Acer may not be as familiar a name these days as it once was, but that doesn’t mean the company doesn’t have some impressive hardware to offer. And that became clearer than ever at CES when Acer announced three new laptops, the Acer Nitro 16, Nitro 17, and Swift Go 14. Each is powered by new AMD Ryzen mobile processors and promises excellent performance.
April 22nd is Earth Day, which marks the 52nd anniversary of the birth of the modern environmental movement. If you’re of the “reduce, reuse, and recycle” mindset (as I hope you are), and you’re in the market for a new laptop, you might want to look at the Acer Aspire Vero notebook line. The Aspire Vero uses 30% post-consumer recycled (PCR) plastics in its chassis, 50% PCR plastics in its keyboard caps, comes in 100% recyclable packaging, and is held together with standard screws for easy disassembly when it’s time for repairs, upgrades, and eventual recycling.
The ongoing pandemic has forced a shift in education that probably would have occurred anyway but has been profoundly accelerated. It’s no longer optional for kids to have access to a Chromebook or similar device; they’re becoming as necessary for education as a pen and spiral notebook. This need inspires new market innovations by companies like Acer, who are rolling out four new educational Chromebooks designed to fit various students’ (and teachers’) needs!

Laptops and tablets get all the attention, but for long-haul working and gaming, you want a monitor. 10-15″ screens are great for when you’re on the go, but when you’re home, you can settle into the true luxury you get from 27″+ screens, insanely high definitions, and a screen refresh rate that makes you the absolute envy of Spider Solitaire players everywhere. If that sounds good to you, then read on for Acer‘s updated gaming monitors, the Predator XB273U NX, Predator XB323QK NV, and the Nitro XV282K!

It feels like we’ve been hearing about 5G forever, but it’s for-real happening, and we’re going to be getting all sorts of awesome devices zipping YouTube to us faster than ever.

The best part about laptops is the portability — you can work from your desk, your couch, and (pre-COVID) the local coffeehouse. Of course, the most crucial part of portability is that your laptop is light and not dependent on an outlet. Acer has got both covered with new Swift laptops running the Intel Evo platform.
