Acer has always been a reputable player for their light weight and quick computers. They also strive to give you the best deal, and the Acer Veriton X275 is certainly no exception. On this PC they don't have the best processor, but who does now days? They always are coming out with a new one in another month and jack up the price. This is why Acer can afford to give you this premium computer at a lower price than you would pay just to go one more notch up. I wouldn't recommend it for someone who is going to be using it for a super gaming computer due to the bit lower processor. However it does have 2gb of RAM which makes it pretty good. So if you just need a reliable computer for your office to sort your documents and have everything running nicely on your 160 GB hard drive than get this computer. It also has Windows 7 and XP dual running so you will not be let down. With your DVD drive you don't have to look cheap. This is a nice computer and will be well worth the price.
