Acer Introduces Revo 100 SFF Computer

Acer has revealed an upmarket addition for its very popular Revo range of small form factor computers, one named Revo 100, and which unlike the rest of the range doesn't use an Intel Atom processorInstead, it is powered by a dual core AMD Athlon II Neo combined with, wait for it, an Nvidia ION chipset capable of playing full HD content.

Acer chose a black finish with the ability to position the computer either horizontally or vertically on a stand like a PS2 and integratred a TV Tuner.

The Revo 100 comes with up to 4GB DDR3 memory, a 750GB hard disk drive, GbE, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, HDMI, a card reader, two mini PCI Express slots and an optical drive (Blu-ray or DVD depending on the model).

It will be powered by a Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system and costs £600, which is roughly three times the price of the Aspire Revo R3610 for example.

Perhaps the more interesting feature is a RevoPad, a touch sensitive keyboard that also doubles as a remote control and a touchpad and slots in (yes, slots in) the Revo 100's body when not in use.
