Acer Announces ConceptD 7 Notebook: Acer Goes Pro With Quadro RTXby Brett Howse on May 27, 2019 4:30 AM EST
Acer is launching not just a new laptop at Computex, but also a new brand. The ConceptD 7 Notebook is the first in a new series of high-end computers targeting creators such as graphics designers and engineers. The ConceptD 7 Notebook mobile workstation is jumping into the Quadro party with the latest NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000.
This 15.6-inch mobile workstation offers a UHD IPS display which is PANTONE validated to the Adobe RGB color space with a Delta-E of less than two. It will offer up to a 9th generation Intel Core i7 processor coupled with the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 5000, with the ability to perform real-time RED video editing at 8K resolutions.
The ConceptD 7 stays thin and light despite the powerful internals, with a 17.9 mm (0.7-inch) thickness and a 2.1 Kg (4.63 lbs) weight, so it should be very portable.
Acer will be offering both Thunderbolt 3 and mini DisplayPort for connecting up to three external displays which can be two 8K displays or three 5K displays.
Full specifications and pricing are not yet available, but the ConceptD 7 Notebook is the first in a new series of professional products from Acer carrying the ConceptD branding, and Acer will be fleshing out the lineup with desktops, more notebooks, and displays.

timecop1818 - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkI looked at keyboard in the article without zooming in. "Wow", I thought. "Another manufacturer that understands us users and puts pgup/down/home/end on separate keys off to the side."
Then I zoomed in... https://images.anandtech.com/doci/14410/ConceptD-7...
What the actual fuck Acer? Fucking media keys? permanently on keyboard? I don't give a shit if this thing has stellar specs or costs $500 I refuse to type on such garbage keyboard lmao.
Rookierookie - Monday, May 27, 2019 - linkYou can get a clearer view here:
It's basically a white Triton 500. There are Home/End keys at the top and PgUp/PgDn accessible via Fn, so it's not a total loss like it's on the Razer Blade.
But I entirely sympathize with you when you say it's a deal breaker. It's sad because they managed to do Home/PgUp/PgDn/End keys with media keys as secondary functions on the ConceptD5; I don't know what they were smoking when they designed the keyboard on the ConceptD7 and Triton 500.
Rookierookie - Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - linkWell this is funny, I saw some real photos of the ConceptD 7 on display, and it looks like those are, in fact, Home/PgUp/PgDn/End keys, but not on the concept photos. In any case, somebody doesn't have their shit together.
timecop1818 - Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - linkYou are right - https://cdn.vox-cdn.com/uploads/chorus_asset/file/... the actual hardware looks like it has correct keys. Then it's not so bad at all.
nathanddrews - Monday, May 27, 2019 - link"Pro" without 10-key?
s.yu - Tuesday, May 28, 2019 - linkI wonder how much they plan on asking for this.
