Acer's Booth

 Acer's booth suites both its corporate color scheme and that of the ongoing 'green-IT' movement.

 Trendy new case designs for some of their systems.

- the Predator gaming machines along with their color-matched Acer G24 gaming monitors.

 This is the Acer Altos G540M2 tower server. It features the latest Intel Tylersberg platform to support dual Nehalem-class Intel Xeon 5500 processors - the latest workstation platform. Other features include dual Gigabit LAN, 96GB maximum memory support and dual PSU support, eight 3.5-inch SATA SAS drives and up to 16 2.5-inch SATA SAS drives. All the SATA drives are hot-swappable.

 And this is the Acer Aspire easyStore home server which utilizes the Windows Home Server system. Though it looks really nice, we're not quite sure of its performance as it uses an Intel Atom 230 embedded processor on the Intel 945GC platform.

 It takes in up to four hard drives, though not hot-swappable. In terms of connectivity and expansion, it has a space PCIe x4 interface inside, five USB 2.0 ports, an eSATA port and one LAN port.
