JERSEY CITY, N.J.—At an event at the Liberty Science Center here, Acer showed off more than 20 new PCs, including netbooks and mininotebooks, thin and light Aspire Timeline laptops, and all-in-one PCs running Microsoft Windows 7, which allows users to take advantage of multitouch screen technology. The April 7 launch will have an impact on all three lines within the Acer Group: Acer, Gateway and eMachines. Through aggressive pricing and focusing on technology such as laptops and netbooks that offer up to 8 hours of battery life, Acer is looking to challenge the world's two leading PC vendors —Hewlett-Packard and Dell. One of the more innovative PCs on display April 7 was the Acer AspireRevo, a new type of small-footprint nettop that uses Intel's Atom processors and the Nvidia Ion platform to provide graphics. Other PCs on display included the Acer Aspire Timeline series, Acer's All-in-One offering and new Aspire One netbooks.
