Acer’s ConceptD range of devices feature premium hardware and a range useful features, designed to meet the exacting standards required for professional visual workloads, such as CAD, 3D & 3D modelling, photo & video editing and much more.
The ConceptD 3 notebook embodies this with premium hardware and a stunning screen wrapped up in a stylish body – you even get 3 months complimentary Adobe Creative Cloud membership included with it as well.
The premium body of the ConceptD 3 measures a mere 17.9mm thick and weighs just 1.41kg, thanks to the use of magnesium-aluminium alloys, which are up to 20% lighter and nearly twice as durable as standard aluminium. Despite being so thin and light, the ConceptD 3 still manages to pack in a 57.5Wh battery which can last up-to 14.5 hours use on a single charge, so you’re able to keep using on-the-move all day.
It also features a stylish white finish which stands out from the crowd. You needn’t worry about stains or marks though – through the use of micro-arc oxidation and a stain-resistant coating, the finish will stand up to day-to-day mishaps such as dirt, coffee and pens, as well as protecting it from yellowing over time.
Don’t be fooled, the ConceptD 3 isn’t simply a matter of form over function – it’s packed full of powerful hardware so you can effortlessly handle a wide range of creative workflows. The Intel Core i7 CPU and 16GB of DDR4 RAM ensure that you can run intensive programmes such as Photoshop, AutoCAD or Premiere Pro with ease, plus the 512GB SSD gives you plenty of storage space for all your files and projects.
The ConceptD 3 also comes with an Nvidia GTX 1650 GPU which supports Nvidia’s Studio drivers, letting you power through intensive workloads such as 2D & 3D rendering. Nvidia Studio drivers are developed in conjunction with Adobe, Autodesk and many others to provide optimised performance for a wide range of creative applications.
The 14” Full HD IPS display of the ConceptD 3 exemplifies the exacting standards found throughout the notebook. It supports 100% of the sRGB colour gamut, giving you a wider range of colours to work with. You also get precise colour accuracy with the ConceptD 3’s screen being Pantone Validated with support for the Pantone Matching System, in addition to a Delta E value of <2, which means that colour variation is practically imperceptible to the human eye.
The ConceptD 3’s screen is also protect by Corning’s Gorilla Glass 5 for enhanced protection against chips, scratches and cracks. The glass also features a matte anti-glare finish for a more comfortable viewing experience in brightly lit environments, which helps to reduce eye strain.
One of the most annoying things about trying to complete intensive work on a laptop is the noise from the fans. To ensure this isn’t an issue with the ConceptD 3, it uses dual cooling fans are custom-engineered to use ‘Vortex Flow’ aerodynamics, which minimise noise levels while still providing excellent airflow and cooling. This keeps the fan noise below 40dBA, which is around the same noise level as you’d find in a library, allowing you to focus on your work without any distractions.
The ConceptD 3 also features a range of premium features that help improve your overall enjoyment when using it.
These include the scissor-switch keyboard with 1.55mm key travel for a responsive and tactile typing experience, while also minimising typing noise. The keyboard has a warm amber backlight which helps with working in darker rooms, as well as 3 dedicated creative shortcut keys to assist with snipping, task-switching and colour-picking.
You also get a 27% larger touchpad with Corning Gorilla Glass to protect against scratches. The touchpad is Microsoft Precision certified, with full support for all of Windows 10’s gestures.
Finally, there is a Windows Hello compatible fingerprint scanner, which provides a convenient way to log in while still keeping all of your data safe.
The ConceptD 3 is equipped with a full range of connectivity options, including Wi-Fi 6 for faster and more reliable wireless internet access; a full-size SD card slot to allow you to easily load photos from a D-SLR or other cameras; two USB 3.2 ports for connecting to a wide range of peripheral devices; MiniDisplayPort for connecting to a wide range of premium monitors; and a USB-C port with Thunderbolt 3 connectivity, which allows for simultaneous charging, data transfer and display support using a single cable.
The ConceptD 3 is the obvious choice for any creator who wants to work on the move, balancing impressive performance with a portable form factor to provide a compelling all-round package.
