Acer Aspire X1700-U3700A

 

The Acer X1700-U3700A is slightly slower than the competition, but it gives you almost every component you need in either a basic desktop or a light-duty home theater PC. If you prefer functionality to performance, we recommend this model out of the...

Acer Aspire X1700-U3700A

 

The Acer Aspire X1700-U3700A ($480 list) is a small-form-factor desktop, shoehorning a full-powered PC into a smaller chassis. It's got enough oomph to run some serious programs, yet is priced under $500. It could be the replacement for that primary PC...

Compact form factor. Some DX10 3D capabilities. More powerful than nettops and budget PCs. HDMI port

Single-digit 3D scores. No Blu-ray. Limited expansion. Crapware. No Wi-Fi

The Acer Aspire X1700-U3700A is a decent PC for the den, home theater, or home office. It's got enough power to be your primary PC and is capable of moderate multimedia tasks.

Product Specifications

The Aspire X1700 series is just one-third the size of a normal PC yet packs a very powerful punch - the Intel Pentium Dual Core processor, integrated an HDMI port and 5.1-channel surround sound - orchestrating big performance in a small package for truly dynamic and enjoyable digital entertainment. A multi-in-one card reader, nine USB 2.0 ports, and loads of storage space further extend the appeal of this small-but-potent PC.
