Acer Aspire Z5600-U1352

 

When we last left the Acer Aspire Z5610, this all-in-one system was suffering from the dreaded "really good-but-not-great" designation. General speeds were excellent, but the system's other omissions--including a less-than-appealing 320GB of storage...

Impressive quad-core performance for an AIO ; Beautiful display

No included hi-definition support ; Performance virtually identical to predecessor

Despite a roomier hard-drive and a few extra cores, the Z5600-U1352 does little to stand apart from Acer's preexisting Aspire Z5610 all-in-one.

Acer Aspire Z5600 Review – Multi-touch capable All-in-one PC

 

Windows 7 touchscreen PCs are slowly growing in number, but the all-in-ones we've generally seen have used notebook components rather than desktop ones. That makes for a more compact machine, certainly, but it does mean you miss out on processing...

Like Microsoft’s own Surface Pack of touchscreen games and visual distractions, the Acer apps are a distraction but not a particular reason to buy. Where the AZ5600 does stand out is in how it combines strong performance with lounge-friendly noise...

Acer Aspire 5602WLMi laptop review

 

If you've ever tried buying a notebook from PC World or even Dixons on the high street, then you'll have come across Acer notebooks. True, they aren't the most attractive machines you'll see, being little more than grey boxes for the most part but the...

Powerful, affordable

Poor battery life

It may be a grey box but it’s packed with enough technology to keep the average home user happy for years

Acer Aspire Z5600-GB1 review

 

Acer's Aspire Z5600-GB1 all-in-one touchscreen PC is a genuinely beautiful piece of design. Although its metallic silver colour scheme looks a little science-fiction inspired, it could fit comfortably in any living room. It consumes remarkably little...

This all-in-one touchscreen PC is beautiful to look at and lovingly designed, but you can get more powerful all-in-one computers for a similar price.

Acer Aspire Z5600 All-in-One

 

With a 23-inch multi-touch screen, the Acer Z5600 is showing others how to play the all-in-one game.

With 23" of touch-screen goodness at your disposal and a very decent hardware line-up, we can recommend it wholeheartedly. It costs a reasonable R10 999 from Incredible Connection.

An impressive touchscreen PC at a very attractive price. A fine alternative to the A-Listed Sony.

Despite these irritations, the Acer Z5600 still offers enough quality elsewhere to offer a creditable alternative to the A-Listed Sony. Its touchscreen is responsive and looks great; it boasts a decent range of features; and it looks great to boot. And...

Touchscreen PCs always felt awkward when they were underpinned by Windows Vista, but now that Windows 7 has arrived, we've begun to see these devices come into their own. First out of the blocks was the Sony VAIO VPC-L11S1E, which wowed us with one of...

Not good for gaming or and graphics stuff other than that fine.

Fast CPU

Fast CPU with no fan which overheats very easily. Touch screen sucks when a fly lands on it and it takes about 10 try's to reboot because, something happens with the touch screen and the mouse goes crazy sumtimes
