Acer puts out Core 2 desktop duo

updated 03:20 pm EDT, Thu May 10, 2007

Acer SA90 and S290

Acer on Thursday followed up its Gemstone notebook announcement with news of a pair of fresh desktop PCs. Updated versions of the home-oriented Aspire SA90 and work-minded AcerPower S290 are each designed to be as fast or frugal as needed with the option of CPUs as low as a Celeron D and as quick as the Core 2 Duo. The two are also exceptions to most PCs with integrated Mirage 3 graphics from SiS rather than Intel. 3D-focused buyers can plug a full-speed PCI Express card into the SA90.

Prices and ship dates for the upgraded desktops are unknown. The AcerPower model is most likely to arrive in the US and should come preloaded with Windows Vista Business; no mention has been made of the Aspire's release areas, but the system should ship with a minimum of Vista Home Basic.
