The Aspire Z5610 is a breath of fresh air for those who nurture a phobia of advanced technologies. For instance, I was dreading the task of transferring data from my old computer; the Acer did it for me through my broadband connection. I did not have to do much thinking, just had to follow their very clear instructions, the machine did the rest. From then on, I was in familiar territory.
On every aspect of computing, this Acer assumes that you are a beginner, without insulting your intelligence; it will take you by the hand and show you the way. It is fast for any task, and with 1 terabyte of hard disc, you will never be able to fill it.
My only regret is that I did not buy it earlier.

The computer was just what was described and am very pleased with it. Very good value for money considering other retailers were asking same price for a lower spec version of the machine. A little more instruction would of been useful. Problem with delivery was sorted by Amazon and express delivery fee refunded.

Excellent product from Acer, looks good and works really well, takes up less space even though it is a larger screen than I had before, not gone through everything so far, but what I have been using is very good, it does take time time to get used to using the touch screen as by resizing photo's ect; I am very happy with it so far, only downside so far, it would have been nice to have a built in blue ray player to take advantage of HD screen. Excellent delivery from Amazon arrived in 16 hours.

I have recently bought this for software demonstration purposes. I was just so impressed by the graphics and screen clarity together with the tidy and neat design that the touch screen control became really a secondary issue for me.

I am not a gamer, but I am sure that this screen would delight anyone.

Be careful; the graphics card is actually an ati radeon 512mb, rather than the nvidia that is advertised.
I have found that even after i have improved to 8gb ram that the computer still struggles with playing music whilst
displaying moving images! it is fine with videos when nothing else is going on. However, when playing a song within
itunes and scrolling through album artwork the song often jitters and the mouse will stick momentarily.
Its a minor point but annoying. There is a model that boasts a 1gb graphics card - perhaps if your budget can stretch
go for the next one up.

Having said all of that it is a lovely machine. The touch screen is very responsive.
it is quick. it looks good. the built in tv tuner works great so long as you have a good aeriel.
the sound quality is also far better than i had hoped.

Many of the reviews I have read about the 5610 All In One have critised the lack of an instruction manual. Personally if you have had a PC before this All In One is so easy to setup a manual is not necessary and as with a lot of other desktop Pcs you can acess all the information you need from the companys website and download the manual from there. I am more than impressed with my purchase it is very fast and more than copes when I have multiple applications open. The reason I have only given four stars is purely because theres always room for improvemnet.

Not being a computer techie, I always dread setting up a new computer with a new operating system I have to learn all over again, but the Acer was surprisingly easy to set up, even with ethernet internet connection and wireless printer. I had a problem with the keyboard as the computer was set up to receive English (USA) which means that the keyboard does not type the symbols on the keys (for example @ comes out as " and vice versa). It took a while to change this to English (UK)....given I bought it in the UK and the keyboard was a UK keyboard, it's not unreasonable to ask why the computer wasn't set up for this. Also, it comes with a lot of programmes which in fact are only for trial. The main loss here is that Microsoft Office (including Word, which everyone uses) is not included, although you might be fooled into thinking it is as a shortcut for it appears but in fact, it is just a trial version for 60 days only. Works word processor is a poor substitute. Also many of the games are trial only and should you want to buy them, you are directed to a US site with prices in US dollars. I'm not sure how many of the other programs that appeared at set up come with the computer or are just for a trial period as there is no manual (as has been mentioned). I downloaded the manual from computer but it is of limited use, covering such things as looking after your eyes/computer rather than how to use the thing. I think it would be a nightmare for anyone buying a computer for the first time. There is a McAfee security program (trial only I think) with a pop-up which keeps coming up requesting a restart of my computer. This is annoying as I don't use McAfee but Symantic. On the positive side, the screen is huge and bright. The sound is good and the lagoon screen saver is really beautiful. The screen is touch screen like the Macs.

My Acer Aspire Z5610 overheats and shuts down without warning even when idle use a CPU intensive program and it is much worst, strange as it may seem the fans seem to switch off when the computer gets hot so my guess it is fault on the bios.
