Acer has unveiled the Aspire Z series all-in-one (AIO) PCs, which have been refreshed with the 23.8-inch Aspire Z3-710, featuring capacitive 10-point multi-touch, and the 19.5-inch ZC-700 AIO.
Both new devices feature a Full HD (1920x1080) LED backlit display, Windows 8.1 and are supported by Acer for the free upgrade to Windows 10 when it is released on July 29th.
Gregory Bryant, corporate VP and general manager of desktop client platforms at Intel, said: “We’re thrilled with the great innovation in Acer’s latest all-in-one PC.
“Showing just how much the desktop has been reinvented, this slim design with amazing user experience is another example of what’s possible.”
The Z Series boasts a 1080p Full HD webcam, stereo speakers with Acer TrueHarmony and Dolby Digital Plus Home Theater technology, which enables conversations to be heard clearly. Plus, built-in dual digital microphones can sense where voices come from to ensure they are picked up even in a noisy environment. All of this is packed into its 36mm form factor, which boasts up to 8GB of memory, maximum 2TB of hard drive storage, an optional DVD Super Multi optical drive and an optional Intel Core Pentium or Celeron processor. Each screen can also be tilted from -5 degrees to 25 degrees.
In addition, Acer showcased one of its new tablets designed specifically for gaming, dubbed the Predator 8.
Four speakers come with the tablet, which have been built into each of its four corners that jut out from its exterior in a bold red colouring.
An Intel Atom x7 and a 14nm-built chip with a quad-core processor powers the device, which can be clocked to 1.6GHz and up to 2.3GHz in Burst Mode. It features Intel HD Graphics, an eight-inch display and haptic feedback, meaning the device will shake to alert players when they have been shot in a game.
