The Computex 2012 trade conference in Taipei witnessed Acer unveil a bevy of devices running Microsoft's forthcoming Windows 8 operating system, with the impressive new lineup boasting top to bottom touch support as well as an evident focus on flexibility.
The Windows 8-enabled devices introduced by Acer at the conference included a couple of Aspire S7 series of ultrabooks --- a 13-inch model and an 11.6-inch model; both of which have aluminum unibody construction and full HD screens that are capable of folding back 180 degrees so as to allow the system to lie flat.
Other than the new ultrabooks, Acer also unveiled its Windows 8-based tablets which included: the Iconia W700, with 11.6-inch full HD touch screen, and the Iconia W510, featuring a 10.1-inch touch screen and the advantage of rotating the device 295 degrees.
While the W700 features a cradle which offers the benefit of several viewing angles and has three USB 3.0 ports for expansion; the W510 is ideal for making presentations, surfing the Internet, or watching video. The tablet also comes with a detachable keyboard dock whichg can be connected to it.
Finally, in addition to the new line of Windows 8-enabled ultrabooks and tablets, Acer also took the wraps off two all-in-one desktops running the new Windows version: the 27-inch Aspire 7600U and the 23-inch Aspire 5600U, the costs of which begin at $1599 and $999 respectively.
