Acer has had a good run with its 23-inch screen all in one desktop computers. SomE desktop PC makers have used all-in-one desktops as place holders in the performance pc market , Acer has two different product lines, the Z1, which is performance oriented and Veritron, which is the type of computer often found on receptionist’s desks.
Supplied to me by Acer for the purposes of this review was the Acer Veriton AU5-620-UR51, with Windows 10. The configuration I tested included a 23-inch touch screen, 8GB of DDR3 memory, a 1TB hard disk drive, an optical drive, all driven by an Intel 4210n I5 processor, plus an Intel graphics controller.
One of the many things I like about this computer is it out of the box experience. I took me less than five minutes to pull this computer out of its box and bring it up on my wireless. By comparison, set up time on several 27-inch screen all-in ones I've tested has been about 10 minutes.
Right up front, I need to make it clear i feel Acer should scrap the keyboard that ships with this machine and replace it with one that has better key spacing. Three times now I have managed to kick myself off a website in the middle of a transaction by accidentally hitting one or more keys
I’ve tested this in my garage And my home offic eand found it;s a good fit for basic computing tasks, although the performance on this machine is noticeably slower than other all-in-ones with the same, or equivalent, processors.
The Veriton AU5-620-UR51 is a great general office desktop that’s easily adjusted to fit the needs of individual users, but it desperately needs a new keyboard. This all-in one is a solid yeoman and will meet the needs of almost everyone that uses an all-in-one desktop and has a retail price of $649.99.--i
