Acer's press conference in New York next week is still a mystery as the Taiwanese manufacturer has yet to tease any devices leading up to the event. We can, however, count on new Predator gaming products as Acer recently tweeted with the hashtag #PredatorGaming. The opening keynote will start on April 27th at 11:00 AM EST where several surprises are expected to be in store.
Notebookcheck will be live at the event covering all the details with hands-on previews and reports. We are fully expecting the Predator 21 X to make an appearance as it has been the main Acer attraction since 2016. Beyond that, an Ultrabook refresh may be in the works with proper ULV Kaby Lake CPU options as the current Swift 7 ships only with low-power passively-cooled options. A more direct competitor to the Asus Zenbook 3 or Dell XPS 13 or 15 series, for example, could bring Acer back to the forefront.
