Acer Rejigs All in One PC Range

Acer has updated its family of high end all in one computers by swapping the Core 2 Duo processors for Core i3, i5 and i7 processors while tweaking a few features.

Two new models, the Aspire Z5710 and the Aspire Z5700, have been introduced, both of them featuring a 23-inch multitouch widescreen display that supports Full HD resolutions, making full use of Windows 7's native support for touch displays.

Acer said in a press statement that "Besides being a fun and engaging way for everyone to manage and share digital content, multi-touch technology means you can use more gesture combinations for a wider range of functionalities and a more natural and intuitive approach".

These two computers support up to 8GB DDR3 memory and 2TB hard disk drives; you can also opt for a 160GB SSD as well. Graphicswise, the Z5700 uses the onchip Intel graphics solution while the Z5710 customers can choose between the Geforce G210M or the GT240M.

Other features include Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, Acer's proprietary range of bloatware called Touchportal, a slot-in Bluray Optical drive, card reader, a HDMI port (great!) and a HD webcam. You can also add in an optional TV-Tuner, all encased in a great looking aluminium chassis.

Both models are set to be launched on the 1st of August but pricing has yet to be confirmed.
