Acer director of products, sales and marketing, Chan Weng Hong said, "Acer is constantly innovating our products and designs in our transformation to become a hardware + software + services company.

Other exciting products that were launched included the Aspire S 13, Aspire R 15, Aspire E & F Series and Acer R1 Series monitors.

The new R1 Series monitors boast an ultra-thin enclosure, at only 6.6mm on its edge with ZeroFrame bezel for maximized viewing experience. They have a 178-degree wide viewing angle and retails at a starting price of RM479.
