Acer Core i7-based desktop
Acer announced on Monday it will begin selling its first Intel Core i7-powered desktop, the Aspire M7720, in its home country of Taiwan at IT Month 2008, starting on November 29th. The M7720 will use Intel's quad-core 2.66GHz Core i7 920 processor, matching it with 3GB of RAM that's expandable to 12GB. The desktop will also sport ATI's Radeon HD 4850 graphics card with its own 1GB of memory for boosting in-game processing. Rounding out the key hardware specs is a 750GB hard drive.
The base Aspire M7720 will be priced at the equivalent of about $1,200 in Taiwan when it is available at the end of the month. [via DigiTimes]
