely an angle we can’t see - and the picture is both relatively sharp (at 1366 x 768 pixels) and very bright. Coloration on the display is also fine, with not too much brightness in any one hue.
