The Many Flavors of Acer Revo (AR3700, AR1600, RL100)

As you know Acer has put out a lot of different flavors of the Acer Aspire Revo and some are now discontinued and some are still in production.

Let's begin with the one that started it all the Acer AspireRevo AR1600

This little guy packed a punch and was why I started this website.  It featured:

  • Windows XP
  • 1GB RAM
  • 1.6 Ghz Atom 230 (single core) + ION LE Grpahic

You can actually still find this on Amazon for around $200 from third party sellers.

Then came the Acer AspireRevo AR36XX and Now the AR3700. This guy is no slouch. Acer upgraded the machine to Windows 7 Home Premium, 2GB RAM and a 1.8Ghz Atom D525. You can still find it online for around $360

However now we are on the next generation of Acer Revo's with the Acer Revo RL100-U1002 and the Acer Revo RL100-UR20P

The RL100 line brought tons of changes including design, processor, physical drives, and even a cool wireless touch keyboard and mouse. Here are their features

  • 1.3GHZ Dual Core Athlong II Processor
  • 4GB DDR3 RAM
  • 750GB Hard Drive
  • ION Graphics
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • DVD Player (U1002) or a Blu-ray Player (UR20P)
