Among other novelties, the company showed in New York first units of the new series called Concept D.
Above all, they should be aimed at users who process images professionally and who are important for displays with high contrasts and high color fidelity, emphasized Acer boss Jason Chen. “The demands on the devices have changed, the hardware requirements have increased significantly in many areas,” said Wilfried Thom, who is responsible for business in Western Europe at Acer.
Both the Concept D5 (from 1700 Euro) and the D7 and the D9, available from June onwards, feature displays with Ultra HD resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels), which cover 100% of the Adobe RGB color space and for the color system Pantone are certified.
Videos in 6K and pen operation
On the D9, the 17.3-inch display, which has been prepared for pen operation, is completely freely rotatable and adjustable on a hinge. The 15.6-inch D7 should provide enough power to process and render videos in 6K resolution in real time. Prices and availabilities for the D7 and the D9 called Acer initially.
Among the newcomers include business notebooks of the Travelmate P6 series in impact-resistant cases, which are just under 1.7 inches thick and about 1.1 kilograms heavy (from 1200 euros). Also new is the gaming laptop Predator Helios 700, in which the keyboard, wrist rest and touchpad can be pulled out a bit (from 2500 Euro). According to the manufacturer, this design trick in a convertible manner leads to more fresh air for cooling in the housing.
