Acer unveiled two new Windows 10 computers at an event in Taiwan today.
The first is an updated version of the company’s 14 inch convertible notebook, while the other is an all-in-one desktop PC with a built-in battery that allows you to use the computer even when it’s unplugged.
Acer Aspire R14
Earlier this year, Acer launched a 14 inch convertible laptop with a 5th-gen Intel Core processor earlier this year. Now the company is updating the Acer Aspire R14 line of products with new models featuring 6th-gen Core processors and a refined design with a brush metallic finish, diamond-cut edges, and a thinner 360-degree hinge.
The new Acer Aspire R14 will be available in North America later in October with prices starting at $699. It’ll also be available in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa for €799 and up.
Acer says the new model measures 0.73 inches thick and weighs about 4.2 pounds, making the new model a little thinner and lighter than the version that came out earlier this year.
The notebook will be available with up to 8GB of RAM, a Core i5-6200U or Core i7-6500U processor, up to 512GB of solid state storage, and 802.11ac WiFi with MU-MIMO technology.
Acer says the laptop should be able to get up to 9 hours of battery life.
Acer Aspire Z3-700
Acer’s new all-in-one desktop has a 17.3 inch, 1920 x 1080 pixel capacitive multitouch display, an Intel Celeron N3050, Celeron N3150, or Pentium N3700 Braswell processor, up to 8GB of RAM, and options for a 500GB hard drive or 32GB through 256GB of solid state storage.
The computer’s significantly more portable than a typical all-in-one, measuring about 0.6 inches thick, weighing about 4.5 pounds, and offering up to 5 hours of battery life between charges.
Acer also includes a stylus, which you can use to write, draw, or just have a little more precision when interacting with the touchscreen.
The Aspire Z3-700 will be available for €599 and up in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa by the end of 2015, but there’s currently no information about North American release plans for this new all-in-one computer.
