5 out of 5 eggssolid

Pros: 8gb of ram, 2nd gen i-5 cpu is fast (turbo works very well), huge hard drive.

Cons: the power supply is really small, so if you ever want to add anything you'll have to upgrade the psu. also the motherboard only has 1 pci-e 2.0 slot so look elsewhere if you want to xfire. the tower is also quite small.

Other Thoughts: makes for a great base for a budget gaming pc. i purchased an evga geoforce gtx 550 ti fermi video card and a 550 watt power supply for about 170 together. so i got the whole system for under $800. It averages about 35 fps for crysis 2 on extreme when the gpu is overclocked. my buddy supply got the same exact set up and neither of us has had a single problem after 2 months and we both game a lot.

1 out of 5 eggssix hours at $150 an hour + 10 days at my IT's house

Pros: It has a nice finish

Cons: $900 to have the operating system removed and replaced, 6 hours at $150.00 an hour to get all the viruses off that came with it. I got it back last evening and I just booted it back up. I get audio or video but I can't get both at the same time. Have never been able to use Itunes or import/export music for that matter. It's been to an IT's house 3 times. nothing but a headache. This PC was recommended to me because it has everything I need. I will never buy ACER again or shop Newegg again. Looks like I'm off to the Mac store.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat computer for the price

Pros: This is machine has been great for me so far. Not a single hitch. Love the 8GB of Ram, and i5 Core. My first desktop after years of laptops and I am highly satisfied.

Cons: No dedicated graphics card. Purchased http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121442 and got better quality graphics for less price than buying an Acer machine with a dedicated graphics card (that is weaker than the 6670)

Other Thoughts: Great computer for everyday use however if you plan on doing any gaming I highly suggest the Radeon HD 6670 linked to above. I am able to run many games on higher settings.

1 out of 5 eggspiece of junk

Pros: After researching this model completely, we decided it was a great buy. It lasted 1.5 months and then crashed. The hard drive had to be replaced. Of course there's no recourse with New-egg on a computer past 30 days. You may get a good one but you may get a bad one too!

Cons: After researching this model completely, we decided it was a great deal. It lasted 1.5 months and then crashed. The hard drive had to be replaced.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Machine

Pros: This machine exceeded my expectations. I bought the machine as a replacement for a machine that was aging. I needed a machine quickly that could keep up with my constant multitasking. It is a workhorse you will not be disappointed.

Cons: No cons I have not experienced not one problem.

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful beastly machine

Pros: Great machine for the price. I got it and switched out the power supply and graphics cards. I habitually have chrome open with 20-30 tabs running at any given time, as well as netflix streaming to one monitor while playing sc2 on max settings, or wow, ect., without any problems. I'm still waiting for the machine to stop to think, or freeze up. It's not happened yet.

I also keep a few extra programs running in the background. So far, this machine has been able to deliver everything I've asked of it and more.

Cons: Possibly the poor onboard power supply, but that's pretty common these days. Same with the graphics card.

Other Thoughts: This is the first computer I've had that was able to keep up with the sheer amount of random tasking that I do. I'm very impressed both with the price and the value of the machine. Definitely worth grabbing if you get the chance.

3 out of 5 eggsEhhh... Alright, I suppose

Pros: Nice looking case, loads of USB ports on front and back, fans are incredibly quiet.

Cons: Under-powered, and the on-board graphics are terrible, as to be expected. I know this is not a gaming machine, but my 7 year old desktop with 2 gigs of DDR2 runs my games (Skyrim, FSX, and the like) much better and on higher settings. I have Skyrim set to the absolute lowest settings and it is still almost unplayable due to the choppy graphics and poor frame rate. If you buy this computer, and want to play games at all (other than solitaire or freecell), plan on buying an aftermarket video card.

4 out of 5 eggsGood machine for the price

Pros: Excellent speed, comes with plenty of RAM

Cons: Not a gaming computer (300W power supply).

Other Thoughts: If you want a powerful machine that you won't necessarily use for gaming, this is for you.

5 out of 5 eggsUpgrade Beauty

Pros: Definitely a Value machine

Cons: Only thing I can think of is, as another reviewer stated, too much "Bloat-ware" included

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a 10 yr old do it yourself AMD Athlon machine w/ XP. This computer brings me way up to date. I thought I might need a video card to stream Hulu Tv, but so far, I don't.
