Conclusion: Acer’s attempt to enter the premium all-in-one market doesn’t measure up. Performance, display quality, and value all come behind the competition, and these are the traits most important to an all-in-one. Dell’s XPS One , for example, starts at $1,599 with a 2560 x 1440 touchscreen and Core i5-3330s. In this configuration, the Dell has a much better display and offers better processor performance.
Pros: Attractive design, Excellent connectivity, Good graphics performance
Cons: Unexceptional display, Poor audio quality, Slow processor and hard drive, Not a good value
Conclusion: The Acer's elevated price, however, makes it harder to recommend. If you aren't married to Windows 8 and Blu-ray, the 27-inch iMac's higher performance and higher resolution make a stronger case for your all-in-one dollars.
Pros: Clean design and thin profile, Gorgeous 27-inch display, Useful port selection
Cons: Expensive, Application performance lags behind competition, Loaded with bloatware
Conclusion: So with the Aspire 7600U, we have a computer that's shooting for high-end but doesn't quite make it. The screen is definitely the star of this show at 27-inches with 1080p HD and ten-point multitouch to boot. The whole unit looks great too; no cheap looking stand, a slim design despite the fact that Acer had to cram so much hardware behind that screen, and an overall look that does scream “high-end.” The problem, though, is with the hardware.
Summary: The Acer Aspire 7600U is an impressive-looking all-in-one PC, with a large, 27-inch touchscreen, edge-to-edge glass bezel, and clear glass base. However, it's also got a mobile processor, which means it's less powerful than its desktop-processor-sporting counterparts.
Excerpt: There's no denying that the Acer Aspire 7600U is one of the most striking all-in-one PCs that we've ever seen. Its large 27in display has a gorgeous edge-to-edge glass bezel that extends all the same down to its transparent base, and its slim handle-like stand flips out the back to support it. It’s height-adjustable, too, with 80 degrees worth of screen tilt.
Summary: As far as anything with a 27in screen can feel floaty, this all-in-one does. The clear perspex hanging from its edge-to-edge glass screen gives it a lightness from the front, though you’ll find it more industrial from other angles.

Summary: Acer's Aspire U Series all-in-one PC is designed to run Windows 8 and, as such, features a huge 27in capacitive touchscreen. It's a good looking machine with a strong and easy to adjust stand, and it has a decent array of ports. Performance supplied from notebook-calibre components is good enough to allow this PC to be used for most office-type work, multimedia tasks and some gaming.
Summary: Acer's latest all in one doesn't quite have it all
Pros: High quality display, Living room friendly design, Responsive touch screen, Blu-Ray player, By far, the best thing about the Acer Aspire 7600U is its crisp 27-inch display. It's true that an IPS panel feels more appropriate at this price point (Apple's iMac has one), as does support for a higher resolution than 1920x1080. But it's a large, attractive screen, and that counts for something. Additionally, the touch screen is responsive, both at the Windows 8 general inte...
Cons: Pokey performance, Overpriced at $1,899, Subpar audio quality, Bloated with bloatware, Only 1920x1080 resolution, Our biggest problem with this system is that it just isn't fast enough. The 7600U's lack of pep is immediately noticeable upon start-up. And not just by us—friends and family who used the system all had the same reaction. "Is something wrong with this system? It feels slow." When civilians are saying this, you know you have a problem. When you look at a sy...
