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 Z5600-U1352


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

Consumer review by:



i don't regret buying it.

laptop can take a graphics card ; keyboard seems decently made ; comes with acer power management software, backup restore, and encryption ; able to make restore discs more than once

graphics card has to come from acer, which has not been forthcoming in emails about available options ; drive is partioned into two fat32 43/44gb sections ; also, this laptop is a bit bigger than other 15.4 notebooks. had to shop around to find a bag...

Very Impressed


If any of you shop like me, this will help. While in my search for a laptop, i looked at many and the thing i was worried about was a slow processor. I searched many online reviews of processors hoping to find a match and looking for benchmark results....

This thing is fast, and I mean fast. The keyboard is nice, great display and excellent overall specs for the price. Also the battery actually lasts a lil bit longer than they say it does


Consumer review by:

Good Stuff! ^^


I like the feel and layout of the keyboard. I also like the screen. It is super clear. The battery life is what it is! When it says 4-5 hours... it really is. I love that!

I bought this laptop to script for Ragnarok Online, C++, and Visual Basic. Just to take to school and do so. I love it, it can do way more than that. I run local test servers on it. When you run the processor and everything stock on as high as it will...

None that I have found

This computer is Amazing ”


I just got this computer which sort of goes along with a vista version of control panel. There are several new items added on the computer already. I like the post-it notes the best. Handy gadget that remembers things for me on the screen.
