NVIDIA and Acer announced the first NVIDIA ION based PC dubbed Acer AspireRevo. The AspireRevo leaked as Acer Hornet, which is apparently just a project name.
Finally NVIDIA is showing what their ION platform can enable. The Acer AspireRevo is no bigger than a hardcover book, but is able to run Windows Vista Home Premium and deliver 1080p HD video and 7.1 audio. The NVIDIA ION delivers graphics performance that is suited to run games like Call of Duty 4 and Spore. The AspireRevo supports DirectX 10 and also NVIDIA CUDA. Features of the Acer AspireRevo include Intel Atom 230 or Atom 330 CPU , up to 4GB RAM, SATA or SSD storage, NVIDIA ION GPU, a VESA attachment, and Wi-Fi (802.11n on selected AspireRevo models).
The Acer AspireRevo features 6 USB ports, HDMI, Ethernet, eSATA, a four-in-one card reader, and a VGA connector.
There is no information yet on when the Acer AspireRevo will launch and at what price. According to the previous Acer Hornet rumors the price would be below $299.
Via this NVIDIA announcement. Update: in the UK lists the Acer Aspire Revo with a release date of May 18th. The etailer offers the Aspire Revo in four different configurations starting at £179.99, which gets you a Revo with 8GB SSD and 1GB RAM. Thanks Adam P. for the tip.
