Acer has just unveiled a series of new devices running Windows 10 ahead of Computex 2016, when the company will present them for the first time.
A total of three devices have been unveiled today, and they’re supposed to tackle the budget category with competitive prices, as the more affordable will be available for no more than $199 in the United States.
Acer Switch One 10
This is the cheapest model of the newly launched series and comes in the form of a convertible that features a detachable keyboard, so it can be used as either a laptop or a tablet.
It comes with a 10-inch screen with IPS technology, “the latest quad-core Intel Atom processors” (neither Microsoft nor Acer has disclosed the CPU available on the device), built-in fingerprint reader for Windows Hello support, 8 hours of battery life, and dual camera for video calls.
Acer Switch One 10 will go on sale in the United States in Metallic Gray and will cost only $199.
Acer Switch V 10
The V 10 is the upgraded model that packs a 10.1-inch display, and has a longer battery life (up to 9 hours according to Microsoft), USB Type-C port for charging, and a fingerprint reader for Windows Hello.
The laptop features Acer’s new Snap Hinge latch-less magnetic design, so it can be used as a tablet too. The device will come with a Precision Touchpad to let you make the most of Windows 10, and a Dual Camera system for video calls and easy photo shooting.
It’ll be offered in multiple colors, including Pearl White, Shale Black, Coral Red, Peacock Blue and Navy Blue, and will go on sale later this year in North America for $249.
Acer TravelMate P2 Series
This is the most advanced model of the new series and comes with an Intel 6-generation core CPU, NVIDIA GeForce 940M, and DDR4 memory, but the exact specs, such as the amount of RAM, haven’t been disclosed. The device will be available in two versions, with a 14- and a 15.6-inch screen.
The laptop will also boast a built-in fingerprint reader and feature a full HD LED display, TPM 2.0 for hardware-based encryption keys, and two stereo speakers for better audio quality.
North America will once again be the only market getting it later this year, with prices starting at $599.
