Acer South Africa has announced the local availability of the AcerPower 2000, a full-featured desktop PC housed in a stylish, compact chassis that is one-tenth the size of a typical tower desktop.

The AcerPower 2000 utilises the efficient new Intel Core 2 Duo processor that provides up to 40% greater processing power and 40% less energy consumption than previous-generation CPUs, while also supporting Celeron, Pentium 4 and Pentium D processors.
The desktop is built on the Intel 946GZ Express chipset, featuring an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator GMA 3000 for enhanced visuals, while the system boasts up to 2Gb of DDR2 533/667 MHz memory with dual-channel support, thereby ensuring that the AcerPower 2000 can easily handle memory requirements for multimedia and productivity applications.
"The AcerPower 2000 also offers up to 400Gb storage on a SATA 3Gbps hard disk drive, that provides quick data access speeds and eliminates the performance bottlenecks commonly found in previous mini PCs," adds John Geypen, product manager at Acer South Africa.
Despite its compact size, the AcerPower 2000 doesn't skimp on features such as jacks, ports and slots. Eight USB 2.0 ports allow for easy connection of printers, flash drives, VoIP phones and other peripherals. An Ethernet (RJ-45) port provides for simple office LAN or home broadband connectivity.
"The AcerPower 2000's ultra-compact design makes it suitable for deployment in nearly any workplace where desk space is at a premium, and at only 3 litres in volume, with a noise-output performance of just 26 dB, the system achieves the perfect balance between size, performance, acoustics and cost," comments Geypen.
As with all of Acer's products, the AcerPower 2000 features Acer Empowering Technology that assists users to optimise the performance of their system and make the most of its functionality. Acer Empowering tools simplify tasks such as security, disaster recovery, common configuration tasks and noise management.
Available at a recommended retail price of R5 995.00 including VAT, the Acer Power 2000 is aimed at PC users with limited desk space.
