Space-saving Computers Updated With Dual Core Intel Processors and Faster Graphics
Acer America today expanded its line of Veriton nettops for the U.S. professional market with the Veriton N282G, a powerful new model for viewing HD content and the Veriton N281G, an update to Acer's first commercial nettop that's engineered for tackling office productivity tasks.
Small, flexible and highly practical, the new Veriton N281G and Veriton N282G ultra-compact nettops conserve energy, work space and due to a screw-less chassis, total cost of ownership. The new nettops come with Windows® 7 Professional and will be available via Acer's authorized resellers in October with prices beginning at just $399.

With the ION GPU, users can enjoy full HD video on sites like YouTube HD or from Blu-Ray discs. It also boosts performance of editing and converting videos and photos. Outfitted with a large 320GB hard drive, the Veriton N282G has plenty of storage for archiving large digital files.

Intelligent Design: Flexible Mounting, Cable Management and Energy Efficiency
To maximize space, both nettops boast a unique design that can be mounted on a stand or attached to the back of various displays with a VESA mounting system. The VESA mount offers vertical adjustment, so users can access the power button and memory card reader from the top of the display.
The innovative design also features neat cable management, quiet operation and a screw-less chassis to ease upgrades and maintenance. A OneButton Recovery reset pinhole is incorporated for restoring systems and retrieving documents in case of a power failure. For security, the nettops include padlock and Kensington lock slots.
The nettops provide a mini PCI Express 1.1 x1 slot for expansion, six USB 2.0 ports, HDMI, high-definition headphone and microphone jacks as well as VGA and serial ports. A wireless keyboard and mouse, Gigabit Ethernet and embedded 802.11 b/g/n WiFi are also included.
