Posted by at 11:55 am on August 18, 2009

Acer has announced the new Veriton N260G-U2802CP, an ultra-compact nettop for the U.S. professional market.   Housed in a sleek one-liter chassis, the Veriton N260G maximizes space whether it’s placed upright with its retractable stand or attached to the back of a display. Due to its small size and flexible design, this practical nettop is well-suited for small offices, reception areas, classrooms, libraries, showrooms, call centers, hotel front desks or airline check-in kiosks.

“Combining a sleek form factor with power saving technology, the Veriton N260G is a convenient, low-maintenance device for accomplishing basic computing tasks in areas where there is little desk space,” said Leila Axelle Robert, Acer Commercial Systems Business Manager. “Whether the Veriton N260G is leveraged for classrooms, libraries or administrative purposes, this nettop delivers a streamlined solution for a small investment with a low total cost of ownership.”

The Veriton N260G-U2802CP combines a low power consumption Intel Atom processor with an Intel GN40 Express Chipset, a practical platform for basic productivity and Internet-based applications. With up to 2GB of memory, a 160GB(2) hard drive and Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M, the Veriton N260G has ample storage and can playback high-definition videos and display sharp images in vivid color.

A VESA mounting system enables the nettop to easily adhere to the rear of various displays. This space-saving all-in-one capability makes it easy to fit in almost any work area. The VESA mount offers vertical adjustment to ensure that the power button and memory card reader are perfectly accessible from the top of the LCD display.

A screw-less chassis eases upgrades and maintenance, while a smart design ensures neat cable management and quiet operation. In addition, the OneButton Recovery re-set pinhole restores systems to retrieve documents in case of a power failure or other issue.

The nettop comes with an array of ports for connecting to a wide array of peripherals and digital devices. These include HDMI to deliver crisp, high quality images, a multi-in-1 card reader, six USB 2.0 ports, high-definition headphone and microphone jacks and a PS/2 slot. WiFi 802.11 b/g/Draft N and Gigabit Ethernet are also provided to deliver users an efficient, secure and stable LAN connection.
