Acer is hoping to capture a bigger share of the growing digital home market with the launch of a new multimedia PC. The Acer Aspire offers seven entertainment “modes” including internet radio, television and CD/MP3 player. “While convergence technology is gradually taking hold in the Middle East, the concept is still often misunderstood by many people,” said Philip Ashkar, director of sales and marketing, Acer Middle East. “Consumers can now use their PC to control their entire household entertainment functions, whether it be watching television or DVDs, to storing, downloading and playing music.” The Aspire RC950 features a remote control, media buttons on the system panel, and keyboard hotkeys, which make it easy to switch between the different entertainment modes. An eConsole, described as an intuitive user interface, is designed to make it easier to use the multimedia functions, while on the hardware side the Aspire RC950 is powered by Intel’s 800MHz Pentium 4 processor with hyper threading and comes with the 915G chipset.
