With Windows 8 just around the corner, it is no surprise that many devices unveiled at IFA 2012 are either new products designed specifically for Windows 8 or updates to existing models with multi-point touchscreen displays. Acer follows suit and presented two notebooks – the Acer Aspire M3 Touch and Acer Aspire V5 Touch. Both notebooks feature 10-point touchscreen displays and support for Windows 8.

Acer Aspire M3 Touch Series

The Aspire M3 Touch is an update to the previously tested Acer Aspire M3 ultrabook. With a thickness of 22 mm (0.87 inches) and a weight of 2.3 kg (5.1 pounds), the 15.6-inch Aspire M3 Touch has a size and weight comparable to its predecessors. The Aspire M3 Touch is equipped with an Intel Ivy Bridge Core processor, a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT 640M graphics card, and a long-lasting battery. The Aspire M3 promises “a full day of productivity and entertainment on a single charge”.

Acer Aspire V5 Touch Series

The Aspire V5 Touch is an update to the existing series and is again available in both 14-inch and 15.6-inch models. The 14-inch model includes an optical drive, is less than 21 mm (0.83 inches) thick, and weighs less than 2.1 kg (4.6 pounds). The 15.6-inch model is slightly heavier and thicker at 23 mm (0.91 inches) and 2.4 kg (5.3 pounds). The Aspire V5 can be configured with the Intel Core family of processors and a dedicated Nvidia GeForce GT card. As with previous members of the series, the notebook features a combination LAN/VGA port with a proprietary dongle.
