Acer Aspire M3200

 

Despite the quad-core processor and 4GB RAM, the M3200 is still a budget PC. If you're a bit strapped for cash and looking for a general purpose desktop, this might be the one for you.

Affordable price ; Quad-core and 4GB RAM will keep entry-level users from needing to upgrade for some time ; Hybrid Crossfire mechanism gives a performance boost at a small price

Hybrid Crossfire won't benefit all games ; Using Vista 32-bit means the 4GB RAM isn't entirely usable

Despite the quad-core processor and 4GB RAM, the M3200 is still a budget PC, coming in at an affordable AU$1,399. If you're on a strict budget and looking for a general purpose desktop, this might be the one for you.

Acer ASM3201 review

 

Despite sitting at number 5 in our £750 desktop PC chart, Acer's ASDM3201 is a good little PC with some unique features.

Considered as an entry-level Blu-ray system, the Acer ASM3201 is great. Although it’s rubbish for games, it can handle everyday computing tasks – and if you're into encoding video or 3D rendering, the quad-core processor could prove invaluable.

Consumer review by: Bryan (newegg.com)

Great computer, well worth the low price!

 

An amazing computer, lots of RAM, a pretty good CPU. It's quiet, the case is very sleek, I actually had a friend come over and ask me if the case was over 100$. Easy set up, good for gaming (playing CoD4 right now), and I'm impressed with some of the...

The computer is... a tiny bit big, not that big of a problem though

Can't beat it.

 

Great buy! for the price you get a FULL setup! Newegg is the best. super fast shipping as always, + the refund was going way beyond!

I am very happy with this set up. The 22in LCD is perfect. newegg also refunded me the $40.00 when the price dropped ; Video card is decent, not high end but above normal for the price range ; Vista is not as bad as I thought, bit how can you pass up a...

LOTS of Bloatware ; No Back up disks ; Wireless card is a little iffy with high loads ; the speakers it comes with are kind of cheap and make popping sounds

Good Deal

 

22 inches is really quite a large screen. With the added video card, and other good things, this is a great upgrade from my previous computer. Newegg was nice enough to refund my 40 bucks after the price fell a day after I bought it. Everything works...

Acer installs SOOOOO much stuff on the computer. 38 gigs pre-installed? Yowsa.... Other drawback is you have to create your own backup dvds (3 of them) in case Vista goes bad because no installation dvds, driver, cds, etc. come with the computer....

Desktop Review

 

Prompt shipment, all-around great product. It works, no issues

I popped my old hard drive into this new system. It's Vista, 32 bit, and it cannot support the full 4GB w/o burping and sputtering. And the onboard LAN cannot work. But my case is kind of irrelevant to the actual product. As for the actual product,...

Great Little Machine for the money!

 

Installing XP is not a trivial matter if you aren't familiar with installing oem drivers without a floppy drive. There are several ways to do it and I had very little trouble installing XP on this machine. I used the nLite utility to embed the SATA...

It's a great machine for the money. Acer's typically are. Love the small footprint

None really
