Acer unveiled a revolutionary series of laptops codenamed ConceptD at its annual global press conference in New York last week.

The three-candidate series is targeted at the creative and design market.

Acer ConceptD 9

At the apex of the string is the Acer ConceptD 9, a monster of a notebook that boasts a PANTONE® Validated 17-inch 4K display, 9th Gen Core i9 processor, up to 1TB SSD, up to 32GB of RAM, NVidia GeForce RTX 2080, a swivel Ezel hinge for maximum flexibility, and Wacom® EMR Pen.


Acer ConceptD 7

Next in line is the Acer ConceptD 7 which comes with a PANTONE® Validated 4K UHD Display with 100% Adobe RGB, 9th Gen Intel Core i7 Processor, up to 32 GB of RAM, up to 1Tb SSD, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 with Max-Q Design, and Fan Noise of less than 40db.


Acer ConceptD 5

The ConceptD 5 is the trimmed down version of the series. It features an 8th Gen Intel® Core i7 Processor, a PANTONE® Validated 4K UHD Display with 100% Adobe® RGB, a Radeon™ RX Vega M GL Graphics, and Fan Noise below 40db.

The three laptops will come with remarkable connectivity capabilities, including USB type-C and Thunderbolt 3. Another fascinating feature, besides the premium look, is the remarkable form factor. The display of the Acer ConceptD 9 can be flipped over, reclined, or extended beyond the keyboard, thanks to the Ezel Aero Hinge. This will allow designers to position the display in a personalized orientation.

Expect to cough upwards of $4000 for the concept 9 flagship model once it arrives in August. The conceptD7 and Concept 5 are expected to arrive in June at a price of about $2000 and $1600 respectively.

Stay tuned for further updates.
