Acer XC-603 Tower PC (Intel Pentium J1900 2GHz, 2GB RAM, 500GB HDD, DVDRW, Windows 8.1)

If you’ve been thinking about replacing that trusty old desktop then the Acer XC-603 is an ideal candidate. The basic specifications are impressive at the price – Quad Core Intel Pentium J1900 2GHz Processor, 2GB RAM, 500 GB hard drive, DVDRW/CD drive and Windows 8.1 installed!

But first let´s address the elephant in the room – Windows 8.1. Having grown to accept Windows XP/7 the new “metro” tile style Windows 8 is somewhat of a culture shock for many. Sure, a lot of people have been put off upgrading their machines because of it – but should you be?

One of the biggest complaints has been the loss of the much loved Start button – but with the release of Windows 8.1 a similar function has now been added to the desktop. Sure you´ll still need to adapt a little, but it´s not all doom and gloom.

Sure, not everybody uses a conventional desktop setup as much in the modern laptop/tablet era, but for some it is still a necessity where a bigger screen and permanently set-up peripherals are needed. And with the Acer being a diminutive w37cm x d27cm x h10 it will fit easily onto the smallest desk.

Acer Desktop Rear Ports

And connecting to your existing monitor is no problem, whether it be a modern type with HDMI connector or VGA style connector (often fitted to older big tube CRT monitors). Please note that no monitor is supplied, package contains desktop, UK keyboard and mouse only.

The Acer also has a DVDRW/CD drive which will play conventional CDs/DVDs, and create music/video CDs/DVDs with writable media. Microphone and speaker ports are also supplied to connect your external speakers or headset.

Acer Desktop Front Ports

There´s no skimping on connectivity either with 1 USB 3.0 ports,4 USB 2.0 ports, RJ45 LAN port, and a Card Slot that accepts SD/MMC cards. So there should be no problem connecting your favourite USB mouse or getting the photographs from your SD camera card.

Verdict

The Acer XC-603 Desktop PC covers all the bases, whether you want a multimedia PC to play your HD movies, check your email, surf the web or chat with friends on Skype the Acer provides the power and flexibility to cope with ease – and at a very low price!
