When Acer introduced the ConceptD 9 last year, the creator-focused device stood out with its unusual hinge design. For this year, Acer is bringing back the same concept with a consumer-friendly ConceptD 3 Ezel.
While it has the same dual-hinge design of the ConceptD 9, Acer made it simpler on the ConceptD 3 while keeping the same functionality—you can orient the device in six different modes depending on what you are doing. Core specs include a 14 or 15.6-inch Pantone validated displays, 10th-generation Core i5 or Core i7 H-series processors, and a GTX 1650Ti, discrete GPU.
As a creator-focused device, the ConceptD 3 Ezel has a garaged active pen and a complete set of ports that include Thunderbolt 3, HDMI, and a full-sized SD card reader.
Aside from the ConceptD 3 Ezel, there’s also a ConceptD 3 that has a traditional laptop form factor, a ConceptD 100 desktop, and ConceptD CP3, CP5, and CM3 monitors.
The ConceptD 100 is a compact desktop with a 9th-gen Core i5 processor, GeForce GT 1030 or Quadro P620 graphics card, and easy access USB-A and SD card reader on the front panel. The ConceptD CP3, CP5, and CM3 are 27-inch monitors that are Pantone-validated for the best possible color accuracy. The CM3 has a 4K resolution with 60hz refresh rate, while the CP3 has the same resolution but with HDR400 support and up to 165hz refresh rate. The CP5, on the other hand, has a 1440p resolution with HDR600 support 99% AdobeRGB coverage, and up to 170hz refresh rate.
The ConceptD 3 starts at $999.99(~Php 50.1k) and will be available on October while the ConceptD 3 Ezel starts at $1499.99(~Php 75.2k) and will be available in August. The ConceptD monitors will be available in August with a $619.99(~Php 31.1k) starting price while the ConceptD 100 will be available initially in Europe, Middle East, and Africa this month with a 799 Euro starting price.
