Acer has been rather tight-lipped when it comes to product reveals at next@Acer, but we have seen chatter on social media about a "brand-new chapter" awaiting us. This seems to include brand new Nitro and Predator gaming laptops (opens in new tab) featuring up to 9th Gen Intel Core i9 processors. That's some serious power.

There's also a teaser about "counting down to 715," which includes a slim laptop outline and Chrome logo, and that likely means Acer is bringing a new Chromebook into the mix. This is, of course, all speculation, and we'll have to wait patiently for the official press conference to begin.
If you're interested to see the best of what Acer has to offer before all the new stuff is revealed, be sure to have a look at our roundup of the best Acer laptops.
