Acer - Aspire X5900


In appearance the Acer Aspire X5900 looks like a regular tower PC but what the photos don't reveal is its tiny size. The tower stands 265mm tall and is 372mm deep and 100mm wide, which works ...

Acer has packed a full Core i5 PC into a tiny tower system. The absence of a Blu-ray drive means it is not ideally suited to be a Media Centre PC but it will fit snugly into your living room or home office.

Acer Aspire X5900


Review Acer classifies its Aspire X5900 as a prestige PC and I have to confess that I was bowled over by the looks of this sleek micro-tower. The power button is brightly lit with a white LED, while the hard drive activity light is positioned on the...

The X5900 is a tiny tower that packs a 3.2GHz Intel Core i5-650 [2] punch along with reasonable graphics. For everyday duties it is fine and offers decent value. ®

23" Screen. Good Processor, Easy to Use.

Low Integrated Graphic Card. No point to add external card, even GT 220, as it recommended on acer website, as it overheats and causes PC to Shut down (Not enough room for card to cool down). Not Recommended for gaming. Overall Windows 7 Performance...

Computer is very quiet. Main unit is very small. Wireless keyboard works faultlessly.

Wireless mouse not as reliable as the keyboard. Acer software is quite naff. Providing trial software is of (next to), no uses.

Acer Aspire X5900


Fantastic value for such a high-end spec! The CPU unit is very compact (about a third of the size of my old AT case), very quiet, very stylish, lot's of USB and other ports, and incredibly fast booting up (less than 30 secs for Windows 7). The wireless...

Very basic setup guide for the non-techie...... perhaps that's how people make money on their 0870 help lines???? The disc is partitioned 50 / 50. I'm ok with that but how many non-techie people would know that. The CPU unit case is security sealed so...

Ecellent value for money,simple but functional, nice design, uses little space and super quiet, did not expect such fast and quiet machine for this value plus you get very good quality 20" monitor.

Own it only for a month-none so far.
