Acer's new Windows 8 Devices for the geek in me

Through my university days, I relied heavily on my trusty Acer laptop for my projects, assignments and presentations. I was really dependent on it and if the laptop ever failed on me, I'd freak out. I'm happy to report though, it didn't.

My Acer laptop is still sitting proudly next to me right now, as I type on my desktop. I rarely use it as much now, and even though its battery pack is exhausted, it's still in pretty good condition!

Now that my laptop has pretty much reached the end of it's lifespan, it's time to upgrade. I'm eyeing Acer's Aspire S7 Ultrabook series S7-391 with its 13"3 screen Windows 8 gorilla glass cover and trendy, sophisticated look.

I'm blown away by its 10 point touch display, equipped with Acer's new signature touch interface, Acer Ring, designed to launch by placing five fingers on the touch screen. This new interface provides a shortcut to browse the web, play music, view photos and even documents!

The new laptop boasts up to 12 hours of battery life with a Twin Air cooling system so you don't ever have to worry about your laptop overheating. How did Acer do this while maintaining the slim exterior yet tough enough to withstand the wear and tear of everyday use?

Aspire S7-391 will be on shelves with list prices from SGD$1,998

Another product which caught my eye is the Acer Aspire 7600U, but my desktop monitors are working fine now so... I suppose I'll just have to oogle from afar.

The 27-inch Aspire, perfect for watching movies or dramas on your computer, is ultra slim at just 35mm and can set a tile angle of 30 to 80 degrees! You can also swivel it vertically to use as an e-book reader display.

Plus!! It's a touch screen made especially to support the Windows 8 operating system from Microsoft! It supports up to 64 point simultaneous touch (which means 7 people can technically touch your screen at the same time, minus 6 fingers) and completely changes the interaction with your computer. Group project discussions are now easier to edit and control!

With current hype over Near Field Communication, Acer has integrated this technology into the desktop so you can pay for online purchases by bringing your mobile devices close to the screen's frame! The future is definitely here!

There are a ton of other features but I highlighted the few that I liked the best. Of course it has a dedicated graphics GPU, a NVIDIA 630M, a blu-ray disc drive, and even a TV tuner , and to top off the multimedia experience, surround sound speakers!

The Aspire 7600U is available on shelves with list price from SGD$2,799.

To show their dedication to supporting the new Windows 8 operating system from Microsoft, Acer will also be releasing a whole family of products for all budgets and uses, other than the two i've already mentioned above! Be sure to check the rest of their new products out at

Thank you Zerika and Natalie and Acer for the Red Ferrari Motion Wireless Laser Mouse! Not only is it sleek but it's also in my favourite colour hehe.

Here's a random picture of me with an anime character. Have been sick the past week so no mood to dress up urgh. Have a great weekend everyone!
