Acer Unleashes New Devices At CES 2016
Acer, one of the most reputable brands in the world of personal computing, has strongly established its name with its strong product lineup that features gorgeous designs and capable hardware. The company today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas has announced a new wave of devices designed for the masses: a brand new Chrome desktop, an ultra portable Chromebook and a tablet presented at a very appealing price tag.
The Acer Iconia One 8 is an affordable 8-inch slate with a 720p display. It runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, and it's powered by a MediaTek chipset with a quad-core processor paired with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. Acer says that the Iconia One 8 will come with a Kids Center app to deliver tailored, prescreened content suitable for children, as well as a user-friendly interface.
On the other hand, Acer also added a new model in its Chromebook 11 lineup, the CB-131. It boasts an 11.6-inch nonglare ComfyView display with a pixel density of 135ppi, up to nine hours of battery life, and a suite of connectivity such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, USB 3.0, USB 2.0, SD card reader and HDMI. It also features a premium nano-imprinted cover that fashions the new Chromebook 11 with high-end aesthetics.
"Acer's position in the Chromebook market is unparalleled because we offer the range of Chromebook products that our customers want--including larger 15-inch displays and convertible models," said Jerry Kao, president of Acer Notebook Business Group.
Meanwhile, Acer's Chrome desktop, the Chromebase 24, is an All-in-One that comes with a 23.8-inch full HD IPS display. It is also marked as the first Chrome OS desktop that is powered with an Intel Core processor. Although Acer didn't specify which Intel chip it features, the company did say that the All-in-One will come with a RAM of up to 8GB. It also comes with 801.11ac Wi-Fi and Gigabit LAN to deliver blistering fast network speeds.
