Acer's all-in-one has Intel's latest chips and depth camera

Laptops are the biggest winners with Intel's less power-hungry Skylake chips, but desktop computers do get some perks. Acer has just launched the U5-710, a new all-in-one (AIO), that uses the new CPUs along with Intel RealSense cameras. The high-end Aspire U (U5-710) model gets the latest Core i5 or i7 sixth-generation desktop chips, most of which have four cores and a modest performance bump over the earlier Haswell models. They do use slightly less juice, however, and support up to 16GB of faster (and pricier) DDR4 RAM.

The Intel RealSense camera, meanwhile, will let you scan 3D objects or log in to Windows 10 using facial recognition, rather than typing a sketchy password. Other features include a 23.8-inch 1080p IPS monitor with 10-point touch, USB 3.0 and up to 256GB of SSD storage (2TB with regular hard drives). You can also get discrete NVIDIA 940M graphics or stick with Intel Iris 530, but either is a big improvement over the last-gen models. It's arriving in Europe for €999 (no word yet of US availability), which might be a hard sell unless you really need to update your existing desktop.
