The TA272HUL Android All-in-One computer from Acer

Acer is cementing its support for Google's operating environment with the release of two new All-in-One (AIO) desktop computers. Rather than extend its line of devices built around Chrome though, and go toe-to-toe with LG's Chromebase perhaps, the new arrivals both bring the mobile OS experience to the desktop with Android Jelly Bean running the show. The TA272HUL features a high resolution WQHD touchscreen display for crisp onscreen action, while the DA223 HQL packs its own battery for portability.  Read More
