Acer takes the wraps off a new 21.5-inch, sub-$800 AIO PC

Looking to put a PC under the tree for less than a grand this holiday season? You just might be in luck.

Acer revealed the Acer Aspire Z3-600 all in one desktop PC. The Aspire Z3-600 is powered by an Intel Pentium J2850 processor, 4GB of RAM, integrated Intel graphics and “up to” 750GB of hard drive space, suggesting that the Aspire Z3-600 will indeed be configurable. Though the specs tell us that the Aspire Z3-600 is certainly no high-end powerhouse, it sounds like it could be a good fit for those whose computing needs primarily consist of web surfing, productivity and perhaps some light, mainstream gaming.

The Aspire Z3-600 also wields a 21.5-inch 1080p display, backed up by a hinge that tilts back up to 90 degrees. Connectivity options include USB 3.0, a pair of USB 3.0 ports as well as HDMI.

Here’s what Frank Chang, Acer America’s Director of Desktop Product Management, had to say about the Aspire Z3-600.

“Outfitted with a Full HD display and premium Harman Kardon speakers, it provides superb audio and visuals for movies, games and music. It’s also ergonomic. The flexible hinge allows it to be used in several positions from upright to tilted back or flat on a desk or lap, while gesture control enables commonly used OS functions to be controlled with hand gestures from several feet away.”

Though an exact release date hasn’t been revealed, the Acer Aspire Z3-600 is slated to hit the market sometime this month, with price tags starting at $779.
