Acer Aspire 5600U Review

 

The Acer Aspire 5600U is a slim and somewhat-sexy all-in-one. It features a 1.3-inch-thin chassis and a 23-inch display atop a clear-plastic base, giving the illusion that it's floating in air. Once you get past the aesthetics, however, you'll find...

Weak performance all-around; lackluster specs; no discrete graphics

Acer Aspire 5600U Review

 

A surprising entry into the all-in-one category.

Good performance, responsive touch interface, includes HDMI In, Windows 8 looks and performs exceptionally

Audio could have been better, bundled mouse feels a bit flimsy, unit can heat up quickly, OSD buttons can be a bit hard to reach

The Aspire 5600U performed fairly well in our suite of benchmarks, posting decent scores in both PCMark and 3DMark for its features specs. Framerates during some of the 3D tests were acceptable, with the lowest being 27fps during one of the animation...

Sitting at the low end of the price range, Acer's Aspire 5600U is a pleasantly stylish 23in all-in-one with some great features.

This is a good-looking all-in-one at a sub-£1000 price, but it’s noticeably slow and the nVidia graphics aren’t enough to elevate gaming performance to truly playable levels. It offers a large bundle of pre-installed software and comes with good...

Sleek and attractive design ; Bold, high-definition screen ; HDMI input allows it to function as a screen for games consoles

Quite pricey ; Only average performance ; No Blu-ray drive

The Acer Aspire 5600U packs a bright and vivid Full HD display into a sleek and attractive body, making it a good option for family computing in the living room. It's sadly let down by only average performance that doesn't justify the relatively high...

Distinctive design and reasonable performance; misses out on an award by a whisker

The Acer makes a good first impression, and in many ways it’s a fine all-in-one. However, its main rival – the Asus ET2300 – costs almost £200 less and is better in most areas. Ultimately, that’s the machine we recommend you buy.
