Press release, July 9; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Wednesday 9 July 2008]

Acer America has announced the Acer Aspire X1200, a compact entertainment center with prices beginning at US$450.

Offering powerful desktop components and expansion capabilities in a small box, the Acer Aspire X1200 desktop enables users to enjoy high-definition movies, games and theater-like sound while maximizing space in the home, said the company. Featuring AMD dual-core processors, Nvidia GeForce 8200 onboard graphics and PCI Express (PCIe) 2.0, it is ideal for entertainment enthusiasts and space-conscious consumers desiring phenomenal performance in an environmentally-friendly design, according to Acer.

Providing room for expansion, the system offers two PCIe slots (x1 and x16) and for easy access and reach, five USB 2.0 ports, a multi-in-1 card reader, IEEE 1394 port and audio jacks are located on the front of the PC, the company highlighted. Four additional USB 2.0 ports are positioned at the back.

Unlike similar small form factor (SFF) PCs that leverage mobile components with higher costs and lower performance, the Aspire X1200 offers a choice of models that scale up to an AMD Athlon X2 5000 processor and up to 4GB DDR2 memory. The AMD processors support downloadable AMD Live! applications for recording, transferring, sharing and organizing photos, videos and music.
