Acer Aspire ATC-605-UB11


The Acer Aspire ATC-605-UB11 budget desktop has enough features to keep basic PC users satisfied, throws in Wi-Fi capability, and offers enough expansion room for future upgrades.

Nice price. 8GB of memory. 5GHz Wi-Fi support. Good connectivity. Solid performance numbers. Storage tray

Lots of bloatware. The 300-watt power supply limits upgrades

The Acer Aspire ATC-605-UB11 ($599 as tested) is a solid budget desktop computer with a speedy fourth-generation Intel Core i5 processor, 8GB of memory, a bit of room for expansion, and it comes with Wi-Fi (a relative rarity in budget tower PCs). It...

Works Great


Great computer for a budget system.

Not a high end computer for sure but it was bought to run a Point of Sale system for my store and do some basic internet things. It has worked out great. Also to newegg the abbreviation for Point of Sale is not a bad word thanks for the warning though.

had windows 8.1 on it and its locked in the bios making it difficult to get windows 7 on it but in the end now that it has windows 7 it works fine.

Not too enthused.


I bought this to put my new gfx card in, ended up gutting the entire thing and putting it into a bigger case. Great home desktop one could fit a smaller size graphic card easily enough with alright airflow. No much room to add fans on there are no...

Works great is super fast ofc it has the 4600 i5 how could it not be fast? 8GB of ram is nice runs basically anything I run ArcheAge x2 Pandora and no issues. CHEAP the price of the processor itself is half this desktops

Poorly designed case Will not fit gfx card in very easily No room for extra hard drive Super Small case

Good and bad


Would not recommend as a primary system.

Good feature set for the price. Good balance of performance and cost for a home office. Black case is contemporary and unobtrusive. Included OS backup/restore to USB drive utility (and it works).

Requires hours of setup time to remove of all the the adware, malware, and fake-ware that comes pre-installed. DVD drive non-functional on arrival. No big deal; purchased a new one from Newegg for $15. Internal Seagate hard drive failed after 60 days,...

Good Buy


We bought 3 of these systems for our office after receiving some pretty bad service dealing with Dell. I have to say these systems are a great value and work well thus far. -very fast -strong wifi connection (where others get weak signal) - easily...

Comes with a good deal of extra Acer/Add-on software which we easily removed doing a clean upgrade to Windows 10.

The wife said, "Well, it looks nice

Right out of the box, a dead unit. Plugged everything in and NOTHING, not even a hum or fart. Tried several other power cords, still nothing. What a huge letdown

Sleek Looking - Only DVI\HDMI video


I bought 4 of these for a project. I erased and installed fresh copy of Windows Pro 8.1. Only had to install Realtek Card reader driver. Windows 8.1 found all other devices. I dinged one star because of no DP\VGA video out.

Sleek looking, fast as an i7 should be, 7200 RPM hard drive, USB 3.0, Space for an additional hard drive, USB 3.0 ports and SD card slot on front, one empty slot for memory. Has Windows 7 Pro preinstalled, Windows 8 product key in Bios

Only DVI or HDMI video out, no std VGA or DP ports, comes with 8GB in one slot, one free memory slot for expansion. Has Windows 7 Pro preinstalled, Windows 8 product key in Bios. Limited ports on back, 4 USB, 1 HDMI, 1 DVI port

Greatest Pre Built PC I've ever bought


Runs very well. Very fast. And a beautiful mix for the price. The issues there are are can easily be fixed. So all in all a great pc.

Very fast. Honestly for the Price this is one of the best PC's you can possibly find. Comes installed with windows 8.1 however during the install it asked me to upgrade to 10. Plug and play. Honestly this pc is incredibly fast. I do recommend keeping...

Honestly I gave this a four egg for minor minor problems. First off would have to be the cpu. All though I gave it praise in the pros. It does run a little hot. Not the cpu's fault however the cooler on this isn't the best but don't worry you'll be...
