Good for Work

I've bought two of these now (the 4GB and the 8GB model with WiFi) and both were to upgrade some of our current workstations. I liked them because each time I went to look at new systems - these were on sale. These systems do offer the minimum amount of peripherals plug ins, so just make sure you know what you'll be plugging into them before you buy them. The only negative thing I found is there is limited to no option for expanding its memory, or adding on additional peripherals. In short, great system just make sure you know what it'll do for the rest of it's system life.

The bare minimum

With only 4 USB ports and no VGA connector this computer is suitable for streaming to a television but it's definitely not good enough for a general-purpose computer.

Piece of junk

Thinking best buys staff would steer me in the right direction I got stuck with this product after telling them my 1995 PC was too slow to be used anymore and driving me crazy. This turned out to be just as slow if not worse. I can't even run Youtube and another program without it freezing even on a highspeed rogers network. On top of that it doesn't have the standard pci plug in for monitors and only accepts the new HDMI only monitor so check for that first your monitor is this. On top of that,. Yeah a lot of bad. It has like 4 usb slots. Not enough for the norm accessories these days. Buyer beware. I wish I got the name of the clerk gentleman who said this one was good. I always valued best buy but this steered me off of them for PC gear. Shame on you guys :(.

Good value for the $$

Have just had this up and running for a few days, but so far so good. Performance is fine. I'm not quite sure why the other reviewer stated no DVD drive. The super multi-drive seems fine. My only quibble is with the keyboard: it seems pretty rinky dink compared to what I had before (I'm still debating using my old one).

Machine great, the ancillary appls stink

Have no qualm with the performance of the machine, it runs Win 10 smoothly up to expectation (with no gaming). But ran into problem with my Office 2007, some time last week, an add-in killed the appl: anytime I tried to save, Word just crashed. Found out one add-in was Acer's ab Docs Office Add-In. Using CCleaner to uninstall the Add-in. Word is functioning again. This prompted me to uninstall all the ab appls, so far the machine run smoothly. (As the machine has no DVD drive, don’t throw away your machine with a DVD drive, you may need it to copy any appl that comes as a DVD (like the TurboTax) to a jump drive.)

Underpriced computer - performs very well

Don't fall in the trap of buying expensive computers for things you don't need. I really like Acer (and Gateway too), it's the best quality/price ratio you can get. This is a great computer, much better than my 950$ HP. I installed 3 big programs: Dreamweaver, Photoshop and Corel. Everything is all good. The first thing you will notice is how small and quiet it is, yet so powerful. Startup time is incredibly fast. Before buying it, keep in mind that it has only 4 usb (2 in the back, 2 in the front). For your monitors, keep in mind that this computer has only 2 HDMI ports (no VGA or DVI) So be sure that your monitor(s) have HDMI ports or if you buy an adapter. You cannot have more than 2 monitors on it unless you buy a graphic card. And because it's a small computer, you need a small graphic card (2.7 inch width). Don't let Best buy sell you their "optimization service", which basically means installing windows on it. Just turn on your computer, and click on 'Next'. It takes literally 2 minutes. Don't buy a guarantee, you don't need one. You already have the 1 year manufacturer guarantee, that's enough. No need for you to spend an extra 200$ for 3-years guarantee. If you are looking at this PC, it means you don't want to spend too much, so believe me on this you don't want to spend more than you need. This PC goes on sale really often, it's usually at 500$, but regularly goes to $400. It comes with a keyboard and mouse too, which is great although it's cheap and probably worth 20$ for both (max). If you don't plan on installing the latest high-tech games, this is a great PC. I really recommend it, Acer is a great brand that sells only quality, no prestige.

Exceeds expectations

Does all tasks I require from a PC with great speed. Like the small footprint and the price was right.

Does the job

The DVD drive crapped out within 3 weeks of purchase. It would not open and my DVD was stuck inside for good. (Fortunately it was just an install CD for a monitor bought at Best Buy, which they easily replaced). Best Buy customer service exchanged the PC for another new one with no problems. Pros: An economical entry level PC. Fairly fast. Very lightweight. Has extra RAM slot (laptop RAM size) for expansion. Cons: No USB 3.0 ports. The 4 USB ports can fill up very fast. No slots whatsoever to add extra internal HDDs. A lot of unwanted bloatware. Bilingual keyboard. Pro/Con (depending on point of view): No VGA output; but 2 HDMI ports
