The Acer Aspire Revo nettop which has been on the market for the past year or so really looks more like a multimedia box that you would stick next to your TV than a full fledged computer. I mean sure, it can run Windows XP or Windows 7, but the killer features are the low price, small size, and NVIDIA ION graphics for pumping out HD video.

So perhaps it should come as no surprise that Acer is giving its new line of multimedia devices the Revo name. Acer introduced the new Revo family today. The products include:

  • Acer Revo multimedia center – An all-in-one media center PC with a wireless remote called the RevoPad which serves double-duty as a keyboard and a touchpad with multitouch support
  • Acer RevoView media player – Basically a hard drive enclosure that connects to your TV with HD video support (plus a remote control and support for USB storage devices)
  • Acer RevoCenter home storage appliance – Networked attached storage device for storing your media and streaming it over a home network

Acer is also introducing new software called clear.fi that is designed to make it easier to share media across these different devices as well as Acer computers and phones.

There’s no word on pricing or availability yet. But in the meantime, you can pick up an Acer Aspire Revo nettop with Windows XP and NVIDIA ION LE graphics for around $200.

Update: The folks at Blogeee snagged some press shots of the new gear, including the funny looking RevoPad remote control, which you can check out after the break. Hit up Blogeee for the rest of the photos.

  1. I have been an ASUS bigot since I got my first netbook. I was looking intently at getting an ASUS nettop, but due to unforeseen circumstances, I ended up getting an Acer Revo nettop. I got the Windows 7 version ($330), primarily due to the dual core Atom CPU and 2GB RAM (the $200 XP one is single core, 1GB RAM), and I have had nothing but great experiences with it so far. The screen resolution needed some tweaking to work with my HDTV, but nothing major.

    The wireless kb/mouse are wonderful, the multitude of ports are well-appreciated, and performance is better than expected. I can watch HD video, DVDs (using an external USB DVD Drive), and browse the web without any problems.

    I’m usually one to warn people away from Acer, due to previous experiences with laptop quality, but the nettops are a horse of a different color.
