Acer announced the ConceptD 7 Ezel series of convertible laptops and the ConceptD 700 workstation at CES 2020. Acer built all three devices for artists and creators. The ConceptD 7 Ezel series features a unique design that allows the display to flip, fold, and float. The ConceptD 700 workstation packs powerful internals for professional creators and video editors.

The ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro starts at $3,099 while the ConceptD Exel starts at $2,699. The Concept 700 starts at $1,699 and will be available in March. Acer did not share a release date for the ConceptD 7 Ezel series.

The ConceptD 7 Ezel series has a design unlike just about any laptop on the market. In addition to being able to flip into display and tablet mode like many Windows 10 convertible laptops, it can also pop up away from the keyboard into a float mode. This design provides flexibility and allows creators to adjust the height and angle of the screen they're working on. Acer and other companies have made some devices that can flip and adjust, but the ConceptD 7 Ezel series does it while looking like a traditional laptop.

The ConceptD 7 Ezel and ConceptD 7 Ezel Pro have many features in common. The table below specifies between the pro and non-pro versions. If there's no specification, both laptops have the same specs.

  • For Graphic card, it will be good to state exactly graphic card VRAM size..
  • $3K starting price for a 15" display is a bit far out, especially from Acer of all brands.
  • So many mistakes in the text, Windows Central... What do you pay your editors for?
