New Acer Aspire Z5761: A touch of style and performance London, 6th April 2011 – Acer introduces the new Acer Aspire Z5761: combining great performance, excellent entertainment and stylish modern design, this all-in-one desktop heralds next generation computing. Thanks to the screen with multi-touch functionality, the Aspire Z5761 not only offers a dynamic user experience, but also delivers one of the easiest ways of interacting with your PC and integrating all your multimedia contents. Starting point for this smarter way to access the PC and the web, the Acer TouchPortal provides a truly hands-on experience bringing together a full suite of touch enhanced applications and gadgets for fun and entertainment: * TouchBrowser is a touch-friendly web browser designed for searching, retrieving and presenting information from the Internet. * TouchCam features handy touch controls to add fun video effects while chatting online, or do theme-style recording and share with friends on YouTube™. * TouchMusic, lets you browse, manage and play your favourite music. * TouchPhoto integrates photo management with photo sharing capabilities and is designed to interact with both local images and online albums. * TouchVideo includes video management and sharing features. It allows you to enjoy Blu-ray or DVD movies and home videos, as well as browse and share your videos to YouTube. But the Acer TouchPortal is not the only way the Aspire Z5761 brings your digital life together. It also comes with Clear.fi, Acer’s new media sharing system based on the idea that it’s easier if all multimedia content is simply brought into a single system with a common interface. No matter where they are. Clear.fi is a cross-platform solution that works straight out of the box, automatically detecting the Clear.fi-enabled devices connected to the wireless home network, and then allowing all digital content stored on any of these to be shared seamlessly using the Clear.fi media interface. Featuring a modern, minimalist design, the Aspire Z5761 easily fits into any décor, gracing any living or working space with a sophisticated look and feel. Sharp-cut geometric lines set off the combination of aluminum with matt and glossy black surfaces, creating a luxurious effect. Cool blue lighting placed above the integrated speakers lights up the keyboard. When not in use the keyboard can be nicely tucked away below the PC, enhancing the overall minimalist look as well as increasing the free area in front of the desktop. Inspired by modern art, the silver stand is designed with a window for organizing cables while keeping a simple, yet stylish design. Performance-wise, this is an advanced PC, rich of cutting edge technologies engineered to convey an enhanced computing experience. Exploiting the 2nd generation Intel® Core™ processor family, that features Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0, capable of increasing perfomance in response to the most demanding tasks such as editing multimedia files, or playing fast-paced games, this desktop can deliver optimal speed enabling smoother multitasking and ensuring maximised entertainment and productivity. What’s more it combines turbo-charged computing power with energy efficiency. Top-quality visual and audio components make the most of your entertainment. With a spacious 58.4 cm (23”) Full HD 1080p 16:9 display, fast 5ms response and powerful graphics solutions, you will catch even the tiniest details of your favourite movies, games, pictures, and digital TV thanks to ultra-sharp and colorful imagery. Captivating and immersive audio is brought about by an integrated 5W stereo speaker system and professionally tuned Dolby® Home Theater® v4. With a Blu-ray Disc™ optical drive (optional), multi-in-one card reader, and TV-tuner (optional) these models bring together all facets of your digital life, from movies to games, from TV to pictures: an all-in-one design also in terms of entertainment. Full connectivity is ensured by the most advanced wireless and wired technologies: 802.11b/g/n network connection, Gigabit LAN and optional built-in Bluetooth® 2.1. The built-in microphone and high definition webcam will help you keep in touch with friends and family through video chats and conference. In terms of storage, up to 1.5TB of capacity offers plenty of space for all your digital archives. Up to 8GB of DDR3 memory ensure seamless running of the most demanding application, while a total of eight USB port supplies handy connection to all your peripherals. The Aspire Z5761 will be available in early May with prices starting from £799 inc Vat
These types of PC's are great space savers but it is hard to come across one that really gives you a bang for your buck. Acer seems to be getting it right with this one for the average computer user. This would be good for a college dorm if all you need is to watch movies and browse with possibly a little photoshop or light autodesk work.
I am not surprised ACER is one of those companies that never slow down like MSI (which has so many models of laptop it is utterly ridiculous) does and just keep on producing no matter what. I guess they make them in smaller quantities or something otherwise I have no idea how they make money. Of course they also own so many OEM's it is quite possible just to throw them down a level and everything ends up at E-Machines last right lol after going through gateway!
i work for a big box retailer in the returns department and i see these AIO touch screen pc's come back more than anything else. i dont like the whole fact that if your pc fails and you have no tech knowledge you have to send the whole thing back ala Mac.....give me a big enormous 8 fan blue LED, 8 hdd, dual gpu, 6core beast anyday!!
