The Acer AspireRevo is a line of nettop computers from Acer Inc., first released at the end of April 2009. It is one of the first desktop computers to pair the NVIDIA ION chipset with Intel's Atom CPU.
When the AspireRevo first launched, model R1600, its basic specs were an Intel Atom 230 processor (1.6 GHz), 1 GB of RAM and the NVIDIA ION graphics motherboard with Windows XP. Since then, the models of this PC have been upgraded with the launch of Windows 7. The R3600 model now features 2 GB of RAM, a 320 GB hard-drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Windows 7 Home Premium edition at $329.00 US. The higher-end model R3610 features 4 GB of RAM, a 500 GB hard-drive, 802.11n Wi-Fi and Windows 7 Home Premium at $399.00 US. Both upgraded models feature the dual core Intel Atom 330 processor and NVIDIA ION, as well as the RAM boost, native 64-bit and DirectX 10 support of Windows 7, graphics and overall performance increases. Although not officially supported for reasons unknown, Windows Vista also runs well if installed.
The combination of low power, relatively low price and support for hardware accelerated video make it suitable for many uses, including as a Home Theater PC (HTPC) or Media Center — for example, running XBMC (formerly Xbox Media Center).
