Acer AspireRevo nettop gets Windows 7, dual-core CPU, more memory


You may or may not recall that a couple weeks ago, Acer’s ION-powered AspireRevo nettop showed up on for the low, low price of $199. While the machine featured some relatively-impressive specs (Atom N230 CPU, NVIDIA ION, XP Home, etc.), there’s now a new entrant to the AspireRevo line that bumps the CPU up to dual-core status, doubles the RAM, and adds Windows 7 Home Premium as well as a wireless connection.

Of course, the price has gone up too.

The Acer AspireRevo R3610-U9012 nettop features the following:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • Intel Atom N330 dual-core CPU at 1.6GHz
  • NVIDIA ION graphics
  • 2GB of RAM
  • 160GB hard drive
  • Six USB ports
  • HDMI/VGA outputs
  • eSATA
  • Card reader, B/G/N wireless, Gigabit Ethernet
  • Wireless keyboard and mouse
  • MSRP of $329.99

The press release states that the machine “is available in the U.S. via leading online technology retailers,” although seeing as how Windows 7 isn’t officially released until next Thursday, the term “available” is being used a bit loosely.

Still not a bad system for the price, though.
