Acer confirms two new Ethos notebooks for the US
The recently introduced Acer Ethos notebooks have now been confirmed for the US market. The pair is unique as the multi-touch pad is removable and doubles as a multimedia remote, complete with LED-backlit controls. Users can thus use the notebook as a source for a high-definition movie or home video plugged into their HDTV and control it like a Blu-ray player with the touchpad.
