Today, Acer rolled out the next iteration of their charmingly elegant all-in-one lineup, the Acer Aspire AZ5761. The new AZ5761 brings together Sandy Bridge-based Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs, discrete graphics, optional Blu-ray and more. Models with up to 1.5 TB of hard drive space can be purchased, as well as a number of TV tuner options.

The TouchPortal comes with TouchBrowser for surfing the web, TouchCam, for recording videos with the webcam, TouchMusic, a touch-enabled media player, TouchPhoto, which offers some rudimentary photo management capabilities, and TouchVideo, which controls the DVD and Blu-ray playback functionality.

Acer’s new all-in-one also comes configured with their networking and media sharing technology. It claims to take all devices on the same networking and make sharing media files between them easier.

Acer decided to launch the Aspire AZ5761 all-in-one in the UK first, with a pricetag of roughly $1300 US. There are no official dates for bringing it across the pond as of yet.
