Acer Aspire Revo AR1600-U910H

 

Editors' note: This review is part of our 2009 Retail Laptop and Desktop Holiday Roundup , which covers specific fixed configurations of popular systems found in retail stores.

Most affordable desktop on the market; HDMI and eSATA ports; low-risk starter PC or light-duty email/browsing station; consumes very little power.

An Xbox 360 offers the same digital media capability, plus the option to play games, for the same price.

Acer's Aspire Revo 1600 might be the first Nettop we don't actively dislike. We'd rather have an Xbox 360 in the living room, but the Aspire Revo 1600 would be suitable as a PC for young kids or as a low-profile cloud kiosk. Thanks to its $199 price...

Consumer review by:

"this little gem is outsanding! I paid $217 with tax."

 

for the price who could even make an argument that this is not the best period...if you come across one pick it up as you will not regret it.

great graphics card. NVidia yep that's right I watch 3d movies and play my games in 3d. plays games very well. basically does everything and does it well. i've had it over two years without one problem. I even use this to develop software.

one and only one processor could be faster but really who cares. to own one is to love one.

Consumer review by:

"Cnet reviewer's invalid comparison Xbox360 vs this PC."

 

Re the comparison: Xbox360 it NOT a PC - it cannot run Word processing; and, for that matter, this PC also CAN INDEED play games. Xbox360 is limited to 'console games,' whereas this device could play both PC games [and] 'console-emulated' games...

Great as a supplemental PC/workstation and/or entry-level multimedia device.

Too limited/slow as far as CPU and processing power for any true high-end uses.

Consumer review by:

"great performance"

 

I'm really sorry that they apparently discontinued this model for the wireless version that is about $150 more than what I paid for this model. I haven't gone wireless as the wires are all here already. I would have gotten another of this model for my...

Small, dependable, great TV computer add-on. Handles all computer functions. The DVD drive is a component, purchased separately, attached through a bus, an easy replacement for early expiring element of computers.

there are none I can think of.

Competent desktop, ideal as a media server.

 

I purchased two refurbished units to be used as media servers, one for the den and another for the "game room". One of them is used to store recorded TV programs over the air. The other one is connected via HDMI to a flat screen TV which is used for...

Small foot print, enough USB ports to connect peripherals, external SATA port, Competent graphics for gaming, good support for Open GL games, ideal device as a media server

Not the fastest number cruncher, no way to change components other than a motherboard swap

Consumer review by:

Fast graphics card and excellent xbmc support.

 

If you are looking for a computer to run the latest games look elsewhere, but if you want a good open source HTPC with a small footprint and great power use look no further than this running xbmc.

Ion graphics chipset ; Runs xbmc perfectly, starts in under a minute ; 6 usb ports (4 x back, 1 x top, 1 x front/top corner) ; hdmi output to 1080p

Need for extra ram for full vdpau use at 1080p ; Pre-installed OS (use xbmc instead) ; Pre-installed bloatware ; The only system backup is hard drive based and dies with drive replacement ; Intel atom processor

Consumer review by:

Excellent, small computer for casual, normal use.

 

My experience has been totally positive. Although for what I paid I could have gotten much more computer, I can't get one that is so easily stored behind a monitor, a brilliant idea..

With dual core processor, 4 gigs of ram and 500 gig hard drive version, and Win 7, this is a perfectly capable unit for most everything you normally do. I use it to keep my MajicJack up 24/7 - it works as expected

Nothing that I can think of except lack of DVI connection
