Acer unveiled a new small form factor (SFF) system, the Aspire X1700. This PC features a Pentium Dual Core processor, 4GB DDR2 memory and the NVIDIA GeForce G100 512MB graphics card. From what I've heard the GeForce G100 is basically a rebranded G98. Other features include a 640GB HDD, DVD burner with LabelFlash technology, 14-in-1 memory card reader, nine USB ports and eSATA.
Packed with power and performance, the newest model in the line, the Aspire X1700 features an Intel Pentium Dual Core Processor E2200, which enables users to enjoy crystal-clear digital media, create advanced graphics, and handle productivity tasks with ease and speed. The 4GB DDR2 memory provides ultra-fast system response, critical for multitasking and power hungry applications. Integrated NVIDIA GeForce graphics enhance multimedia performance with support for the latest DirectX games. Connect directly to an external LCD or flat-screen TV with HDMI for crisp, high-quality visuals and high-fidelity audio using only one cable.
With nine USB 2.0 ports and a multi-in-one card reader, users can easily bring multimedia devices together. The huge 640GB SATA II hard drive provides enough room to store a vast library of music, movies and games. Watch movies and burn DVDs and CDs with the SuperMulti Drive. With Labelflash technology, personalize CDs by laser burning unique, high-resolution transparent images directly on the label side of discs right after they’re burned.
