Great Computer easy to update

 

"Easy to use and quick setup. Fast web search with no problems whatsoever. Updated the computer with another graphics card Geforce gtx1050ti 4gb which I already had and also 8gb ram. It is doing everything what I wanted to do. Very pleased"

Very good spec PC and very good VFM ! (I originally thought that I was buying a refurbed item, but it was of course brand new and came with blue-tooth keyboard and mouse !)

All good thanks

This adaptor only worked for two days so we are very disappointed with it and need to replace it .

Consumer review (argos.co.uk)

Good value but some minor niggles

 

Good value as a basic PC. However if you are planning on doing a lot of gaming you might do better going for a PC with a graphics card and more powerful processor. Only three 'fast' USB 3 ports, only one of which is at the rear of the PC Rather flimsy...

ACER Aspire TC-780 Desktop PC

 

Powerful, fast and quiet in equal measure. I can have Adobe PS, Bridge, iTunes and Chrome running simultaneously without any impact on its processing power. And as for Windows 10 - I love it. As a devotee of Windows 7, I never thought I'd say that....

No set up poster accompanied the PC. There are two HDMI ports at the back that are blocked and therefore unusable. There is another port at the back which I'm unable to identify - thanks to the absence of a set up poster.
