(Pocket-lint) - With Microsoft announcing its own hardware for Windows 10 recently, the roadshow continues, bringing more devices from more manufacturers. Now is the turn of Acer.

Acer has previously shown a number of devices destined for Windows 10, including its smartphone, the Primo Jade that will come with a keyboard and docking station to take advantage of Continuum.

But more interestingly is the updated Aspire R 14. The model has been revamped over the earlier model released under the same name, now coming with sixth-gen Intel Core chipsets, an improved design and a slimmer hinge.

As the name suggests, this is a 14-inch laptop, but the flexible hinge gives it a full range of positioning, so you move it into different modes and positions. The Aspire R 14 is 18.5mm thick and it weighs 1.59kg.

The Acer Aspire R 14 starts from $699/€799 (approx. £580) and will be available in the US in late October. We are still awaiting confirmation of UK pricing and availability.


Also joining the Acer Windows 10 line-up is the Aspire Z3-700. This is an all-in-one, so yes, it's really a desktop, but when you pack in a battery that will give you 5-hours of mobility, this is a device that blurs the lines.

There's a 17.5-inch full HD touchscreen, so you can use this as a big home tablet, porting it around the house to get it to wherever you need to be. It will come with a stylus too, so you can scribble on it.

The Aspire Z3-700 will come with a range of hardware options and will start from €599, hitting Europe by the end of the year. In the UK the Z3-700 will cost £399 and you'll be able to get it from Dixons from the end of October.

We will update as soon as we know more.
