Acer makes desktop computers, laptops, monitors, and related hardware accessories for work and home. While it usually launches products all year long, it also does hold an annual press event called Next@Acer.

It will be held May 27, 2021 at 9 a.m. ET. Tagged 'New Perspectives', the event will be fully online. It will be held virtually and can be viewed on the Acer site and on the Acer YouTube channel.  

Which Products Will Be Announced?

Known for its Essential line of laptops, the company could be announcing a new product in that line. It is also likely to be introducing a new gaming laptop and gaming accessories to go along with the Predator and Nitro gaming monitors in released in January 2021.

It announced the Enduro Urban line of notebooks and tablets in April 2021; watch for accessories for that product line to come out as well.

In April 2021, Acer disclosed plans to acquire a stake in FocalTech System, a Taiwan display driver IC supplier, to help fulfill its notebook orders. That acquisition could also mean additional products from Acer, including next-generation fingerprint, touch, display-driver integrated chips, and more.

The company also renewed and expanded its partnership with Envy Gaming in early 2021; the agreement ensures Acer will supply the esports organization with Predator gaming hardware. We expect more gaming news and initiatives to arise out of this partnership in time for Next@Acer 2021.
