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: 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.
Acer's Aspire U Series all-in-one machine features a 27in capacitive touchscreen and a nice overall design

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.
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.
Excerpt: Fazit: Eine umfangreiche Ausstattung inklusive Blu-ray-Combo und ein starkes 27-Zoll-Touchdisplay bringen dem Acer Aspire 7600U-003 die meisten Wertungspunkte im Test. In den anderen Bereichen zeigt der Acer nur Standardleistungen, von der Core-i7-CPU hätten wir mehr Rechenleistung erwartet.
