Acer announces that thirteen of its products have been honored with the prestigious Red Dot Design Awards for design excellence. These wins come on the heels of Acer’s twelve wins at the recent iF Design Award 2018. This year, with industry-leading innovations such as the Swift 7, the world’s thinnest notebook, and the Acer Chromebook Tab 10, the first Chrome OS tablet for education, the Red Dot award-winning Acer products cover a broad range of categories, ranging from notebooks, desktops, headsets, monitors, to projectors. This exemplifies Acer’s commitment to making outstanding design an integral consideration for the user experience, regardless of product type and price point.
“We are thrilled that thirteen of Acer’s products have been endowed with such a prestigious honor, and equally excited that so many of our product categories are represented among the winners” said Tiffany Huang, President of Corporate Marketing, Business Planning, and Operations at Acer. “Not only are we motivated by our mission to make technology accessible to as many people as possible, but also to provide exceptional experiences via user-centric designs and functionalities on all classes of devices.”
The iF Design Award 2018-winning notebook’s svelte 18.9 mm (0.74 inch) thin, 2.45 kg (5.4 pound) aluminum chassis houses a 15.6-inch Full HD IPS display and best-in-class computing technologies for just the right balance of size and performance without sacrificing thermals, features or rigidity. Its understated black chassis features a minimalist design, with straight contours and angular front corners.
The Predator Galea 500 gaming headset puts gamers right inside the game, giving them the ability to hear and not just see the exact location of elements within the game. It achieves this with Acer’s TrueHarmony 3D Soundscape technology, and recreates the acoustic space based on the orientation of the player’s head, convincing the brain that sound is coming from a fixed direction.
The Swift 5 is designed for users who want superb portability, solid performance, and a touch of style. The elegant chassis weighs just 970 g making it ideal for people always on the go. A sophisticated selection of materials includes ultra-light magnesium-lithium alloys for the top and bottom covers, and magnesium-aluminum alloys for extra sturdiness on the palm rest area.
The Acer Spin 5 features a major breakthrough in design, namely its speakers. In the past, speakers found on convertible notebooks were easily obstructed while in certain usage modes. Acer overcame this with a practical design that ensures the speakers are never obstructed in any of the device’s four modes to ensure uncompromised audio.
At just 8.98 mm thin the Acer Swift 7 is the world’s thinnest laptop. The premium aluminum unibody is pleasing to the eye and gentle to touch, perfect for modern professionals seeking a sophisticated looking device. It has built-in, blazing-fast 4G LTE connectivity which keeps users productive and always-connected, especially useful for professionals who wish to eliminate tedious wireless connection problems on the road so they can stay focused on the task at hand.
