Acer Nitro 50 Gaming Desktop Computer (N50-610-ES11)

Acer Nitro 50 Gaming Desktop Computer (N50-610-ES11)

This Desktop PC pack a bit of extra graphical muscle, which could come in handy to handle creative projects and even quite a few games. Storage is a bit slower than I'd like, and it might take a bit longer to get things started, but otherwise, it's a fairly capable system for the price.

Data is sadly a bit spotty for this system, and I'm missing a few details. Maintenance instructions are sadly among the missing, but with a bit of experience, upgrades are definitely possible.

Other Considerations

Here are a few things about this Stationary Computer which could come as a surprise. For each point, you will find how to fix it (if it's an issue) and how much to budget for it. Not every point below will be a concern, but hopefully, we can keep your surprises to a minimum.

Speakerless. This Stationary Computer needs external speakers to play sounds. Your options are to hook it up to a TV or a monitor with built-in speakers, use external speakers or a headset.$30+

No Camera or Microphone. If your plans include skyping with family members or playing with your friends online, you would need a webcam or, for best results, a headset and microphone.$40+

No Headphone Jack. Without a headphone jack, you will need a (more expensive) bluetooth headset to listen music privately. It also won't be possible to connect to traditional speakers or sound systems without a bluetooth feature.$50+

Screenless. If you don't already have a monitor from your last computer, you could connect this Stationary Computer to a TV or get a new monitor.$120+

No Optical Drive. If you still use CDs, DVDs, or Blu-Ray disks on a regular basis, you will need an external drive to read them with this Stationary Computer.$30+

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $320 on accessories, for a total cost of $1420.
