Competent Performance

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 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.

The product was received quickly (though the delivery company - Yodel - are appalling and screwed up repeatedly. Amazon sorted out and switched to a different company, but seriously don't ever use Yodel.)

Product does what it says on the box. I haven't had any issues, worked straight out the box, and I don't have to worry about anything.

I was very skeptical having seen the reviews on this product however after owning this PC for a week and using it day and night I am very impressed. I was recommended this line from a friend and have always relied on Acer products in the past and this one does not let me know, its stylish,quick, good value. this has an Intel i7 processor so runs like lightning. for those who are complaining because of a price hike, or those that don't even own the pc!! DON'T this is not helpful for prospective buyers. very pleased with my purchase.

Absolutely love this product, it's great value and works well - just a shame Amazon and Acer haven't resolved the issue with the VGA ports not working as it's clearly a problem in this machine (see other reviews). Had to go out and buy a hdmi cable to get it to work which was disappointing but I'll live with that given the rest of the machine's capabilities. I would recommend this.

Style Name: Core i7Size Name: 8GB RAM, 1TB HDD
Mine is an Acer XC600 with a Core i5 3340 processor, 1TB Hard Drive and 6GB Ram.

I wanted to use two screens as I have done with my previous Acer desktop, but despite having a VGA and HDMI port I could not get this to work. I then found that wobbling the VGA cable sometimes brought both screens back to life so it looked like a dodgy connection on the VGA as others have reported.

I took this to my local computer shop (U-Compute, Keswick), where it came from, expecting it to be sent back, and they identified the problem. The back plate through which the plugs go has been mounted too far away from the mother board and is too springy, so when you wobble a cable it pulls the others out slightly. This is a design fault. Their solution was to search through their HDMI cables looking for one with a slightly longer plug than the others. Replacing the cable with a Vivanco Prowire HDMI solved the problem. Other cheaper cables may also work fine, provided that they have a long plug.

So a poor piece of design from Acer, which may explain why people have been having the problems with monitor cables described, and why a replacement had the same issue as the original for one buyer.

Acer customer support helpline were particularly poor. Their Indian call centre insisted I did a full reset to solve the problem, saying this would take half an hour. It took a day and solved nothing.

Apart from that annoying fault and Acer's feeble customer services, the computer works very well.

Very quiet in operation which I love. The specs perform as well as the specs should. Don't like Windows 8 myself but that's neither here nor there really. Sorry this review isn't full of technical speak. If you need a fast computer that you mainly browse Facebook on or play games like Warcraft then this does the job. No complaints whatsoever. Very good family all-rounder.

As our old computer crashed and was irreparable we needed a new one. Our knowledgeable son advised us to get this one. I'm sure it will prove to be a good purchase, once we get used to it.
