Acer today announced its newest all-in-one 3D entertainment center built around Intel's Sandy Bridge platform, the Aspire Z5763. This latest AIO PC sports an integrated IR emitter and Nvidia 3D Vision technology to serve up 3D visuals on its 23-inch, Full HD 1080p 16:9 display. Audio duties are handled by an integrated 5W stereo speaker system and Dolby support.
3D isn't the only bandwagon Acer is jumping on. The Aspire Z5763 is the first to feature Acer's AirControl motion control technology, which utilizes built-in cameras to detect movements of your hand of fingers to control the computer. Waving your hand in front the machine fires up the media control interface, after which you can move your hand over media controls, like volume, rewind, forward, play, pause, or stop.
On the hardware front, the Aspire Z5763 is configurable with the following:
Intel Core i5 2400s/2500s or i7 2600s processor
Up to 16GB of DDR3-1333
Up to 2TB SATA HDD
Optional 3D Blu-ray
Intel HD graphics; Nvidia GeForce GT4440; Nvidia GeForce GT435M
Eight USB 2.0 ports; headphone/mic jacks; D-Sub VGA
The Aspire Z5673 will ship in the U.K. starting mid-May for around $1,650. No word on when it will ship stateside.
