One of the more interesting new Windows 10 devices in Acer's new lineup is the ConceptD 9, a notebook with Acer's fancy hinge that lets creators set the 17.3-inch Ultra HD display at nearly any angle for typing or sketching with the magnetically attached Wacom stylus.
Acer's "midrange" Predator Helios 300 gaming laptop is also based around a Full HD IPS 144Hz 3ms display, this time available in 15.6- or 17.3 inches. In fact, Predator Helios 300's name has been around for the past few years but for the model's 2019 iteration, the company has provided a new look to the laptop.
The Taiwanese company unveiled three new laptops, two new desktops, a pair of new PC monitors, and a VR headset on Thursday at its annual global launch event at Brooklyn Navy Yard, a gritty post-industrial nexus for the creative pros who Acer hopes will buy these new devices. Some of those products were aimed at students, such as the Acer Chromebook 715, while the Predator CG437P UHD monitor is for gaming enthusiasts. However, that seemingly straightforward design is hiding an interesting quirk: A slide-out "HyperDrift" keyboard. The laptop has a 17.3-inch, 4K UHD display built on a hinge that allows it to flip, rotate and extend in a way similar to the Microsoft Surface Studio.

Acer also updated its Nitro and Helios gaming notebook range.
"By simply sliding the keyboard forward, two additional air intakes are uncovered above the keyboard and below the display, giving the powerful heat-generating components extra air flow for maximum cooling and unleashed overclocking".
Creators will not need to worry about storage with this desktop as it has 12 memory slots, 5 storage bays and multiple PCIe slots which can support up to 192GB RAM and 60TB storage.
We haven't been able to benchmark it, of course, but Acer says you'll be able to "fine-tune images with professional precision and complete the trickiest 2D graphic design projects in no time".More news: Man arrested after boy falls from balcony at Minnesota's Mall of America
Even with the size of the laptop, Acer had to make ample room for the graphics and processor hardware inside, forcing the touchpad to the right side of the keyboard.
The ConceptD 9 is the flagship device following the line.
The ConceptD 7 is quite smaller featuring a 15.6-inch 4K panel, and slightly less powerful specs.
Acer offers a couple of ConceptD desktops too, with up to dual Xeon Gold 6148 processors, and Quadro RTX 6000 graphics, as part of this new creators range. The new Predator Orion 5000 desktop PC powered by Windows 10 is a mid-tower targeting hardcore gamers, with Intel's latest Z390 chipset, 9th Gen Intel Core i9-9900K processor, and features an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 GPU. The Concept D 9 launches in June starting at $4,999. With up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM at 2666MHz and up to two 512GB M.2 SSDs, the ConceptD 9 doesn't come cheap as it will ship in June for a staggering starting price of $4,999.More news: Lomachenko: I Want a Fight With Mikey Garcia, I Want Titles
