Acer launches built-for-creators ConceptD 9

At its Next@Acer Conference late last week, Acer launched a new line of products it’s targeting to creators called the ConceptD. One of the newest products here is the ConceptD 9 Creator Laptop. Its design is reminiscent of the Predator Triton 900, which was launched earlier this year at CES 2019. It has Acer’s Ezel Aero hinge that lets you pull the 17.3-inch screen closer to you over the keyboard. Acer partnered with IF Design to create products that focused on four principles: accurate colour reproduction, powerful performance, silent fans, and attractive design.

To fulfill this, the ConceptD 9 is Pantone validated, supports 100 percent of the Adobe RGB colour gamut, and has DetalE colour accuracy rating of less than one (the closer this number to zero is, the better). This allows graphic designers and photo editors to get colour accurate screen that can reproduce a wide variety of colours. It can run on up to the ninth-generation Intel Core i9 processor and an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 card. As expected it’s going to cost a lot at US$4,999 (around CA$6,600) and it’s expected to come out in June. We don’t have word if this will be making its way here yet.

The new Acer Predator Helios 700 comes with a transforming keyboard and trackpad

The Verge

One of the new machines Acer launched at Next@Acer is the Predator Helios 700. This larger version of the Helios 300 features a keyboard and trackpad that slides forward towards the user. The trackpad can then also be tilted down to form a palm rest. Acer introduces this new “HyperDrift keyboard,” which adds an interesting design element but also exposes the fans to boost performance and cooling. The keys are new “MagForce keys” that come with linear switches. Acer claims these are more precise than traditional models.

As the flagship of the Helios line, this laptop comes with a 17.3-inch 1080p display, 9th-gen Intel Core i9 processor, and either the NIVDIA GeForce RTX 2080 or 2070 GPUs (not the Max-Q design). You can configure this up to 64GB of RAM and up 1TB SSD or 2TB hard drive. This is a massive machine though at 1.64 inches thick and weighing 9.9 pounds.

Acer refreshes Nitro 7 with beefier specs, thinner form factor

It’s thin but that doesn’t mean it isn’t any less powerful. Acer refreshes its Nitro 7 gaming laptop to get 9th-gen Intel Core processors and premium NVIDIA GeForce graphics. It comes in a much thinner frame this time at 19.9mm thin. Its brushed metal exterior provides that sleek, cool look to it. It has a 15.6-inch 1080p IPS panel with a 144Hz refresh rate and 3ms response. To avoid overheating as you game hard, you get dual fans, CoolBoost tech, and dual exhaust port. It has two slots available for M.2 Gen 3x4 PCIe SSDs and up to 2TB of HDD storage. You can configure it to have up to 32GB of RAM. Pricing for the Acer Nitro 7 starts at US$999.9 (around CA$1,300).

The new Acer TravelMate P6 promises a 20-hour battery life

Acer is giving mobile workers a sturdy new laptop to work with. The TravelMate P6 promises solid performance and a really long battery life. The company is pegging this will have a 20-hour battery life. It’s covered in magnesium alloy and remains non-descript, which is ideal for more buttoned-up corporate settings. It’s a 14-inch machine that’s just 0.65 inches thick. And with MIL-SPEC certification, it can handle a bit of roughing up as you lug it around.

When it comes to security, it has an integrated fingerprint reader and web cam with built-in shutter. Aside from an exceptionally long battery life, you can charge it up to 50 percent in 20 minutes or reach 100 percent in around two hours.
