Acer came up with a computer for those who are “not friendly” with a screwdriver – it can be “upgraded” with the stackable rectangular blocks. In October, Acer plans to offer a modular mini PC in Europe for $ 199. The basis of Revo Build – a block from the connector at the top, like a compact computer Intel NUC.
