Acer has unveiled a new desktop PC. It’s running on Windows 10 Home, has latest 8th Gen Intel Core i5/i7 processor, 5.97mm thin, FHD IPS Display, Qi Wireless Charging Pad and Acer VisionCare Tech.
This computer is something that you call an all-in-one desktop PC. The display size is 23.8-inch, 178-degree Full HD IPS, the bezels on the sides are 2.7mm so the screen-to-body ratio is 90%.
The built-in wireless connectivity is powered by Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC (802.11.ac 2×2 MIMO). And the audio is 2.1 channel subwoofer with Dolby Audio Premium as well as Acer’s TrueHarmoy that should be able to provide a deep base audio experience.
The amount of memory is 256GB SSD and 2TB HDD storage. You can also tilt the display a bit from -5 to 30 degree. My current Samsung 27″ display doesn’t allow tilting which can become annoying. I like with this desktop the wireless phone charging that will be convenient below the screen.
This won’t be the cheapest desktop! It will be available in North America in January 2018 for $999. In other regions it will come in November 2017 for a starting price of €999. Obviously you get a pretty elegant experience here but will it be worth the price? And will the gaming and performance be worth it?
Acer has played around with all-in-one desktop solutions in the past. One of them was the Acer Aspire U27. That sort of reminded us about the look of an iMac. It’s liquid-cooled and fanless.
Many people still buy these niche products because they like the compact size of things. But you do have to remember that usually you will get a laptop performance experience in exchange for good looks. And also replace hardware parts might be a challenge. Do you like the design of this new computer?
