Acer Aspire M3200: A solid all-round desktop computer
21 September 2010
Summary: I have owned this desktop computer for a little over two years now, and overall, it has performed well. I've found that the dual-core processor and 2GB of RAM have been sufficient to run every-day applications at good speeds. The total hard drive space of 1TB is more than enough for storing videos, music, photos, games etc. It is also fairly quiet, even when running intense applications, but I have found that the DVD drive can get rather noisy at times.
Pros: large amount of storage space, pretty fast pocessing speeds
Cons: graphics card not suitable for gaming, small power supply
Summary: Only recently purchased the M3200. I don't do any gaming, but run several programs (Protools*Plugins as well remember*, while able to do other things at the same time. Loving the 4GB ram, allows plugins to run a lot more smoothly.
Pros: So not only is this a fantastic computer for all home-based stuff, it is also quite good for a lot of other things like mixing of music and multitasking.
Cons: Not really for gaming, but if you're interested in doing a little bit of gaming on it...maybe invest in a better video card.
Summary: I purchased an Acer M3200 on May 31 it developed serious fault (became unusable) on June 2. Replacement developed serious fault on August 20. Fault was repaired and machine broke the same day Acer support was extremely poor with 10+ days wait for techician to view computer.
Pros: When it was working was very responsive with 4GB RAM.
Cons: Machines seem to be of extremely poor quality with multiple hardware malfuntions.
Summary: Good workhorse, plenty of HDD space, the multi-processor makes multitasking effortless. I only have 3GB memory on mine but can still (without a problem) run Photoshop CS4, VMware Workstation + many other applications simultaneously without being slowed down.
Pros: Great allround workhorse, lots of card-slots and USB ports accessable from the front
Excerpt: "Acer E380 I picked one of these up at comet on sale sue to a shop refurbished and as such got a display model for a bargain price of £299.99, excitement and a sense of smugness when other customers were piped to the post by me, ok it didn't have a box and need some spit and polish but it was cheap and for what it is mega cheap!

Pros: Good Processor, plays nice with home productivity
Excerpt: "Bought this computer for the gf. It (along with Vista) was very easy to get up and running. Only issues have been with the operating system and the power button. The OS has run VERY well out of the box (so kudos to MS on that), but it is definetely NOT XP. The power button is easily hit if which is rather annoying.

Excerpt: ...più. Oppure sul desktop grazie all'icona acer empouring entravamo nella voce del ripristino inserivamo una password ed il ripristino del computer partiva in automatico. PROGRAMMI GIA' INSTALLATI Sono rimasta molto contenta quando ho visto che c'erano programmi già preistallati che io già usavo sul portatile come office la versione originale, live messanger per poter parlare con la mia famiglia, e soprattutto skipe, un'altra chat che funziona ...
