Summary: My computer is fully set up and in use all day. I use a lit keyboard. The computer is normally very quiet but when under load, one hears the main drive chugging away. I also watch videos and again the drive can be heard when at speed.I have experienced no real problems and am well pleased with it.
Summary: I've wanted an Apple for a long time but haven't wanted to spend the money... I'm still there, and honestly this is the best desktop for the price that I have ever had. I've owned for for almost six months now and have never had a problem with it, and in fact I still find myself pleasantly satisfied...
Summary: I got this when it was about $60 cheaper than it is currently listed. Lucky me. Though, I did have to spend more for one day shipping... Never mind that, this little computer is awesome! Since I got it I've been a little obsessed with it. I love Windows 7. I love trying out the latest features.
Summary: Bought this as the main HTPC for a 50 inch hdtv, and I can say that it performs that function exceptionally well. I put on XBMC as my main media player and haven't missed my WD HDTV since. The computer is extremely zippy and handles flash video very well even in high definition.
Summary: Four years ago I spent $1400 dollars on a popular gaming computer running Vista and needing 6 fans to keep it cool. The other day I received delivery of my Acer Aspire. I paid $300 for a refurbished unit. This small form factored CPU is faster and more powerful than my expensive older machine.
Summary: I am not very computer savvy, so can't comment about the technical stuff. But I have a small business and use my PC a lot. I know what works and what doesn't. I needed a computer that's fast, reliable and easy to use. And I didn't want to spend more than $500. This Acer fits my needs perfectly.
Summary: The only thing I did't like was the keyboard. All the keys are flat and make it hard to use without looking. The computer has been great so far, 2 weeks. It is easy to use, quite, small and easy to set up. I had no problems transfering all my data from my old windows xp computer.
