The Acer Revo Box RN96 is small desktop computer that measures about 1.3 inches thick and weighs less than 2 pounds. Powered by an Tiger Lake-U processor with support for up to 32GB of RAM, it’s basically a little desktop with the beating heart of a laptop, which should be good enough for most basic computing tasks.
Acer’s latest little computer measures 181 x 178 x 33.5mm (7.1″ x 7.1″ x 1.3″) and weighs about 900 grams (2 pounds). It supports WiFi 6 and Bluetooth 5.1 and features a set of ports that includes:
- 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-C
- 1 x USB 3.2 Gen 2 Type-A
- 2 x USB 3.2 Gen 1 Type-A
- 2 x USB 2.0 Type-A
- 1 x HDMI
- 1-2 x DisplayPort
- 1 x 3.5mm audio jacks
- 1 x Gigabit Ethernet
- 1 x DC power input
There do appear to be some regional variation in the port arrangement – in Germany there are separate mic and headphone jacks on the front of the system and a blue USB port, for example, while the Acer Revo Box RN96 models sold in Japan and the UK have just one audio jack on the front, along with a red USB port and a different looking power button.
Under the hood of each model there’s an M.2 2280 slot for a PCIe NVMe SSD, a 2.5 inch drive bay for a hard drive or solid state storage, and two SODIMM slots for DDR4-3200 memory.
In markets where the Revo Box RN96 is available, Acer offers models with Intel Core i3-1115G4 or Core i5-1135G7 processor options and most of those systems come pre-configured with either 8GB or 16GB RAM and 256GB or 512GB of solid state storage.
