Acer unveils Aspire Z3-600, a 21.5 inch all-in-one portable Windows 8 PC Written by Ron on December 09, 2013 - 05:48PM
Acer, just a few days ago, unveiled the Acer Aspire Z3-600, a portable all-in-one (AIO) Windows 8 powered PC. This device features a 21.5 inch Full HD display, a flexible hinge design, and touch capabilities. The device also features an Intel Pentium J2580 quad core chip, Intel HD graphics, 4GB DDR3 RAM, and a 750GB HD.
"Our newest all-in-one series is our most flexible and dynamic one yet. Outfitted with a Full HD display and premium Harman Kardon speakers, it provides superb audio and visuals for movies, games and music. It's also ergonomic. The flexible hinge allows it to be used in several positions from upright to tilted back or flat on a desk or lap, while gesture control enables commonly used OS functions to be controlled with hand gestures from several feet away," Acer's director of desktop product management Frank Chang stated.
The portable AIO device features a built-in battery offering up to 2.5+ hours of life without having to be plugged into an outlet. The device also features premium audio thanks to Harman Kardon Speakers and Dolby.
“The new series includes two 2.5W front-facing Harman Kardon speakers that leverage precise scientific methods to accurately produce crystal-clear audio that sounds close to the original recording. Combined with Dolby, they provide balanced sound for movies without sudden volume increases and enable clear dialog even during live reports with significant background noise. They also allow users a choice of listening modes to accommodate different scenarios,” Acer explains.
The device also features a convenient stand that tilts up to 90 degrees so you can use it in various scenarious – such as in the kitchen or in the living room. There is also an HDMI port, a USB 3.0 port, and 2x USB 2.0 ports. You can also lay the device down flat and enjoy web browsing, email, games, and much more.
The Acer Aspire Z3-600 runs for $779 and is set to be available later this month in the United States. Interestingly enough, the device runs Windows 8. Of course, you can update that to Windows 8.1.
We are gearing up to go hands on with this device, so stay tuned for our upcoming review. We will explore the device and see if it is worth the price.
