With our dandy notebooks and netbooks, we’re not quite the biggest proponents of desktop PCs. But if they all start looking like Acer’s eMachines EZ16600 PC it might be a different story. OK, so the eMachines might not have the specs to back its stylish all-in-one look, but it is billed by Acer as an entry-level machine.

The PC runs on the Intel Atom N270 processor usually found inside netbooks, and comes with 2GB DDR2 memory and a 160GB SATA hard disk. More interesting though is that the PC is integrated in an 18.5” LCD widescreen display with 16:9 aspect ratio and 720p HD resolution. The Acer runs Windows XP Home and also comes standard with a SuperMulti DVD-ROM, a multi-in-one card reader and embedded high-definition audio. Connectivity comes in the form of Built-in Gigabit Ethernet and 802.11b/g Wi-Fi.

The Acer eMachines EZ16600 PC should be perfect for a family looking to add a stylish, space saving machine to the house, as long as there’s not too much expectation on the performance side.

The EZ1600 starts at R4 499 excl. VAT. Contact Mandy Herbst at Acer for retail information on 011-233-6122.
