Acer teases May 3rd reveal for Windows 8 laptop-desktop hybrid?

Last week, Acer launched a new TV commercial campaign that linked its Windows 8 laptops and tablets to the upcoming sci-fi summer blockbuster film Star Trek Into Darkness. At the time, the promotion seemed to be pretty tame, with Acer products shown alongside clips of the film with the rebooted versions of Captain Kirck, Mr. Spock and the rest of the Enterprise crew.

Today, Acer uploaded another new Star Trek Into Darkness TV commercial on its YouTube channel, but this one is a bit different. In between scenes from the movie, the ad shows glimpses of a previously unseen Acer notebook. The model seems to be some sort of hybrid product that has the screen sliding in a position so that it can be turned into what looks like an all-in-one PC.

Acer says that this 'revolutionary notebook' will be fully revealed on Friday, May 3rd. At the moment, we will assume this is a Windows 8-based reveal as all of the other products in the Star Trek campaign run with Microsoft's latest OS. Hopefully the mysterious Acer device will have some additional Star Trek Into Darkness content, since its being revealed two weeks before the movie is launched in the U.S. on May 17th.
