Earlier Acer unveiled a couple of new tablets but it seems that that is not all the Taiwanese company has up their sleeves as they have recently taken the wrap off several new computing devices as well. These new devices come in the form of the Acer Aspire Switch 10, the Acer Aspire U5, the Acer C720P Chromebook, and the Acer Aspire E11.
Starting with the Aspire Switch 10, this is a convertible laptop meaning that it has the ability to switch from being a laptop to a tablet, simply by disconnecting the display and using it as a tablet. The display of the device can also be reverse-attached to the keyboard dock, thus transforming the dock into a kick stand of sorts. The device will sport an Intel Atom quad-core processor with 2GB of RAM, a 64GB SSD (500GB mechanical HDD is optional), and a 10-inch HD display.
Next up is the Aspire U5 which is an all-in-one desktop system. The Aspire U5 will feature a 20-inch Full HD display and comes with a LayFlat design, which basically means that the device has the ability to lie down flat, thus transforming it into a huge touchscreen display. It will sport a fourth-gen Intel Core processor with NVIDIA GeForce GPUs. Then there is also the C720P which is Acer’s Chromebook device. The chassis of the C720P will remain the same as its predecessor but will be getting a bump in processor to an Intel Core i3, but should remain the same otherwise.
Last but not least is the Acer Aspire E11. This laptop will come in a variety of sizes ranging from 11-inches up to 15-inches, with users being able to choose between HD and Full HD displays. The E11 series will also come with either Intel Pentium or Celeron processors, sport a thin profile with a fanless cooling design, have a battery life of up to 7 hours, and will come in a variety of different colors. The Aspire E11 series will start at $299 and is expected to be made available in June. As for the Aspire Switch 10, it will be priced at $379 and will go on sale in May, while the Aspire U5 will be available in June for $999.
