Acer announced two all-in-one (AIO) desktop PCs, the 23-inch AZ5 Series and the 21.5-inch AZ3 Series, both of which offer a full HD (16:9) touch screen display. They provide one-touch access to practical information, music, photos and social networking. Users can switch between applications with quick, finger-tip control. It simplifies photo management — images can be cropped, saved and shared with just the touch of a finger. The Acer Browser Magnifier expands reading areas and retains user preferences for easier web browsing.

Acer clear.fi allows media to be managed, stored, shared and enjoyed on any clear.fi enabled devices in the home. clear.fi automatically connects all Acer devices on a network (smartphones, notebooks, desktops, HD media players and storage devices) and then gathers and organizes media files by media type. Users can browse the categories and then drag and drop the media to any of the connected PCs or devices for playback. clear.fi can also be downloaded free from Acer on any DLNA-compliant device.
