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.

  1. Are they serious with that weird-ass keyboard monolith (for lack of a better term)? Do they actually expect people to peck out text with that?

    1. The idea is more like a PC remote control, since this is basically intended for HTPC like use for playing media most of the time.  The “monolith” as you call it is also the touch pad and on the corner is a volume control dial wheel.

      So it’s only meant for light, occasional, typing and you should get a regular wireless keyboard if you intend for more serious typing with this system.

    2. I think its fantastic for HTPC use.  Heck, I wish they’d sell it without the computer.

      I like the specs on the upcoming Fit-PC3 better than the Acer and would love to combine it with this keyboard/touchpad.
