Acer held the Global Press Conference and released a lot of new computers as well as a couple of other announcements. Check out the entire conference in a video below and will be sharing some of the highlights. Acer revealed it’s joining RE100 and pledged to convert to 100% renewable energy use by 2035. In an effort to help face environmental challenges, they then announced their Earthion platform with the first product being the Aspire Vero. This computer will feature post-consumer recycled plastic, eco-friendly packaging, and more. Inside, you’ll find the latest 11th gen Intel Core processor with Intel Iris X graphics and up to 1 TB of M.2 SSD storage.
Acer also showed off the new SpatialLabs suite of experiences that will be avialbale on their ConceptD notebooks. SpatialLabs uses stereoscopic 3D to allow content to float off the screen to provide a new way of looking at items. This will help provide new angles and perspectives. I am not a creator and so I don’t know what exactly this will help with, but it sounds freaking awesome. It works by using a sterescopic 3D display, real-time rendering technology, and eye-tracking.
Speaking of the ConceptD notebooks, there are three lines, the 3, 5, and 7 Ezel. The ConceptD 3 (Ezel and Pro) will feature 14” screens, 11th gen Intel Core H-series CPUs, and up to NVIDIA T1200 GPUs. They’ll be available in December starting at $1,599.99.
