With the abundance of graphics-intensive multimedia and sharing applications available, smooth multi-tasking is vital. Keeping this in mind, Aspire Series PCs pack powerful processors from both Intel and AMD and memory options so your system always runs efficiently.
The Aspire XC600 models come equipped with the power of Intel processors. Choose from a dual-core Intel Pentium processor for efficient home computing, or an Intel Core i5 or i7, delivering intelligent performance that adapts to your individual needs. The Intel Core processors deliver great media processing for fast video editing and sharing, enthusiast class HD video playback, accelerated web browsing, and great mainstream and casual gaming experience.
The Aspire XC100 models are powered by AMD dual-core E-series processors. The AMD E-series processors increase both CPU and GPU frequency to improve performance and use an updated controller hub to enable lower platform costs. They also support DX11 and HD 7300 series graphic cards for better visual experience.
The Acer Aspire XC also includes 4GB, 6GB or 8GB of fast DDR3 memory, which offers twice the speed of DDR2, ensuring faster, more efficient multi-tasking. Add that to a large-capacity hard disk drive up to 1 TB that provides generous storage for work and multimedia files, and you've got a PC that can handle almost any task you care to throw at it.
Windows 8 has been reimagined to be all about you. Put what matters most right on your Start screen, and get instant access to your people, apps, sites and more, so you can spend less time searching and more time doing. Browse and discover thousands of apps in the Windows Store. Snap two apps side-by-side and multitask. Chat with a friend while scoping out a map, or watch a video while getting stuff done. With Windows 8, it's simple to do two things at once.
AcerCloud is your personal cloud. It shares your music, photos, videos and documents on your PC with all your devices. If your PC is in sleep mode, no worries, AcerCloud wakes it up for you. Your PC is always connected, you can access content via AcerCloud anytime anywhere.

The Aspire XC features a gigabit Ethernet port, for fast, stable wired connectivity, supporting data transfer rates of 1,000 megabits per second.
If you need an even bigger screen, the HDMI interface on selected models supports exceptional high-definition viewing on a full range of peripherals. Perfect for connecting to a big-screen HDTV, plugging a HDMI cable into your PC allows the transmission of both audio and high-definition video, up to a 1080p resolution.
This PC features a high-speed DVD drive that supports multimedia playback and media writing for backing up files without worry. The DVD Super Multi DL drive allows you to play, copy and burn DVDs, allowing you to make the most of your existing film library, and backup your precious files onto a physical disc for safe storage and easy transportation.
The multi-in-one card reader allows you to read and write to high-capacity storage media for file sharing, transfer and storage, including Secure Digital (SD), MultiMediaCard (MMC), Memory Stick PRO (MS PRO), and xD-Picture Card (xD) formats, making it easier to transfer and share media from your PC to your portable devices.
The Aspire Series PCs are attractive, ergonomic and durable. A variety of environmentally sustainable materials with inviting textures and sturdy construction endow the Aspire Series with a unique and solid feel.
The Acer Aspire XC is no exception. Space saving and easy to set up, this chassis is designed to contain all the power and efficiency you need in a multimedia PC, whilst still giving you a sleek and attractive look. The curved metallic black finish is complemented by a soft front-surface and attractive modern design touches such as the Acer logo in the top corner.
The Aspire XC series has been designed to be placed on a desktop, so it features lower-front USB ports and a card reader are grouped to make them easier to access and use.
