Acer Aspire C 27 All-in-One Desktop (C27-962-EB11)

Acer Aspire C 27 All-in-One Desktop (C27-962-EB11)

This space-saving PC is a tempting choice for small or public spaces and it could be just the ticket for homework, productivity and even more.

Documentation's a bit scarce as far as maintenance and upgrades are concerned, but there are options. The process tends to be a bit trickier in a compact system like this so it's not the best candidate for a first DIY project.

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.

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+
