  • At the exhibit, Acer showed off its Aspire 5738DG laptop, which lets the user watch media in 3D.

    The notebook comes with polariser glasses to make certain content viewable in 3D, thanks to a special film that coats the screen.

  • Acer's Aspire 1820P notebook has a convertible tablet display that allows multitouch input.

    Windows 7, which the 1820P uses, is the first version of Microsoft's operating system to have touchscreen functionality baked in from the start.

  • The Aspire 5738P notebook also features touchscreen functionality.

    This picture shows the laptop running Acer's TouchPortal, which lets the user drag and drop photos onto a photo wall and access multimedia files and devices using virtual buttons.
