Acer isn’t waiting for Asus (Eee Box) and the rest of the gang to gain grounds in the mini PC market so it’s launching its own version this early.
Is there any more manufacturers can squeeze out of the mini PC market? Unless they’re targeting the LAN party-goers, you can do much with the already competitive desktop PC market. Even Apple hasn’t gone far with the Mac Minis (I even have this feeling Steve Jobs is almost ignoring the minis).
Anyway, back to the Acer Aspire X1200, see specs and shots below:
AMD Dual Core CPU (Athlon X2 5000)
4GB of RAM
Nvidia GeForce 8200
max 500GB SATA HDD
2 PCIe slots
9 USB ports
14-in-1 card reader.
According to Acer, prices will start at $450 and they say this would look good on their 22″ LCD monitors (up to $750).
