Conclusion: If you’re a bargain shopper, $700 may seem like a lot for a modern desktop system. However, our comparison shopping showed the Acer to be in line with systems from other manufactures. You can receive a much better discrete graphics card, but to obtain that you usually have to sacrifice some power in the processor or some hard drive capacity. We like this Acer’s quiet, cool operation as well as its shapely design and plethora of ports.
Pros: Small, attractive enclosure, Plenty of USB ports, Extremely Quiet, Affordable
Cons: Some ports could be more accessible, Little room for expansion, Disappointing discrete graphics performance
