Acer Philippines ushers in the holiday season with its “Unbox the Holidays with Acer” promo. Score up to P8,000 worth of Digital SM Gift Pass when you register your new Acer laptop for warranty until Dec. 31.

“The holidays are all about sharing love and joy and what better way to do this than to give gifts?” said Acer Philippines general manager Sue Ong-Lim. “This is our way of saying thank you to our dear customers who have been loyal to the brand all these years.”

Once you’ve bought your gift (and we can just imagine how the recipient will be over the moon with happiness), complete the claiming process by registering the product at Wait for Acer to validate your registration and transfer the Digital SM Gift Pass credits to the mobile number that you provided. Make sure you have the Sodexo+ App on your phone so you can use the Digital SM Gift Pass when you shop at SM stores and merchants.

Which Acer to pick

Acer Aspire 5 is for the one who spends countless hours editing photos and videos, thanks to NVIDIA graphics. It is powered as well with the latest 12th Gen Intel Core or AMD Ryzen 5000 Series Processors for multitasking and productivity.

Acer Aspire Vero is for the sustainability advocate. It is composed of 30-percent post-consumer recycled plastics, from its top and bottom covers and keycaps to its screen bezel and operating surface. The OceanGlass Touchpad is made from ocean-bound plastic.

The “green PC” has the Intel Evo badge and has an Eco+ Mode which allows you to maximize the laptop’s battery power. Its chassis is paint-free and uses standard screws which makes it easier to upgrade, repair and recycle compared to other laptops. It even comes in a 100-percent recyclable packaging that can be repurposed as a laptop stand.

Acer Nitro 5 and Acer Predator are both for the hardcore gamers who do not like to play around. The Nitro 5 is good whether the one you’re gifting it with is a casual gamer or a serious one. It comes with sufficient storage space that games demand. It is suited up for power and performance with powerful processors from AMD and Intel.
The Predator Helios 500, meanwhile, claims to herald the future of gaming. It boasts of a desktop-caliber gameplay with its 11th Gen Intel Core i9 Processor and plenty of high-speed storage. You get cinematic-quality with its 4k Mini LED 120Hz display whether you’re playing the most visually intense games or binge-watching those addictive TV series.

The Helios 500 saves the user the worry of overheating with its 5th Gen AeroBlade 3D Fan Technology and Vortex Flow. Stay in the zone with the Predator Pulsar Lighting, you can even match your keyboard lighting with the colors on your screen.For more information on the “Unbox the Holidays with Acer” promo, follow Acer Philippines on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter or go to
