Acer has announced that it is now shipping the pint-sized AspireRevo nettop
PC to US customers. According to the company, its AspireRevo R3610-U9012 is not only extremely compact, but energy-efficient and packs enough power to "serve as an entertainment center" or even "casual gaming."
The book-sized AspireRevo is armed with a dual-core 1.6GHz Intel Atom 330 processor, Nvidia's Ion chipset, 2GB DDR2 RAM, 160GB HDD, 802.11b/g/n support, Gigabit Ethernet, six USB 2.0 ports (two in front, four in back), eSATA, HDMI and VGA ports, a multi-in-one card reader, USB stereo speakers, a wireless keyboard and mouse, and Windows 7 Home Premium.
Interestingly, there's also a VESA attachment so you can mount the nettop to the back of your display -- quite handy if you're aiming for a sleek setup. You can purchase the AspireRevo R3610-U9012 now for about $330, and it will launch along with Windows 7 on October 22.
