Acer Computers has added a new model to its Aspire entertainment-based desktop PC range, the Aspire RC900. Acer released the first model in the Aspire range, the RC500, at last year’s Gitex event in Dubai, and said then that the home entertainment market would be its major focus for this year. It is describing the Aspire range as “enjoyment centres”. “Acer has been aware for the past few months that the next big trend in the region is going to be PCs that provide an entire range of home entertainment options,” said Philip Ashkar, director of sales and marketing, Acer Computer Middle East. “With the launch of the Aspire RC900 we expect even stronger results in the home entertainment sector.” “From our perspective at Acer, we can see that the market in the Middle East is responding positively to the digital home concept. People are thrilled they are now able to buy a product, such as the Aspire RC500 or Aspire RC900, and have, in one unit, everything from a television and stereo to PC and photo album,” explained Ashkar. Acer’s new Aspire is designed to meet the requirements of people wanting a desktop PC that does everything from playing films and functioning as a television to playing music or listening to the radio. “With five entertainment modes including video, television, photo album, music, and PC functionality, the Aspire RC900 really demonstrates just how compact technology and home appliances can be,” said Ashkar. “Featuring a wireless keyboard and mouse, the Aspire RC900 eliminates the mess that cables create and really helps people to save space in the home.” With the most up-to-date processing power, the Aspire RC900 has an Intel Pentium 4 3.0Ghz 800Mhz FSB Processor with hyper threading. With a 120GB HDD, the Aspire RC900 has plenty of storage that allows for the saving of movies, music and picture files. As one of the first PCs to feature a 7-in-1 media reader, the Aspire RC900 enables users to read directly from the most popular memory cards found in today’s digital appliances. Equipped with Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and Worksuite, the Aspire RC900 also has a DVD SuperMultiplus Drive, DVD Drive, 56K Modem, TV-tuner card with TV-out, wireless multimedia keyboard and optical mouse, and Acer Stereo speakers with sub-woofer.
