The Acer Aspire ATC-605-UB11 budget desktop has enough features to keep basic PC users satisfied, throws in Wi-Fi capability, and offers enough expansion room for future upgrades...

PC Mag

Nice price
8GB of memory
5GHz Wi-Fi support
Good connectivity
Solid performance numbers
Lots of bloatware
The 300-watt power supply limits upgrades

It is a great deal...

It runs games very well and comes working out of the box
Rather powerful CPU 4-core, 8 thread), memory 16-gb), hard disk space 2T), video card. Should be enough for normal usage
Adequate night vision, good depth, good motion response time with wireless
Easy To Set Up
Easy To Use
Need a better graphics card DD 3 doesn't max out settings
Little bit worried about Toshiba HDD used with average rating of 3 stars. Need to backup important data often
Some audio noise with wireless (but quite good with line connection). Color is OK but not great under house lighting
Windows 8.1 UGH but that won't last too long
Lots of junk to uninstall but this might be as much Wi 8 as Acer
