Acer announced today the Veriton N2620G Series of nettops for the
professional market in Canada. This series features two new models
providing multi-level security and smart manageability in a flexible
form factor.  
Small, affordable and with a tool-less chassis, the new nettops are
ideal for organizations looking to conserve space, cost and energy.
The new models are about a liter in size and include the Veriton
N2620G-FD30F with Free DOS(TM) and the Veriton N2620G-EC30X outfitted
with Windows(TM) 7/8.  
These nettops are adequate for most workplace tasks at a lower cost
than a fully equipped PC. In addition, the energy efficiency is
similar to thin clients, making them a good fit for those who want to
keep their traditional desktops and knowledge workers who don't
require the power of a standard PC.  
"Our Veriton N Series nettops have been well-received by a wide range
of customers from IT professionals to small business owners for their
low total cost of ownership," said Michael O'Beirne, Acer senior
director, commercial product marketing. "The Veriton N2620G Series
provides solid performance, security and manageability in a flexible
design. Whether they're used in classrooms, libraries or call
centers, these nettops offer organizations a practical form factor
that is very easy to set up and maintain."  
Smart Security and System Management 
The new nettops are outfitted with Acer Proshield Security that
offers key security and management features within a single user
interface. It includes an encrypted hidden drive for confidential
files, a file shredder to purge sensitive materials from the system,
and a BIOS import and export tool to streamline system management.  
The Veriton N2620G Series also comes with Acer's One-Button Recovery
(OBR) function to simplify backing up and/or restoring a PC's data
and the Veriton ControlCenter that streamlines routine IT tasks and
features:  


 
--  Acer eLock Management password protection to lock removable data
    devices and other interfaces to ensure that data can't be stolen
--  Acer eSettings Management, an intuitive interface for configuration
    and control of the system
--  Acer PowerSaver for configuring power levels according to computer
    usage
--  Acer SmartBoot for automatically loading frequently used programs in
    the system tray at start up

  
Slick Design 
The slick design offers neat cable management, quiet operation and a
screw-less chassis to simplify upgrades and maintenance. The nettops
can be mounted on a desk via the retractable stand or attached to the
back of a display with a VESA mounting system. The VESA mount
provides vertical adjustment, so users can access the power button
and memory card reader from the top of the display.  
The Veriton N2620G Series offers plenty of power for efficient
multitasking, word processing, spreadsheets, email and web searches
with an Intel(R) Celeron(TM) processor 887 (1.5GHz), 4GB DDR3 SDRAM
(upgradeable to 8GB) and integrated graphics. Outfitted with a
320GB(1) hard drive, the nettops have ample storage for archiving
digital files. They also come with Intel(R) HD Graphics to enrich
multimedia and a built-in SuperMulti optical drive is available as an
option.  
The nettops are expandable with two mini PCI Express(R) 1.1 x1 slots
and offer excellent connectivity with four USB 2.0 ports, two USB 3.0
ports, HDMI, DVI-I and high-definition headphone and microphone
jacks. A wireless keyboard and mouse, Gigabit Ethernet and embedded
802.11 b/g/n WiFi are also included.
