We review the Acer AspireRevo, a small form PC that makes a compelling case to be part of your living room setup.There’s something to be said about a “desktop PC” small enough to fit in a drawer, yet brawny enough to power a whole entertainment system. Acer’s AspireRevo R3610 nettop PC fits just that role. Hovering around $400 certainly doesn’t hurt its cause, either, except the price may be too good to be true if you’re looking to make this your primary PC.Our AspireRevo R3610-E9012 review unit came equipped with an Intel Atom 330 processor running at 1.6GHz, 4GB of DDR2 RAM, a 500GB hard drive, Nvidia’s Ion integrated video card, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit for the operating system.The Revo R3610 has a nice fit and finish to it, and is definitely small enough to fit on any desk, or nestled in somewhere close to an HDTV for use as a media center. It has a stand that snaps in the bottom for elevation and better air flow, which also kind of makes it look like a small gaming console – it’s too bad that gaming is a non-starter with this thing. The peripherals aren’t the snazziest out there, but they don’t come off as overly cheap, either.Despite its smaller frame, the Revo R3610 is packed with a slew of ports and connections.
The NVIDIA Ion platform has been tested in our lab for the first time, with the Acer Aspire Revo. A competitor to the Asus Eee Box, it has a built-in Intel Atom and takes up minimum space. Designed mainly for desktop use, it also opens the way for HD video and gaming, thanks to the NVIDIA 9400 M chip. In terms of aesthetics the comparison between the Eee Box and the Revo is firmly in favour of the Asus. The Acer looks plasticky and the base is nowhere near as pretty. In transparent plastic, it can’t live alongside the metal arched Eee Box. Best to keep it out of sight! Aesthetic considerations apart, lets have a look at the interfaces, how noisy it is and what it has inside. Noise levels on this computer are low even during intense activity. You do notice the fan accelerating from time to time, but nothing too troublesome. It has the following connectivity: 6 USBs, 1 e-SATA 2 mini Jacks, 1 HDMI, 1 VGA 1 RJ45 and 1 multiformat card reader. This is much more complete than the Eee Box or even many laptops.
