Acer at CES 2020 was all about bringing its product range into the new decade with Intel 10th Gen Core processors, high-res screens, more of its innovative Concept range and not forgetting its venerable Travel Mate range – the bread and butter of the line-up.

Acer at CES 2020 was more a statement that you should not overlook this company. While Lenovo and HP battle it out for supremacy, Acer has clawed its way back to fourth place – a bee’s whisker away from surpassing Apple.
