BERLIN -- The Acer DA241HL might look like a regular desktop all-in-one, but it runs entirely on Android, rather than Windows. It's due to go on sale in October for €429.

The computer has a 24-inch display, which is loads of room to show off Angry Birds.

It's of course a touch-enabled display, allowing my delightful colleague Luke Westaway to fling those birds like never before.

It's running Android 4.2.1 Jelly Bean, which looks very close to the stock version -- Acer hasn't put many of its own touches over the top, thankfully.

There's a wireless keyboard and mouse included, too, in case you don't fancy poking at the onscreen keyboard.

It's quite slender, so you won't need to make much room on your desk to fit it in.

All the ports are housed around the back to stop it looking too cluttered if you want it in your living room.

It's supported by quite a flimsy-looking stand. Whether this can put up with abuse from over-excited children remains to be seen.

It won't lie completely flat but it'll fold down quite a bit if you want to crowd a few people around.

It's running on an Nvidia Tegra 3 mobile processor. Sadly, that's not the latest Tegra 4 chip.

There's a speaker bar running along the bottom underneath the screen.
