Pros: well I got this as just a board an saw the NVidia chipset so I bought a 1.8 phenom x4 an it worked juss fine I put the board in a matx case to live with a gtx560 video card(with a corsair gs700 psu) an was able to play gta4 on max but had detail down
Cons: the only bad thing I see (remember im on windows 7 ) is the computer only runs at 400mhz but I had spare low latency ram I installed but it only read 400mhz still but thats not bad really it still plays games no bottleneck until bf4 I plan on am3 next
Pros: came with a nice 20" wide screen moitor and was a fast machine when working, lot of bang for the buck, nice price for a dual core processer.
Cons: after hard drive failed it has been a nightmare contacting acer about warrenty, after several calls and many people they are sending me a disk that will not work due to either harddrive problems or mother board not picking up harddrive,
"Very pleased overall, and not just because it's cheap"

Pros: 9 USB ports, small size, it is expandable despite what others say (2 PCI slots; throw the modem away). I'm not a high-end gamer, but the performance has been excellent on the stuff I've played (Enclave, Portal).
Cons: Plastic power and drive eject buttons feel clunky.
Pros: If fully functional, would have been good value for the money
Cons: Acer Service. They don't stand behind their product. They don't resolve obvious issues. I have sent this back 4 times. Originally optical drive failed. Then intermittent lock up, network lock up. They never resolved the issues.
