Acer gears up for Windows 7 launch

Acer gears up for Windows 7 launch

The vendor has taken the wrappers of four touch compatible products using the soon-to-be released operating system

Acer has revealed its first touch compatible products for the Windows 7 operating system.

At a press event in Sydney, the vendor demonstrated its new multi-touch range, all fitting into different product segments. The crown jewel of Acer’s Touch the Future Now category is the Aspire Z5610, an all-in-one PC with a 23-inch screen.

Acer also flaunted its first touch activated 23-inch LCD high-definition monitor along with the Aspire Timeline 1820PT netbook and the Aspire 5738PG notebook.

The vendor also showed off its 3D display notebook capable of ad-hoc conversion of 2D movies and images. It uses a standard 2D to 3D manipulation technology, requiring a pair of complementary 3D glasses to experience the visual effects. While the technology is not groundbreaking, Acer expects the relatively low price tag to drive uptake, with the device priced under $2000.

With pre-loaded Windows 7 onboard, the products will be available to distributors and retailers around the operating system’s October 22 launch date.

Acer also has launched its diminutive Veriton Hornet N260G nettop nationally. The unit boasts a 1 litre form factor and is mountable on the back of a monitor.
