Acer gets in with an all-in-one or two for all homes

Now that traditional desktop computers are being retired and merged with the traditional monitor, Acer is readying a couple newbies that showcase the power of Windows 8 with the ease of use people demand in an all-in-one.

New models of computers hit store shelves every week, and this week, it’s Acer getting in with a couple of newbies that let families do lots of things, provided they don’t have any plans to move them from the desk.

Why wouldn’t you want to move them?

Well these computers are all-in-one desktop computers, providing fourth-generation Intel Core processor technology, Nvidia GeForce graphics, and up to 1TB of storage, sitting underneath a 23 inch touchscreen.

We’re not saying 23 inch all-in-one computers are the weightiest computers you’ll find, but they’re also not the sort of thing you’re likely to pick up on a regular basis, so will probably want to leave them on a desk somewhere for everyone to use.

Both of Acer’s new models fit in the 23 inch size, offering Full HD’s 1920×1080 resolution in the 23 inch size, with 10 points of multitouch, but its the design and stand that seem to really separate them.

On the slightly less expensive end is the Acer Aspire Z3-615 (above), a 23 inch all-in-one with a stand reminiscent of Apple’s iMac, which will make using the computer closer to that of using a conventional desktop and all-in-one.

Wireless networking is included, as is a DVD burner, with the price starting from $1399 locally.

And on the other side of the coin with a little more money applied, we have the Acer Aspire U5-620 (below), taking a more tablet-oriented approach, except with a bigger stand.

This model can be stand up like an all-in-one normally can, but has a stand that supports tilting, allowing you to push it back and lay it flat, essentially making it a big tablet for a desk.

Pricing for this model comes in at $200 more, starting at $1599 with availability for both coming in at the end of May, which from what we hear, isn’t too far away at all.
