Acer is soon releasing two new computers: the Aspire R14 notebook, and the Aspire Z3-700 portable all-in-one PC.


The R14 has a convertible screen, meaning it can fold over to convert the notebook into a tablet. It can also turn 180 degrees. Some specs and info:




  • 18.5mm thickness
  • Weighs 3.5lbs
  • Intel 6-th gen CPU
  • 8GB RAM (max)
  • Solid state drive
  • MU-MIMO wireless technology (faster downloads "especially on crowded networks")
  • $699


The Aspire Z3-700, meanwhile, is "designed for productivity and entertainment tasks" but can work as a tablet or notebook. Specs and info:




  • Intel Pentium or Celeron CPU
  • 8GB RAM (max)
  • SSD or HDD
  • 1080p touchscreen
  • Stylus
  • €599 ($680)


Both integrate Acer's Bluelight technology (basically Flux, for those familiar), and are said to feature "top-of-the-line" audio to make the most of Cortana.


The R4 launches late October; the Z3-700 launches late 2015.
