Its appearance design excels
Frankly speaking, most PCs in the industry currently do not fully consider "elegant" aesthetics in their design. The good news is that Acer's Aspire S24 is not too bad in design and has won many design awards. Acer said that the 23.8-inch screen panel has a 0.106 inch bezel size and the screen ratio is as high as 90%.
The thickness of the screen is only 0.235 inches, although this size has been difficult to integrate webcam, but Acer has found a solution. The screen arm can be adjusted between -5 and 25 degrees, but it does not support lifting or rotation.
The next drawback is the bundled peripherals. Acer provides a wireless keyboard and mouse in the package, but it feels cheaper and too plastic, and the one machine itself does not match.
Its base is a surprise
Acer promised that the user equipment base will not occupy too much desktop space. The S24's base size is 13.5*7.5 inches, which is smaller than most notebooks. However, it is surprising that users can wirelessly charge the phone by placing it on it.
Acer uses the Qi wireless charging standard, which means eitheriPhoneX or Galaxy S9 can be charged. There is a Qi LOGO on the base. The green indicator will light up when the user puts the phone on charge.
Performance is not tough
Obviously, the market positioning of the Aspire S24 is not aimed atiMacPro, so there is not too strong performance. Users can get Intel's eighth-generation Core i5-8250U processor, based on Kaby Lake's Intel energy-saving quad-core processor, which is mainly used in ultra-thin notebooks and ultrabooks. Intel's UHD 620 GPU integrated graphics are used in graphics cards. Although they are unable to perform too high in games, they can easily meet daily tasks.
Acer offers a 12GB DDR4 size, 1TB 5200rpm mechanical hard drive instead of a faster SSD. Another disadvantage of the all-in-one is that the highest resolution is 1920*1080 instead of 4K and does not support touch input. In the current trend of Windows devices embracing the touch, this configuration is a bit strange.
Although Acer's Aspire S24 only has ultrabook performance, it offers more ports than traditional laptops. In addition to HDMI input and output ports, Gigabit network ports, Acer also supports 802.11ac WiFi and Bluetooth 4.2.
In addition, the machine also provides three USB 3.1 Type-A ports, two on the left and one on the back. With a full-size SD card reader, located on the side of the device. A USB 2.0 port, 3.5mm headphone port, in addition to a USB 3.1 Type-C port.

Currently Acer only announced the price of a configuration, retail price of 879.99 US dollars.
