Acer Aspire Z3

 

The Acer Aspire Z3 is a family-friendly, portable all-in-one with a 21-inch, 1080p touch screen and booming speakers, but we'd prefer a faster CPU.

Full HD display with wide viewing angles; Good wireless keyboard and mouse; HDMI-in port lets you connect gaming console

Dimmer screen than competitors; Below-average performance; Somewhat heavy

With a full HD display, loud speakers and a comfortable keyboard and mouse, the $799 Aspire Z3 is a solid multimedia system for families who don't want to spend too much for a touch-based all-in-one. And while you don't get very long battery life with...

Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR22 review: An all-in-one with a sleek look and slow performance

 

The Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR22 may look sleek, slim and streamlined, but it's only skin deep—it lagged far behind in our benchmarks.

Comfortable mouse and keyboard ; Slim, space-saving design ; Quick startup

Weak performance ; Oversaturated display ; Poor price/performance ratio

Acer's Aspire Z3-605-UR22 is an attractive machine, but its performance leaves us wanting.

Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23

 

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 has a lot of intelligent features we'd like to see on most if not all all-in-one desktop PCs in the future.

Front-mounted I/O ports. 10-point touch screen. HDMI-in. Spacious hard drive

No Blu-ray. Some added software/bloatware. Wonky gesture control

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 ($999.99 list) is a refined, yet simple version of the all-in-one desktop PC that has evolved over the past few years. It has most of the features we look for in a modern all-in-one PC, including a moderate price. It's a...

Gorgeous 1080p display, Quiet operation, Audio output from Harman Kardon speakers impresses

Drab design, ULV processor holds back performance

If the Z3 offered a price incentive against similarly configured all-in-ones, we might recommend it for budget shoppers looking for a basic, space-saving system for dorm rooms or cramped home offices. As it stands, we prefer Acer's better-looking...

Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23

 

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 is a solid all-in-one desktop PC that's great for playing games and watching movies.

It comes with an HDMI-in connection that allows you to use the PC in a variety of ways, even as just an extra monitor

It doesn't have that many USB ports, so you can't connect that many devices to your PC at once

The Acer Aspire AZ3-605-UR23 is a good all-in-one desktop that has plenty of space to store your movie collections and music.

Acer Aspire Z3 review

 

This all-in-one PC is built for looks, not power

Gorgeous HD touchscreen ; Loaded with features ; Affordable price point

Seriously underpowered ; Lots of screen glare ; HDMI-in works unreliably

Scores in depth If Windows 8 deserves credit for anything positive, it's that the operating system spurred an era of touchscreen desktops. With that comes the challenge of producing a touchscreen system with a strong spec sheet and features that...

Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR22: An all-in-one with a sleek look and slow performance

 

If you like HP's picture frame design, but you'd prefer something a bit more polished, the Acer Aspire Z3-605-UR22 ($900 as of 8/29/13) is another AIO with a space-saving chassis. The Z3-605 sports an Intel i3-3227U processor; 4GB of DDR3/1600 RAM; and...

Good for the Price

 

After the initial purchase we have purchased three more for ancillary positions in our company. Overall very satisfied.

This is a good computer for the price. Good screen resolution. Good speed. Nice package. Don't expect i7 speeds but for most tasks it is a good machine. We ordered these to replace some aging desktops and we are not disappointed. They run office type...

I wish this came with wireless keyboard and mouse. This technology is commonplace now
