According to Acer, the nettops are adequate for most workplace tasks at a lower cost than a fully equipped PC, and are a good fit knowledge workers who don’t require the power of a standard PC.

“Our Veriton N Series nettops have been well-received by a wide range of customers from IT professionals to small business owners for their low total cost of ownership,” said Michael O’Beirne, Acer senior director, commercial product marketing, in a statement. “The Veriton N2620G Series provides solid performance, security and manageability in a flexible design. Whether they’re used in classrooms, libraries or call centers, these nettops offer organizations a practical form factor that is very easy to set up and maintain.”

 

The nettops are equiped with an Intel Celeron™ processor 887 (1.5GHz), 4GB DDR3 SDRAM (upgradeable to 8GB) and integrated graphics, as well as an 320GB hard drive. They also come with Intel HD Graphics, and a built-in SuperMulti optical drive is available as an option.

They are expandable with two mini PCI Express 1.1 x1 slots as well as four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports, HDMI, DVI-I and high-definition headphone and microphone jacks. A wireless keyboard and mouse, Gigabit Ethernet and embedded 802.11 b/g/n WiFi are also included.
