May 24, 2018

So event wrapped up, we come to the availability aspect of it all. Acer announced a massive list of devices at Next@Acer, and we now have availability and prices.

The Predator X may seem a distant dream, yet the Predator Helios 500 will be in retail in July at a starting price of AED 11,499. Now that’s something to look forward to.

The Predator Orion 5000 is will come to the region in August with a starting price of AED 7,999, while July is also when the Nitro 50 desktops will come to stores, starting at AED 3,699

We are super excited about the Helios 300 Special Edition (White), and while we have no info on the pricing, it will come to the UAE in December.

The 15.6″ Swift 5 will only come to our side in December with no prices announced.

However the Chromebooks are set to roll out from July/August onwards. The Chromebook Spin 15 will retail for AED 1,699, while at the top of the spectrum, the Chromebook 13 will retail for AED 3,699, coming to UAE stores in November.
