Acer Aspire Revo AR1600-U910H Video
Not everyone wants a living-room computer, but the Acer Revo 100 is one of the better low-cost HTPCs we've seen thanks to a wisely chosen feature set, its attractive design, and a mostly well-conceived input device.
The Aspire L310 works as a trim, affordable computer that will also serve light home-theater-PC duties. It doesn't offer as much room for improvement as its competition, but as long as you don't have plans for upgrading or running Windows Vista full bore,
Students looking for a lot of horsepower for not much money should check out the Acer Aspire V3 for its under-the-hood quad-core processor...but it won't appeal to everybody.
The 18-inch Acer Aspire Ethos AS8951G is a huge multimedia powerhouse laptop with a unique removable touchpad remote control. It's a clever idea, but one that might be a bit ahead of of its time.
On a price-to-performance basis, the Acer Aspire 5742G-7200 is one of the better laptop buys on the market, as long as you don't mind specs in a plain box.
The Acer Aspire Z5771-UR31P is a decent all-in-one with a responsive touchscreen that will get the job done but don't expect it to be a media workhorse.
You'll probably decide pretty quickly whether you like the Acer Aspire Predator's looks. Those in favor will also find a higher-end gaming PC with reasonably fast performance and plenty of room to expand and upgrade. Not everyone will appreciate the Predator's visual charms, but we recommend this PC to those who do.
The Acer Aspire EasyStore H340 is an affordable and flexible NAS solution for both homes and small businesses that don't require advanced features from their networks.
The inexpensive and lightweight Acer Aspire 3000 offers basic laptop functionality.
As much as Acer's Aspire X3200 surpasses other pricier PCs with its wide array of useful inputs and outputs, you'll have a hard time choosing between it and its otherwise identical dual-core Acer linemate of the same price. If you're a multitasker on a budget, you'll likely prefer this model's triple-core CPU.
Acer Aspire Revo AR1600-U910H Review
The good: Most affordable desktop on the market; HDMI and eSATA ports; low-risk starter PC or light-duty email/browsing station; consumes very little power.
The bad: An Xbox 360 offers the same digital media capability, plus the option to play games, for the same price.
The bottom line: Acer's Aspire Revo 1600 might be the first Nettop we don't actively dislike. We'd rather have an Xbox 360 in the living room, but the Aspire Revo 1600 would be suitable as a PC for young kids or as a low-profile cloud kiosk. Thanks to its $199 price tag, you won't feel too much remorse if it breaks or you outgrow it.
