Acer Aspire AX1301-B1812

 

The Acer Aspire AX1301-B1812 tries its hardest to deliver a mix of good speed and appealing attributes, and it comes with a 20-inch widescreen display. Overall, however, the package stumbles in comparison with systems that are better configured and...

Above-average storage ; Strong connectivity for a budget PC

Lacks room for additional internal devices

The AX1301-B1812 delivers a lot, but whether it's a good value depends on how much you like the bundled display.

Acer Aspire X1301-B1812

 

If you are shopping for a value-priced PC in a small form factor, but don't want to buy a nettop your options are limited. Nettops have a great compact form factor, but suffers when it comes to performance, and while cheaper desktops will give you the...

Small form factor. Plenty of ports. Inexpensive. Monitor bundled with PC

Lackluster performance. Very limited expandability

The Acer Aspire X1301-B1812 is an inexpensive, small form factor PC that might make a good second PC if you can accept its limitations.

The Acer Aspire AX1301-B1812 has a mix of speed and other attributes, and includes a 20-inch widescreen display. The package has stats comparable with systems that are better configured and priced more competitively. Acer has priced it to be a decent...

Above-average storage power ; Strong connectivity for its price ; Multi format card reader

No room for additional internal devices ; Decent monitor, but some color issues

The Acer Aspire AX1301-B1812 has a decent combination of performance and connectivity, but lacks in the capacity department. When you purchase a PC, are you more likely to use it for a year and then buy a new one, or will you want to upgrade it in the...

Acer Aspire AX1301-B1812 Review and Ratings

 

This Aspire is a small, stylish-looking budget PC with decent performance for day-to-day tasks. It's well-suited for use as a second PC.

Compact, stylish design ; Decent performance for the price ; Many external connectors

Very limited internal expansion ; No DVI connector ; Power button is difficult to press

Acer Aspire X1301 Quad Core Desktop PC

 

Neat, easy to set up, good sized screen for space (small)

Still had photos on it from previous owner (refurbished model) and emails still coming into mail box.

Acer X1301/425

 

Lots of space and power

No slot to install a floppy disc unit (we still need them!). Windows 7 is a bit of a pain when connecting to XP machines, but OK.

Acer X1301/425

 

Price was good value for money and the product was a specific target purchase for me anyway.

It is an "end of line" model and manufactured nearly 12 months ago but overall met the computing needs required.
