Acer’s Revo RL100 media center is now available Stateside, which is a good half year after said box hit the Asian continent. Well, better late than never, no? Touted to be a digital hub, the Revo RL100 is no slouch when it comes to performance as well as versatiliy, where it will be poweed by a 1.3GHz AMD Athlon II K325 processor, hosting a 720GB hard drive, 4GB RAM, a trio of USB 2.0 ports (sorry, no USB 3.0 here to keep it future proof to a certain extent), a multi-memory card reader that ought to handle just about the whole host of memory cards that you can throw at it, Wi-Fi connectivity and Ethernet support.
We like the look of this thing – it is diminutively small, measuring a mere 1″ x 11.81″ x 7.09″, so it should sit quietly in the corner of your living room somewhere without being an eyesore. Even if your pad is already super cramped, the overall design of this should be decent enough to blend in without looking like a Goliath.
You will be able to choose form a couple of models – one with Blu-ray capability while the other without. Running on Windows 7 Home Premium as the operating system, you can pick up the Acer Revo RL100 for $499.99, but for those who think that a vanilla model is too plain, top up another $70 to bring home the Blu-ray capable model.
