Acer Aspire X1200 SFF system review

9 October 2008
  • Conclusion: Acer one-ups the competition by providing 4GB of system memory and complimenting it with a 64-bit OS, Windows Vista Home Premium. This was my first time working with a 64-bit OS for an extended period of time and I couldn’t tell much difference from a 32-bit OS. Where I could see an advantage, however, was with the added system memory. As we all know, Vista can be a memory hog, so having a full 4GB on tap was a nice luxury for such a modestly priced system.

Acer Aspire X1200-U1520A

21 September 2008
  • Summary: The Acer Aspire X1200-U1520A is a speedy, compact, low-end desktop that's powerful enough to serve as a light-duty home theater PC. Expansion is limited by an especially cramped interior (even for a small PC), but the total package is worthwhile for PC shoppers on a budget.
  • Pros: 64-bit Windows Vista PC with an impressive list of features for less than $500; compact case; HDMI output.
  • Cons: Limited expansion options because of its cramped interior; lacks built-in Wi-Fi; may require some tweaking to achieve proper HDMI output; no standalone digital audio output.
