The Acer Revo RL100 is a small form factor desktop computer that was designed to hang out in your living room and power your big screen TV. The little guy has a 1.3 GHz AMD Athlon II K325 processor and NVIDIA ION graphics processor which offer 1080p HD video playback and responsive performance without drawing as much power as some other HD-capable chips. The Revo RL100 also has a wireless keyboard-and-touchpad combination device which lets you surf the web or search for media from your couch.
The RL100 has been available overseas for about half a year, but it’s just now starting to show up in the US. The suggested retail price is just under $500, but Buy.com is offering the computer with 4GB of RAM, a 750GB hard drive, a DVD burner, and Windows 7 Home Premium for $490.
A model with a Blu-Ray drive is expected to be available for $570 soon.
