The 17.3-inch Acer ConceptD 9  | ConceptD 9 Pro Creator Laptops

The Acer ConceptD 9 and ConceptD 9 Pro boast a large 17.3-inch PANTONE-validated IPS display with a 4K UHD resolution. It naturally covers 100% of the Adobe RGB colour gamut, with colour accuracy of Delta E <1.

Thanks to the CNC-machined Ezel Aero Hinge, their display can be flipped, extended or reclined to suit your needs.

They also come with a Wacom EMR stylus that has 4,096 levels of pressure, and magnetically attaches to the chassis.

They are both powered by the 9th Gen Intel Core mobile processor, with up to 32 GB of DDR4-2666 memory, and two 512 GB M.2 PCIe NVMe SSDs in RAID 0.

The real difference between the two models? The Pro comes with NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000 graphics, while the non-Pro model comes with NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 graphics.

All that computing power and fast storage ensure that creators will have no issue working natively with 8K video. pr complex 3D models.

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!
