The Aspire 5 laptop features 13th Generation Intel Core processors and NVIDIA GeForce RTX GPUs for multi-tasking and content editing. It comes with up to 32 GB of DDR4 memory and up to a 1 TB M.2 SSD, the company said, “providing bloggers, photographers, and students with the essential tools to allow them to get things done.” Acer also announced the budget friendly Aspire 3 laptop, with Intel Core i3-N series processors, which focuses on ease of use.

Acer showcased Chromebox Add-In-One desktops: the Chromebox CXI5, Chromebox Enterprise CX15, and Add-in-One 24. The Chromebox CX15 and Enterprise CX15 run on up to 12th Gen Intel Core i7 processors, Intel vPro built for business, and up to four external displays.
