      Advantages

      • "Cheap .   Quick for desktop use .   Good extra keyboard functions . "

      Disadvantages

      • "looks funny"

      alright

      I moved into a new office a couple of months ago, and needed something that went "beep" to sit in the middle of my desk. The option of spending lots of money wasn't there, so I looked around for a branded but cheap PC. For about £380 inc VAT I got the Acer. The spec is modest. 1.2GHz Duron, 40GB HD (the ads, invoice and web site all say 20GB, but I have 3 of these now, and they're all 40!) 52X CD-ROM drive, 128MB of RAM

      I think it's a desktop with good graphics and sound

      Needed a new PC for my own use.The option of spending lots of money wasn't there, so I looked around for a branded but cheap PC. I bought this Acer desktop.

      To be honest it does not really matter what the name of the pc make is called but what is inside counts.This pc is perfect for those who it aimed at. (familys) although it is no super computer it is very able at the needs of a average family. with a AMD duron processor it is more than capable of handling tasks like text and media programs and will run most games.BUT it is only a 1 ghz processor which is slightly out dated now, it will do most things you ask of it but if you are a gaming fan dont expect to be blown away.

      • Cheap
      • Lightweight

      Disadvantages

      • "Specs are downgraded"

      Bang for Buck

      moved into a new office a couple of months ago, and needed something that went "beep" to sit in the middle of my desk. The option of spending lots of money wasn't there, so I looked around for a branded but cheap PC. For about £380 inc VAT I got the Acer. The spec is modest. 1.2GHz Duron, 40GB HD (the ads, invoice and web site all say 20GB, but I have 3 of these now, and they're all 40!) 52X CD-ROM drive, 128MB of RAM.

      Plugging it in was a breeze. Acer provide a wall chart thingy with pictures of sockets, cables etc., so you just hold something next to the picture to find out what it is, and plug it in! The mouse is a standard wheel mouse, but the keyboard is a USB one with a very nice touch, and it has a volume control (tap to mute), play/pause, stop, back and forward buttons, WWW and email buttons, plus 5 programmable buttons. Nicely, Acer have provided desktop software that lets you print the button layouts and there is a little see through window above the 5 keys that these printed labels fit into. They also provide blank labels you can write on. As a touch typist I find the Acer keyboard very nice to use. No harsh clicking, and no bouncy feel. Just right for my gently typing.
      The case itself is blue and grey. There is an easily removable flap at the front which covers the floppy and CD drive bays. With the flap up, there's just a light and a switch on the front. I think it looks slightly strange, but the flap cuts down a surprising amount of noise (see below) Going inside the case, there are 3 PCI slots, a separate AGP slot, two DIMM sockets, one with the 128MB in it and two IDE interfaces with proper two-device cables provided. The PCI slot covers are the snap-off type, but what do you expect for £300+VAT? On the rear of the case you have the standard PS/2 mouse and keyboard connectors, two USB ports, integral video card, sound card, game card and network card connectors, and a "hard" power switch, should the software front switch fail to operate in the event of a crash

      Games played on it run well, with exceptions, slightly jerky at hi res. there are no problems with publishing problems and has sufficient power to multi task.
      value for money is not exceptional, power will be soon out dated no use for extreme gamers. The AMD DURON processor is very reliable.

      Advantages

      • "Strong performance"
      • "Nice battery life"

      Disadvantages

      • "Weird keyboard arrangemwnt"
      • "Screen brightness problem"

      Overall a nice experience.

      I liked it on the whole. There are pro and cons of this desktop. It's performance and speed are great but at the same time screen brightness may creat issues. It has a superb long lasting battery life but arrangement of keys on keyboard is weird and takes time to get used to it.
      On the whole it is a nice package.
      The storage space is also quite good. I would surely suggest this desktop. At such a price this level of performance is surprising.

      Advantages

      • "good GPU"
      • "impressive battery"
      • "large memory"
      • "good grahics"
      • "fast processor"

      Disadvantages

      • "cant upgrade to windows 10"
      • "keyboard confusing"

      Brilliant desktop with good graphics and sound

      The Acer 8000 pleasantly surprised me. It's 6.6-pound portable is reasonably easy for non computer experts such as myself and comes with these complement of features: 15-inch screen, robust ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 graphics, fast 4,200-rpm hard drive, Bluetooth, and even a DVD+/-RW burner.

      The desktop comes with the full contingent of ports: four USB 2.0 ports (all placed on the left side), a FireWire port, audio line in, DVI-I (for both digital and analog video out—the only notebook in the group to have this), VGA, and S-Video. Security-conscious organizations will be happy to see the integrated Smart Card Reader, which can limit access to only authorized card holders. Network connectivity is via Gigabit Ethernet, and best of all, Centrino G wireless.


      One of the design features I'm still not sure about is Acer's keyboard, which has the keys arrayed in a slight curve (think smiley face). The company claims it's more ergonomically friendly, but we found it takes a bit getting used to, and the keys are sitting a little closer than we like. Convenient touches we do like are the four-way scroll wheel between the mouse buttons, and four programmable quick-launch buttons above the keyboard.
      The desktop comes with the strongest 3D graphics solution in the group with the ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 128MB DDR SDRAM.

      This makes it a good choice (for a portable) when work ends and games begin. That GPU, along with the Pentium M 745 (1.8 GHz) processor and 4,200-rpm hard drive helped the TravelMate turn in the best Business Winstone score in this group (22.2)—besting even the HP Compaq entry with its Pentium M 755 (2.0 GHz) processor and double the amount of RAM. Acer's battery score was also impressive at 5:12 (hours, minutes), as was its wireless throughput.

      Advantages

      • "pre-installed virus protector"
      • "easy to use"
      • "HD graphics"
      • "stylish display"
      • "quick and fast perfomance"
      • lighweight
      • "Good Battery life"

      Disadvantages

      • "tiny speakers"
      • "Small frame limits battery life"

      Better than the MacBook and at a fraction of the price

      The Acer Aspire 8000 isn't just an astonishingly thin and light laptop, it's a revolution in design. Fitting a 13.3-inch screen into a 11-inch laptop frame is no small feat, however, Acer has pulled off a miracle creating a nearly borderless Infinity display. This is also one powerful and long lasting machine powered by Intel's latest Skylake processors, all while coming in at a very affordable starting price. For these reasons, it easily takes the top slot as the best Ultrabook, the best Windows laptop and the best overall laptop. It's thinner and even more attractive in some ways with its purple-tinged aluminum body. With a sharp display and hearty helping of storage space, it's better equipped than Apple's titular thin-and-light. Add in the fanless design and long battery life, and this machine is one hot ticket. Most importantly, though, you can get this great package at a very affordable price.

      Advantages

      • "Plug-in power source"

      Disadvantages

      • "Low specs"

      Wasn't too bad, it really surprised me.

      This desktop was a great find on my end, One of the design features we're still not sure about is Acer's keyboard, which has the keys arrayed in a slight curve (think smiley face). The company claims it's more ergonomically friendly, but we found it takes a bit getting used to, and the keys are sitting a little closer than we like. Convenient touches we do like are the four-way scroll wheel between the mouse buttons, and four programmable quick-launch buttons above the keyboard.

      Corporate fleet buyers will more likely gravitate to the IBM ThinkPad T42 as Acer does not offer common accessories across its line or the OS image stability IT managers crave. But for small businesses and individuals, the Acer TravelMate 8000 could cost more and still not seem overpriced. Priced as it is, it seems a bargain.

      The TravelMate comes with the strongest 3D graphics solution in the group with the ATI Mobility Radeon 9700 with 128MB DDR SDRAM. This makes it a good choice (for a portable) when work ends and games begin. That GPU, along with the Pentium M 745 (1.8 GHz) processor and 4,200-rpm hard drive helped the TravelMate turn in the best Business Winstone score in this group (22.2)—besting even the HP Compaq entry with its Pentium M 755 (2.0 GHz) processor and double the amount of RAM. Acer's battery score was also impressive at 5:12 (hours, minutes), as was its wireless throughput. And with that I highly recommend this one feature of this computer in and of itself. Great system.

      Advantages

      • "Cheap . Quick for desktop use . Good extra keyboard functions ."

      Disadvantages

      • "NOISE . Looks strange ."

      family friendly

      I moved into a new office a couple of months ago, and needed something that went "beep" to sit in the middle of my desk. The option of spending lots of money wasn't there, so I looked around for a branded but cheap PC. For about £380 inc VAT I got the Acer. The spec is modest. 1.2GHz Duron, 40GB HD (the ads, invoice and web site all say 20GB, but I have 3 of these now, and they're all 40!) 52X CD-ROM drive, 128MB of RAM.

      Plugging it in was a breeze. Acer provide a wall chart thingy with pictures of sockets, cables etc., so you just hold something next to the picture to find out what it is, and plug it in! The mouse is a standard wheel mouse, but the keyboard is a USB one with a very nice touch, and it has a volume control (tap to mute), play/pause, stop, back and forward buttons, WWW and email buttons, plus 5 programmable buttons. Nicely, Acer have provided desktop software that lets you print the button layouts and there is a little see through window above the 5 keys that these printed labels fit into. They also provide blank labels you can write on. As a touch typist I find the Acer keyboard very nice to use. No harsh clicking, and no bouncy feel. Just right for my gently typing.
      The case itself is blue and grey. There is an easily removable flap at the front which covers the floppy and CD drive bays. With the flap up, there's just a light and a switch on the front. I think it looks slightly strange, but the flap cuts down a surprising amount of noise (see below) Going inside the case, there are 3 PCI slots, a separate AGP slot, two DIMM sockets, one with the 128MB in it and two IDE interfaces with proper two-device cables provided. The PCI slot covers are the snap-off type, but what do you expect for £300+VAT? On the rear of the case you have the standard PS/2 mouse and keyboard connectors, two USB ports, integral video card, sound card, game card and network card connectors, and a "hard" power switch, should the software front switch fail to operate in the event of a crash.

      Apart from the PC, keyboard and mouse, there isn't much in the box. The wall-chart, a system restore CD and a nice an "extras" CD with Adobe Acrobat and a few other essentials. The box has an integral carry handle, which is a sight better than having to heft the whole lot around under an arm. There's a one-year warranty in there too, although I have 4 of these PCs now at work, and they've been rock solid in day-to-day use.
      Right, it's all plugged in and I hit the power button. Yark! This PC is pretty noisy. Not whiny, or grunchy or squealy, thankfully, just a constant mid-tone thrum from the fans. In my working environment, it would be just fine, but in the office it's just slightly too loud. I suppose this is the "get what you paid for" trade off, and the only downside of the Acer I can really see.

      Within 30 seconds, Windows XP Home has loaded, and I batter through the registration process. Everything feels nice and snappy. I installed Office 2000 Pro, got my network connection up, and configured my mail and web clients. At this point it started to feel slightly slower, and a quick gander at Task Manager showed my Commit Charge going beyond 130MB with a couple of apps open. 128MB is just about the mininum requirement for any Windows based PC beyond Win98SE, so I bought an additional 256MB DIMM (£26+VAT). Fitting extra hardware is a breeze. A single screw at the rear of the side panel releases it, and there is very easy access to all areas of the machine's internals. Plugging in the 256MB DIMM was just a case of moving a couple of cables to one side (no disconnections necessary), and pressing it gently into the spare socket. Literally a 3 minute job. With the side back on, I powered up again, and had 384MB of RAM immediately. The extra memory makes an astounding difference. Boot times are down to about 35s, log in is just about 10s, and I can have Excel, Word, Opera and my email running in parallel and still have 177MB of free physical memory. It really does fly! I won't go into the joys of playing Medal Of Honor on it, because it isn't a joy. But it's a business machine at heart. Surfing the web, working with data, writing letters and reviews, sending emails. For this kind of work it excels, and with the multimedia keyboard a tap of the volume control silences things for answering the phone, talking to The Boss etc.
      A sheep in sheep's clothing. If you want a cheap, network ready PC, and don't mind a bit of background noise, you won't find much to beat the Acer for build quality and value.
