Expert review by : Ty Pendlebury (

Acer AcerPower 1000


The AcerPower 1000 is an excellent system housed in a compact and quiet body, and should enjoy wide appeal.

Quiet ; Decent performance ; Attractive appearance

Monitor not included

Performance With so many grunty components on board it's no surprise that the AcerPower is quite a performer. Using our PCMark05 benchmark we were able to extract a score of 3585 marks. This is a decent score for an economical desktop, and certainly...

Prior reviews were good, so we bought it - BIG, BIG MISTAKE


The built-in wireless 802.11g technology is good

Their "textbook" design is faulty and they can't fix it

Acer Power AP1000-UD400P Athlon 64 X2 4000+ 1GB DDR2 160GB NVIDIA GeForce 6150 Windows XP Professional


XP-PRO was a major consideration

Price, quality, form factor all excellent. Also liked the option of having it on it's side or horizontal with the monitor on top of it ; IT HAS XP-PRO INSTALLED

No serial port, or provision for installing one. I know they are 'old fashioned,' but my wife's embroidery machine needs one and several USB to serial devices failed

Little package, Great value


Have a recordable DVD ready, because after it starts up the 2nd time it will bring up automatic eRecovery procedure. I recommend you do this, because there is no recovery cd's that come with it.

Built-in Wireless G with antenna is great, having 8 usb ports is handy. having, also having both dvi and vga port. Good bang for the buck

would have like to had it have a firewire port. and the pre-installed anti-virus and toolbar in IE were annoying, wish didn't come with any 3rd party software installed

Good PC


I'm using it with a 19"W Acer monitor. both work great together. Monitor sits nicely on top of the PC.

I like the small form factor. PC works good. I'm using it as a second PC for the kids in the game room. Space was limited so the form factor was important to me. I'm a big Intel fan but must say I'm pleased so far with this AMD based system

The usual software junk that needs to be cleaned off all new pc's. other than that works fine

Acer AP1000


I have been buying from Newegg for 3 years with no problems until now and I am in the computer business, This is totally wrong not to replace defective merchandise no matter what it may be.


I purchased this machine on 11/29/07, I received this machine 12/04/07 yesterday. This machine did not work out of the box-would not boot up. NEWEGG says there is nothine they can do about this, but on the order page, it says tjis unit is returnable...

Small, fast, and quiet - mostly


If ACER would fix the vibration of the CD/DVD drive, I would give this a 5 out of 5. But because of the noisy drive, I gave it a 4 out of 5.

This unit is REALLY small, and that's great for persons with limited desktop space. The silver and black case is very nice looking. Front panel audio and mic jacks are handy for a VOIP headset or headphones, and the four(!) USB ports on the front and...

Lacks a PS2 port so I couldn't use my KVM switch box. Also, when the PC is upright in its stand, it is a bit confusing which way to insert a CDrom. Speaking of the CDrom, it can be really noisy with some cd's. (With MS Office 2003 it vibrated a lot and...

First box I've ever bought pre-built. Had random shutdowns preceeded by loud fan. Would work after letting it sit but never really got hot (no smell, cool to touch). Sent it to Acer repair in TX and got it back with new MB 3 weeks later. Seems to be a...

I have an L100, which is basically the same rig. I've read some horror about Acer support but I was pleased with their repair service ; Small. Very small

Optical drive is loud ; It's a pseudo-laptop. Upgrading hardware is not a design feature

Great Machine


Got this computer after the Dell I bought arrived DOA. Newegg was awesome and got this Acer to me in 3 days. It's much smaller than I expected and is about the size of a large capacity external drive. Not too many crapware on it. Also, I've found Acer...

Small size, fast start, quick machine

My first Acer computer, was worried about talking to tech support. I've got lots of experience talking with Dell tech support and could only imagine what Acer would be like. 10 minutes on the phone and I had my approval to ship it to a repair facility....

Small form factory, looks great in my entertainment center. Going to use it to stream video and audio from NAS. Acer has great tech support, I was on the phone about 10 minutes

DOA - Dead on Arrival ; Can't believe it, power supply failure. I guess it had to happen to me sooner or later, but Newegg still rocks. Even if their return policy kind of sucks, had to talk with Acer tech support

Product Specifications

Designed for today's digital office, the AcerPower 1000 is small and stylish yet packs a powerful punch. This ultra-compact system has a physical volume of just over three quarts (three liters), about one-tenth the size of typical tower desktops. The almost-silent operation of the AcerPower 1000 (26 decibels, better than the industry standard) is conducive to a productive work environment. In addition, its low power consumption prolongs component life and reduces long-term costs.
