Acer recently announced two new Windows 10 devices, the Aspire R 14 convertible notebook and the Aspire Z3-700 portable all-in-one PC. Joining Acer’s extensive Windows 10 device portfolio, both of the new innovative Windows 10 devices will change how people interact and connect with what’s important in their world.
Both devices with dual-digital microphones feature Acer Purified.Voice with enhanced digital signal processing (DSP) that cancel background noise and improve speech accuracy, allowing people to have an optimized Cortana experience.
For a better Windows 10 audio and visual experience, the Aspire R 14 and Aspire Z3-700 feature Acer TrueHarmony Plus technology with Dolby Audio, providing powerful audio with immersive surround. Both devices also ship with Acer BluelightShield, with four professionally tuned modes to choose from, which can effectively reduce eye strain by reducing blue light emission from the screen.
Aspire R 14
The Aspire R 14 has evolved with a new hairline-brush metallic finish, diamond-cut edge design, and a thinner 360-degree dual torque hinge for incredible flexibility between four usage modes. When paired with Continuum, this helps people switch easily between PC and tablet mode. People can maximize productivity with the most efficient method of keyboard input in classic Laptop mode, and switch to Display mode by hiding the keyboard at the back or laying 180 degrees flat, ideal for collaborating, sharing and entertainment. Converting to Tent mode gives users the option to use in a confined space, while a masterfully-crafted magnet design allows the device to be fully converted into Tablet mode—without any gaps whatsoever.
At only 18.5mm thin and weighing in at just 1.9kg, the Aspire R 14 incorporates sixth-generation Intel Core processors, up to 8GB DDR3L system memory, and SSD storage for powerful performance both at home or on the go. For faster connection speeds, the new Aspire R 14 includes MU-MIMO wireless technology, allowing up to three times faster downloads compared to other 802.11ac products, especially in crowded networks.
The new Aspire Z3-700 all-in-one PC features a built-in battery that will last for five hours, allowing consumers to perform desktop productivity or entertainment tasks anywhere around the house. The 17.3-inch Aspire Z3-700 has a chassis of just 15.6mm slim and 2kg light, while two kick stands allow it to stand or lay flat like a jumbo tablet.
Powered by Intel Pentium or Celeron processors, up to 8GB of DDR3L system memory, and SSD or HDD storage options , the Aspire Z3-700 provides ample performance for infotainment tasks. It features a Full HD (1,920 x 1,080) 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen, which also supports input via a dedicated stylus for even more precise control.
