Many readers will remember the "netbook fever" that we lived a few years ago. To a lesser extent, several months later some computers appeared under the nettop concept, intended to bring that philosophy to replace the desktop. Acer was one of the first manufacturers to opt for these alternative formats that years later seem to resurrect. The Acer Revo One we discuss today is an spiritual heir of one of the first nettops that passed through the PC4U technician lab.
In the end, it seems that the PC is not dying but it’s simply transformed to suit the needs of the new profile of the domestic user: hybrid, convertible, microPC, Steam Machines or barebones are all kinds of solutions that should keep the PC alive, while the arrival of Windows 10 will help it recover some lost market.

You should go get your piggy bank because this monitor won’t be cheap. 1200 euros when it arrives to Spain this July. It can seem pricy but we are not talking about a regular monitor. Its 34 inch curved panel supports QHD resolutions of 3440×1440 points with IPS technology. As if that is not enough, it is one of the few Gsync monitors this size which sport more input connections than the Displayport. It supports Displayport 1.2 and HDMI (and even though it was not specified in the press release, we believe it’s HDMI 2.0) plus a 3.0 USB hub which can charge smartphones and tablets.
It has a few tweaks for the “gamers”, such as the “crosshair” in screen or a red ambient light that changes according to our PC’s FPS rate. The design is certainly impressive and to anyone with enough money and an Nvidia graphics card this is a dream. A true object of desire.

E5-551G is a continuation of the simple design of Acer notebooks. The body applies a thin and light design. With the exception of the Acer logo on the right the outer lid, there are no other decorations. The outer lid and palm rest, both apply brushed metal technology with impressive texture, coupled with gray black coating, overflowing a sense of mystery. Additionally, the metal material can effectively assist the body to dissipate heat and the firmness is also far beyond the ordinary plastic materials. The body edges apply the currently popular mellow design, so that the whole device looks lively, while the handle feels more comfortable.
