Taiwanese touchscreen PC with a twist
As well as tablets and Ultrabooks running Windows 8, Acer also unveiled two touchscreen all-in-one PCs.
The Acer Aspire 7600U and 5600U measure 27 inches and 23 inches respectively with Acer keen to point out their exciting hinges. Both models can tilt and swivel, orienting the all-in-one PC in all sorts of strange ways. When rotated into portrait mode and stood up, Acer said its all-in-one PCs became the 'world's biggest ebook reader'.
When lying down, the all-in-one can swivel around, while its hinges allow it to lie flat, be titled slightly or stand upright like a normal PC monitor.
The 7600U has support for 64 seperate points of touch, so 64 fingers could touch it at once and it would register each one. Both models include Dolby surround sound and Acer said they were designed as an 'everyday family hub' but could also be used as a normal PC.
Unfortunately Acer didn't say when the Acer Aspire 7600U and Acer Aspire 5600U would be available, or for what price. The new all-in-ones are similar to Lenovo's own upcoming touchscreen all-in-one PC, the IdeaCentre A720.
