Acer has launched an all-in-one desktop called Aspire S24, its slimmest ever featuring a side profile of only just 0.235-inches. Over the last few years, manufacturers have been launching thinner laptops but it is rare to hear about how slim a desktop computer is. However, Acer has launched the new PC that is not only slim but also comes with minimal bezels and 90 percent screen to body ratio. The Aspire S24 comes with a Qi wireless charger – letting you charge compatible devices – and a free 30-day trial of Microsoft Office. The desktop is expected to take on Apple’s iMac.
Priced at $899 (roughly Rs. 58,500) in the US, the PC sports a 23.8-inch full-HD (1920×1080 pixels) display. Inside the Aspire S24, there is an Intel Core i5-8250U processor, 12GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage. It also has an integrated Intel UHD Graphics 620. The company says that the desktop comes with the Intel Dual Band Wireless-AC (802.11ac 2×2 MIMO) technology. Connectivity options include Bluetooth 4.2, Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and Gigabit LAN. Other connectivity options include a USB Type-C port, three USB Type-A ports, and a USB 2.0 port. The PC comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse as well. The device sports a black and matte gold colour scheme.
The Aspire S24 runs Windows 10 Home and has two 2W 2.1 channel speakers with a subwoofer design with Acer TrueHarmony and Dolby Audio Premium. Coming to the wireless charger, the system has a base that supports wireless charging for Qi-enabled devices. It allows users to power their mobile device by simply laying it on the charging area. The Aspire S24 available on Acer’s website in the US, and is upgradeable to a 32GB RAM model.
