How many PC companies, published a wide range of Acer laptops and new hybrids alongside Windows 8 at the back end of 2012. Just hit shelves with fresh systems, the company is highlighting these products at CES 2013, instead of announcing new additions.
We have to check a couple of chances to get out Acer Windows 8 launch lineup in the past two months, and have come up with a generally good impression. They run the gamut from traditional clamshell laptop with added touchscreen hybrids that straddle the line between PC and tablet. Highlights include:
Acer Aspire S7
This was one of the sharpest-looking new Windows 8 systems, makes it incredibly thin and light, although covered the glass lid is a bit top heavy. While the hardware and the design of the Aspire S7 is definitely premium, it’s a tough sell at $ 1,649 (for the Core i7 version), especially with touch-screen Windows 8 laptops for less than $ 529.
Acer Iconia W700
The Acer Iconia W700 is one i5-or-better by just a handful of core slate we’ve seen with Windows 8. When docked, it feels like a mini all-in-one desktop, although some felt full Windows 8 touchscreen tablet and keyboard combo looked ridiculous
Acer Iconia W510
Too expensive for a system with an Intel Atom, this laptop uses a removable screen as a standalone Windows 8 tablet when they separated. Nevertheless, the idea of a touch-screen slate running a full Windows operating system, which can instantly turn it into a functioning laptop is an appealing one.
The three PCs were referenced above originally announced alongside the introduction of Windows 8 the end of 2012 and are on sale now ..
