Acer Aspire XC Desktop PC (XC-875-EB11)

Acer Aspire XC Desktop PC (XC-875-EB11)

This desktop PC is a compelling choice for homework, web search and more.

There are definitely a few upgrade options available down the road. Still, without documentation, the process will go much smoother if you already have some experience with this sort of thing. I wouldn't aim for gaming greatness here, but faster loading speeds and additional storage spaces are realistic projects.

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, you would need a webcam or, for best results, a headset and microphone.$40+

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+

Assuming you are starting over fresh, you can expect to spend $320 on accessories, for a total cost of $1020.
