MISSISSAUGA, ON -- (Marketwire) -- 07/24/12 --
Acer, the number two PC provider in Canada,(2) today announced new commercial desktop PCs designed specifically for businesses, schools and government agencies. The blend of fast processing with a tool-less design and essential security and management tools make the new Veriton Series desktops ideal for powering mainstream productivity applications in professional environments.
The Acer Veriton L4620G is an ultra small form factor (ULSF) desktop with prices starting at $579. This system comes with the Acer ErgoStand that is easy to set up and connect to a range of Acer monitors to create a streamlined all-in-one system. Other new models include the Acer Veriton X4620G, a small form factor (SFF) desktop and the Acer Veriton M4620G, a mini tower, both with prices beginning at $549. All models come with a three-year warranty(1) and support up to a third-generation Intel® Core i7 processor, which provides significant application and graphics performance benefits compared to prior generations.
"The new Veriton desktops are an excellent fit for businesses and institutions with their efficient design, time-saving management tools and robust security," said Michael O'Beirne, Acer senior director, commercial product marketing. "The systems are designed to streamline maintenance and upgrades. The modular, tool-less chassis simplifies component swapping and supports up to three displays, so employees can view three monitors at once, which boosts productivity."
Efficient Management, Robust Security
Tightly managing and safeguarding data is more critical than ever. TPM 1.2 compliant, the systems conform to corporate-level security requirements and lower total cost of ownership over the product lifecycle. Boasting the Acer Veriton ControlCenter suite of management tools, the models feature:
In addition, the new commercial desktops are outfitted with Acer Proshield Security, a single-client console application that integrates key security and management features under a unified user interface. It includes an encrypted hidden drive for confidential files, a file shredder to wipe sensitive content from the system, and a BIOS import and export tool that simplifies system management.
Acer's One-Button Recovery (OBR) function makes backing up and/or restoring a PC's data simple. 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.
Excellent Connectivity and Expansion
Enabling employees to multi-task by viewing three projects at once, all three Veriton 4620G Series desktop platforms -- M, X and L models -- provide two DisplayPorts and a DVI port. Each DisplayPort provides true digital images to the monitor and crystal clear audio via one small cable, which saves space and provides a clean look and feel.
The Acer Veriton L4620G uSFF PC models come with an internal drive bay supporting a half-slim 2.5- to 3.5-inch drive, a mini PCI-Express 2.0 slot, six USB 2.0 ports and four USB 3.0 ports. The Acer Veriton X4620G SFF offers external 5.25-inch and internal 3.5-inch drive bays as well as PCI Express 2.0 x16 and PCI Express x1 slots.
The Acer Veriton M4620G mini towers provide two 5.25-inch and six 3.5-inch drive bays (two external, four internal), open PCI Express 2.0 x16, PCI Express 2.0 x1 and PCI v2.3 slots in addition to a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot wired as x4 connectivity. They also come with six USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0 ports and a convenient two-port USB 3.0 module that can be inserted in the upper front media bay for charging smartphones and cameras.
Robust Components for Reliable Performance
The Acer Veriton 4620G Series models feature a high-quality 100 percent solid capacitor mainboard design to prolong system life. They also offer optional inside and outside built-in dust filters.
The systems have 4GB DDR3 SDRAM upgradeable to 16GB via two memory slots for fast performance up to 1600Mhz. Providing all the essentials necessary for general productivity, these desktops offer large 500GB(3) SATA hard drives and SuperMulti optical drives for loading software and backing up valuable data. In addition, embedded high-definition audio creates high-quality sound for videoconferencing and webcasts.
