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 exhibit features a “tunnel” which features four interactive zones designed around the exciting possibilities of consumer technology, particularly for business start-ups, education, gaming and entertainment, and creativity and at each zone, visitors will be able to experience how Lenovo is bringing the future closer for students, entrepreneurs, designers and gamers through its innovations. These include the cutting-edge and award-winning Yoga Family of 2-in-1 convertibles, its Thin & Light series of sleek and stylish laptops, and its Legion Family of powerful gaming products.
It is also an avenue for the visitors to design share their own “dream device of the future” to redeem a special gift. They can immerse themselves in a 3D painting, creating fun mementos to enjoy and share with their friends.
Earlier this month, Lenovo unveiled #CitizensOfTMRW with the launch of a special microsite – citizensoftmrw.com – which allows visitors to become a “citizen of tomorrow” by imagining, assembling and sharing their dream device of the future through a simple and quick process.
Those who successfully uploaded and shared their creations received a “digital passport” to the experience pop-up store, which gave them an early preview of the campaign, together with a chance to redeem exclusive prizes.

Students these days have ditched old-school notebooks in favor of multitasking laptops. In fact, many schools and universities even require students to bring laptops to class.
However, a new study showed that bringing such device to class may do more harm than good.
While laptops make it easier for students to take down notes, write papers, gather information and learn how to program, a study carried out by researchers at Michigan State University showed that laptop, which is a source of distraction for the user as well as those sitting nearby, can actually lead to lower grades.
Professor Susan Ravizza and a team of researchers tracked internet use of students in a big introductory psychology course. To monitor internet use, they used proxy servers that recorded all internet requests that students made during class. This allowed researchers to identify what websites students were visiting during class.
The results showed that more than one-third of the class time was spent on using the Internet for non-academic activities.
They then calculated each student’s internet use and compared it to their final exam grade. They ruled out factors such as intelligence, motivation and student’s interest.
Based on their findings, students who used the Internet more during class had lower scores in the final exam. Ravizza concluded that internet surfing for non-academic purposes is linked to lower grades.
Surprisingly, they also discovered that the use of the Internet for academic purposes or class-related information was not associated with higher scores in the final exam.
A previous study has concluded that taking notes using the laptop was less effective to writing them by hand.
