Summary: The Revo is a 98-pound weakling compared to our favorite HTPC, Asrock’s Vision 3D, but it delivers sexier looks, a bigger (albeit slower) hard drive, a keyboard and trackpad, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, and a significantly smaller price tag. If you’re primarily interested in a home-theater PC for playing Blu-ray movies and streaming media, this is a solid choice.
Pros: Sexy design, incredibly thin, slick wireless trackpad/keyboard, and very quiet.
Cons: Underpowered CPU, integrated graphics, and single-channel memory.
Conclusion: Really, though, the Revo's biggest flaw is its most eye-catching feature. The slide-out combination keyboard/mouse, while it looks great, is cumbersome in actual use, largely because there's no way to use the mouse and keyboard at the same time. Windows navigation is built around the assumption that you'll be able to do this, but Acer's made it impossible unless you connect a separate keyboard.
Excerpt: Acer’s original Revo was an attractively styled home-theatre PC that delivered media-centre facilities through nVidia’s Ion technology. It combined Intel’s low-power and speed-starved Atom processor with a graphics-friendly nVidia GeForce 9400M. Now we have the RL100, a more modern and sophisticated version that adds 3D Blu-ray playback to the mix.
Excerpt: Acer, the fourth largest manufacturers of desktop computers in the world, is also pretty well known for its stylish designs and bold features, when it comes to desktop computers. Ever since they have started producing computers, they have been facing stiff competition from the likes of Sony, Hewlett Packard and Dell. In spite of that [...
Excerpt: There's something seductive about slimeline black slabs of technology. Perhaps it's the indoctrination that black monoliths are a gateway to some godly realm or better yet, that they might play your Blu-ray discs without making too much of a racket.
Conclusion: Para um PC tão pequeno, o Acer Revo RL100-UR20P é capaz de juntar um Blu-ray player, controle remoto que funciona como trackpad/teclado wireless e muitos outros recursos em um preço que fica abaixo dos $600.
Pros: Chassi compacto. Combo trackpad/teclado wireless. HD com capacidade decente de 750GB. Reprodutor Blu-ray. Capaz de reproduzir vídeos online em 1080p.
Cons: Mau desempenho nos testes. Adesivos cafonas. Fonte de alimentação externa. Muitos bloatwares.
