Acer Teases New Windows 8 Notebook with Star Trek Into Darkness As Its Backdrop

It's not entirely uncommon to see a major electronics maker using a major motion picture in order to promote new gear, but this may be one of the stranger mix-ups. Acer and Star Trek: Into Darkness have merged in a new 30 second avertisement that does a fairly good job of enticing viewers to check out both the film and whatever it is that Acer has up its sleeve. Judging by the Windows 8 icon at the end, it's possible that Microsoft is a third party in all of this, further using the new Acer notebook as a way to showcase the more unique abilities of Windows 8.


Judging by the clip, it appears that whatever the machine is, it'll be a laptop when you want it to be, and perhaps a convertible tablet at other times. It's a pretty odd folding mechanism from what we can see, but it's interesting nonetheless. Have a look at the video below; we'll be sure to keep an ear out for more details, a price, and a release date.

I dig Star Trek... Acer... well... they don't exactly inspire concepts like 'quality' to me. I have one Acer monitor and the backlighting and view angle is so bad on it that it doesn't even get used. Every other Acer product I've ever seen has been bad or just 'alright' if you needed something really cheap.
