IFA 2018: Acer unveils new Predator Triton, Aspire, Chromebook, Swift notebooks

The Acer Predator Triton 900 has a UHD panel that can be flipped around, which supports a native resolution of up to 4Km with touchscreen support and NVIDIA G-Sync. While a little toward the bulky region, the Predator Triton equips the Aeroblade 3D fans, a switchable trackpad and full-sized backlit mechanical keyboard.

At the IFA 2018 tech show in Berlin, Acer has introduced a new bunch of hardware which includes new notebooks, gaming laptops, 2-in-ones and other accessories. Amongst the new range of products is the flagship Predator Triton 900 gaming laptop, the Swift 7 ultrabook, the Chromebook 514, upgraded Aspire laptops, the OJO Mixed Reality headset and a Predator Thronos gaming chair.

Starting off with the Predator Triton 900 gaming laptop, it looks like Acer has been anticipating on experimenting its product lineup with a flagship device that looks a behaves quite different to a traditional portable PC. There’s a UHD panel that can be flipped around however you want it to be, which supports a native resolution of up to 4Km with touchscreen support and NVIDIA G-Sync. While a little toward the bulky region, the Predator Triton equips the Aeroblade 3D fans, a switchable trackpad and full-sized backlit mechanical keyboard.

Acer Swift 7

Acer has also introduced the world’s thinnest Swift 7 laptop with a bezel-less display that spans for a screen-to-body ratio of 92 percent. Weighing in at just under 1kg, the ultrabook comes with a 14-inch display tucked under a magnesium material. The bezels around the display amount to a maximum of 4.27mm on the thickest side and the same can be said about the overall thickness of the laptop which takes up 0.35-inch.

Acer Chromebook 514

There’s a new Chromebook 514 laptop which pushes the cheapness of a Chromebook by bringing a stronger aluminium chassis and a Gorilla Glass trackpad to a regular ChromeOS running device. Acer’s Chromebook 514 features a 14-inch Full HD display with a 12-hour battery, HDR webcam, touchscreen and USB-C connectivity but will run on a relatively slower processor to be made adorable as well.

The new Acer Aspire lineup consists of the Aspire 7, Aspire 5, Aspire 3 and Aspire Z 24 AIO, all of which will run on Windows 10. The most expensive of the bunch will come at a starting price of $899 (approx. Rs 64,000) and will come in an all-in-one form factor. Even so, the Acer lineup will be powered by 8th gen Intel Core i7+ processors, up to 32GB of Intel Optane memory, NVIDIA GeForce MX150 and 23.8 inch Full HD IPS display with touchscreen support and 178-degree viewing angle.

Acer OJO 500 Mixed Reality Headset

Acer’s IFA press conference also revealed the new OJO 500 Windows Mixed Reality headset which comes with a detachable dead strap and lens, in order to make it easy for it to be stored and cleaned regularly. There’s a new integrated audio system which no longer needs users to connect a headphone and thus produces sound right next to a user’s ears. The device will require a compatible Windows 10 PC and comes bundled with Bluetooth motion controllers, a windows 10 button, a touchpad and grab button for interacting with things in the mixed reality. The Acer OJO 500 will be available at an upwards of $399 (approx. Rs28,200).

Acer Predator Thronos

Amongst all the out-of-the-world ideas being showcased at the IFA 2018 show, Acer has also displayed the Predator Thronos gaming chair which is less a piece of furniture but more like a whole gaming room. The Thronos has a gamer-centric seat that swivels all the way to 140 degrees along with the three 27-inch monitors that it has a slot for. There’s a footrest, vibration motors for added gaming experience and the whole thing lights up like a thing from the future.
