Acer Malaysia today officially opened its latest Acer Concept Store at Quill City Mall, in the city. Acer also launched its latest 2-in-1 notebook --- the Acer Aspire Switch 10 E, which was unveiled at Acer's inaugural "next@acer" event in New York last week.
The Red Dot award-winning Switch 10 E (SW3-013) boasts the second generation Acer Snap Hinge 2 for smooth switching between the four available modes --- Laptop, Tablet, Display and Tent. The new 2-in-1 convertible now comes with a textile-patterned top cover and underside, and in five eye-catching colours: Moonstone White, Shark Grey, Peakcock Blue, Magenta Pink and Coral Red.
With a quad-core Intel Atom powering the notebook, it runs Windows 8.1 and is Windows 10 ready. Two variants are available including 32GB + 500GB storage and 64GB variant.
The grand opening of the Acer Concept Store will be followed by Mid Valley Megamall and The Mines. The 1,195sqft store is managed by Brightstar. Acer plans to open more concept stores and upgrade existing stores for a better customer experience. The store serves customers daily from 10am - 10pm.
Acer currently has a strong network of authorised resellers, 16 service centres nationwide via Highpoint Service Network Sdn Bhd.
