SAN JOSE, CA–(Marketwired – October 01, 2013) -Acer America today announced that its Acer Aspire ZC-605 Series combining a 19.5-inch LED display and popular features in the convenience of an all-in-one PC is available for consumers in the United States for just $599. The understated look and feel provides a neat, uncluttered appearance, while smart ergonomics ensure comfortable and easy viewing.
“The new Acer Aspire ZC-605 is an excellent choice for those wanting to try an all-in-one for the first time,” said Frank Chang, director of desktop product management for Acer America. “Its sleek and compact size, low price and solid configuration make it ideal for those desiring a basic PC for researching recipes, online shopping and enjoying social media.”
Comfortable ergonomics enhance the computing experience. The chassis tilts from 10 to 30 degrees, so users can find the best angle for watching a film or working on a spreadsheet.

For high-quality teleconferences, the 1600 x 900 resolution display delivers vivid images and a built-in single array microphone emits clear audio.
For quick and easy access, frequently used controls are located on the front of the chassis. These include the on-screen display (OSD) button, SD card reader, USB 3.0 and a 2-in-1 combo audio jack. To enhance the clean design, save space and reduce clutter, the stand has hooks to keep cables neat and the desk tidy, while Bluetooth 4.0 and 802.11a/b/g/n eliminate messy wires. There is also space underneath the chassis for keyboard storage and a convenient handle on the back of the chassis for carrying the compact PC from room to room.
The Acer ZC-605 Series offers plenty of power for fueling productivity applications, casual gaming and social media with Windows 8, an Intel® Pentium® Dual Core 2127U processor, Intel® HD Graphics and 4GB DDR3 dual-channel memory. A large 1TB(1) hard drive provides plenty of storage for housing applications, files and multimedia.
