Acer has a new all-in-one on the block, and it's a slim one at that. The company today took the wraps off of the new Aspire S24, calling it its "slimmest ever all-in-one desktop" because of its 0.235-inch profile. That slim design is paired with a set of decent specs and other bells and whistles that make it an interesting package.
On the inside, the Aspire S24 packs an Intel Core i5-8250U processor, 12GB of RAM, and 1TB of storage. The Aspire S24 relies on Intel's integrated graphics, so don't expect to reach insane levels of performance in any demanding games. As for the display, the 23.8-inch IPS panel sports a 1080p resolution, but without touch support.
Besides its slim design, the Aspire S24's coolest feature is integrated Qi wireless charging. Built into the system's base, Qi charging will let you lay your phone down and start charging without any wire clutter.
Acer says that the Aspire S24 is set to launch in the U.S. this month starting at $879. However, it already looks to be available at Acer's website for $899.99.
