One of the unique features of the Acer AspireRevo is its ability to attach to a TV or LCD for additional space savings.

Acer Delivers AspireRevo Nettop to the U.S.

Tiny One-Liter Nettop Provides a Brilliant Visual Experience for Digital Hobbies and Casual Gaming for Just $329.99

IRVINE, Calif., Oct. 16, 2009 – Acer, the third largest vendor in the PC market, today announced that AspireRevo R3610-U9012, an extremely compact, one-liter nettop, is now available for consumers in the U.S.  This nettop is small, energy-efficient and packs enough power to serve as an entertainment center for the entire family.

Ultra-sleek, dark blue and about the size of a book, this space-saving and quiet computer makes it an easy fit for any room in the house. It can be used as a fully functional home office PC or as a multimedia hub for casual gaming when connected to an LCD or television.

Featuring NVIDIA® ION™ supporting NVIDIA CUDA technology and Microsoft DirectX, the AspireRevo enables users to watch 1080p HD movies, play DirectX® 10 games, and enjoy the 3D capabilities of Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.

The AspireRevo is fueled by the low power, dual-core Intel® Atom™ 330 processor, designed distinctly for nettops and netbooks and ideal for social networking, VoIP, email, browsing and other online activities.  The ultra-low-power consumption processor combined with optimized component placement reduces overall system noise for a comfortable, quiet environment.

 “The AspireRevo is a practical and highly adaptable nettop for the home - powerful enough to take on games but so thin, it can be neatly hidden from view,” said Susan Hu, Desktop Product Manager for Acer America.  “It’s also energy-efficient and quiet. Quite simply, AspireRevo provides a pleasant visual experience for enjoying digital photography, HD videos and even casual games, in a surprisingly compact device.” 

Already compact, Acer AspireRevo can easily attach to a TV or LCD, to provide additional space savings.  Via a special mounting system, it can connect to the back of an LCD or TV panel with a VESA attachment, offering an all-in-one capability.  Connected to a large flat panel TV, AspireRevo gives families a small, quiet and fully capable PC in the living area or den for viewing digital photos and videos, videoconferencing and casual gaming with friends and family.

The screw-free design and small size minimize material and packing usage.  Leveraging the ultra-low-consumption processor, it saves power and meets Energy Star® guidelines. 

The system also comes with high-definition audio support, a large 160GB SATA hard drive and 2GB DDR2 memory that enables good performance for a wide range of applications. 

Although the nettop is small, it comes with all the essential connectivity features.  Offering a plethora of ports, the AspireRevo R3610 can connect to an array of digital devices.  Gigabyte Ethernet and 802.11b/g/n wireless provide a fast network connection, while the HDMI™ port replicates full HD video.

Not a bad little system for $329.99! I would definitely recommend it over an all-in-one, even though some of the specs are weaker than those we've seen recently.

Ahh yes, but the screen would have to be separately purchased. At $330, this would be a better alternative. Or you could just hookup your desktop to your TV.

>> but the screen would have to be separately purchased.

That's the big plus, in my book. I've had decent monitors last 5 to 10 years (never skimp on the piece you're going to be looking at every day). You could replace the computer many times in that same timeframe.
