Acer ConceptD 5 | ConceptD 5 Pro For Graphic Designers!

The Acer ConceptD 5 | ConceptD 5 Pro is a new laptop designed for the discerning graphic designer, offering the power of a desktop computer, in a svelte and light chassis.

Here is our quick primer on Pro and non-Pro variants of this designer laptop!

 

Acer ConceptD 5 | ConceptD 5 Pro For Graphic Designers!

The Acer ConceptD 5 and ConceptD 5 Pro are designed to be a light and thin laptop, weighing just 1.5 kg (3.3 lbs) and just 16.9 mm (0.67 inch) thick. Yet, they pack a lot of professional-grade hardware.

Flip the cover and a PANTONE-validated IPS display with a 4K UHD resolution greets you. To ensure colour accuracy for design work, it displays 100% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut, with Delta E <2.

They are both powered by the 9th Gen Intel Core i7 mobile processor, with up to 16 GB of DDR4 memory, and up to two 512 GB PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0.

They will come with AMD Radeon RX Vega M GL graphics in some regions, and a choice between NVIDIA Quadro and GeForce graphics in other regions.

They come with a full range of ports, including a USB-C Gen 1 port, a DisplayPort and a dedicated USB port that supports offline charging.

There is also has an embedded fingerprint reader that allows for easier login through Windows Hello.

They are both kept cool by a 4th Gen AeroBlade 3D fan. It features very thin 0.1 mm fan blades with a serrated edge, winglets along the top and bottom, as well as a curved fin along the inner portion of each blade. Acer claims this increases airflow by up to 45%!

To keep things quiet though, the AeroBlade 3D fan has a noise reduction mechanism that keeps it down to less than 40 dB – as quiet as a library!
