The Movement Control Order has made companies that traditionally rely on employees to physically be in the office to work to instead work from the home and laptops are slowly becoming the main PC at home since they are portable and sufficient for processing documents, light photo editing while providing entertainment through online services and you can simply hook up a monitor for more real estate to work with.

If you are one of those involved with the transition of remote working, Acer has 3 tips to get you started with their product. Each of them highlights specific issues that can be merited or tailored for certain tasks through its inherent product design.

1. Long-lasting battery life – Acer Aspire 3 / Swift 5

Sometimes the power outlet is just too far for you to connect your laptop with the power brick so a battery life that can last you through the entire work session is the most important for most document workers. With the Acer Aspire 3, you can skip short of juicing up the device halfway through your work. With 7.5 hours of uptime coupled with power-efficient 10th Gen Intel processors and SSD boot drive, a single full charge will let you carry out tasks throughout the day while feeling snappy and responsive. Still not enough because of working overtime (At home? Really?)? The Acer Swift 5 pushes the everlasting power game to the maximum, clocking in at 11 hours.

2. Match your workload with adequate performance  – Acer Nitro 5

Even though watching Youtube or scrolling through Twitter may not require tons of horsepower, any other workload that needs number crunching, processing, encode or decode files will certainly choke out normal laptops. Therefore, you will need one that includes a high boost clock CPU, great read and write speed in the form of SSD, and a graphics card that supports the latest video and image processing technology. The Acer Nitro 5 will provides all these without breaking the bank too much and you can work, game and entertainment within a single device. It also supports up to 120Hz of refresh rate on certain models, if you need the smooth and sleek experience.

3. Expand workspace with external monitor – Acer KG241QA

Big monitors are the go-to expansion that a laptop user could ask for, as more space to work with equals higher productivity. You could compare 3 to 4 documents at once, run programs at a higher fidelity, or just simply have 100 shortcuts placed on the desktop for easy access. But in case that your table is not big enough to hold one of these big boys, finding one with VESA mount support is a must. The Acer KG241QA matches the description perfectly as it is a 24-inch 144Hz 0.6ms monitor that is suitable for both work and gaming and VESA mount compatible as well.

Looking for something for the living room instead? Then the Acer C250i projector might do the job for you, as it is the 1st auto portrait LED projector in the world.
