"We're delighted that ASUS will bring the Alexa experience to its laptop models - providing hands-free voice capabilities, and tens of thousands of skills, to PC customers at their desks and on-the-go". Availability will begin in the United States following an update from the Acer Care Center, but it will eventually roll out elsewhere. Some of the offerings that are being showcased at CES 2018 in Las Vegas will come with pre-installed Alexa app. Amazon and Microsoft partnered in August a year ago to let Cortana and Alexa work together. "Voice is a natural interface for interacting with technology and can make everyday tasks simpler", said Steve Rabuchin, Vice President, Amazon Alexa in the press release. Lenovo, HP, Asus, and Acer are building new Windows 10 devices-some of which are getting unveiled at CES this week-with far-field microphones that will let users activate Alexa with its hotword.
Acer says it's also adding Alexa to its new V6820M and V6820i 4K UHD projectors. Also, most of the supported Acer convertibles and 2-in-1 notebooks have front-facing speakers.

Amazon's latest partnership with PC OEMs is separate from its partnership with Microsoft that aims to have Alexa and Cortana speak to each other. It'll also bring additional support for Alexa-PC integration for making calls and sending messages.
The Acer V6820M/i wireless projector proves to be the delight of movie-buffs, offering 3D home theater experiences with the projector supporting HDR. The company doesn't indicate the brightness of the projectors, but notes that they are compatible with "HDR and Rec. 2020 signals". The projector ensures visuals are ultra-smooth even in fast-moving scenes with the Acer AcuMotion frame interpolation system, which calculates and generates intermediate frames, inserting them into existing ones for seamless motion. That machine will be available in January with a starting price of $1699. Acer dished out the news and some supported product lines (including Aspire, Spin, Switch, and Swift notebooks, plus its all-in-one PCs) at CES 2018, while tech website Thurrott had the scoop on other products. As Acer looks into the future, it is focused on enabling a world where hardware, software and services will fuse with one another to open up new possibilities for consumers and businesses alike.
