Posted on July 13, 2018 by Mehedi Hassan in Amazon, Windows with 2 Comments

Earlier this year, Amazon invaded new Windows machines with the arrival of Alexa. The company partnered with Acer, HP to bring its personal assistant to Windows laptops. These new Alexa-enabled devices from Acer are now available from Amazon, and they come with some sweet offers.

First, if you buy any of the Alexa-enabled PCs from Acer,  you will now get a free Echo Dot — usually worth $50 — with it. This includes the Acer Nitro 5 Spin, the Spin 5, and the Aspire. All of these notebooks have also been reduced by $50 and come with 4 months of free Amazon Music subscription for only $0.99. These Alexa-enabled PCs work and look like the regular versions, except the fact that you can use Alexa on it to get information, control your to-do lists, reminders, smart home, play music, etc.

Here’s an overview of the devices from Acer:

  • Acer Nitro 5 Spin – This convertible notebook is ideal for students and casual gamers It’s powered by an 8th Gen Intel  Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics, has a large 15.6-inch FHD display and ample storage (256SSD and 1TB HDD). Priced at $999.99 (reduced from $1049.99).
