Summary: While it might work as a decent touchscreen AiO for your parents, it most certainly doesn’t have the chops for a power user. If you’re looking for something that lives up to the “all-in-one” moniker, we recommend spending $300 more for the Asus ET2300, which features much better specs all around.
Conclusion: The key is not to give in to temptation should you harbor any plans to use the system for serious multimedia production. For such cases, we'd advise you to resist the Aspire's charms and choose a slightly bulkier, more staid-looking model such as the Asus ET2300INTI or the Lenovo IdeaCentre B540.
Pros: Thin profile and sleek design, Simple yet flexible stand, Crisp 23-inch display with touch support
Cons: Lackluster performance, Littered with bloatware, No Blu-ray drive
Excerpt: The Acer Aspire A5600U-UB13 is a nice looking all-in-one desktop PC with a solid feature set and acceptable, though not exceptional performance. It's a decent all-in-one desktop at a decent price, but there are better systems out there for not much more money.
Excerpt: All-in-ones computers are becoming more common, which Windows 8 definitely can take a lot of credit for. But of course Apple has a tendency to make others want to jump on the bandwagon, and it's no different with the iMac. What's more interesting is that the pedigree of the manufacturer often seems to determine how the all-in-one will look. Samsung's resemble their televisions, and Dell's have more of a business appeal.
Conclusion: The Aspire 5600U performed fairly well in our suite of benchmarks, posting decent scores in both PCMark and 3DMark for its features specs. Framerates during some of the 3D tests were acceptable, with the lowest being 27fps during one of the animation sequences. Running Diablo III at maximum resolution and settings yielded 47fps when running around town, but dropped to 33fps during combat and heavy effects.
Summary: The Acer Aspire 5600U packs a vivid high-definition touch-enabled screen into a slim and attractive body, making it a good choice for family computing in the living room. It's sadly let down by only average performance that doesn't help justify the relatively high asking price.
Pros: Sleek and attractive design, Bold, high-definition screen, HDMI input allows it to function as a screen for games consoles
Cons: Quite pricey, Only average performance, No Blu-ray drive
Conclusion: Recomendada principalmente como centro de cómputo para el hogar, dado que puede albergar distintas cuentas en un mismo equipo y brindar en cada sesión la misma calidad de velocidad y excelente rendimiento.
Pros: Cuenta con todas las opciones de conectividad necesarias para trabajar. La resolución de la pantalla es excelente. Tiene 1TB en disco duro 8GB de memoria RAM, lo primero se traduce en todo un centro de trabajo y entretenimiento, y lo segundo lo dota de velocidad para cualquier cosa que necesites.
Cons: La respuesta al tacto al momento de hacer acercamientos y alejamientos es un poco lenta.
