Today, Acer Malaysia celebrated their 30th anniversary in Malaysia so in conjunction with that, the company have spewed multiple new products for their customers. Ranging from working to gaming, we will be taking a look at the 2020 version of the Acer Spin 3, TravelMate P614, as well as the Veriton K8-660G desktop with a starting price of RM2699.
Staring with the new Spin 3, the laptop is even slimmer and lighter than before compared to its predecessor. Weighing just 1.5kg and measures 16.9mm thin, the 14-inch display FHD display continues to use the convertible hinge so the user can transform it into a tent or tablet mode.
On the flip side, it packs up to 10th Gen Intel Core i5 processor, up to 8GB RAM, 512GB PCIe NVMe SSD, and the Acer Active Stylus is back too with fast charging technology. There are two variants for this, the higher-spec costs RM3199 while the other one is RM2699 using Intel Core i3 and 4GB RAM.
On the other hand, the TravelMate P614 has made its debut and this is specially designed for professionals who are always on-the-go. Able to standby up to 20 hours of battery life (with fast charge technology up to 50% in 45 minutes) and endure from falling down (MIL-STD-810G and 810F military-grade), this laptop is surprisingly 1.1kg only.
As for the tech specs, it is equipped with up to 10 gen Intel Core i7 processor, 8GB DDR4 memory, an optional NVIDIA GeForce MX250 graphics, and up to 1TB of Gen 3 x 4 PCIe SSD NVMe technology.

To add on, the laptop's Intel Thunderbolt 3 port can transfer up to 40Gbps with connection up to 8K displays.
