Acer AspireRevo Nvidia Ion LE Variant Hits U.S. Shores For $200

Illustration for article titled Acer AspireRevo Nvidia Ion LE Variant Hits U.S. Shores For $200

The Acer AspireRevo nettop (a netbook for your desktop, get it?) is nothing new, but the one with an on board Nvidia Ion LE graphics card is something special, and it's available now for $200 over at Newegg.


Inside, this nettop is pretty much traditional netbook save for the graphics, which means affordable 1080p HD video watching, if you're so inclined, for a respectable price. As we've said before, this is a feature that's changed cheap consumer computing, like, forever.


The rest of the deets are your standard netbook fare:

1.6GHz Intel Atom processor
1GB of RAM
160GB hard drive

However, as Liliputing notes, since Adobe Flash isn't optimized on this graphics processor just yet, there will be some choppy playback of high quality/HD video on sites like YouTube and Hulu. Also, it kind of looks like a kid's toy. A pretty powerful, cheap little kid's toy. [Newegg via Blogeee via Liliputing]

I don't get it, what's the point of a nettop?

You can buy a duel core desktop for about $400-$500, with a screen.

I guess they're good for use as a HTPC, but besides that, I don't know what else they could be used for.
