Acer has not just launched convertible notebooks, smartphones, and tablet devices but also a Mini PC that adds to the big list of devices that are officially unveiled at the IFA 2016 event in Berlin. The Revo Mini PC lineup is not new in the market and the Revo Base adds to the lineup, offering a powerful performance in a space-saving form factor.
The 1-liter chassis of the Revo Base PC measures 5.3 cm in height with a 14 x 14 cm footprint, and there will be variants offering up to Intel Core i7 processors, and up to 8GB DDR3L RAM. The Windows 10-powered Revo Base comes with integrated Intel HD graphics and high-definition sound.
One of the important features of the Revo Base PC is that it can be connected with up to two displays simultaneously through HDMI and DisplayPort. There are four USB 3.1 ports for the other connectivity and additional storage options. For the Internet connectivity, the Revo Base PC has Wi-Fi 802.11 ac.

Additional storage can be added by upgrading the HDDs and RAms, but a MicroSD card slot is also given for the PC to get 256GB extra storage. The actual storage offered in the mini PC is up to 2TB HDD or optional 256GB SSDs.
“With digital content delivery becoming the norm, a compact home entertainment hub offers users the convenience and storage space that laptops or tablets just can’t offer,” said Jeff Lee, General Manager, Stationary Computing, IT Products Business, Acer Inc. “The Revo Base is designed as a dedicated entertainment, browsing and content-serving device that addresses the performance and expandability needs of today’s consumers, while also taking into consideration the space constraints of modern living rooms.”
The Acer Revo Base will be available in EMEA in Q1 2017 with prices starting at €429.
