Acer's ConceptD 3 Ezel borrow from the last year's ConceptD 7 Ezel's design but leaves behind the high price.
Mirroring the recently announced ConceptD 3 laptops, the Ezel versions feature many of the same specifications including that NVIDIA GTX 1650Ti (or Quadro T1000) for graphics all powered by a six-core Intel 10th Gen 45-watt CPU making these very powerful convertibles.
Here is what you need to know about these new convertibles, including how much they will cost, and when you can order one.
Acer ConceptD 3 Ezel specs and features
Two versions of the ConceptD 3 Ezel are available, including the 15.6-inch version, but the 14-inch may be the sweet spot, especially since it only weighs 1.74 kg (3.83lbs). That savings in weight is due to the polycarbonate used on the chassis instead of metal.

Just like the non-convertible counterparts, Acer here is aiming for a more affordable market hence the limit of 16GB of RAM.
But the display continues to be amazing with Pantone Validation for color accuracy, and 4,096 levels of sensitivity for the Acer Active Styles.
Acer notes that the ConceptD 3 Ezel, which borrows a lot from HP's Spectre Folio design (minus the leather), gives this laptop durability and stability for whatever positions you choose to use it in:
The innovative ConceptD 3 Ezel is a convertible notebook designed to give creators the most intuitive experience possible. Its amber-backlit keys are set against a pristine white all-metal chassis and a luxuriously large glass trackpad that supports multi-finger gestures. Acer's innovative Ezel hinge makes the device as versatile as it is elegant, empowering users with the ability to switch between six usage modes such as stand mode for drawing content or display mode for presenting it. Other usage modes include an adjustable float mode, traditional laptop mode, pad mode, and share mode.
Battery life is pegged at 18 hours, which is two hours less than the non-convertible designs.
The ConceptD 3 Ezel will be available in North America in August starting at $1,499.99; in EMEA in September starting at EUR 1,699; and in China in August, starting at RMB 9,999.
A very flexible PC
Power on the go
The new ConceptD 3 Ezel comes in two sizes (14 and 15.6-inch) with a one-of-a-kind display that flips around so you can use it between six usage modes. It also packs a 45-watt CPU and GTX 1650Ti for graphics (with a Quadro option). Look for it on store shelves this August.
