Acer Debuts Desktops Aimed at Lowering Total Cost of Ownership for the Enterprise
Acer announced a series of desktops designed to meet those needs with the small form factor Veriton X6620G and mini tower Veriton M6620G. The systems start at the low low price of $300 and can be configured with Intel Core i7 processors, two DisplayPorts and a DVI port for multi-monitor support, and solid state capacitors for longer life.
The X6620G has one external 5.25-inch and one internal 3.5-inch drive bay with PCI-E 2.0 (x16) and PCI-E (x1) slots, while the M6620G has two 5.25-inch bays, six total 3.5-inch bays (two external and four internal) with PCI-E 2.0 (x16), PCI-E 2.0 (x1), and PCI-v2.3 slots. The latter also sports six USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports (with another two USB 3.0 mounted on the front), 4GB-16GB of DDR3-1600 SDRAM, two 500GB hard drives, and a SuperMulti optical drive.
On the software side, the desktops come with Acer ProShield Security, which offers a hidden encrypted drive and file shredder; Intel vPro with Active Management Technology (AMT) 7 for easy management; the Acer Veriton ControlCenter suite, which includes Acer eLock Management, eSettings Management, QuickMigration, and SmartBoot; and One-Button Recovery for simplified backup/restore.
Both machines come with Windows 7 Pro and three-year warranties.
