Acer hopes Windows 10 will be enough to save it, but it won’t be

I highly doubt that embracing Windows 10 will be able to save Acer, especially now that the company has pretty much faded into insignificance, but that’s not stopping it from trying. Acer already showed off some Windows 10 hardware at an event in New York City last week, and this morning it held a similar event in Taipei, it’s home city, where it showcased even more hardware that none of us will actually buy.   

After the Windows 10 New York City hardware showcase last week, Acer has unveiled two PCs that take advantage of new features in Microsoft’s latest operating system. At a press conference on Monday in Taipei, the Taiwanese hardware vendor took the wraps off its Aspire R14 notebook and the hybrid tablet-notebook Aspire Z3-700. “We worked closely with the Acer team throughout the development of these new devices, which ensures our customers can make the most of Windows 10,” Microsoft’s chief of Windows and devices Terry Myerson said in a blog entry. “You can also see the promise of the familiar and consistent experience we are delivering with Windows 10 extending across their device lineup, from notebooks to PCs to phones,” he added. The devices showcase Microsoft’s efforts to bring a common experience across notebooks, PCs, and phones with Skype; Cortana, its voice assistant; Continuum, a feature that enables a phone to act as a PC when connected to a separate display; Microsoft’s new Edge browser; and the Xbox app.
