Slimmed down gadgets are no new venture in the world of technology. Thin devices — ranging from smartphones, tablets, and laptops — continue to be a popular option amongst consumers. Most recently, the Acer Aspire S24 desktop computer caters to such preferences, as the PC boasts of quite the slim screen. Here’s what you need to know about this all-in-one computer.
Acer Aspire S24 Specs
With a screen that measures at 0.235 inches in width, the Aspire S24 is incredibly thin in its design. This not only makes it sleek, it makes it a notable entry in a sea of chunkier desktop computers in the market. Thanks to its 0.106-inch bezel, the Aspire S24 features a screen-to-body ratio of 90%. In order to achieve its notably thin width, the Aspire S24’s actual computer hardware is located in its base. This also allows the monitor to stand up on its own.
Another notable detail about the monitor lies in its base yet again. Interestingly, the Aspire S24 also features a Qi wireless charging pad, which is located in the computer’s foundation. This ultimately gives the PC an edge, as it allows for wireless charging of your smartphone whenever necessary.
Powering the computer is a Kaby Lake Intel Core i5 processor. Other features include 12GB of DDR4 2400MHz memory, 1TB of storage, and HDMI support. It also includes a USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-C port, three USB 3.1 Gen1 Type-A ports, and a USB 2.0 port. Additionally, the computer comes with an SD card reader, which should come as a useful addition to photographers on the market for a new PC.
In terms of audio, the computer comes with dual 2W 2.1 speakers with Acer TrueHarmony and Dolby Audio Premium. To complete the hardware package, the Aspire S24 also comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse.
“We think customers in the United States will be delighted with the elegant aesthetics and convenient feature set of our newest all-in-one desktop,” shares Frank Chang, senior director for stationary products at Acer. “The ultra-slim form factor and wireless charging free up desk space, while ample power delivers smooth performance.”

At $879.99, the Aspire S24’s price tag comes off as a rather competitive price point in the market. Though it may not have more top-of-the-line specs, the computer is jam-packed with several features that truly make it a formidable contender in the market of all-in-one PCs.
