Casual gaming, at times, is deemed rather too ‘casual’ (too undemanding or too laid-back) – that’s why, some techs offering ‘casual gaming’ tend to have lighter features (or say, inferior) when it comes to their devices. Casual, then, can sometimes be synonymous to ‘substandard.’
When it comes to gaming devices, it’s definitely difficult to experience such irony of just enjoying a casual game, but at the same time, be assured that a superior and top-of-the-line quality in gaming will be offered.
The coming of Acer Intel Optane-powered Nitro 5 is revolutionary. Lauded for its sophisticated styling and exceptional performance for casual gamers, the Nitro 5 is the first device to receive a speed boost from the Intel Optane Technology, assuring that casual gaming doesn’t need to have to be done with inferior features.
A truly immersive graphics experience
Apart from the increased responsiveness and load times, the Acer Intel Optane-powered Nitro 5 allows casual gamers to have a truly immersive graphics experience with faster rendering, finer textures, and dynamic lighting to attack ‘enemies’ hiding in even the darkest shadows – never allowing one to drop a frame or miss a beat while the game’s action unfolds.
Notably, the device is packed of NVMe PCIe solid-state storage with a memory of up to 512 GB – allowing for numerous apps and games installed while being ultra-fast at the same time!
Designed for supremacy
Basically, the design of the new Acer Intel Optane-powered Nitro 5 screams ‘gaming.’ Appearing bold and ultramodern, it’s surely pleasing to the eye for its laser texturing and downplayed matte hinge.
The crimson red hinge beautifully copes with the futuristic design of the backlit keyboard, while the 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display brings out a brilliant imagery with details so sharp. It can also be used to easily broadcast games live with Mixer, directly from the Game bar on Windows 10 simply by pressing the Windows key plus G.
Notably, its front-facing HD web camera allows its casual gamers to maneuver with the squad as they prepare to unleash terror on the competition, and celebrate together after winning the game.
Extra-awesome audio for responsive gaming
Gaming feels deficient with bad audio – because audio plays a significant role to speakers pick up on any would-be attackers entering the gaming scene. Teaming up to strengthen the sound quality of Acer Intel Optane-powered Nitro 5, Dolby Audio Premium and Acer True Harmony technology ensure that the device’s finely-tuned speakers would make its users extra-responsive in any case of attacks.
[The Acer Nitro 5 Intel Optane-powered laptops are now available starting at PHP 59,999.00 for Core i5+ and PHP 69,999.00 for Core i7+.]
If there is one thing we all love about Acer, it surely is its quality of being user-friendly. Remarkably, despite its very much known quality of being easy to use, the brand never allows itself to get stuck in the rut or stop making improvements with its techs. Centred on “enabling a world where hardware, software and services will fuse with one another to open up new possibilities for consumers and businesses alike,” Acer’s vision to provide user-friendliness and innovations is once again proved as it unfolds series of new technologies in the IFA 2018. Here are just some of Acer’s must-have new techs that we definitely should check out for:
For gaming: Ultra High-Res Monitors, Gaming Chair, and Gaming Gadgets
“[Our] gaming monitors have proven their quality and reliability as a top choice of pro-gamers and tournaments around the world.” – Victor Chien, President, Digital Display Business, Acer Inc.
Online gaming has been made better as Acer unveiled its new products under its Predator and Nitro gaming portfolio. With four new gaming monitors to offer, Acer also brings games to life with a next-level gaming chair and a complete set of gaming gadgets – basically, all gaming necessities a hardcore gamer could wish for.
Refreshed PC’s: For Families, Travellers, Freelancers, Students, and Workers
Acer gives its Aspire notebooks (Aspire 7, Aspire 5, and Aspire 3 series) and all-in-one PC (Aspire Z24) a revamp.
The Acer Ojo 500 Windows Mixed Reality headset
A year after releasing its very first Windows Mixed Reality headset (the revolutionary headset which delivers immersive virtual experiences), Acer updated its design and specs, bringing in the new Acer Ojo 500 – detachable, easier to use and to clean, and of course, packed with a better integrated audio system. This new design enables the lens and head strap to be individually detached, making the headset easy to store (in small bags) and of course, to clean, just like how a lens of a camera can be removed or cleaned. Coming either with a hard or soft head strap, the headset offers a snug yet comfortable fit – something unlike with its last year’s Windows Mixed Reality headset model. The soft head strap is washable, and the extra-large padding on the hard head strap enables the headset to fit securely and stay in place. Moreover, the mask can be flipped up, eliminating the need to remove the entire headset to do other things.
Acer Projectors for Better Prezos
Acer announced its new PL and SL series projectors — the Acer PL6610 (WUXGA), PL6510 (1080p), SL6610 (WUXGA)and the SL6510 (1080p) — powered by laser light sources, with the SL series providing short throw projection in tight spaces such as classrooms, and the PL series for customers who are less space conscious. Designed for those looking for a reliable, low maintenance projector solution, these projectors are optimized for large venues and demanding commercial and educational applications.
Acer’s Lightest Notebook – The Swift 5 Notebook
The Swift 5 (SF515-51T) notebook, the world’s lightest notebook PC with a 15-inch display, is ideal for discerning customers who want an envy-inducing PC. The Swift 5 delivers exceptional performance in an elegant chassis that weighs less than one kilogram. Notably, it can deliver responsive performance and up to 10 hours of battery life for day-to-night productivity. Running Windows 10, the new Swift 5 is a large-screen productivity powerhouse.
Truly, Acer’s quality of being user-friendly is one of a kind. But being user-friendly is merely the tip of the iceberg, as Acer has a lot more to offer – promising to open up more possibilities and opportunities for the people of our generation and the people of the future.

The leading tech and innovations company in the Philippines, Acer, continues to bring exciting promos as they have recently sealed a deal with Samsonite for an exciting Back-to-School promo.
This year, Acer Philippines’ back-to-school promo is especially made for millennials. Seeing the world’s biggest generation’s constant thirst for adventure and new experiences, the tech giant uses travelling as a motivation to inspire the youth to do well, whether in school or in their professions. Aptly called “#CarryOn”, the Promo encourages the youth to power through the hurdles they encounter in pursuit of their dreams and goals.
“If there’s one thing we’ve learned about millennials, it’s that they are very passionate individuals who are unstoppable if they are truly motivated,” shares Sue Ong-Lim, Acer Philippines’ Sales and Marketing Director. “Travel is, without a doubt, one of their strongest motivations. This is why we’ve partnered with Samsonite, a household name when it comes to travelling, to help us propel this cause forward. Hand in hand, we are hopeful that we will be able to not only motivate our millennials, but also reward them for their hard work by fueling their wanderlust.”
Befitting a movement that advocates trying out different things and enjoying new experiences, Acer Philippines’ Back-to-School Promo was launched through a travel-inspired event, where guests filled out a passport by completing various activities.
The affair also saw the debut of the #CarryOn video, which shows what the back-to-school campaign is all about. Directed by Ms. Irene Villamor, known for her works in Camp Sawi and Meet Me In St. Gallen, the film depicts how the youth turn to travelling as a way to cope and re-energize in the face of the stresses of their daily lives. The full video may be seen in the Acer Facebook Page.
“Travel inspires a different form of education – it makes you learn about new environments, exposes you to different cultures, and gives you a clearer view of the world,” shares Ciely Buenviaje, Country Head of Samsonite Philippines. “Samsonite could not be happier to be partnering with Acer in promoting such a holistic growth for the millennial generation.”
The Acer Philippines #CarryOn Back-to-School Promo will run until June 30, 2018, during which every purchase of qualified Acer and Predator laptops, Acer projectors, and Acer desktop will come with free Samsonite luggage.
For more information on the Promo, visit the Acer Philippines Facebook Page at www.facebook.com/AcerPH and the Acer Philippines website at www.acer.com.ph, and follow @acerphils on Twitter. You may also purchase online via http://ph-store.acer.com/.
If you’ve been waiting for JM De Guzman‘s great comeback, the tandem with the country’s most sought-after leading lady Jennylyn Mercado is everything we hoped for. We can recall that the two almost did a movie a couple of years ago, but due to some personal reasons, JM’s part was given to another promising actor.
Yes, it’s now or never. The two finally collides as they are set to lead the latest campaign of Acer Philippines and SM Supermalls holiday campaign, #MalayangPasko. The retail giant teamed up with the leading tech and innovations company in the world for this exciting promo.
Although details of the collaboration are not yet available to the public, it will come out really soon. So, watch out and stay tuned to Acer Philippines’ Facebook page. *winks*
Given the fact that customers have different interests and priorities, Acer Philippines have always believed that the best holiday present to give is the gift of choice. Dubbing the Promo as #MalayangPasko, the IT company has chosen to partner with The SM Store, the nation’s ultimate shopping destination known for their wide range of products, wholly communicated by their tagline “We’ve got it all for you”.
The catch is simple, every purchase of qualifying Windows-based Acer Aspire laptops, desktops, and All-in-ones will come with free The SM Store Exclusive Promotional Shopping Vouchers. Customers will get shopping vouchers worth PHP 5,000.00 for every purchase of Intel Core i7-powered laptops and desktops; PHP 3,000.00 for Intel Core i5-powered laptops and desktops; and PHP 1,000.00 for Intel Core i3-powered laptops and desktops, and projectors.
The launch attended by Jennylyn Mercado and JM De Guzman, was graced also by the notable names from Acer and SM; Sue Ong-Lim (Acer PH Sales and Marketing Director), and Chelo Monasterio (President, The SM Store).
An early Christmas treat, on the other hand, was given to the audience as Morissette Amon comes out and serenade us with angelic holiday songs.
Kita kita! Yes, we have finally found it. The one… that truly cares for our most precious laptops.
The two giants in their own craft, Acer and Salvatore Mann, have finally announced their partnership during their launch at the SM Mega Fashion Hall. Being the leading tech and innovations company, Acer took that leap of faith and teamed up with a men’s fashion brand.
In line with this, they got the hottest love team of 2017 by far, Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy Marquez. After conquering the big screen being the highest-grossing indie film to date, #AlEmpoy is now ready to take a much higher notch. They starred in a hugot short film made personally by Acer Philippines. It is a series of short episodes about how the story of AlEmpoy met, and how will they be able to find the way back in each other’s arms.
Titled #KasyaPa, the first instalment of the series was already published in Acer Philippines’ Facebook page. In just five days, the video now has more than seven million views! Imagine? With more than 200,000 reactions and 130,000 shares. Who would have thought that their chemistry will do wonders both for their career and for the people.
The two best suit the brand’s personality, being relatable and resilient. Meanwhile, as the Acer laptops reach a greater pasture, they found a bag that is truly functional and perfect for the brand–Salvatore Mann.
The Acer pre-holiday promo will run until October 15, 2017, during which any purchase of Acer laptops and projectors will earn buyers exclusive Salvatore Mann bags. Customers will get a duffel bag or backpack for every purchase of an Acer projector, an Acer Aspire i3-powered laptop or desktop; and both for every purchase of an i5-powered, i7-powered, or all-in-one Acer Aspire laptop or desktop. Additionally, exclusive Salvatore Mann sling bags await SM Advantage, SM Prestige, and BDO Rewards Card Holders. Salvatore Mann is exclusively available in the SM store.
