Black Acer Revo RL80-UR22 desktop is an attractive and sleek home entertainment hub in a small space, a powerful computer with the added advantage of a home media system. It is offered with a smart wireless keyboard and a mouse, both of which offer you the flexibility to sit anywhere in the room. You only need to connect a screen to the Revo and you're all set. Acer is a reputable company, best known to be a system supplier, instead of a component producer.

You'll get smooth multimedia power and overall performance- productivity and speed from Acer Revo RL80-UR22's 3rd generation Intel Core i3-3227U processor at 1.9 GHz speed (3 MB L3 cache) while using less energy, easy multitasking from its 4GB DDR3 SDRAM memory, 500 GB SATA hard drive at 5400 RPM rotating speed for sufficient space to store you media files, Windows 8 operating system and AcerCloud storage with wireless access to your images, songs and videos regardless of your location and on any device.

You can always upgrade the hard drive to an SSD to make the system boot up in a matter of seconds and help it run quietly, also without overheating. Another possible upgrade is for the RAM- you may upgrade it from 4GB to 8GB to improve performance and get better multitasking. This is a small and lightweight desktop computer that is a bit like Mac Mini, with Intel HD graphics for picture quality and Dolby Home Theater v4 for great sound from any speakers, headsets or your home theater system for even better sound experience.

Acer Revo RL80-UR22 Desktop review
The gem-cut style and little footprint Acer Revo weighs only 2.2 lbs and has the dimensions of 8.26 x 1.39 x 8.26 inches.. You can put it on your desk horizontally or vertically, even attach it to the back of your screen using the removable base stand as it is compact enough. The Aspire Revo is a brilliant small computer that brings your web and multimedia content through Acer to your big-screen television and also to all other connectable devices at home.

Acer Revo doesn't come with an optical drive but a wireless keyboard and a mouse, 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, 4 x USB 2.0 ports at the rear with sleep and charge function, 2 x USB 3.0 ports at the front with 10 times the speed of a standard USB 2.0, an Audio-out port, a Digital Media Card Reader- Secure Digital (SD) Card for easy file sharing, 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet LAN, Bluetooth 4.0+HS to wirelessly hook up to other Bluetooth enabled gadgets like printers and smart phones, an HDMI port to connect it to your HDTV and a DVI port.

Conclusion: Although Acer Revo RL80-UR22 is not for gamers- being cheap and simple, it is great for home entertainment, daily tasks, students and casual computer users. It does look classy so can be conveniently put in your living room to be able to run media as well. It is quite portable at 2.2 pound weight, which makes it ideal for students and business users. Silent, powerful, fast, with great features and connectivity options at a very low price. And if you want something a little better than Windows 8, you can always upgrade to Windows 8.1 easily through the Microsoft site for free. Acer Revo RL80 is well worth its price overall.
