Acer-Aspire-7600U

Acer has become the most recent company to announce new Windows 8-oriented computers – this time coming as all-in-one PCs, specifically designed to take advantage of Windows 8’s touch centric interface.

The first model, known as Acer Aspire 5600U comes with a 23-inch touchscreen display that offers 10-point multi touch input and Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside the 5600U packs an Intel Core i5-3110M processor at 2.4 GHz, integrated Intel HD 4000 graphics, 8 GB of RAM and a 1 TB hard drive. The machine also has built-in Wi-Fi 802.11n, HDMI, Bluetooth, a multi-card reader, VESA wall mount and Windows 8 pre-installed.

The other model – the Acer Aspire 7600U – offers a 27-inch display with the same 10-point multi touch input and 1920 x 1080 resolution and more powerful hardware. Inside you will find an Intel Core i5-3210M processor, 8 GB RAM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M discrete graphics, a Blu-Ray drive and two HDMI ports instead of one. Again the 7600U comes with built-in Wi-Fi 802.11n, HDMI, Bluetooth, a multi-card reader, VESA wall mount and Windows 8 pre-installed.

In addition to the new all-in-ones, Acer introduced two similarly sized monitors with multi touch capabilities. The 23-inch T232HL costs 500 USD while the 27-inch T272HL is 700 USD. Both feature IPS 1920 x 1080 panels, built-in speakers, three USB 3.0 ports, VGA, DVI, HDMI, and the ability to tilt back up to 60 degrees.

The new Acer Aspire 5600U will become available on October 26 and will sell for 1150 USD for the touch screen model and 1000 USD for the model without a sensor display. The faster 7600U will hit stores at the end of November for a price of around 1900 USD.
