Acer Veriton L460


About the size of a hardcover novel, the Acer Veritron L460 is a great option if you want to fit a value PC into a tight space (such as behind a desk, under a table, or in a kiosk). It may be small, but this Acer's case is tightly packed with an Intel...

Compact size ; Good performer

Expansion via USB only ; Pathetic gaming scores

Tiny but powerful, this PC is perfect for small workspaces and kiosks.

Acer Aspire 1810T: A laptop for practically all occasions


With strong performance, great battery life and lots of connections, the Acer Aspire is a good general-purpose laptop, at a good price.

Consumer review by:

Great little (tiny) general purpose machine.


This is a great machine for places where space is a factor like your kitchen, entertainment room, reception areas, exam rooms and computer labs. It has lots of USB ports and both AGP and DVI so it will work with any monitor you have without an adapter...

Ultra small form factor, plenty of power, standard size hard drive, Win XP Pro & Vista, low power consumption, lots of USB ports

Runs a bit warm - thermally controlled fans can't be set manually to a higher speed so the system run a bit warmer than I would like (though NOT hot) I would trade a bit more fan noise for cooler cpu


Consumer review by:

Lots of Problems


Our family has had this model for less than 9 months and we have already had to send it back to the manufacturer for repairs 3 times. Each time, we must pay for the box and packaging. The first time we paid the postage, but the last 2 times, they've...

Big screen, compact hard drive size

Turns itself off

Acer Veriton VL460-ED8400C Core 2 Duo E8400(3.00GHz) 2GB DDR2 160GB Intel GMA 3100 Windows Vista Business (English/French) - Retail


If you want to upgrade the RAM to 4 gigs make sure you use a sodimm (4GB DDR2).

Very fast. Easy to setup. With the proper internet connections (Cat 6) it's wicked. Very compact. Nice DVD loader slot. All you have to do is insert the disc, it doesn't have pop out tray. This way you can place it very close to other things

Video card could be better. Acer customer service takes a long time to get back to you. I think most of the tech reps are towel heads

Acer Awesome


I use this computer at my office location, so I do not use it to watch movies. I have watched some shows on hulu on my lunch and they looked great.

I am using this computer to run my very busy business. It does not miss a beat running spreadsheets, documents and multiple web pages all at the same time


Consumer review by:

Like it.


I bought it for its size and am happy with that. It's much faster than I expected and it works well. I'd buy it again


Consumer review by:

Nice Machine


Sharp looking keyboard.

Small size is a great plus. I was looking for a computer with XP on it. Almost no choices for a power computer with XP installed Nice to be able to select which OS to run. Downgrade to XP was very simple. Speedy box with XP running. Of course, Newegg...

Ditched the bloat of Vista Business. Take advantage of the downgrade to XP Professional offer. The hard drive is a bit noisy in a quiet room

Consumer review by:

A power house in a small package.


I have this unit in my living room hooked up to my LCD screen and surround sound system. It could possibly be used as a HTPC system instead of a business PC. Its small enough to hide in your entertainment center.

Super tiny. This one replaces my 1.6Ghz single core laptop thats been in use for about 3 years now. I couldnt believe how fast this puppy is. I got rid of the Vista Business and installed XP Pro SP3 instead to make sure I was able to run AutoCad 2009...

I did not like the loud noises the 160GB Hitachi Deskstar HDD it came with, so I swapped it out for the WD Caviar 640GB HDD and the system runs near silent all of the time
