Acer Blurs Digital Signage Tablets and Displays Further With New Win 8 All-In-One

We told you recently about Acer releasing a 27-inch all-in-one display with an ARM processor that was, in effect, a crazily-big Android tablet. And one that could in theory serve some digital signage needs, and be a smaller, more open variant of a Samsung Smart Sign.

Now via Engadget we see that Acer has released a 21.5-inch all-in-one that is effectively an unwieldy Windows 8 tablet, and looks more like a tablet than the 27 inch beast.

The Aspire Z3-600 has Intel’s Pentium J2580 quad-core processor (Intel still markets Pentium???) and a 750GB hard drive. The intriguing thing is that the MSRP is $779, which is not a whole pile more than consumer tablets. There are case where this would do very nicely for things like meeting room screens¬†and office campus directories.

Bear in mind that these are consumer devices, not commercial units. So how well they’d stand up is a big unknown. But there are a LOT of consumer tablets being deployed every day for heavy uses like POS, so the issue might not be all that big.
