Acer's having a busy day at the CES 2019 as they unveiled three new  products in their long list of items: The All-New Swift 7, gaming notebook convertible Predator Triton 900, and their very first  Chromebook with an AMD processor, The Acer Chromebook 315. Find out what they have to offer in their latest tech!

Acer Swift 7

An Honoree of the CES 2019 Innovation Award, there's plenty to look at with the Acer Swift 7. Its ultra-narrow bezels with Corning ® Gorilla ® Glass 6 touch display gives it an impressive 92 percent screen-to-body ratio. Powered by Windows 10, the Swift 7 is also really light at 890 grams, which makes it perfect for professionals who need to carry their notebooks throughout the day.

It also comes with the latest 8th Gen Intel ® Core™ processors which delivers responsive performance and can run up to 10 hours of battery life in a quiet, reliable fanless design. It has dual USB Type-C ports that support Thunderbolt™ 3, USB 3.1, DisplayPort 1.2 to connect more devices.

There are two colours to look out for: Starfield Black and Moonstone White. It will be available in North America in May, starting at $1,699 (around RM7000).

Predator Triton 900

Acer actually unveiled two new Windows 10 Gaming notebooks: the Predator Triton 900 and the Predator Triton 500. The notebooks are a 15-inch all-metal gaming powerhouse measuring just 17.9 mm thin that combines new, functional designs with powerful internals that rival gaming desktops. 

Special focus is given to the Predator Triton 900 due to its one-of-a-kind flipping screen which allows for multiple gaming scenarios and better ergonomics. Meanwhile the Triton 500 offers superb gaming performance in a slimmer, all-metal body for gamers on the go. 

The notebooks will also feature the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU which will have breakthrough technologies including real time ray tracing and next-gen, and ultra-fast GDDR6 memory. With all this gamers can confidently choose the Predator Triton 900 for a robust, feature-rich gaming platform and more. 

You can also expect a PredatorSense mobile app later this year that will give users control of the Predator PC from their very own smartphone. Users can control settings for overclocking, fan speeds, lighting, as well as audio modes. Additionally, users can view and set customised macro key sets for physical hotkeys. The Triton 900 also comes with support for Predator RGB Assault, an app for League of Legends gamers, which shows pre-defined keyboard lighting effects while champions cast their abilities. 

The Predator Triton 900 will be available in North America in March with prices starting at US$3,999 (around RM16,500)

Acer Chromebook 315

Acer introduces its first Chromebook that's powered by AMD A-series processors with Radeon graphics with the Acer Chromebook 315. Boasting a 15.6 inch IPS display with up to 10 hours of all-day battery life for web browsing, office applications and even online gaming, there's plenty to do with this Chromebook. 

The Chromebook comes with a clear and vibrant 15.6-inch Full HD 1920 x 1080 display that is large enough for opening browsers side-by-side, viewing streaming video in sharp detail, and playing web games. Audio is also clear and crisp thanks to its two full-sized upward-facing speakers that flank the keyboard. The speakers support high-definition audio and deliver enhanced volume and audio range.  

Users can also expect excellent connectivity and portability as the Chromebook comes with two USB 3.1 Type-C ports — one on each side — making charging, data transfers and display connections convenient. 

The Chromebook 315 will be available in North America in February, starting at $279.99 (around RM1200)
