10 Reasons For
Acer few processor core PCs have good ratings on average and across all PCs Acer is one of the better rated brands.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 32-bit|64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on few processor core PCs that have been available for a similar time to it.
Fairly Big Hard Drive Capacity
The smallest hard drive capacity of few processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Aspire XC-705 is 250GB and the biggest is 2TB. The Aspire XC-705 has a fairly big hard drive capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that were released one year ago.
There are a number of alternative 1TB hard drive capacity desktop computers currently available which you might also want to look at including cheaper personal computers such as the Acer Revo One RL85 (£249.99).
If this computer hard drive capacity is too small for you then you might also want to consider the Acer Revo One RL85 (£259.00) (2TB) which also has a higher rating.
Quite Big Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of PCs that came out more than a year ago is 550GB, and the total storage capacity range from 8GB to 3TB. With a total storage capacity of 1,000 gigabyte, the Aspire XC-705 has one of the bigger total storage capacity amongst comparable spec computers of this age.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other 1TB total storage capacity desktop computers currently available including the HP Pavilion Mini 300 (£274.98), or the Acer Revo One RL85 (£249.99) which is cheaper.
Computers with a bigger total storage capacity that might also be worth looking at include the Acer Revo One RL85 (£259.00) (2TB) which is also higher rated.
3 PCI Express Slots Version
This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is typical of many computers of a comparable age and spec to it.
L3 Processor Cache Level
This personal computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most commonly found processor cache level on few processor core PCs that came out around the same time as it.

8 Reasons Against
Only Two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
The Aspire XC-705 is a two USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A port desktop computer.
Only HDD Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is HDD, which is the most commonly found storage medium on similar spec PCs that have been around for a comparable time to it. A Hard Disk Drive (HDD) is the traditional storage method for computers. A HDD stores the information on magnetic disks. HDD drives are cheap, but they are slower than Flash and SSD bases storage systems.
If you are looking for a PC with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Acer Chromebox CXI (£270.57) (SSD and cheaper), or the HP Chromebox (£240.01) (SSD and cheaper).
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 1,024 megabyte, the Aspire XC-705 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Aspire XC-705. The discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs that are a similar age to the Aspire XC-705 range from 280MB to 2.1GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 1.6GB.
Only Supports One Compatible Memory Card
The number of compatible memory card supported by the Aspire XC-705 is more than most PCs of this type and age. This Acer desktop computer supports an SD compatible memory card, which is the most frequently supported compatible memory card supported by computers that were launched more than a year ago.

Very Small Maximum On-Board Graphics Adapter Memory
The Aspire XC-705 has one of the smaller maximum on-board graphics adapter memories (only 1.024 gigabytes) amongst comparable spec PCs of this age. The smallest maximum on-board graphics adapter memory of few processor core PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Aspire XC-705 is 1GB and the biggest is 16GB.
Only One PCI Express X1 Slot
The Acer Aspire XC-705 is a one PCI Express x1 slot personal computer.
The lightest few processor core personal computer that has been around for more than a year is 140g heavy and the heaviest is 16kg. At 8.5 kilograms, the Aspire XC-705 is fairly heavy compared to most of the other few processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the Aspire XC-705.
