Excerpt: PCs make great Blu-ray players, but Acer’s Revo RL100-UR20P is the first Blu-ray-equipped PC we’ve seen that’s thinner and smaller than most purpose-built Blu-ray players. If it played high-definition audio discs such as SACD and DVD-Audio, it would be one of the most powerful Blu-ray players on the market, but this machine isn’t that ambitious.
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.
Summary: If you're looking for a sexy home theater PC that's good at doing one thing and one thing only, playing video of all kinds, look no further than the Acer Aspire Revo RL100-UR20P. This is definitely one of the coolest home theatre PCs we've seen: not only is it super slim at 1 inch thick, but it also has a futuristic pop-out touch-based keyboard/touchpad for all of your home theatre needs.
