Acer has announced availability and pricing information for its Aspire 5600U and 7600U all-in-ones, first seen at Computex 2012. Pricing for the 23-inch 5600U model will start from $999.99 and begin shipping on October 26th, with the machine supporting up to an Intel Core i5 3110M. Integrated Intel HD graphics come as standard, as does 8GB of DDR3 RAM and 1TB of hard drive space. The 27-inch 7600U version, meanwhile, won't be made available until "late November," priced from $1,899.99. The larger model can support up to a Core i5 3210M, with graphics duties handled by Nvidia’s GT640M with 2GB of RAM. Just like its smaller sibling, the 27-inch model ships with a 1TB hard drive and 8GB of RAM.

Demonstrated at Computex, the stands on the machines allow them to be adjusted at different angles. Users can prop the all-in-ones to 90 degrees or lay them flat on a surface, all while maintaining the ability to swivel. And the displays? Both models support multitouch gestures for use in Windows 8, but the 27-inch version has been saddled with the same 1080p resolution as the 23-inch model. If you wanted the same touch capable screens but without the computers inside, Acer will be releasing them as the T232HL and T272HL for $499.99 and $699.99 respectively.
