As part of its CES 2015 announcements, Microsoft has stated that Acer will include Intel's 5th generation Core processors and 802.11ac wireless hardware in a number of its Windows 8.1 laptops, including the Aspire R 13, Aspire S7, and Aspire Switch 12.
"The Aspire R 13 and Aspire Switch 12 are 2-in-1 convertible PCs. Both feature the ability to transition into 5 different modes including tablet, tent or laptop. The Aspire R 13 has a special hinge – the Acer Ezel Aero hinge – that enables the 13.3-inch display rotate 180 degrees. The Aspire Switch 12 has a 12.5-inch display with a unique kickstand design that features a magnetic and latch-less detachable keyboard. And the Aspire S7 Ultrabook is built super thin with an all-aluminum unibody design.
The Aspire R 13 and Aspire S7 featuring 5th Generation Intel Core processors and 802.11ac wireless will be available worldwide in January. The Aspire Switch 12 featuring the new Intel Core M processor will be available in the United States and Canada in early 2015. Exact specifications, prices and availability will vary by region."
