Acer is serious about external graphics—the idea that you can plug a graphics card into a relatively weak computer and make it more powerful whenever you need. How serious? The company will sell two computers with external graphics in mind, starting this year.
Acer just released a kraken. Forty different gadgets—laptops, desktops, tablets, wearables, fitness trackers, mini PCs, monitors—for the upcoming back to school season. But the most intriguing was Acer’s mysterious new gaming tablet. The Predator.
Say hello to two new additions to Acer's Touch lineup, the Aspire M5 Touch Ultrabook™ and Aspire V5 Touch Notebook. Because Acer continues to commit to delivering the industry's most complete user experience, the M5 Touch and the V5 Touch offer incredible touch and type duality.
Last Wednesday we were fortunate enough to have Eric Ackerson, Acer's senior product marketing and brand manager, here to chat. Needless to say, you guys weren't afraid to ask Eric some tough questions — which in turn gave Eric the chance to talk about some really exciting developments in Acer's upcoming line of…
Acer's website makes a pretty big claim about the Aspire S5 Ultrabook — mainly that it "might just change your life." Well, tomorrow is your chance to find out if that's true or not, because Eric Ackerson, Acer's senior product marketing and brand manager, will be here to answer your questions live.
The first generation of Ultrabooks was rushed out. Everything felt unfinished. Not the Aspire S5. Even though Acer's last Ultrabook attempt, the S3, was very middle-of-the-pack, the S5 looks like it's going to be good. It feels absolutely nothing like the S3. Where the S3 was plasticy, and overall cheap-feeling, the…
Just because most of us bought iPads doesn't mean that any of you should. There are plenty of devices, out now or coming soon, that can do some things as well—or better. Here's a roundup of the best:
Murmurings of an Acer Aspire packing Intel's new Pine Trail N450 processor have been doing the rounds for a while, but finally pics and more specs have been leaked, cementing the existence of this still-unofficial model.
The Z5610 seems like a better-looking, but less powerful version of the Gateway ZX6800. Both all-in-one PCs have 23-inch (1080p) multi-touch displays, and Windows 7. But the Z5610's 2.6GHz Pentium E5300 processor won't match the Gateway's Core 2 Quad chip.
Finally, the industry pauses to catch its breath. With Intel taking a bit longer than expect on the Pine Trail-M platform (smaller, faster Atom processors), DigiTimes reports that netbook powerhouses Asus and Acer will be waiting until 2010 to introduce new models of netbooks.

Today, Acer announced their updated line of Aspire laptops. But the most interesting has to be the Aspire AS5739G, a no-compromises performance machine with a tempting price of $750.
It could be the best 80s-style comedy you've seen in years. The Acer 3935 and 8935G are about as biologically related as Danny DeVito and the Governator.
Acer's Aspire Z5600 multi-touch all-in-one does the best job yet of looking like more like a TV than a computer, which is kind of a good thing. Oh yes, it's built for Windows 7—the future.
The Aspire Timeline notebooks looks sorta familiar, but I can't quite put my finger on it. Hmm. Anyway, they squeeze out 8-10 hours of battery life and start at just $699.
