Price, Acer name, HDMI, works flawlessly
Solid machine, boots quickly, no issues when operating it. Price was definitely right when purchased
Price, easy setup
Windows 8, low RAM
Lots of garbage installed on it and takes a while to get said garbage off of it. But it still manages to pull even more garbage on it if you don't get every bit of garbage off
Garbage meaning useless, unnecessary, stupid, drags your computer type programs. Honestly, I don't even know whey they are pre-installed
The case also had a dent in it, which my guess is from whatever postal service delivered it. But it's more cosmetic than anything and causes no issues
The lack of USB ports can be a pain in the backside, but since this machine is for my parents, it's not that big of an issue
