Peter, Music & entertainment fan

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to set up. Although it did take me a while to figure out where the mouse and keyboard receiver was.
Bad points:
Comes with Linux instead of windows which wasn't an issue for me as I was I was going to Install my own software. Not the best choice for those that only know how to use windows.

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Small, Looks good.m Plenty of ports, HDMI, decent amount of memory installed and BluRay drive.
Bad points:
Rubbish Linux software. Can read files but not play movies under Linux with BluRay drive. Better value for money if you buy version with Windows 7 included otherwise you have too pay extra to upgrade to Windows 7. Also 7 vesion comes with bluray support form Acers own software. Support from Acer almost non existant.

John, Plymouth Business user

Score 2.0/10
Good points:
Small footprint, looks sleek. is inexpensive
Bad points:
The Blu Ray does not work properly, it works poorly under windows blu Ray 3D does NOT work at all. The drivers that come with the machine are ancient. I have downloaded many drivers but still cannot get the Blu Ray to work. The AMD processor to Grafix tech is not that smooth either. I would recommend that if you go for this product buy the intel version with Nvidia ion tech and DO NOT buy the Blu Ray version.
