Acer teases sliding-hinged notebook alongside Star Trek film
<a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283953==http://us.acer.com/" rel='nofollow'>Acer</a> is using its tie-in with the movie <em>Star Trek: Into Darkness</em> to tease a notebook with a sliding-hinge screen. The clip, which intersperses clips from the film with that of the notebook sliding down a textured wall, calls it "A Unique Notebook" that will be revealed on May 3rd, ahead of the movie's own release on May 17th. <br />
<br />
The clip provides little in the way of clues as to what the notebook is named, or even its specification. The Windows 8 branding at the end of the trailer could suggest it will have a touchscreen display, though not its size or resolution. The sliding hinge on the back appears to allow the screen to hinge like a normal notebook conventionally does, but also along the screen mount itself, letting the display rise higher from the keyboard, and be placed in a more optimum viewing angle. <br />
<br />
The accompanying <a href="http://macnn.com/rd/283954==http://explorebeyondlimits.com/" rel='nofollow' target="_self" title="">website</a> provides details for the Iconia W510, Aspire S7, and Aspire V5 Touch, along with various <em>Star Trek</em> imagery, but nothing about the notebook in the trailer. <br />
