Smart TVs are everywhere, but none is smarter than a PC. Hooking up a media-friendly computer such as the Revo RL100 to your big screen opens up loads of new entertainment possibilities.
Acer Aspire Revo RL100: stealthy
If you can find the right button on the case's inky black surfades, out pops a keyboard that doubles as a multi-touch tablet controller. A few copper accents are all that's going to distinguish the RL100's PS2-esque form from your AV stack.
Acer Aspire Revo RL100: Freeview
A standard-def Freeview TV tuner, an AMD Neo II K325 dual-core CPU and a generous 500GB drive to fill with recordings mean you'll have plenty to watch. The Acer's Nvidia ION graphics hardware has no trouble with hi-def content.
Acer Aspire Revo RL100: skills
With a tweaked version of Windows 7 pre-installed, you can start straight out of the box. Its illuminated keyboard-tablet is neat but uncomfortable to use for long periods. Still, this is the coolest way to add PC skills to your TV.
