Last week, it was rumored that Acer would unveil the very first Ion-based nettop this week. That rumor has been vindicated by Acer. The AspireRevo, as the diminutive nettop is called, was
unveiled on Tuesday by Acer and Nvidia.
The AspireRevo pairs a 1.66GHz Intel Atom 230 processor with Nvidia’s new Ion GPU. The Nvidia Ion GPU enables the AspireRevo to support 1080p HD video, true-fidelity 7.1 audio and DirectX 10 graphics.
The nettop features up to 4GB of RAM, a maximum of 250GB hard drive, HDMI/VGA outputs and six USB 2.0 ports. To put the stats into perspective, the nettop measures 7.1 x 7.1 x 1.2 inches (about the same size as a hardcover book). Its pricing and release date are still awaited.
