When Acer revealed its Aspire Switch 10 and 11 notebooks a couple of months ago, it really touted them as being something amazing. To its favor, I don't think the company was that far off-the-mark. Not only do the Aspire Switch models released so far look great, they're also extremely flexible. In its commercials... Read more...

Some have claimed that the desktop is dead, and admittedly, it's not hard to understand why. Over the course of just a handful of years, mobile has become more important and in-our-face than ever. Not only do we have smartphones in our pockets, we have notebooks at home, and perhaps even a tablet. Soon, we might even have a smartwatch on our... Read more...

They might not be the most powerful PCs out there, but Google's Chromebook and Chromebox series has one thing locked-down: Value. That's something proven in spades with Acer's new Chromebox CXI, a compact desktop PC that starts at a mere $180. You might think that a sub-$200 PC would have to look like a sub-$200 PC...

One is the mid-range Liquid E4 with a fairly respectable spec sheet and the other is the Liquid Z4, a low-cost handset Acer hopes will appeal to cost-conscious... Read more...
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. It seems like a thousand years have gone by since Acer was on top of its game and talking about how it was going to supplant Hewlett-Packard as the world's top PC maker (in terms of shipments). Instead, Lenovo was the one that leapfrogged into first place, while a series of missteps and CEO changes ultimately... Read more...

One has to wonder how much longer the tried-and-true all-in-one PC will stick around, as the world continues to shift to more mobile form factors and desktops become a thing of the past.

With technology, it's expected that as time passes, our products will become ever more robust, but there's also a chance that they will become more robust and cost less.

Generally, notebook manufacturers aim to release notebooks at two major inflection points: right around the back-to-school season, and at CES each January. Acer, however, is mixing things up a bit as it announces two new lines in the TravelMate range this morning. The first is the TravelMate P645 Ultrabook, which is... Read more...
Just as Android tablets really started to take off once smaller size (and lower cost) models were introduced, the same may be true of Windows 8.1 slates. We'll soon find out.

In the case of the first model in the series, the C720-2800, it’s an Intel Celeron 2955U chip; it may be disappointing that it’s not at least a Core series processor, but remember that these...
