Acer‘s C910 Chromebook (Acer Iterates on 15″ Chromebook Design) has been released in the USA. The C910-54M1 has a 15.6″ display, 1920 x 1080 resolution, Core i5 processor and eight-hour battery life. It costs $450.
The new 2015 Macbook from Apple (Apple Plugs TV, Adds a New MacBook and erm…. Shows Some Watches) has 2304 x 1440 resolution, but Ars Technica has found that it can also handle UltraHD resolution. In tests, the notebook was found to be capable of driving UltraHD monitors at 60Hz, despite Apple claiming that it was only designed for monitors up to 2560 x 1600. The unit did struggle with some animation-intensive activities, however.
Microsoft has cut the price of its Surface Pro 3 convertible tablet in the UK. For a limited time, the 64GB product is available for £485 ($720).
Samsung‘s Gear VR (Display Monitor Vol 21 No 28) will be launched in the USA on the 27th March, at Best Buy.
