Acer announced some expansions to its ConceptD workstation lineup, including two new mobile workstations and a desktop. The two mobile workstations are the ConceptD 7 Ezel and ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro, and what's particularly interesting about them is that they're convertibles.
The ConceptD 7 Ezel series packs a serious punch for any portable PC, let alone a convertible. The Ezel offers Intel's 10th-generation H-series processors and up to an Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. The Pro packs an Intel Xeon processor and Quadro RTX graphics.
"We're expanding our ConceptD line with new convertible notebook form factors to support professionals in their creative endeavors," said Jerry Kao, Co-COO, Acer Inc. "Ideally suited for professionals creating 2D and 3D work, we’re excited to expand the line with these powerful new tools that can assist more creators."
These convertibles are meant to be able to do just about anything, from sketching with the Wacom EMR pen to presenting with the 4K 400-nit display, which supports 100% Adobe RGB color gamut and has color accuracy of Delta E <2. That screen is also made out of Gorilla Glass 6, so it should be pretty resiliant, and it has an anti-glare coating.
The desktop PC that Acer announced is the ConceptD 700. This PC packs an Intel Xeon E processor and up to Quadro RTX 4000 graphics, which includes 8GB GDDR6. It's also meant to fit the design of a modern design studio, and it's also designed to be quiet, at 40dBA.
The Acer ConceptD 7 Ezel will arrive in North America in June starting at $2,699, in EMEA in April starting at €2,499, and in China in June starting at ¥34,999. The ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro will arrive in North America in July starting at $3,099, in EMEA in May starting at €2,999, and in China in June starting at ¥44,999. Finally, the ConceptD 700 will arrive in EMEA in March, starting at €1,699.
