Acer unveiled two new Windows 10 devices: the Aspire R 14 convertible notebook, and the Aspire Z3-700 portable all-in-one PC.
“With Windows 10, we can now deliver a unique and consistent experience across our comprehensive product portfolio, be it notebooks, desktops, tablets or smartphones, and empower users to do great things with more personal and human technology,” said Jason Chen, Corporate President and CEO, Acer.
Both devices with dual-digital microphones feature Acer Purified.Voice with enhanced digital signal processing (DSP) that cancel background noise and improve speech accuracy, allowing people to have an optimized Cortana experience.
For a better Windows 10 audio and visual experience, the Aspire R 14 and Aspire Z3-700 feature Acer TrueHarmony Plus technology with Dolby Audio, providing powerful audio with immersive surround. Both devices also ship with Acer BluelightShield, with four professionally tuned modes to choose from, which can effectively reduce eye strain by reducing blue light emission from the screen.
