Acer L320 Home Theater PC

Acer today announced the Aspire L320. The Xbox-shaped PC is ten times smaller than a standard mid-tower, Acer says, and works just as well as a home theater as on the desktop. To help with this, the computer is one of the first to support Intel's newer GMA 3000 integrated graphics to bolster its Core 2 Duo processor; the chipset ensures that Vista Home Premium and the company's own eMode media center both play videos at full speed. Every model comes with an hybrid analog and digital tuner for recording TV shows and Wi-Fi for linking to a home network.

Prices and availability for the L320 will depend on the specific region, according to Acer, but an AMD-based Aspire L100 will be available with Athlon 64 X2 processors and GeForce 6150 graphics for more budget-conscious home theater enthusiasts. [via The Register]
