The Acer DA241HL is an all-in-one PC that runs Android
I'm Luke Westaway for CNET right here at the IFA tech trade show in Berlin, taking a look at this is the Acer DA241HL.
Now, design-wise, this looks like an ordinary all-in-one.
You've got a wireless keyboard and a mouse, and it's got a little stand thing, basically all the computings on the inside, but this has a trick up its sleeve because it's running Android not Windows.
To control it,
you'll be using this 24-inch touch panel.
You can see it looks just like a normal tablet or phone when I swipe around on it here, so you get the familiar Android app tray and home screens, which you can customize yourself.
One nice feature is that you can tilt this display all the way down if you want to, and Acer is boasting about the viewing angle, which means you should be able to crowd quite a few people around the screen before you start to see things like color warping.
It's running Android version 4.2, and that's good because it gives you
access to the Google Play app store, which has thousands of apps and games.
On the other hand, if you want a normal desktop to do things like run Microsoft Office or ordinary tasks, this probably isn't what you're looking for because you'll find that lots of established software won't work on Android.
So, I'm not convinced this is a truly brilliant idea, but it is an interesting concept and it will be interesting to see how good it actually proves to be.
