Next@Acer is a true showcase of all things that make Acer brilliant, and the Next@Acer 2022 event was no different. Next-Gen gaming laptops, high-end monitors and the odd limited edition machine aside, Acer also detailed its plans for the rest of 2022 and beyond. They covered plans to expand sustainability efforts such as using post-consumer and ocean-bound plastics in laptops and peripherals as well as creating reusable and fully recyclable packaging.
Acer’s charismatic CEO Jason Chen started things off from Aspire Park in Taiwan with the phrase ‘Hello World!’
So then, drumroll please, here are some of the highlights from the Next@Acer 2022 event.
Acer Swift 3 OLED
The Acer Swift 3 OLED is the latest thin-and-light laptop, powered by a 12th Gen Intel Core processor. As the name suggests, the laptop comes with a 14-inch OLED display with 2.8K resolution with VESA DisplayHDR True Black 500-certification. The laptop also offers Intel EVO certification and claims to offer 10 hours of real-world battery life.
In addition to the Acer Swift 3 OLED, the company also announced the Acer Spin 5 convertible laptop (SP514-51N) and Acer Spin 3 convertible laptop (SP314-55/N). All these laptops will be available in the select market, starting May/July 2022.
