All Acer devices that currently ship with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 will support the free upgrade to Windows 10 that should arrive at the end of July.

Acer announced earlier today that the company's entire 2015 Windows-powered product lineup that currently ships loaded with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 is fully compatible with Windows 10. All these portables will support the free upgrade when it rolls out, starting on July 29.

Maarten Schellekens, Acer's Vice President of Global Marketing and Branding, says "We’re confident that customers who purchased or plan to get an Acer Windows PC in 2015 will experience a smooth transition to Windows 10." Acer obtained Skype for Business certifications for quite a few consumer and commercial notebooks. The official press release reveals that portables that use the Acer Purified.Voice technology "have proven in laboratory tests to improve speech accuracy scores up to 1.5 times with vacuum cleaner ambient noise, compared to models without Skype certification."

It is also worth reminding that Precision Touchpads (PTP) are now present in both consumer and commercial notebooks by Acer. This technology allows a better user experience overall and is fully supported out of the box, without the need of any additional drivers.

The full Windows 10-ready Acer lineup will be on display at the 2015 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference from July 12th to 16th in Orlando, Florida. Next to notebooks, the company will also show smartphones, tablets, convertibles, all-in-one PCs, as well as wearables and peripherals.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
