ACER has launched the new M series of desktop PCs, which it is positioning as a high-end entertainment rig.
Powered by AMD’s Phenom II range of processors, the new M5300 and M3300 desktops have been designed to deliver HD entertainment, high end gaming, as well as perform more serious multitasking projects.
The device also incorporates an AMD chipset with integrated ATI Radeon graphics that supports a variety of high-end graphics cards. Storage-wise, the two models are equipped with high capacity SATA HDDs with up to 1.5TB of space, while the three internal disk bays allow for significant upgrades in the future.
The M5300 has a brushed metal finish, and features transparent vertical side strips with coloured LEDs. The device also includes an integrated multi-in-one card reader that slots away at the top of the desktop stack.
The M3300, on the other hand, comes with a glossy black case, and has a number of USB and audio ports that are designed for easy access.
The M series comes with Windows Vista Home Premium as standard, but is available in a number of different versions of Linux.
