Acer Aspire AM3970-U5022 Desktop PC Review

Budget computers have been out in the market in the recent years. Despite the low prices, these computers still feature basic computer tools plus additional tools that enhance computing experience. Budget computers aim to make quality computers available to buyers who do not have that much in their pockets. For a quality budget computer, users can go for Acer Aspire AM3970-U5022 Desktop PC.

Aspire AM3970-U5022 is developed by Acer, one of the leading brands in Computer technology. For more than thirty years since its establishment in 1976, Acer has able to maintain an excellent performance, ranking number two in the worldwide statistics. The company’s flexibility and commitment to meet the needs of their market, give way to the development of quality budget computers like Aspire AM3970-U5022.

Acer Aspire AM3970-U5022 Desktop PC is priced at $ 500.00. Its price is by far one of the most affordable prices for a quality computer; good news to many prospective buyers. It comes in a classic black case with measurements of 14.9" in Height, 7.1" in Width, and 15.8" in Depth. Aspire AM3970-U5022 is installed with Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium, Intel Core i3-2100 CPU, and 6 gigabytes of DDR3-1333 memory. Its best offer is its 3.1GHz Sandy Bridge chip feature; this actually highlights the power of this budget computer. In addition to this, Aspire AM3970-U5022 has DVD burner, 12 USB ports, VGA and HDMI connection.

There are two key selling points for Aspire AM3970-U5022. First is its price which most prospective buyers are initially considering. Second is 3.1GHz Sandy Bridge chip. Combine these two key selling points and this computer will be a hit; just imagine getting a Sandy Bridge-powered computer for just $ 500.00. In addition to this, it has a WIFI feature that most budget computers lack, even the pricey ones often negate this feature. The inclusion of this feature is very practical since WIFI has been widely used by many PC users today. It also has more than enough ports for storage and connectivity.

However, Aspire AM3970-U5022 is far from being the perfect budget computer in the market. When it comes to entertainment, this computer might not keep up. Its graphical capacity is rather low to be able to deliver high resolution visuals. In short, gaming enthusiasts who are looking for a computer that can give them their ultimate high with such a low price should give this computer a second thought. Aspire AM3970-U5022 is also not as upgrade-friendly as other budget computers given that there are limited PCI slots for upgrade. At the same time, USB 3.0, Firewire, eSATA, multiformat card reader and another entertainment feature like Blu-ray player are not made available to this budget computer which is quite odd since these are included to most desktop computers in the market today.

Acer Aspire AM3970-U5022 Desktop PC may seem like a practical choice for prospect buyers. With as low as $ 500.00, buyers can get a computer that has the power of Sandy Bridge, with the guaranteed quality of the Acer brand. However, performance wise, this budget computer may fall short especially when it comes to providing maximum entertainment experience.
