Acer to reveal new AMD-based Revo HTPC at IFABy Matthew DeCarlo
Acer is preparing to rip the covers off a sleeker version of its Aspire Revo home theater PC at this year's IFA. The Revo RL100 appears to be quite a bit thinner than its predecessor and, as Netbooknews notes, the system is a little remindful of the PlayStation 2 Slim. The machine is powered by a dual-core 1.3GHz AMD Athlon II Neo K325 processor, along with Nvidia Ion graphics.
The specs are rounded out by 2GB of RAM, a 160GB HDD, a DVD burner, 802.11n wireless, Ethernet, three USB 2.0 ports, HDMI output, S/PDIF connectivity, and it comes preloaded with Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit. It also ships with a "Revo Pad" wireless remote control with illuminated touch keys, a multitouch trackpad, and can be slipped into the Revo's chassis when not in use.
Pricing isn't available at the moment, but IFA kicks off in Berlin this Friday, September 3. Early shipments are underway (or will be shortly) in Asia and Europe, but there's no word on US availability.
