Consumer review (newegg.com)

Solid Starter

 

added a PCI-E video card and a bunch more memory, now it is a light gaming machine on a budget. my younger sister uses it to play older games and for college work, so it has been a perfect fit.

Cheap, comes with Vista, all inclusive

single core, low memory

Veriton Super Deal

 

This is a great bargain PC that will make a great web surfing box that I can leave on all the time.

Easy setup. Nice construction. Great case and hardware. Its completely silent in power save mode and wakes up in just a couple of seconds. No fans turning at all when in power save. Nice

Lots of junk software to remove from the base install

Acer Veriton VM261-UC4301P Celeron 430(1.8GHz) 1GB DDR2 80GB SiS Mirage 3 Windows XP Professional - Retail

 

I got this for my parents they use it at least 3 times a day. it replaced their extremely aged, but stable sabre Compaq still running win98.

Has everything you need for a basic computer, with some wiggle room. does Internet, ms office, word, ect with out even slowing down

came loaded with a bunch of software that didn't suite my needs

Acer Veriton VM261-UC4301P Celeron 430(1.8GHz) 1GB DDR2 80GB SiS Mirage 3 Windows XP Professional

 

Slow startup for the first time as it loads bloatware but most know how to get rid of it.

Great deal for the money. Low end machine but low cost

Ships with a BALL MOUSE!!! I didn't even know they made those anymore! As others have said... bloatware. But that helps keep the cost down and you can uninstall it

GOOD

 

just save the c:\driver folder and reload a clean XP Pro retail version. thats quicker than uninstalling all the cr@p-ware...

Great price for the features. Use as biz workstation

BLOATWARE! They pack these things with a TON of garbage

Acer Veriton VM2610-UC4301P

 

Purchased for a quick small business workstation. Nothing but good news from the user. Heavy I-net and Office work with Quickbooks allways running. Just add some more memory and watch the hard drive space.

Great 1GB XP-PRO workstation for the Price. About $ 400 to my Door. Works great for Office, Internet, Quickbooks

Small Hard Drive and Celeron Speed. Don't expect more the the basics from the graphics, but Will get your work done

Nice little system for the money

 

This is a fairly cheap entry level system. It runs smooth and has XP instead of Vista, which is a big bonus in my book. Runs quietly and performs basic needs well

It could use a little more hard drive space, but for the money you are paying yu can always slap an extra drive in. I know I did

NO bargain

 

none

Hard drive lasted 2 days before failing

GOOD

 

Just grab a xp pro sp2 retail cd and do a clean install of windows. Probably quicker than trying to uninstall the cheesy acer programs and apps and other undesired software pre installed on pc.

Great Price. These run very quiet and are pretty good machines. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 is because of the bloatware pre-installed on the pc

Bloatware
