Acer's Switch 7 Black Edition and Predator Orion 9000 are coming to the U.S.

Acer announced a number of new products ahead of CES 2018 today, including a new Switch 7, Spin 3, Nitro 5 gaming laptop, and Chromebook 11. Alongside of all of that though, the firm also announced U.S. availability for some PCs that it introduced at IFA 2017 back in August.

One of them is the Switch 7 Black Edition. This PC is a tablet with an attachable keyboard, but it also includes some impressive specs. It has Intel's eighth-generation 'Kaby Lake R' processors, meaning that it's quad-core, as opposed to the 7th-gen's dual-core, resulting in up to a 30% increase in performance. But on top of that, there are also dedicated graphics in the form of Nvidia's GeForce MX150.

Acer says that the Switch 7 Black Edition is the first fanless 2-in-1 to sport discrete graphics, featuring Dual LiquidLoop fanless cooling technology.

The Predator Orion 9000 is a powerful gaming desktop that also features liquid cooling. It uses Intel's 18-core Core i9 Extreme Edition, along with an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1080Ti GPU. The processor is unlocked for overclocking, and you can get it with up to 128GB DDR4RAM. In other words, gaming PCs don't get much more powerful than this.

The Acer Switch 7 Black Edition will be coming to the United States this month, starting at $1,699, while the Predator Orion 9000 will arrive next month, starting at $1,999.
