Acer Aspire M3870

 

I am no expert in these matters but find it very fast, quiet and have had no negative experiences. Windows 7 is also a significant improvement from XP that I ran on my last computer.

None to date.

Acer Aspire M3870

 

Very fast, very large disc. Windows 7 is nice to use. Loads of memory. Good for parental control reasons. Graphics card has HDMI so a TV can be used as well as a monitor. Looks nice. Quiet in use.

non-USB mouse/keyboard supplied, cheap feel to them but both serviceable. Difficult to access internals of main unit for drive addition.
