Richard Platt's curator insight, October 13, 2015 11:43 PM

Built around Pentium or Celeron processors and featuring up to 8GB of DDR3L system memory and an option of SSD or HDD storage, the 17.3-inch Aspire Z3-700 has a 15.6 millimeters chassis and weighs 2 kilograms, according to Acer. It has a full HD (1920 x 1080) 10-point capacitive multi-touch screen, which also supports a stylus. A couple of kick stands allow it stay erect or recline flat like “a jumbo tablet,” Acer said.  The convertible’s keyboard can be used in the usual laptop mode or can switch to a “display mode” by placing the keyboard behind the screen to make a tent or laying it flat under the display.

It also provides audio with immersive sound with Acer’s True Harmony Plus technology with Dolby Audio. They also offer four modes to control blue-light emission from the screen and reduce eyestrain, using Acer’s BluelightShield.
