HD media streamer from Acer

Acer Aspire RevoView

Acer recently launched its new HD media streamer Aspire RevoView. It looks like Acer nettop. So, it isn’t so stylish like ASUS’s media players. The functionality also looks similar to other players on the market – 1080p playback of all well-known codes and containers from internal 3.5″ HDD, attached USB storage or network shares. The streamer’s range of ports are also standard – HDMI, S/PDIF, USB 2.0, Ethernet. But additionally the Aspire RevoView sports card-rider and miniUSB port which allow to connect it to PC as ordinary external HDD.

The Acer Aspire RevoView 1080p streamer should already available with price ~$200.

Acer demonstrated its all-in-one PC Z5600 on the Computex Taipei 2009. It’s equiped with 23-inch LCD display supported multi-touch interface and HD resolution. The Z5600 is powered by Intel Core 2 Duo processor and contains DDR3 memory, 3.5″ SATA-II HDD, hybrid TV tuner card, gigabit Ethernet, a/b/g/n WiFi adapter, HD webcam and HD speakers.

As I see the Acer Aspire Z5600 can be used as control panel for home automation system like LinuxMCE or you may combine it with media client.
