Acer Aspire AM1202-U1850A

 

Any computer aimed the low end of the PC market will make sacrifices to meet its price. The Acer AM1202-U1850A ($320 list) is no exception, although it outperforms (in nearly all areas) the nettops on the market in the same price range. The...

Inexpensive. Nice design touches. DVI and TOSlink connectors. Speedier than a nettop. Good expandability. Has cable management hutch

Too much crapware. Only 60-day subscription to MacAfee Internet Security. Single-core processor. Only 250W power supply

The Acer AM1202-U1850A is an inexpensive, basic desktop PC. It has enough bells and whistles to put it ahead of the inexpensive Atom nettop PCs, and would serve well as a supplemental PC for a growing household.

Not too bad

 

It performs just fine as an office machine and internet browser. I started out looking at components to build a new machine myself, then I saw this one prebuilt; I have always built my own machihes. Building a comparable machine to this Acer would have...

Good machine for the money. Performs well. Very quiet. Love the case and the USB connectors on top. Ordered on Tuesday and delivered on Friday

Case was slightly damaged during shipment, UPS's fault ; not so bad that I can't live with it. The hard drive has 3 partitions which can be fixed if I decide to

Great System!

 

UPS delivered this in an ice storm. Commendable that there was no delay. Plus i was really bored stuck inside due to the ice storm.

Well built solid case. Lot of USB and other ports. DVI monitor port as well. Computer is quick & responsive. Perfect for the average non gaming user who wants an all inclusive solution. Paired with a 22" Acer LCD - runs & looks great. Tip: make sure...

Should come with a premade recovery disk set. Mouse & Keyboard are a bit odd feeling but useable. 60 day trial of antivirus is unacceptable. Antivirus should be mandatory with every system & at least 1 yr of it

I would recommend this little guy to friends. Great value for the price.

Great little computer. Plenty for family and small business use. Love all the ports and how accessible they are

Does not come with back up disks. We had a power failure during install and had to wait for company to send back up disks in order to use the computer. That was a bummer

Nice little machine...

 

My mother is moving up from a Dell Dimension 2350i with XP Home...2.1ghz P4...512MB memory...and absolutley no room for upgrades because of Dell's use of proprietary parts in those days. This machine I would say is a 125-150% increase in performance...

I recently purchused this computer as an early Christmas gift for my mother. Very stylish and well designed case. The top tray with the USB ports positioned behind it is a nice feature...great for an mp3 player or camera. 8 USB total. Plenty of storage...

A couple things irritated me about this system...not really cons though. It comes preloaded with tons of apps and programs that seem to be of no use. It took me 3 hours to get rid of all the programs that I know myself and my mother will never use....

ok for price

 

an hdmi port would always be nice, but for the price and IGP, can't be too picky.

good price for adequate hardware. nice looking case, with plenty of USB slots

unbelievable amounts of crapware. included mouse, keyboard, speakers are mediocre. PC cannot hibernate. We discovered this after realizing that after going into sleep mode, it slips to hibernate after 30 minutes. If it goes into hibernate, it cannot...

Great

 

This is a great computer with good amount of ram. The case is beautiful with memory card reader in the front and with usb then another 4 usb ports on top with 4 in the back on the board the case has nice blue led powerbuttons and powerlights with the...

none great buy for that system

Great PC

 

Haven't noticed much difference between Vista Basic and Premium, it just dosen't have see thru windows.

Fast, Quiet, DDRII 800

Only has 2 memory dims, not 4 as listed at time of purchase. HDD is partitioned into 3 sections. Dosen't come with OS recovery disk, but was able to burn to a 8.5GB Dual Layer DVD. Tons of "Buy Me" trial games and software to uninstall

Consumer review by:

Cheap

 

dont buy it, let me buy more.

Case is made of flimsy plastic, feels of poor quality all over. Power supplys are horrible, expect to replace. Keyboard and mouse are horrible and you will throw them away soon ; Vista comes preloaded with 4x the trialware anyone else puts on, 85...

its high gloss which shows its of poor quality
