Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I love the size and appearance of this computer, it just sits nicely on my desk. The keyboard tucks away underneath the monitor, its just so neat!
Bad points:
Not really a bad point but I wish it had slightly more depth, I find the picture is a little bit "squashed.

Score 5.0/10
Good points:
Sucks you in with reasonable price tag.
Bad points:
Sucks you in with reasonable price tag, however, I cannot help but think I should have used that money to put toward another machine with higher specs, probably costing more money, but ultimately being a better purchase. The machine is extremely slow, making it a hinderance for pretty much any use of a computer in general. I use mine generally for word processing/research/internet usage etc as I student probably would, however, it tends to struggle at times to process even the simplest surfing of the web. Additionally, if you use your computer to listen to a lot of music, as I do, you will be disappointed again, as the audio on this machine is also fairly poor. If you like to play games and stream videos, then don't even bother looking at this machine.
If you do decide to go for this machine (as for some it will serve their basic needs), then I hope your mouse works upon arrival, as that was another problem with mine. But, these things happen, right? Just report it and it will be replaced, right? I would have been happy if this had been the case, however, I heard nothing back after my reporting of the non-responsive mouse.
It is my first dealings with ACER, and I certainly won't use them again.

Andrew, Llanelli, South Wales

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Nice and quiet, has a wonderfully small footprint in the office, neatly packaged. All round it is impressive looking and provokes comments from visitors.
Bad points:
Doesn't deliver the speed of operating when doing excel or photograph work. A little slow to boot up. The USB connections could be better placed maybe under the machine rather than at the side. Keyboard and mouse should be wireless and it would then be a super tidy package for the busy office. (I hate wires everywhere).
