Acer has updated its Veriton enterprise all-in-one desktop series, adding two new models: the Z290G and Z410G. The 18.5-inch Z290G sports a resistive touchscreen display, a 1.8GHz dual-core Intel Atom D525, 2GB of RAM with support for 4GB, 320GB of storage, and four USB 2.0 ports. Upping the ante, the Z410G offers a 21.6-inch 1080p display (doesn't seem to be touch-enabled), a 3GHz Pentium E5700, eight USB 2.0 ports, and one eSATA port.
Both have an Intel IGP, a multi-card reader, a DVD burner, gigabit Ethernet, 802.11b/g connectivity, and ship with a keyboard/mouse combo. Veriton machines also come with QuickMigration, PowerSaver and other software. The Z290G starts at $599 with a one-year warranty while the more powerful Z410G will have a base price of $719 with a three-year warranty. Both systems will be available in North America this month.
Meanwhile, the Veriton nettop line has also received a facelift. Acer has announced the N281G, packing a dual-core Atom D425, Intel GMA 3150 graphics, 2GB of RAM, and 320GB of storage. More demanding users can opt for the N282G with an Atom D525 and a second-gen Nvidia Ion. Each has a mini PCIe 1.1 x1 slot, six USB 2.0 ports, HDMI/VGA-out, and wired/wireless network connectivity. Pricing starts at $399 and $449 with an October release.
