Acer Unveils the Intel Atom-Based Aspire easyStore Windows Home Server


acer aspire easystore hs340 series windows home server

Sorry folks. This product will only be launching in Japan on March 6, 2009. However, you never know when it might be coming stateside. In the meantime, let me tell you a little bit about this gem. According to PC Watch, two versions of the HS340 series Aspire easyStore Windows Home Server will be available; the HS340-S1 will come equipped with 1TB of storage while the HS340-S2 will offer 3TBs. Product highlights include: USB transfer copy, DLNA / UPnP support, Gigabit Ethernet, 1.6Ghz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of memory. Honestly, I just like the design. But the fact that it’s engineered to be energy-efficient is a big plus for an always-on device. MSRP is around $600 and $900 for the 1TB and 3TB models. [via]
