Acer Launches Its First 4K Display Laptop Alongside Switch 12 Hybrid

Acer has introduced two new laptops, its first to feature a 4K display - the Aspire V Nitro Black Edition - and the successor to the convertible Aspire Switch 11 laptop - the Aspire Switch 12.

The Aspire V Nitro Black Edition with a 15.6-inch 4K display resolution will be available from Amazon, Microsoft, NewEgg and other online retailers starting this month in the US for a price tag of MSRP $1,499.99 (roughly Rs. 92,000). Also, the additional configurations featuring 15.6-inch and 17.3-inch full-HD displays will also be available starting $1,099.99 (roughly Rs. 67,500).

The Aspire V Nitro Black Edition laptop features a 15.6-inch 4K UHD (3840x2160 pixels) LED-backlit IPS display. The company says the laptop has been designed for graphic intensive applications, gaming, and video editing.

Powered by a 4th generation Intel Core i7-4710HQ processor (4 cores, 8 threads, 6MB cache, 2.5GHz base clock up to 3.5GHz with burst), the Aspire V Nitro Black Edition's graphics are handled by a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GTX860M GPU. The laptop features 16GB of RAM, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB hard drive.

Other features of the laptop include 4 built-in speakers powered by Dolby Digital Plus Home Theatre technology, and Acer's BYOC (Build Your Own Cloud) functionality.

Acer would also offer the new Aspire V Nitro Black Edition laptop owners a complimentary digital download code for Assassin's Creed Unity. The code however, will be available only with full-HD resolution screen models.


The firm also announced a new 5-in-1 convertible notebook (via Slashgear) that will reach the US and Canada in Q1 2015 called the Aspire Switch 12. Powered by an Intel Core M processor, which was launched in September specifically for hybrid tablets and 2-in-1 devices, the Aspire Switch 12 hybrid features a bundled detachable keyboard and integrated stand.

Featuring a 12.5-inch full-HD display with Corning Gorilla Glass, the Aspire Switch 12 can be used in five different modes: traditional desktop, notebook, display, tent, and pad (tablet). The models will be available in two vairiants based on their storage capacity - 60GB and 120GB.

The firm also states that the Aspire Switch 12 can run for 8 hours on a single charge. The Aspire Switch 12 also sports dual-front-facing speakers, HDMI port and USB 3.0 port. Acer Active Pen, an optional stylus for the tablet, is also available.
