Acer Veriton VN281G-UA425W

 

The Acer Veriton VN281G-UA425W is a compact, quiet nettop for business users. Though it's inexpensive, its processor is painfully slow for anything but the most basic of tasks.

Inexpensive. Compact. Quiet. Built-in 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi.

Slow processor. Videos and Web surfing are jerky. No HDMI, DisplayPort, or DVI.

Great PC, compact size, not 32bit as advertised

 

I needed this PC to run the access control system of a 15 story condo building that had to be run on Win7 Pro 32 bit. It came with 64 bit. We were advised to order it again, and we got the same thing the second time. I now have two PC's that have been...

OS not as advertised

 

Should have been installed as advertised, or at least stated somewhere that they are pre-installed with 64 bit with an option for 32-bit.

Easy to setup, mounts on the back of the users screens, No longer have to have a computer foot print on the floor. I have ordered older versions of these computers in the past couple of years and have had no issues. Wireless works well, with no...

I bought this particular computer because it was advertised as having a 32-bit OS installed. Which isn't a big deal to me, but our programmers are still having some 64 bit issues. So I buy the 32 bit systems to give them more time to work on the 64 bit...

Acer Veriton N281G

 

Small and compact fits neatly on the back of the monitor. Setting up was easy and installed Microsoft office 2010. This unit will be used in a dusty environment. Great value!

Would be good to have recovery disks supplied on CD or stick.

Acer Veriton N281G

 

Compact. On-board wifi Value

Default windows install is 64 bit which is crazy for such a low powered box. To get 32 bit you have to re-install. There should be an option during setup.

Acer Veriton N281G

 

Small form fitted on the back of my existing monitor. Ideal as a home computer where e-mails, internet, and social media is the main use but where video and photography is also needed at a non-professional level.

Windows 7 really needs more RAM, and although the Veriton is upgradeable i would have thought the additional RAM could have been included
