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.
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
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.
Excerpt: The dream of the All in One is a simple standard that's rarely achieved. A full-power "desktop-in-a-display" that is simultaneously capable of serving as a general-use computer as well as a media streaming rig. Touch screens and Windows 8 are supposed to allow grab-and-go computing as well as more traditional deeper sessions.
Pros: High quality display, Living room friendly design, Responsive touch screen, Blu-Ray player
Cons: Pokey performance, Overpriced at $1,899, Subpar audio quality, Bloated with bloatware, Only 1920x1080 resolution
Excerpt: 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. See also: Group test: What's the best all-in-one PC?

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.
Conclusion: The Acer Aspire 7600U may not blow away the competition in terms of performance, but it does hold its own. When you also take into account the enticing array of entertainment features, from the Blu-ray drive to HDMI inputs – not to mention a design that you'll want to hang on your wall as art – it’s clear this model will tempt plenty of shoppers.
Pros: Glass-front design is stunning, Impressive array of ports, Spacious 1TB hard drive, Blu-ray player on board
