5 out of 5 eggsVery good PC

Pros: Good, fast PC, esp with 8Gb RAM installed...double density, you have to replace in pairs, I think on the last review he put a 2Gb stick in, which would make it read only 3Gb (only seeing half the RAM...*2X 1Gb that comes with it and 1X 2Gb*....would make it 3Gb)

Cons: Vista....I wound up stopping Vista's and McAfee's (will be getting rid of McAfee after 3 month trial) security...and got rid of most of the IE addons in Internet Explorer, it kept on locking up and overheating the CPU

Having a battle with Acer, they told me they dont support downgrading to XP, yet it clearly states (under the software specs) that they do (also the XP cd states they support it). I think that this system is so new, the techs have no idea that they dont know their keyster from a hole in the ground.

Other Thoughts: Great running machine, if you stop all the garbage running.

I think I figured out how to "downgrade", but waiting for Acer to tell me know, so I dont screw it up and lose

NewEgg made it 40 bux cheaper after I bought it, but thats ok, I still think it was worth it, NewEgg rocks, I havent had to send 1 thing back that I got from them...NewEgg rocks!!..Thank you NewEgg

3 out of 5 eggsGood enough, But could be better!

Pros: It is a nice running business system in a small case you can put just about anywhere. Good CPU, nice HDD and memory, etc. It does have a security chip, drivers & software on the system. Though we are not using it, the system does seem to have RAID & one 3.5" int. slot to put another drive for speed, backup and/or mirroring.

Cons: They have choked/limited this sytem by putting a 32 bit Vista Business OS on it. If you need to add memory for applications, the OS limits it to 3 Gb when the Motherbd can handle 8 Gb. Why would anyone put a 32 bit OS on a 64 bit system.
Also, very little to no information comes with this system and is available online for upgrading. Good luck on getting answers from Acer. New system as of Feb 2009 and theirs tech do not have information on it. After seeing what the system had, I feel the price should be more like $500 at this present time.

Other Thoughts: Not listed in NEWEGG's memory Configurator, Crucial listed the wrong memory, so by process of elimination, we figured out, went ahead & installed 4 Gb of DDR2 800 PC 6400 memory into this system, even though it only see's 3 Gb. As a tech, I am disappointed, but after we cleaned it out and put the memory in it, the lady using it just loves it and thinks it screams speed wise through her applications.
