IFA 2012: Acer gives touchscreens two of his laptops
Missing very little for the official release of Windows 8 this Oct. 26 , many manufacturers are preparing to receive the Modern Touch UI UI through various ways: new tablets, laptops and hybrid ultrabooks with touchscreens. But in this case, did not want to complicate Acer designing from scratch a team, preferring to upgrade two existing models simply adding touch panels.
We talked about the Acer Aspire M3 and Aspire V5, the first being a generation ultrabook with NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M graphics, while the second is a fairly normal device, available in many screen sizes. This allows users to manipulate the boxes without changing ModernUI format to another kind of notebook.
This simplistic solution Acer raises doubts about the viability of this design: Is it comfortable to use traditional touch panels in notebooks? Is not it better to design something from scratch for comfort of the user? Perhaps the presence of this element alone will be enough to draw consumers’ attention and increase sales. Or maybe not.
