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.

Acer Revo R70

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.

  1. Without the Windows Tax, this might make quite a nice little Myth box. I wonder how much that would save, if Acer could be bothered? Probably about 10p given the licensing agreement they no doubt have with MS.

    1.  For comparisons the ZOTAC ZBOX AD04 [ZBOX-AD04-U] bare bones E-450 system costs about $262.99, but you’ll have to add your own HDD, RAM, and OS.

      Hard drives especially can be pricey these days as another factor.

  2. You’re not going to be playing the latest 3D game on this machine. The E-450 processor isn’t designed as a powerhouse. 

    1.  True but it can play older games and provide entry level gaming.  Though you can get something significantly more powerful in desktop form at even $500 range.

  3. My heart says pair that with a small monitor and wouldn’t it be a cute little sucker, but my brain keeps asking, what advantage would that have over an ultraportable laptop with the same guts? Maybe a slight price edge.
