Acer has released a new mini-desktop called the Revo 70. Like the company’s earlier nettops, the Revo 70 isn’t much larger than a DVD drive… although it doesn’t actually have one.
Instead this little computer has the guts of a reasonably decent ultraportable notebook packed into a slim case. The R70 measures 8.26″ x 8.26″ x 2.13″ and weighs just 2.2 pounds.
The Acer Revo 70 has a 1.65 GHz AMD E-450 dual core processor, Radeon HD 6320 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and features 802.11b/g/n WiFi, Ethernet, HDMI output, a VGA port, 6 USB ports, an SD card slot, and audio jacks.
According to the Acer website, the Revo 70 has a list price of $329.99, but most of the retailers that have the computer in stock right now are charging closer to $380. Hopefully the prices will go down soon.
