Acer Aspire M3970 Review

 

Desktops lost their dominance of the consumer market to laptops years ago, but that doesn't mean they packed up and went home. If you visit a big box retailer, you'll still see a fair number of inexpensive desktops, and they're there for the obvious...

Small, attractive enclosure ; Plenty of USB ports ; Extremely Quiet ; Affordable

Some ports could be more accessible ; Little room for expansion ; Disappointing discrete graphics performance

If you are looking for a simple desktop that can handle basic use, the Acer M3970 is a good choice. Those who want to game, and those with hopes of one day building their desktop up to something more powerful, should look elsewhere.

Acer Aspire AM3970: Power and a Low Price, but Not Much Else

 

“There was a time,” as the song goes, when desktop systems that earned high performance scores on our benchmark tests were heralded as best-in-class devices; a time when pushing a performance score into the 100s, the 130s, and even the 150s meant that...

Great price to performance ratio ; Ample storage

Limited port selection ; Lacks room for significant upgrades

If you're looking for one of the most inexpensive Sandy Bridge offerings short of building a desktop yourself, the AM3970 doesn't disappoint. It just doesn't offer much else beyond that.

So Far So Good

 

Unit is fast and quiet. No problems at all. Keeping my fingers crossed. I can only hope it lasts at least 6 years as my last PC.

Great computer

 

I recently upgraded to an Acer at work and was so impressed with how well it worked and how quiet it is that I knew I would get one when we upgraded at home. The time finally came to replace our 5 year old Systemax and I have been very impressed with...
