So, I got my Acer Revo the other day and decided to show a few un-boxing pics. I figured this would tide you over until I finish the testing I’m doing for a full on user review. I was in a rush to plug the darn thing in, so my photography skills were lacking that day. But, here goes….
Top, Front and Bottom Pictures:
Above is the Top with one USB and the exhaust vent.
Above you can see front of the Revo showing the SPDIF plug is below the Windows sticker with white tape over it. There is a separate plastic plug to put in it’s place. The LED light is lit all the time. Also, is the multi card reader, mic, head phones out and Esata plug.
Above is the bottom of the Revo where the stand clips into place. There is no sticker over the access screw warning of warranty voiding if removed. Ram can be installed without warranty issues.
Above is the back of the Revo: 4-USB, 1-Ethernet, 1-HDMI, 1-VGA, and the power plug. Oh, and you cannot use a VGA to S-VHS or VGA to Component conversion cable on the VGA plug if you have a TV without an HDMI plug. I tried it and it does not work.
Model Number and mouse:
Above is the Mouse with USB dongle in the battery area.
Above is the complete package along with cheesy USB speakers and dead AAA batteries. Keyboard is small, maybe 2/3 size, and works very well! Mouse is simple and fits the hand well. You’ll also notice that the vesa mount that was shown in a lot of blogs is no where to be seen. Nope, it ain’t in there folks.
Screen shots of CRT Screen and Desktop:
Above is the shot after I’ve entered all the Windows registration info upon first boot. Takes about 2 minutes to configure before the desktop shows up.
Above is what the desktop looks like at first boot after setup. Oooh, pretty.
Well, as you can see, it’s pretty straight forward. Took me about 15 minutes to unbox, plug in everything and register Windows 7.
I’ve been busy all weekend configuring the Revo with Windows, Flash, Nvidia updates. Also, installed and set up Boxee. And finally, connected and configured the little Revo to work with my HDTV. Here’s a hint… It Rocks!!!!
Stay tuned for all the juicy details on the Flash 10.1 update, HDTV, Hulu and other performance goodness….
