Acer has just announced a bevy of Windows 8-enabled devices at Computex 2012 in Taipei, and they have some new all-in-one desktops which include the 23-inch Aspire 5600U and 27-inch Aspire 7600U. Both models have an extraordinary feature — tilt and swivel at all four sides, orienting the all-in-one PC in all sorts of strange ways. The display can be tilted 90 degrees from vertical to horizontal and then swivel from landscape to portrait mode. When rotated into portrait mode and stood up, the machine becomes the ‘world’s biggest e-book reader’. See it in action after the break…
This new all-in-one PC from Acer is quite similar to Lenovo’s own touchscreen all-in-one PC, the IdeaCentre A720, that we previously reported. As much as we know, it is layered with a piece of Gorilla Glass, which can handle up to 64 simultaneous finger presses. It includes Dolby surround sound and Acer said they were designed as an ‘everyday family hub’ but could also be used as a normal PC. There are four USB 3.0 ports in total, two on the sides and two at the back. Other than that, it has an SD-card slot and a slot-load Blu-Ray drive on the edge. No details about the processor and the RAM yet.
The machine can be positioned completely vertical to the ground at a 90-degree angle, tilt down all the way down to zero degrees for multi-user tabletop multi-touch operation. The 7600U is only 35mm (1.38 inches) thick, while the other model 5600U sports a 23-inch display is labelled as “the thinnest All-in-One available“.
NOTICE: Comparing it with the 27-inch version, the 5600U actually has a different design, you can distinguish them by looking at the back of the device. The 23-inch model can only be tilted from 30 to 85 degrees.
Acer didn’t say when the Acer Aspire 7600U and Acer Aspire 5600U would be available. The 7600U starts at $1599 while the 5600U starts at $999.
