Acer Aspire L200 Windows Media Center

June 8, 2005

Acer is jumping on the Windows Media Center bandwagon with a low-profile (and relatively low priced) offering, including an Athlon 64 3200 CPU, 160 GB SATA drive, and a dual-layer DVD burner, according to the UK-based PC Advisor.

Acer digital home product manager James Wright describes it as the first “low profile, living room-style home PC”. Other vendors have so far failed to successfully fulfil this remit, claims Wright, producing units that more closely resemble “1980s video recorders”.

The 53mm-high L200 runs Windows Media Center 2005 and is powered by an AMD Athlon 64 3200 processor. It comes with a 160GB Sata (serial ATA) hard disk, dual layer DVD- /-RW drive and includes DVI and Scart connections as well as a combo Freeview and analogue TV tuner. Likely pricing will be around £800 inc VAT.
