Acer Veriton Business Desktop PCs

New Design Improves Serviceability and Usability

Acer America, the third largest vendor in the PC market1, introduced numerous new design features to its popular Veriton line of business desktops. With an intuitive layout and leading technologies, the new ID brings greater peace of mind to business customers through features that improve productivity, reliability and serviceability.

The new productivity-enhancing design features can be found on three new desktops, including the Veriton M265, Veriton M421G and Veriton M670G.

“The new Acer Veriton desktop PCs were designed from the ground up to provide business customers with compelling features that make a big difference in value and productivity in the real world,” said Leila Axelle Robert, Acer Desktop Business Manager. “From a more efficient design that improves serviceability to the easily accessible ports and our One Button Recovery capability, the new Veriton desktops combine great technology and user-friendly features for a tremendous value.”

To keep the PC cool and running efficiently, the new design includes open air vents on the front of the system that greatly improve ventilation. Wide metallic-gray slats cover an intricate mesh panel, which also strengthen and reinforce the structural integrity of the PC. Side skirts with slanted surfaces further augment the sturdiness of the machine.

Making ease-of-serviceability a top priority, Acer has added a hinged/cable-less front bezel, making it easy to open the entire chassis for upgrades.

In addition, a new modular design layout allows the hard drive, optical drive and floppy drive to each be accessed directly and individually, making it easier than ever to upgrade and service these components, without removing additional parts.

A newer, cleaner cable management system was also implemented in the new Veriton desktops, providing a tidy interior that’s easier to work around when accessing the interior layout for upgrades and service. The PCI cards, power supply, hard drives and other hardware and corresponding cables are well organized into dedicated locations for tool-less retrieval.

Taking into consideration office space and design constraints, some Veriton models can be oriented both vertically and horizontally, while other models are designed specifically for either orientation. This provides maximum flexibility for a wide range of business environments.

Commonly used I/O ports are smartly positioned on the front and top of the PC, making them easily accessible. These “smart ports” eliminate the need to fumble around behind the PC looking for the right connection when inserting and removing a flash drive, portable external drive or camera.

Acer’s One-Button Recovery (OBR) function removes the hassle associated with backing up and/or restoring a PC’s data. The OBR is easily accessible on the front of the system, so safeguarding and protecting critical assets is easier than ever. If the PC’s operating system files are lost or damaged, the recovery process can restore the Veriton’s original factory default settings or to the last system backup.
