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).

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. That said, there's still a lot of life left in certain markets (storefronts, education, healthcare, etc.), and Acer's new Aspire Z3-600 hopes to hit as many... Read more...

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.

One company that's answering... Read more...
