Acer offers new mini commercial desktops

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Acer today announced the new Veriton N4630G series commercial mini desktops for businesses and educational institutions in the United States. The two new models provide tight security and practical manageability in a robust one-liter chassis. The Veriton N4630G nettops are ideal for organizations looking to conserve space, cost and energy. The new models include the Veriton N4630G-i54570X with an Intel Core i5-4570T processor (4M cache, up to 3.60Ghz) available for an estimated selling price of $619 and the Veriton N4630G-i34150X with an Intel Core i3-4150T processor (3MB cache, 3.0GHz) offered for an estimated selling price of $549.

These mini desktops are suitable for most workplace tasks at a lower cost than a fully equipped PC. In addition, the energy efficiency is similar to thin clients, making them a good fit for those who want to keep their traditional desktops and knowledge workers who don’t require the power of a standard PC.

“Our Veriton N4630 series mini desktops are appreciated by IT professionals and small business owners for their reliability, flexibility and affordability,” said Leila Axelle Robert, Acer senior business manager. “The Veriton N4630G series models deliver energy-efficient performance, smart security and handy manageability in a flexible design ideal for bullpens, reception areas, libraries, call centers and other space-constrained environments.”

Sleek and Flexible

The new mini desktops can be mounted on a desk via the retractable stand or attached to the back of a display with a VESA mounting system. The VESA mount provides vertical adjustment, so users can access the power button and memory card reader from the top of the display.

Robust Power and Performance

The new Acer Veriton N4630G Series models feature a high-quality 100 percent solid capacitor mainboard design to prolong system life. They also offer plenty of power for efficient multitasking, word processing, spreadsheets, email and web searches with fast processors, 4GB DDR3 SDRAM (expandable to 16GB) and 500GB(2) 2.5-inch 5400RPM hard drives.

Ample connectivity is provided with two USB 3.0 ports, three USB 2.0 ports, VGA and DisplayPort™. In addition, an SD card reader is provided for reading cards from digital devices such as smart phones and digital cameras. The systems also come with a USB keyboard and mouse, 802.11 a/b/g/n wireless, Bluetooth 4.0 and a choice of either Genuine Windows 7 Professional 64-bit or Windows 8.1 Pro 64-bit.

Comprehensive Management and Security Suite

Tightly managing and safeguarding data is more critical than ever. TPM 1.2 compliant, the systems conform to corporate-level security requirements and lower total cost of ownership over the product’s lifecycle.

To simplify routine IT tasks, the Acer Veriton N4630G series mini desktops are outfitted with practical tools for managing system images and protecting intellectual assets. Acer Office Manager (AOM) enables remote administration from configuring system settings to deploying usage limitations. Acer ProShield provides critical security features within a unified user interface, including an encrypted hidden drive for archiving confidential files, a file shredder for purging sensitive data, and a BIOS import and export tool for streamlining system management.

Acer’s One Button Recovery (OBR) function simplifies back-ups and restores the Veriton’s original factory default settings if the PC’s operating system files are lost or damaged. In addition, the Acer Veriton Control Center streamlines routine IT tasks via:

Acer eSettings Management, an intuitive interface for configuration and control of the system

Acer PowerSaver to configure power levels according to computer usage

Acer SmartBoot to automatically load frequently used programs in the system tray at start up

Pricing and Availability

The new Acer Veriton N4630G mini desktops are available with a USB keyboard and mouse through value-added resellers and channel partners in the U.S. with a three-year limited parts and labor warranty. Estimated selling prices begin at $549.

These systems are backed by professional, high-quality technical support and a three-year warranty.(3) Acer’s online community at community.acer.com provides customers discussion forums, answers to frequently asked questions and the opportunity to share ideas for new and enhanced services and products.
