Acer's New Veriton AIO Desktops, Thin in Stature, Fat in Power

Swift, Smart and Secure, New Acer Veriton Z Series Features High-Performance Quad Core Processors, Discrete Graphics and Efficient System Management

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 1, 2011) - Acer America Corp. has launched a new line-up of slim all-in-one (AIO) desktop systems with 20-inch widescreen LED displays designed for businesses, schools, hospitals and government agencies. A practical blend of efficient design, solid performance and time-saving management and security tools make the new Veriton Z2620G and Veriton Z2610G Series intelligent choices for all commercial environments.

"Our Veriton all-in-one desktops are designed to provide performance without compromise, while conserving desktop real estate and providing a professional look and feel to any organization," said Leila Axelle Robert, Acer Commercial Systems Business Manager. "Ideal for reception areas, call centers or anywhere that space conservation and presentation are a priority, these AIOs feature an Acer software suite that simplifies routine tasks, remotely deploys software upgrades and safeguards critical data. In addition, Intel Core i5 processing and discrete graphics provide an excess of the power required for multitasking in demanding commercial environments."

The new all-in-one desktops include two series: the Acer Veriton Z2620G with a high-performance Intel® Core™ i5-2400s (6MB cache, 2.50 GHz with Max Turbo Frequency up to 3.30GHz, 4 cores) and discrete NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 520M graphics with prices beginning at $849.99; and the Acer Veriton Z2610G with an Intel® Pentium® G620 processor (3MB cache, 2.60GHz, Dual Core) and Intel® HD Graphics with prices beginning at $649.99. Both lines are encased in a slim and understated black and silver chassis to enhance the professional atmosphere.

The 20-inch widescreen LCD displays with a 1600 x 900 resolution provide crystal-clear visuals for easy viewing of spreadsheets, presentations and other productivity files. These systems have 4GB DDR3 SDRAM upgradeable to 8GB via two memory slots for fast multitasking. The new all-in-ones provide all the essentials needed for general productivity with large 500GB(1) SATA hard drives and SuperMulti optical drives for loading software and backing up valuable data.

Data Security Is a High Priority in Every Business and Institution
The new Veriton all-in-one systems come with software for safeguarding valuable information. Acer Proshield has an encrypted hidden drive for confidential personal files, a file shredder to wipe sensitive content from the system, and a BIOS import and export tool that simplifies system management. Acer's One-Button Recovery (OBR) function makes backing up and/or restoring a PC's data simple. If the PC's operating system files are lost or damaged, the recovery process can restore the Veriton's original factory default settings or to the last system backup.

The new AIOs offer several efficient management tools, including Acer Client Manager for enabling IT managers to deploy software and control users' systems remotely. Acer eRecovery Management creates system back-ups, copies configurations and burns factory default images. It also restores user-created HDD images or optical disks, original system configurations and reinstalls Acer applications and drivers. In addition, these systems offer the Veriton ControlCenter that includes:

  • Acer eLock Management for enabling IT managers to deploy software and control users' systems remotely
  • Acer eSettings Management for tracking and storing users' software preferences
  • QuickMigration for quickly updating and transferring personal data from one PC to another using a common network cable
  • SmartBoot for automatically loading frequently used programs in the system tray at start-up

The new Veriton Z family offerings also come with Adobe® Reader®, Windows® 7 Professional and Internet Explorer®. Offering plenty of options for connecting a wide range of digital devices and peripherals, there are six USB 2.0 ports. Fast Internet access is provided by Gigabit Ethernet and wireless 802.11 b/g/n WiFi. Embedded high-definition audio creates high-quality sound for videoconferencing and webcasts.
