Acer introduces two impressive pieces of technology that focus on bringing budget computing to the forefront of the computer world. Specifically, the company introduced the Iconia Tab 10, as well as the C910 Chromebook – both of which feature some impressive hardware and features. Acer’s Iconia Tab 10 features a full HD display, as well as Zero Air Gap Technology. That means there is little space between the display and touch modules.
It’s very thin measuring in at just 10.2mm thick and also features a 1.5GHz MediaTek processor. Combine that with 2GB of RAM, as well as 32GB of onboard storage – and what you’re left with is an incredibly handsome device for the asking price. It’ll be running Android 4.4 KitKat and while that might seem like a downgrade for someone looking for the latest-and-greatest in tablet technology – the price, again, makes this a very formidable choice, especially at $249.
While the world was getting to know one device that Acer was putting out, the world was also learning about the more impressive device that the company would be setting out to explore. The C910 Chromebook is just the thing that the computer world was looking for. Again, focused on putting a fair market price on something that otherwise would cost quite a bit for the product that’s rolled up inside – this device delivers.
A 5th-gen Intel Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, as well as a 15.6-inch display means that Acer was not messing around with this Chromebook. In April, the C910 will launch and will cost just $499. What we’re seeing here, as a whole is Acer really identifying where people are spending most of their money. Consumers are looking for an affordable tablet and PC options that aren’t really available with some of the higher end devices out there that companies like Samsung, Apple, Motorolla, and Dell are producing. Meaning there is a lot of opportunity for growth in Acer’s space.
The company to this point has made its living off of devices that are affordable and functional, and while they may not come with the glitz and glamor of some of the larger names out there – they definitely deliver in enough areas that make them a formidable choice.
