Acer too introduced a number of products at the CES this year. First of all, Acer introduced Swift 7 (SF714-52T) which looks like it does not have a bezel, thus has a 92% screen-to-body ratio, having been made with magnesium-lithium and magnesium-aluminum alloys, it weighs only two pounds and it provides balanced support to the keyboard while typing. It runs on the 8th Generation Intel Core i7-8500Y processor and comes with expandable memory up to 512 GB of fast PCIe SSD storage and with an LPDDR3 RAM up to 16 GB. There are two USB Type-C ports which support supporting Thunderbolt 3, USB 3.1 Generation 2. A backlit keyboard, 1.1 mm of travel distance, the coming Gorilla Glass touchpad, and a fingerprint reader for logging in make this an instant object of desire to tech enthusiasts.
Two gaming notebooks, the Acer Predator Triton 900 and the Predator Triton 500 have also been announced at the CES. Both of them come with Acer’s advanced cooling system and Coolboost technology. The Predator Triton 900 features a CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge and the users can use all four usage modes of sharing the screen, playing games on the touchscreen, traditionally playing games and using the 900 as essentially a tablet. It runs on the 8th Generation Intel Core i7 processor and has memory up to 32 GB DDR4.
It features NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU and a 17-inch 4K IPS  display with NVIDIA G-SYNC and an Xbox wireless receiver. The Predator Triton 500 has a 15.6 inch Full HD display and supports 8 hours of battery life. The Predator Triton 500, like the 900, runs on the 8th Gen Intel Core i7 processor. It also sports GeForce RTX 2080 GPUs with Max-Q Design. It has a DDR4 memory of up to 32 GB. The NVIDIA G-SYNC technology makes playing games on this PC smooth. Acer also claims that the predator PCs can be controlled from a smart-phone using the PredatorSense mobile app. This feature will be available later this year.
