Acer has launched a new suite of premium notebooks, desktops, and monitors to expand its ConceptD premium laptop lineup for creators.
The ConceptD 3 Ezel and ConceptD 3 notebooks are both designed for design students, freelance designers, and small design studios.
These laptops are capable of handling medium-to-complex CAD work, the company said, and prioritise a great display and powerful graphics to achieve this.
The ConceptD is a great desktop for those who do graphics-intensive 2D design or are interested in getting into entry-level 3D CAD modelling.
This desktop also pairs well with Acer’s new ConceptD range of designer-focused displays.
