Acer is working on something a new type of All-in-One PC, which uses ARM-based chips for more power efficiency.
The company has just announced the introduction of the DX241H display which can be used for browsing web sites as well as for a wide series of other tasks using the built-in Chrome browser.
It is a 24-inch Full HD resolution (1920×1080) Monitor and features HDMI and VGA video inputs as well as a pair of low-power speakers.
However, the DX241H is capable of doing a lot more than you standard computer display as it runs Google’s Chrome web browser on top of a custom operating system (it isn’t clear at this time if this is a simplifies version of Chrome OS or something else).
This enables Acer’s display to surf web pages, play back media content stored on your network via clear.fi or to access a wide assortment of cloud-based services, effectively turning it into a basic AIO computer.
All of these are achieved with a power consumption of only 49W, and Acer can further improve this figure in future versions of the display by going with a LED backlit LCD instead of the CCFL panel used in the DX241H.
No details regarding the speed of the integrated ARM Cortex A8 processor or the amount of memory anD storage installed were made public, but we do know that the monitor features an USB 2.0 port, an Ethernet port as well as Wi-Fi connectivity.
Pricing for the DX241H has been set at €299 and the display will be showcased during the CeBIT 2011 fair which will take place in early March.
