Acer Aspire 5600U AiO features Ivy Bridge and multitouch

Acer has today announced the introduction of its Aspire 5600U All-in-One PC. The company says the slim chassis is around 35mm thick, with the machine featuring a 23-inch screen with a 1920x1080 resolution, a 5ms response time, 250 nits of brightness, and 10 point multitouch. The PC is powered by Intel's new Ivy Bridge processors, and there's a discrete NVIDIA GPU too.

Acer will offer configurations with both Core i3 and Core i5 Ivy Bridge processors, with all models coming with NVIDIA's GT 630M graphics. Up to 8GB of 1333Mhz DDR3 RAM can be installed in the machine, as well as up to 1TB of hard drive space with an optional 20GB SSD drive for faster boot up times. Two USB 3.0 ports are onboard, along with three USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet, HDMI input and output, a card reader, plus audio outputs. There's also a Blu-ray drive upgrade option.

The company has also included TV tuners in the device, with options for dual DVB-T, hybrid DVB-T, or hybrid ATSC depending on your region. A webcam can be found at the top of the monitor capable of 1080p video, and the whole monitor can be mounted on a wall thanks to VESA compatibility.

Acer hasn't mentioned what the 5600U will cost, or when it will be shipping, but it should be soon. In the meantime, check out our hands-on with the 5600U and the larger 7600U from Computex.
