Acer announce the redesigned All-in-One Acer Aspire 5600U
The Acer Aspire 5600U is a completely redesigned All-in-One with an elegant, extremely slim profile – less than 35 mm – adding a touch of sophisticated style wherever you place it.
Despite the Aspire 5600U’s slimness, this desktop PC is packed with advanced features to deliver a premium performance, with a full HD touch-screen and the ability to recline to a 60 degree angle.
The semi-transparent enclosure accommodates the hard drive, Blu-ray player and screen. The floating design of the Aspire 5600U perfectly matches with its wireless keyboard and mouse that offer a simple yet stylish decoration on transparent material.
The impressive 23’’ edge-to-edge frameless screen lets you enjoy Full HD imagery for cinematic entertainment, graphics-intensive applications, games and TV enjoyment. The exclusive VESA mount kit allows you to view HDTV on the wall, for a cinema-like experience in the home.
It also offers an advanced 10 point touch technology to ensure a smooth and highly responsive multi-touch experience. The desktop can recline to a 60 degree angle, so the touch capability is enhanced ergonomically. Plus, improved gesture recognition offers greater functionality, delivering a faster, more intuitive, and fun experience.
