Review: Acer's Aspire U (model A5600U-UB13) is a stylish AIO with a few minor flaws

 

Undeniably good-looking, the Acer Aspire U all-in-one delivers a classy desktop computing and multimedia experience. We've selected it to serve as our reference desktop PC.

Attractive industrial design ; HDMI-in and -out ; Well-designed mouse and keyboard

Somewhat slow hard drive ; Integrated graphics ; Boots only from UEFI media

Undeniably good looking, the Acer Aspire U all-in-one delivers a classy desktop computing and multimedia experience.

Acer Aspire A5600U-UB13

 

The Acer Aspire A5600U-UB13 is a nice looking all-in-one desktop PC with a solid feature set and acceptable, though not exceptional performance. It's a decent all-in-one desktop at a decent price, but there are better systems out there for not much...

Large touch screen. Good ergonomics/tilt angles. HDMI in and out. Wireless keyboard and mouse

Lots of pre-loaded programs. Gesture control is gimmicky. Slower performance than other midrange AiO desktops

The Acer Aspire A5600U-UB13 ($999.99) is a decently priced all-in-one desktop with an Intel Core i5 processor, 6GB of memory, a 1TB hard drive, and a responsive 23-inch touch screen. It's a good introductory PC for Windows 8, since it has good...

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

The key is not to give in to temptation should you harbor any plans to use the system for serious multimedia production. For such cases, we'd advise you to resist the Aspire's charms and choose a slightly bulkier, more staid-looking model such as the...

Acer Aspire A5600 U review

 

The Acer Aspire 5600U is an elegant all-in-one PC. Its edge-to-edge glass frame extends all the way down its black, glossy bezel to form its clear base. It has a neat stand that flips out the back to support it.

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

Mediocre at best

 

Had I known about all these cons, I probably would have only bought it if it was under $600.

Great price, decent value, large screen, peripherals included

Microphone located in the worse position (on the side behind the screen)??? Why didn't they put it right beside the camera like a typical laptop ; System Update messed up on me. I needed to do a 8hr+ factory reset then reinstall all windows updates one...
