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
