Acer America has received numerous accolades this year for a number of its product lines that provide innovative design and features that make the most of Windows 8. The Acer S7 Series Ultrabook has been applauded for its long battery life and a first-rate user experience thanks to the touch-screen and electroluminescent backlit keyboard. The Acer Aspire R7 notebook redefined the touch and typing experience with a 15.6-inch full HD 1920x1080 touch screen display that can be moved into different positions via the Ezel Hinge for natural, fluid computing.

Acer America was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services, as well as demonstrating excellent subsidiary engagement in the U.S. market.
