Acer Veriton VM460-UD2180C Value Desktop PC


Basic system boasts more expansion room than most value PCs, but isn't as fully loaded as competing models that cost less.

Bundled 22-inch monitor, Lots of free expansion bays

1GB RAM is less than competing PCs, Poor integrated graphics

The hum of the hard drive is a noticeable compared to a very quiet HP machine I also use. The case is adequate but a touch lightweight and can resonate a bit. Windows 7 has problems locking on to my Netgear wireless network - I see many other people...
