Acer says All-in-Onsies is the way to go

By

Taiwanese PC maker Acer, has released two new All-in-One (AiO), Windows 8.1 based PCs hastening its move from the traditional desktop, black box.

AiO make sense – manufactured using the same technologies and assembly techniques as tablets and notebooks, it saves expensive labour costs associated with traditional desktops.

The two 23” touch models are the U5-620 starting at A$1599 (left image) and the Z3-615 starting at $1399 (right image).

The U5-620 is a premium product with a new 1080p HD IPS screen, a fingerprint resistant coating that reduces ‘smear’, and a ‘one finger’ tilt mechanism allows it to lie almost flat. It is available with an Intel 4th generation Core i3, i5, or i7, up to 16GB RAM, and 1TB hybrid hard disk. It has a DVD/RW (optional Blu-ray), optional Nvidia GTX 850M graphics processor, HDMI, USB 3.0, SD card slot, dual microphones using Acer Purified technology, and a HD front camera. All this is packed into 35mm thick.

The Z3-615 has an ‘Apple-like’ stand, optional touch, 23” 1080p HD LCD screen, and a choice of i3, i5, or i7 processors. To keep costs down 4GB RAM and a 500TB hard disk is standard and it is just over 50mm thick.

Comment

Expect to see a lot more new products from Acer in its attempt to regain market share – currently its global number four having lost ground to the up and coming Lenovo.

It is betting that tablets, hybrids, and All-in-Ones will lead the charge.

It recently announced new colourful 10.1”, Windows 8.1, ‘Switch’ tablet with a magnetic hinge that allows its screen to detach and snap into place quickly and securely. The system can operate in four modes: laptop mode, tablet mode, display mode (facing out the back) and tent mode.

 

 

 

 

It has also announced a new Aspire E series notebooks that come in 11 colours. It also makes Android tablets and Chrome Books.
