Built-in battery lasts up to 2.5 hours in between charges

Most all-in-one (AIO) systems won't get very far if you rip the power cord from the wall, though there are a few exceptions. Dell's XPS 18 comes to mind, but for an even bigger screen experience, Acer's new 21.5-inch Full HD 1080p (1920x1080) Aspire Z3-600 will go wherever you go and keep kicking for up to 2.5 hours before its built-in battery battery needs to suck more juice out of an outlet.

Acer's portable AIO has a flexible hinge design and stand that tilts up to 90 degrees. It can lay flat for tabletop computing activities with support for 10-point capacitive touch input. Two 2.5W front-facing Harman Kardon speakers deliver "crystal clear audio that sounds close ot the original recording," Acer claims . Color us intrigued.

As for what's inside, the Z3-600 comes equipped with an Intel Pentium J2850 quad-core processor, 4GB of DDR3 memory, and up to a 750GB hard drive. It also has HDMI output, a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, and Windows 8.

The Acer Aspire Z3-600 will be available to purchase later this month starting at $779.
