With the arrival of Windows 8, the PC industry is using the excuse to flood the market with tons of new options. Take Acer’s new lineup of low-end desktops for the casual user. They are a bit unusual.
These ME micro towers have an Intel Core i5 or I7, 2TB HDDs and up to 16GB of RAM. The chassis comes with a recess desk on top with a USB port for easy charging of your smartphone.
You can also pick up an XC desktop, which is a space-saving unit that features an Intel Core i3, a 1TB HDD and up to 6GB of RAM.
Sound good? Prices for the ME begin at $700, while the cheaper XCs will set you back just $400. Not the most powerful options we’ve seen, but hey, Windows 8 made this happen.
