Acer has kicked things up a notch with the AspireRevo. A new version of the nettop featuring a dual-core Atom processor, full-featured Nvidia Ion integrated graphics, and Windows 7 Home Premium should be now be "available in the U.S. via leading online technology retailers" for $329.99, Acer has announced.
The immediate availability announcement seems a tad premature, because we can't find the system for sale just yet, and Windows 7 isn't even properly coming out until October 22. Still, the new AspireRevo R3610-U9012 will certainly deliver a nice set of specs for the price when it actually ships out to consumers.
Aside from the aforementioned features, this nettop also includes 2GB of DDR2 RAM, a 160GB hard drive, built-in 802.11n Wi-Fi, HDMI output, an external Serial ATA port, a card reader, and a wireless keyboard and mouse. No optical drive, but as you can see in the image above, the small form factor means you can slap this thing neatly out of sight behind a monitor.
Acer first announced the AspireRevo back in April, but it took until late last month for a variant to reach Newegg's listings. That version has a different model number (AR1600-U910H), costs just $199.99, and comes with a single-core Atom, DirectX 10-free Ion LE graphics, Windows XP, and wired peripherals.
