The Acer Aspire M5630 series is based around Core 2 architecture with its quad-core Q6600 processor, 2GB DDR2 memory, 500GB SATA HDD, ATI X2400 Pro PCI-E graphics (though no mention of HDMI which is a dissapointment) and an Acer 22" WS LCD.

 

Acer have planned to retail the system for $2299 AUD. For more information check out the official PR here folks.
