Acer Aspire M3985


Desktop manufacturers have been gradually updating their products in wake of Ivy Bridge's release. Intel's new processors have bigger numbers than the old ones, after all. However, because these are desktops and not laptops, designers have no...

Attractive enclosure ; Plenty of connectivity ; Lots of RAM and large hard drive ; Inexpensive

Terrible 3D performance ; Poorly located power and optical drive buttons

The M3985 is a simple, competent PC. It provides enough power for many users, it’s silent and it has no serious flaws.

Acer Fails Here!


None, this thing fails! Should be 0 stars

First one was DOA. Second one failed 1 day before 1 year warranty expired. Acer would not honor because shipping time would arrive after warranty and would charge to repair. Terrible product

Extremely happy with this computer


I think this was a great value on a computer that has the horsepower to be viable as a primary home computer for years to come. I would recommend it, and Newegg, highly.

I've had this computer for about a week now, and I am loving it. It is stable, with great specs for the price. I searched around a lot and didn't find anything else that had a quad-core Intel processor and 8GB RAM for the $550 I paid ; I've done some...

The keyboard that comes with this computer is a piece of junk. It works just fine, but the buttons are all basically the exact same size and aligned in a huge grid, so it's really hard to find more out-of-the-way keys. Can be fixed by just using any of...

Awesome deal! HDMI, 8gb ram, 1tb hard drive, super fast 3rd gen processor. Motherboard has integrated hd graphics so no need for a dedicated video card unless you plan on playing games. Very fast start up and shut down speed. Usb 3.0 slots. Very sexy...

No wifi capability. Only thing i had to buy was a wireless adapter for it. I shoulda read the specs but just assumed it had wifi because of all the other features. I ordered an intel wifi adapter and works flawlessly with the pc

This PC Rocks!


Bought this PC to upgrade from an OK old Dell, but needed power and speed for Lightroom 4.1 which was just way too frustrating to use on the Dell. Cut processing time from 30 minutes to 2 minutes on one application for HDR!! Need I say more? Works...

Lightning Fast! Boots up Quick. Quiet. Burns CDs very fast and accurately. More

None so far. Well maybe the position of the front USB ports on top of the machine and that's it so far
