Acer Revo R3610 comes with Windows 7

By | November 17th, 2009



Acer released their first Aspire Revo back in April 2009. Since then we’ve seen a number of nettops in the market that have the capability to replace desktop. Aspire Revo R3610 is one such model, it combines a good price-to-spec ratio to deliver a cheaper solution for those who want a low power and small size desktop replacement. R3610 comes with Windows 7 Home Premium which adds to its beauty.

With the trend of smartphones and netbook, nettop are not lacking behind. Acer wanted to make sure that it gets a good market as Windows 7 gets released. Intel Atom 330 is a dual core processor with 1MB cache, 1.6 GHz clock speed and a 533 MHz FSB and will give 40% increase in performance as compared to Intel Atom N230. The nettop is perfectly capable of running Windows 7. If you’re looking to buy windows 7, I think you should go for this product too. The specs are pretty much same that the old model had, only that this model comes with Windows 7.

  • Intel® Atom™ Processor 330 (1M Cache, 1.60 GHz, 533 MHz FSB)
  • Windows 7 Home Premium
  • 2 to 4 GB DDR2–800 (dual channel)
  • 160GB SATA HDD
  • 4 in 1 Flash card reader
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • Six USB 2.0 Ports
  • HDMI, eSata and VGA.
  • WiFi 802.11b/g/n
  • Price: Under $350

Here’s one good deal.

    It does not have WiFi N. The WiFi chip is only able to do B and G.

  • glcohen

    Its worth pointing out that the new FlashPlayer 10.1 beta works with the NVIDEA Ion chip and now gives proper Flash acceleration.

  • chjawadm

    That was true for the previous revo. This one, R3610, gets N as well. (WiFi b/g/n)

  • glcohen

    Not true – unless there is already an updated version of the R3610.
    Mine is marked AR5BXB63.
    I have one and it uses a WiFi chip that from the manufacturers data only
    does B and G.
    The label on the side of the R3610 says that it has an Atheros WLAN module
    AR5BXB63.
    Device manager says that there is a Atheros AR5007EG doing the WiFi – and no
    option is given to select anything other than B and G. The Atheros web site
    confirms that this is a B G chip.

  • chjawadm

    Yes, you must have a different model. The N WiFi is available in Aspire Revo R3610-U9012.

  • glcohen

    That is possible. What LAN module and WiFi chip is used in the U9012
    variant? Incidentally the type number of my machine is 92.NVEYZ.UNN (this
    is a UK 2GB machine).

  • aliaero

    Gosh!!! This thing looks very similar to mac mini. PC is getting a hard time against MAC but windows 7 has certainly proved to be a remedy.

  • smithy1776

    I've been let down by this issue too. the website I bought it from clearly states it's b/g/n and was a big determinant for be as I want to stream HD. the model I've got is 92.NVFYZ.U2N. It's a UK model bought from Play.com. I really don't want to send it back as overall it's an excellent piece of kit. Can you just swap out the chipset?

  • chjawadm

    In your case you should contact the play.com Tell them what you actually wanted and what you got. They'll surely help you as they have a good reputation.

  • Dman91

    I am thinking of getting one of these, but i want to be sure that it is actually good enough to use in place of a desktop PC. If anyone has experience with them and can tell me whether it is worth buying please do as I want to purchase it soon.

  • chjawadm

    Depends on your need. If you're not a computer professional and belog to some business or medical field you should buy it. It will make your life easy. Keep in mind that processor is not strong enough to do heavy tasks.

  • Dman91

    what do u mean by heavy tasks? because i like to run a lot of programs at the same time and have them running at high speed.

  • chjawadm

    This system has Intel Atom processor which won't give much performance like you need. Still if you want a small size PC like that, I'll suggest Zino HD

  • John

    I have the same problem…. I can not connect to the internet. The PC can not connect to my router. The router is ok cause i have my laptop connected with it. I have a Aspire R3610 with an Atheros WLAN module AR5BXB63. Can anyone help me?

  • Jay Johnson

    I currently have a 3610 model I bought from newegg.com and it's worth the money. To get better performance out of it, you'll need to bump the RAM up from 2GB to 4GB, along with downloading the updates available from Adobe (as mentioned below). Keep in mind that this thing is still a netbook at heart so there are “some” quirks such as delayed performance coming out of hybernation to include when leaving videos paused on “hulu” (re-buffering takes a minute). Otherwise, this little thing whoops azz!

  • Wpurcell

    Will this unit allow booting from a USB port to install a GNU/Linux operating system?
