Acer Aspire X1200 SFF system review


Acer one-ups the competition by providing 4GB of system memory and complimenting it with a 64-bit OS, Windows Vista Home Premium. This was my first time working with a 64-bit OS for an extended period of time and I couldn’t tell much difference from a...

Expert Review


The energy-efficient Acer Aspire X1200 lacks the features it needs to be the green media solution it wants to be.

Tiny, Energy efficient, Quiet, HDMI and eSATA ports provided

Pedestrian performance, Limited expandability potential

Gets the job done well


Great speed, real compact, plenty of USB ports and card slots, comes with all the accessories you'll need, and comes with that giant monitor. A really great value

Comes preloaded with the typical junk software, but it can be removed fairly easily. Doesn't come with a disc copy of Vista Home, so reformatting will be difficult

Further comments on my review


It looks like a lot of people didn't like my review, so I will explain some more. The computer I got shorted out the first time I plugged it in, and then it never powered up. It has the strangest on/off switch I have ever seen: a bent piece of plastic...

Appears to be a good deal

Computer didn't work

Not one bit satisfied (so far)


The machine I got is totally defective. New Egg promptly agreed to replace it, and I am awaiting that. But I suspect that someone somewhere knowingly sent me a worthless machine. I will update my review when I finally get a working unit, but if I could...

Good sized, inexpensive monitor that seems to work well

Could not even get the computer to turn on. Cables and connections don't match up, and are not the same as what is on the instructions. No manual or discs for the computer

Great value, everything so far has worked without a hitch. Very fast. The monitor looks great, although, I wish it had a glossy finish. But for the price, you can't complain

Nothing major. This thing comes loaded with software, which is a pain, but you come to expect that. My biggest issue was that the stock power supply is so weak. I foresee some problems when I install a video card that needs a bigger power supply,...

Don't Buy ACER!!


Great Drive plus light scribe for very cheap what else could you ask for.


I purchased this AX1200 from ACER several months back. I could not get audio working over the HDMI port. After many many e-mail exchanges with their inept customer NO service, they agreed to take it back for repair. Upon receiving it they claimed the...

Great Economy PC


Buy it, great piece and great value

This PC is a great economy PC, and it does what it is supposed to do. Its not a gaming PC ect, its a general Internet/home/school use PC. Its fast and the dual core CPU runs smooth. The screen is great too. I did not have any issues with the internet...

This has a bit of heat inside the case. Make sure you keep it clear around the sides and all. I may upgrade the stock CPU fan with a higher CFM one to aid in cooling the CPU and surrounding chips. You cant really get a better heatsink in there due to...

great pc and great service!


I love this pc! This was a darn good deal in my opinion! Ill wright another review once ive used this for awhile

6 front USB ports comes in really handy! the speakers work great! the LCD is great for watching movies and for computer use in general. The dvd/cd burner/reader is really quite. I got this for my 16 birthday and when it came in my parents and my uncles...

The open/close button is kind of hard to locate at first cause its now right on the cd/dvd drive, but its located on the case ; I personally didn't like the mouse that came with it, so I ordered a different one along with this PC, but thats not really...
