At Acer, we are dedicated to explore beyond limits in design and development of new devices to provide a greater and more satisfying new generation computing options for our modern day explorers.”

Speaking at the launch, Amrita Sapre, Windows Product Group Manager of Microsoft Malaysia said, “Windows 8 has been reimagined to bring consumers a no-compromise, immersive and deeply personalized experience. This truly comes to life in the partnership between Microsoft and Acer, with the launch of their devices today. Acer remains a valued partner to Microsoft as we transform lives through the power of computing technology.”

“Our life experiences are defined by our senses - by what we see, hear and touch. These human senses are also at the foundation of Intel's vision for the Ultrabook to deliver a no-compromise, must-have computing experience and we congratulate Acer on the launch of its new touch enabled product range,” said Prakash Mallya, Country Manager of Intel Malaysia.  “Combined with the increased responsiveness of Intel’s 3rd generation Core processor with the new Windows® 8 operating system, the new Acer range of products will provide great computing experience for users.”
The Acer Aspire S7 series of Ultrabook is available in two sizes: 13.3-inch and 11.6-inch. Both feature full HD (1920 x 1080) touch screens with electroluminescent backlit keyboard that offer a gentler glow than LED backlit keyboard, automatically activating and adjusting its brightness based on ambient lighting. The Acer Twin Air cooling system (pending patent) extends the battery life and keeps the S7 comfortable to use.

One of the most striking design elements of the 13.3-inch Aspire S7 is the white scratch-resistant Gorilla® Glass 2 structure. The Gorilla Glass structure enables a mere 11.9mm thickness with the strength to handle the impact of daily use. This Aspire S7 model also features a dual torque hinge on the lid to create the ideal amount of resistance for touch control. Its touch-enabled screen can be laid back flat at 180 degrees and the image orientation reverses for easy touch-and-show sharing.
The 10.1-inch Acer ICONIA Tab W510 offers tri-mode usability: “touch, type and view”, allowing content creation and consumption in a tablet, in both productivity and presentation mode. It can be connected to a detachable keyboard when typing is preferred with full travel keys for content creation (productivity mode) and can be turned 295 degrees for presentation or video viewing (presentation mode). The W510 can last from 9 to 18 hours when connected to the detachable keyboard docking as the second battery.

The 11.6-inch Acer ICONIA Tab W700 cradle combo is the only Intel Core™ tablet in the market, putting incredible power, true full HD and instant productivity at users’ fingertips. The 10-point touch control, ultra-responsive and powerful tablet is flexible thanks to the multi-position dock that allows it to be positioned perfectly for landscape or portrait mode for easy browsing, sharing, control and keyboard productivity.
The 27-inch new Acer Aspire 7600U All-in-one (AIO) is of minimalist design running on Windows® 8 and is powered by the 3rd Generation Intel Core processor. The 1920 x 1080 screen supports up to 10-point simultaneous touch which enables multiple users at one-go. It can be viewed at an angle from 0 to 90 degrees and swivels at four sides when it is flat on the table.

The ergonomic edge-to-edge touch designed Acer Aspire 5600U AIO is the slimmest 23-inch PC and can be tilted from 30 to 80 degrees. The full HD (1920 x 1080) screen display offers interactive hand gesture feature to play, control or select.  
In conjunction with this exciting launch, Acer is pleased to announce its collaboration with Sunway Group through the Sunway Lifestyle app (downloadable from Windows Store) to run a contest especially for Acer customers.
