We really don't have much of a clue what Acer is up to here, but it's a bit of an exception when Acer isn't doing something completely predictable with its product lineup and design direction, so we though we'd give you a heads up. The "Gemstone concept" is apparently a new Acer Aspire laptop line, or so it seems -- the promo material is a bit obtuse. It could very well look totally gaudy, but we suppose we'll find out on Friday, and it's pretty much impossible to look much more ridiculous than Acer's Ferrari lineup, so how can we lose?
