Acer Aspire AXC-605-UR11

 

The capable, compact, and attractive Acer Aspire AXC-605-UR11 isn't the only budget desktop PC out there, but it is one of the most affordable.

Compact, space-saving design. Attractive front panel dresses up basic construction.

No Wi-Fi. Limited room for upgrades and expansion.

Conclusion If performance isn't your main concern—and for many users, it isn't—then the Acer Aspire AXC-605-UR11 offers a good blend of basic capability, compact size, and an affordable price. The Editors' Choice Gateway DX4885-UR2D offers more memory,...

Great Machine

 

I read that it didn't come with a CD/DVD burning software, not a problem for me though I did have to burn a CD for my dad. I didn't have a problem burning it. May have been that one PC that was bad.

This computer is very good ; Very speedy, and upgrades to Windows 10 with no troubles for me ; I did upgrade RAM to 8 GB instead of the 6 that was already in it, though 6 is enough for what this computer was built for ; Very quiet, and doesn't over...

When the computer arrived and I booted it up, it did start with inverted colours. I'm not sure why, but I installed updates and it came back on perfectly fine. Not too much of a con, but it was indeed an annoyance

Acer Aspire X AXC-605-UB1F

 

Although this computer only has a 220 watt power supply, I added a PNY GT 600 GT 610 1 GB DDR3 graphics card (Newegg's Item #N82E16814133457) to try it out. Since the CPU only uses 54 watts, there was plenty of wattage available to support the graphics...

What a beautiful machine! Lots of power under this little hood. No lag time, instant response, and performs flawlessly

Was a little miffed when the computer arrived with no CD/DVD Burning Software, but going to Best Buy I found Roxio Easy CD and DVD Burning software for only $29.99. Not bad. Still kept me under $300 before tax

A quiet, respectable machine

 

It doesn't come with a monitor, so you'll need to buy one if you don't already have one. The on-board video is not 4K, and I don't know if the computer has enough horsepower to support a 4K video card, so do your homework if you're contemplating using...

I bought this computer to replace my wife's aging machine and it's a perfectly good computer for her. It boots up in about 30 seconds, and has enough power to do anything she would want to do with it. It's small enough to put on your desk, has a...

The chiclet keyboard that comes with it is close to useless; I wish computer manufacturers would stop making these things. Plan on chucking the keyboard and purchasing a real keyboard unless you're really comfortable with Mac or laptop keyboards. The...

wonderful little pc

 

If you need it for basic internet and computer use, this is great value for the money. And if you need to upgrade it a bit it is easy. I would also suggest buying a second 4g stick of ram with it to boost it to 8.

Small, quiet, cheap, decently powerful processor for the price, and room for a small amount of upgrades like a low pro. video card and 16g of ram ; All around its a wonderful little pc, and its on sale

To fit most video cards would require some modification to the case due to the pci express slot being so close to the top. But I know hardcore gaming is not what this was meant for and the on board graphics would be fine for normal use ; Power supply...

Acer Desktop AXC-605-UR11

 

As stated before I highly recommend adding 4 GB Ram to this system. With the extra Ram it performs very well and I would highly recommend this system.

This unit has a small footprint with a lot of power for it size. This unit was purchased to run web based applications and does the job very well. Added 4 GB Ram to speed the system up and I highly recommend doing this. Also run MS Office products such...

DUD

 

It's on sale for a reason, it is a piece of junk.

None, it was DOA

Because I didn't have time to set it up in the 30 day window from purchase, I am stuck with this piece of cr*p
