Acer’s Web Surf Station looks like a monitor, acts like an all-in-one

23 Apr

We’d say we’re pretty well-covered when it comes to tech gadgets that turn on instantly to let you surf the web, scan your Facebook feed, and browse photos.

But if you crave that immediacy and a larger, more comfortable viewing space, Acer’s DX241H Web Station might be the product you’re looking for. Available in wired and wireless models, this 24-inch monitor has a built-in browser, and can get online without being connected to a PC. While web surfing is clearly the marquee feature, you can also watch movies on its 1080p display by using Acer’s clear.fi software to stream video and other media from other tech gadgets on the network.

Spec-wise, it also boasts DLNA compatibility, VGA and HDMI output, USB ports, and a memory card slot. People in the UK too impatient to wait for an all-in-one to boot up can snag the Web Station for £299 ($495) in May.
