ConceptD - Acer’s new series of powerful devices for creators

ConceptD - Acer’s new series of powerful devices for creators”

All of this is accessed through a 17.3-inch, 4K UHD touch display built on a hinge that allows it to flip, rotate and extend in a way similar to the Microsoft Surface Studio.

The Taiwanese company unveiled three new laptops, two new desktops, a pair of new PC monitors, and a VR headset on Thursday at its annual global launch event at Brooklyn Navy Yard, a gritty post-industrial nexus for the creative pros who Acer hopes will buy these new devices.

The Predator Helios 300 is Acer's mid-range gaming laptop, which now gets a new design.

Acer has rolled out a new line of notebooks, monitors, and desktops that it is aiming at content creators called ConceptD.

The Predator Helios 700 will be launching later this month, but just as that high-end hardware suggests, it'll cost a pretty penny when it arrives.

Acer's "midrange" Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop is also based around a Full HD IPS 144Hz 3ms display, this time available in 15.6- or 17.3 inches.

The big highlight feature of the Acer gaming laptop though is the HyperDrift keyboard, which slides outwards, thereby revealing two additional air intakes and a glass panel, which gives you a peek at the five heat-pipes inside. In terms of specifications, the laptop is basically an Acer gaming laptop, minus the gaming, with a 9th Gen Intel Core i9 processor, up to 32GB of RAM, an RTX 2080 GPU, and either 512GB or 1TB of NVMe SSD storage.

Acer also updated its Nitro and Helios gaming notebook range. It has a Max-Q version of the Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 and a decent port selection consisting out of a USB-C, one USB 3.1, an HDMI 2.0, and a mini DisplayPort 1.4. These are stylish yet modern and powerful PCs and components. The RAM and storage options are the same as of the ConceptD 9. Jerry Kao, Co-COO, Acer Inc explained "as the foundation of a full line of creator products, we've designed PCs with high-performance processors and graphics that can handle extreme workloads, and put them inside quiet, minimalist designs to inspire creators to unleash their creativity". We have seen this hinge mechanism used previously by Acer since the R-Series convertibles it debuted back in 2014. These offer more traditional laptop designs, feature 15.6-inch Ultra-High Definition display with Pantone Validation. The ConceptD 5 is a slim and light notebook that has up to 8th gen Core i7 processor with Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics.

When it comes to the pricing of the devices, the Predator Orion 5000 gaming desktop will be available in North America in April starting at United States dollars 1,199.99 (approx Rs 83,000).

The ConceptD 9 will be available in North America in June starting at $4,999 (about £3,830, AU$7,045).

The Conecpt9 will be the flagship of the new line-up and according to Acer, it is specifically designed for drawing and 3D works. The ConceptD 500, however, is powered by latest Intel Core processor and up to Nvidia Quadro RTX400 graphics chip. AnandTech got a nice shot of the two desktop workstations, three mobile workstations, two professional monitors and the Windows Mixed Reality headset that now represent this new brand.
