Acer preps $400 Haswell-based Android All-in-One PC
Acer is soon releasing a an Intel Haswell Core i5 3GHz based All-in-One PC that runs Google's Android operating system. The system may look similar to the Smart Display DA220HQL pictured below, which uses an ARM chip. If the rumor is right, this will be the first Intel powered All-in-One PC that runs Android.
The lack of a license fee to Microsoft means the unit would cost around $400, and thanks to Android's lower hardware needs, would come with a mere 1GB RAM and 8GB ROM at a minimum. If true -- and that's a huge "if" -- it makes some sense considering Acer's desire to avoid Microsoft's Windows RT OS at all costs, but we're not sure how an Android-based tablet with pricier Intel underpinnings would go down with the public.
