Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A review: Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A


Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A

Best performance in its price category; decent budget gaming PC.

Clunky exterior you'll want to hide under a desk.

Acer's Aspire M5800-U5802A could use some visual polish, but get past its appearance and you'll find a fast, affordable computer that will handle any task you care to throw at it. It's even a decent low-end gaming box. We'd only recommend against this...

Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A and eMachines EZ1601-01 Nettop


This is the second part of a two-part series discussing three different desktop computers: the Dell Studio XPS 435, Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A, and eMachines EZ1601-01 Nettop. Let's pick up where we left off, discussing the features of the Acer Aspire...

Expert review by : Matt Safford (

Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A


With its powerful Core 2 Quad processor and 8GB of DDR3 RAM, the Acer Aspire M5800-U5802A is a powerful, good-looking all-around PC with a very reasonable price.

Excellent performance for the price; daring design; eminently upgradeable

A fair amount of bloatware; finicky optical drive eject button; no Blu-ray drive

There are definitely more powerful systems available, particularly those with Intel's unmatched Core i7 processors. But those systems cost several hundred dollars more, and for users other than professional video editors or extreme gamers, they don't...

Acer M5800 Q8200 4GB 640GB with 20" Monitor


Good value system. Decent bright monitor (Acer P205H), and the geforce G210 graphics card can handle most games perfectly well. Fan noise is nearly imperceptible, probably due to the CPU running so cool. Occasionally notice hard drive when writing to...

Not the smallest or lightest box. But who cares, it's under the desk :)
