We’re on the cusp of a streaming war in Australia, and your lounge room will be the battlefield. Acer has a weapon of a home theatre PC for your consideration that might help you get some more lean-back entertainment in your life.
The Revo One is a stout little HTPC with a few different configurations to get your lounge room into the 21st century. You can get it with either an Intel Celeron processor or a Core i3/i5 processor and a variety of drives. The HTPC has three hard drive bays with support for 2TB storage drives in each, and two bonus SATA ports in case you need more.
You get dual-display support via an HDMI-out and Mini DisplayPort, 4K video support, 802.11AC Wi-Fi capabilities, RAID support and two USB 3.0 ports.
It comes in three configurations off-the-shelf. There’s a $419 model which packs in a 1.4GHz Intel Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM and a 60GB SSD (no drives), $799 gets you a 2GHz Intel Core i3 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 1TB HDD, while the top end model comes in at $1099 for a 2.7GHz Intel Core i5 processor with 8GB of RAM and a 2TB hard drive.
They’ll go on sale at JB Hi-Fi, The Good Guys and Bing Lee from 1 March.
