Acer Has Up To 40% Off Laptops & Exclusive Freebies Till 31 Aug

When you’re stuck at home, gadgets like laptops are an absolute necessity for work and leisure. Hence, building a dream WFH set-up filled with updated tech is probably on the top of everyone’s wish lists in this stay-at-home era.

Doing that, however, may leave a dent in your budget. Thankfully, these latest deals from Acer can turn your dreams into an achievable reality.

As part of Acer Day, they’re offering up to 40% off and exclusive gifts throughout the entire month of August.

To kickstart the month-long festivities, Acer is hosting a livestream concert with famous artists from Southeast Asia (SEA). So get your party hats ready to tune in as you shop for some WFH upgrades.

Zhng your WFH setup with new Acer laptops

No matter your budget range, Acer has a substantial variety to choose from, starting with the Aspire 3, the most affordable model.

Acer Aspire 3 | A314-32-C6Z5 – $357 (U.P. $768)

With its 14” HD display and Intel® Celeron dual-core processor, this laptop is perfect if you need a device to handle light work tasks like writing, video streaming, and hosting Zoom meetings.

Only the red and black versions are available, but at 54% off the original price, we aren’t complaining about choosing between the 2 equally sexy colours.

Efficient workers searching for laptops with faster processors and larger RAM sizes may want to consider the Swift 3 instead, which has an 8GB RAM and 1TB SSD.

Its 10th gen Intel Core™ i7-1065G7 processor means that you can browse through multiple tabs at once without annoying lags. That way, you can answer client emails breezily while distracting yourself with YouTube videos when things get a little too stressful.

Weighing at 1.2kg, you can carry the lightweight laptop anywhere, from urgent meetings to your fave café spot if you need a quick escape from home.

But if you prefer to stay in your room for endless gaming sessions after work, the heavier duty Nitro 5 Gaming Laptop would suit you best.

Packed with an NVIDIA GTX 1650Ti graphics card and a 15.6-inch FHD IPS display, you can appreciate clear visuals while slaying at Genshin Impact or Overwatch.

If you’re into graphically intensive games like Final Fantasy XV and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla, the Nitro 5 also comes in another version with an NVIDIA RTX 3060 graphics card, available here.

Thanks to Acer’s CoolBoost technology, you won’t have to worry about your laptop overheating after hours of screen time.

Never underestimate the power of a simple WFH upgrade

Laptops are our best buddies during WFH, but they may need an upgrade every few years or so due to wear and tear.

You’d be surprised to find out how a powerful new device could boost productivity levels, as there’d be no more frowns over intermittent lags when juggling between having 30 tabs open and using heavy-duty software.

As working from home is expected to be the default mode during the pandemic, it’s good to ensure that your rig at home performs according to your expectations so that you can do the same for work.
