Acer has recently launched the first computer based on NVIDIA’s ION platform. The AspireRevo is based on a low-performance, low-cost 1.6GHz Intel Atom processor but draws on the 9400M-based graphics to run apps and content that are ordinarily impossible on Intel’s reference hardware. Other features include up to 4GB pg DDR2–800 (dual channel), up to 250GB of storage, 4:1 Flash card reader, VGA out, HDMI, 4x USB 2.0, and eSata. Measuring 180mm x 1870mm x 30mm, the device also supports 1080p videos, output 7.1 surround sound audio and is compatible with DX 10 graphics.
Nothing on price yet, but expect to pay between $350 and $450.
