Acer Announces New Desktop PCs Supporting Intel vPro Technology; Cutting-Edge Technology Redefines Cost-Efficient Productivity for SMBs and Large Business Users

Acer, one of the leading worldwide suppliers of IT solutions, today announced a significant business productivity and efficiency enhancement for SMBs and large businesses, with the introduction of its new Professional Desktop PC range. The ground-breaking range of desktop PCs supporting Intel(R) vPro technology, represent an effective application of Acer's awareness of evolving business requirements and its broad technological expertise to provide a desktop solution that does away with redundant components and peripherals.

Meticulous observation of desktop PC use in large businesses has shown that in several key areas, many standard components of modern PCs are utilized unproductively or, at worst, hardly used at all. As a result, companies waste both time and resources on specifications which -- while offering complete PC solutions -- are economically inefficient by offering far more than businesses actually need.

Acer's Veriton Professional Desktop PCs were designed to provide maximum productivity with minimum excess. Paired with suitable LCD monitors such as Acer's Office Line displays, the Veriton Professional Desktop PC provides the optimized environmental impact allowing businesses more room to expand. By utilizing the new range of Acer desktop PCs, businesses will be able to drive down initial capital investment and bring superior efficiency, enhanced manageability and even greater value to today's business environment.

In response to the growing demand for greater manageability and increased flexibility in office environments, Acer's range of Professional Desktop PCs feature tailor-made manageability applications pre-installed including eManager, eLock and eSecurity from Acer's innovative Empowering Technology software suite.

The real-world environment of today's SMBs and large businesses places increasing demands on IT departments to centralize data flows and guarantee superior levels of security and protection for vital information. Featuring integrated Wake-on-LAN ready Ethernet cards, the Veriton Professional Desktop PCs are ideal for centralized office network integration.

"Acer's meticulous attention to the continuously-evolving market trends has allowed us to anticipate the demands of businesses and provide comprehensive technological solutions that fully satisfy the real needs of enterprises across the sector," said Maarten De Haas, Acer America's vice president, marketing and product management . "The introduction of Veriton Professional Desktop PC's based on Intel(R) vPro technology is one of the most cost-effective evolutions of currently available technology, and underlines once again Acer's unrivalled commitment to embracing the latest technological innovations to offer complete solutions that drive business value."
