Acer has unveiled two new mini-desktop computers as part of its Veriton lineup. They should both look pretty familiar to anyone who has ever seen the Acer Aspire Revo 3700, since they’re basically the same computer with a different sub-brand name slapped on the side. Acer is also pushing the Veriton series with Windows 7 Professional and higher price tags than the Aspire Revo.
The Acer Veriton N282G is the media powerhouse of the bunch, featuring a 1.83GHz dual core Intel Atom D525 processor, NVIDIA ION 2 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 memory, and a 320GB hard drive.
The Veriton N281G is more of a budget model, featuring a single core 1.83GHz Intel Atom D425 processor, integrated Intel GMA 3150 graphics, 2GB of DDR3 memory, and a 320GB hard drive.
While Acer is emphasizing the multimedia playback capabilities of the N282G, the N281G is described as “ideal for basic office tool users as well as for kiosks, hotel front desks, call centers and office receptionists.”
Acer says both models should be available this month for $399 and up. The Aspire Revo 3700, on the other hand, has a suggested retail price of $349.99.
