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-UB13 Review and Ratings


An elegantly thin design makes the Acer Aspire 5600U-UB13 an all-in-one to consider for light duty in your home. Don't be tempted by its sleekness should you require anything approaching heavy lifting.

Thin profile and sleek design ; Simple yet flexible stand ; Crisp 23-inch display with touch support

Lackluster performance ; Littered with bloatware ; No Blu-ray drive

There are a lot of good all-in-one desktops hovering around the $1,000 mark. If you're shopping for one, the odds are you'll be tempted by the sleek design of the Acer Aspire 5600U-UB13—perhaps the handsomest in the class. And if you need an all-in-one...

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...

Acer Aspire 5600U review


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...

Acer Aspire A5600 U review


This PC looks great and can play games, but you can get faster computers for less

The screen is only half the story in an all-in-one PC and, while the A5600 U’s design certainly makes it look like a high-end machines, the hardware underneath is a little underpowered compared to the competition at this price.

Acer Aspire 5600U review


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.

Acer Aspire 5600U DQ.SMLEK.001


Clear and crisp graphics

Slower than the three year old Packard Bell all-in-one that we replaced with the Acer product. Tends to hang up for quite long periods
