Acer introduced a small computer designed to work as a media center at CES this year. It’s called the Acer Revo One; it looks more like an appliance than a PC; and Acer announced at the time that it would be available in Europe in early 2015, but made no promises about a US launch.
Now the Acer Revo One RL85 is officially available in the US.
Prices run between $250 and $600, depending on the configuration.
Newegg offers a model with a Celeron 2957U Haswell processor, 2GB of RAM, 60GB of solid state storage, and Windows 8.1 with Bing for $250.
Twice as much money gets you a model with an Intel Core i3 Broadwell chip, 4GB of RAM, and a 1TB hard drive, along with Windows 8.1.
Or you can opt for a $600 version with a Core i5 Broadwell CPU, 8GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage.
Each model features HDMI and Mini DisplayPort for up to two 4K displays, and three bays that can accommodate 2.5 inch hard drives or SSDs. Two of those bays are hot swappable, allowing you to easily open the case, slide out a drive and slide in a new one.
The Acer Aspire Revo One RL85 is like a little cylindrical tower measuring 6.2 inches high, and 4.2 inches across. It supports 802.11ac WiFi, has two USB 3.0 and two USB 2.0 ports, and an SD card slot.
