They say that dogs are man’s best friend. But when you’re a broke student, your closest bestie’s none other than good ol’ sales – especially when you’re looking to get a big ticket item, like a computer.

As part of Lazada’s Online Revolution 12.12 Sale, Acer’s giving out discounts of up to 25% on all their items listed on Acer’s Official Store from 12th Dec – 14th Dec 2017. Don’t worry if you’re a tech-noob – take note of these jargon and you’ll be all set on your hunt:

  • Solid State Drive Capacity (SSD): The internal storage space for all your files and data 
  • Random-access Memory (RAM): This allows your computer to run its system and the applications on it
  • In-plane Switching (IPS): This makes the colours on your screen remain the same even when you’re looking at it from all angles 

Whether you’re a photography enthusiast who’s really particular about the quality of your display screen, or a student who’s a “professional” gamer by night, here are some of Acer’s deals that you’re going to want to mark your calendar for:
