New Acer Aspire Revo & Zotac HTPCs

Yesterday both Acer and Zotac announced some brand new super sexy HTPC machines coming out soon. First up is the brand new Acer Aspire Revo 3700.

This machine is packing some serious hardware this time around including the brand new D525 1.8Ghz dual-core Atom Processor, Nvidia's next generation ION platform, 500GB Hard Drive, 4 USB 2.0 Ports, 4GB of DDR3 RAM, VGA/HDMI/ 802.11b/g/n, gigabit ethernet and mini PCIe slot. There is still no DVD drive included here, but the machine looks super sexy. The only problem is the initial price tag is $580, which seems completely crazy when the current dual core Revo is only $330.

Next up is a brand new super duper sexy Zotac HD-ID33 and HD-ID34(250GB hard drive included) and packs a full Blu-ray drive.

This thing looks absolutely beautiful and includes all the same features as the Acer Aspire Revo 3700 but only comes with 2GB of DDR2 RAM, but packs in 2 USB 3.0 ports. The big thing here is the sexy design and  the full blu-ray drive. there is no price point just yet however. Hopefully I can get my hands on one of these bad boys when they are released.

Check out eHomeUpgrade (Revo 3700) or HotHardware (Zotac HTPCs) for more shots and press release.
