Unveiled by Acer earlier this year at CES, the Revo is a personal computer designed as an entertainment centre, providing multi-media sharing, content streaming, and a number of storage options.

Sporting a polished white exterior, curved lines and rounded corners, the Revo is additionally equipped with an SD card port and two USB 2.0 and two USB 3.0 ports, and ships with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
“Acer’s Revo One looks great and is designed to be the space-saving hub for the entire family’s entertainment needs,” commented Katherine Nguyen, Acer Australia and New Zealand head of marketing.
“It delivers a powerful, fast, rich cinematic experience that’s ideal for watching TV shows, movies or photo slideshows.”
The Revo also supports Acer’s Build Your Own Cloud (BYOC) service, providing users access to their files on all of their devices wherever they are.
