PRODUCT OF THE YEAR: ACER CONCEPTD 9
As more people work from home the more pressure there is on them to deliver overall performance especially as many are having to work in a cloud environment especially small businesses where the notebook becomes a jack of all trades whether it’s being used for video editing, managing large spreadsheets or the creation of creative material.
Enter the ConceptD 9, a beast of a portable workstation which while being expensive is well worth the investment for anyone who basically spends several hours a day working on a notebook often five days a week.
The heart and soul of this beast is an eight-core Core i9 processor, it also features an innovative easel hinge that converts into a digital drawing table. It’s heavy because it has a 17.3-inch display that tilts at 90 degrees.
I first saw this portable workstation in Taiwan and after using it for two days I did not want to give it back.
