Acer's new 20-inch class Veriton Z2640G all-in-one (AIO) commercial desktop is now available in the U.S.
The new all-in-one desktops feature a screw-less chassis design and modular components for easy maintenance and upgrades. Removable feet and VESA wall-mount support enable these systems to be hung on the wall to save space, while a flexible frame that tilts from 6 to 60 degrees can be adjusted for maximum viewing comfort. These systems also come with an integrated 2.0 MP Full HD webcam that can be adjusted up to 180 degrees.
The Veriton Z2640G series includes two models offering a choice of either Windows 8 Pro or Windows 7 Professional. The Acer Veriton Z2640G-UC1007X comes with an Intel Celeron processor 1007U (2M cache, 1.50 GHz, Dual Core) and 2GB SDRAM DDR3 (expandable to 16GB) and is available for an estimated selling price (ESP) of $539. The Veriton Z2640G-UP2117X with an Intel Pentium Processor 2117U (2M cache, 1.80 GHz, Dual Core) and 4GB DDR3 SDRAM (expandable to 16GB) is available for an ESP for $599.
Acer's Dust Defender prevents dust from accumulating inside the systems. This technology leverages an intelligent reversing mechanism in the cooling fan to flush out dust, enabling the components to stay cool.
The 19.5-inch HD anti-glare LED-backlit LCD has a 1600 x 900 resolution, a 16:9 aspect ratio and a fast 5 ms response time. The systems are also outfitted with two HD speakers and an HD microphone. The AIO series provides a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports and HDMI-in for connecting to HD media devices via just one cable. The new models also have 500 GB (7200 RPM) hard drives and a Super Multi optical drive.
The Veriton Z2640G Series comes with a practical portfolio of tools for managing system images and protecting intellectual assets. Acer ProShield, a single-client console application, integrates key security and management features under a unified user interface. It features an encrypted hidden drive for confidential files, a file shredder to purge sensitive materials from the system, and a BIOS import and export tool to streamline system management.
Acer Smart Client Manager helps small business owners and IT professionals administer software and Acer's Recovery Management simplifies backing up and/or restoring a PC's data. In addition, the Veriton ControlCenter streamlines routine IT tasks and features:
- Acer eLock Management password protection to lock removable data devices and other interfaces to ensure that data can't be stolen
- Acer eSettings Management, an interface for configuration and control of the system
- Acer PowerSaver for configuring power levels according to computer usage
- Acer SmartBoot for automatically loading frequently used programs in the system tray at start up
The two new Acer Veriton Z2640G AIO models are available this month with a limited one-year warranty and service. Prices begin at $539 in the U.S.
