Just like every other year where Acer launches the new lineup of devices or an upgrade to its predecessor, this year at [email protected] 2020 – they have launched quite the number of devices including a bizarre product which we did not see it coming from Acer honestly. Read our Predator Article for that – but in this article we are going to talk about three products in particular – the Spin 713, Swift 5 and ConceptD 3 Ezel.
Thin and Light
Chromebook Enterprise Spin 713
Acer is the leading ChromeBook manufacturer in that particular segment and this time they have an enterprise Laptop, the Spin 713. This laptop is one of the approved Project Athena Laptop that Intel talked about a long while back. It runs Chrome OS but with the option to upgrade to an Enterprise option and the display is what makes the Spin 713 interesint. It comes with a 13.5” VertiView – a 3:2 aspect ratio display that seems fit for both Portrait and Landscape reading or use case scenario. The Spin 713 gets the MIL-STD-810G Durability for extra toughness. The laptop gets an Antimicrobial Solution for better protection against microbes.
Acer Swift 5
Swift series has been a fan favorite of sorts and this time once again, Acer has done some little design tweak to it which now makes the laptop weigh around 1kg. It’s powered by the Latest Intel processor and a Discrete GPU from NVIDIA – a GeForce MX350. The laptop gets an Antimicrobial Solution for better protection against microbes too.
ConceptD 3 Ezel
Last year we got to see the ConceptD Lineup and the 3 is their entry level laptop of sorts. This time the 3 gets a makeover by adding an Ezel Display like their older Acer Aspire R7. It’s supported by a flat hinge where you can move it all flat to the surface and use only the display and there’s the presentation mode where you can flip it other way around to show it to others. Now, the display is a touch screen with support for Active Pen which sits right inside the body – which means you dont have to worry about carrying your own active pen. The laptop weighs in at 1.68kg and it offers 18 hours of battery life.
