Being an all in one desktop everything is inside the monitor and it only has the power cord- no other tangled cables on your desk as it comes with a wireless keyboard and mouse. Matte silver finish Acer AZ3-715 has a slim chassis with a modern design, would look great on any desktop in your living room or student room, weighs 23.2 pounds and measures 23.34 x 1.42 x 18.45 inches- is 1.4 inch thick and has a small footprint, screen has an ergonomic design and is tiltable between 5 and 25 degrees. Connectivity options include the 8X DVD SuperMulti Double-Layer Optical Drive, fast 802.11ac wireless with large coverage, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet, 4 x USB 3.0 ports (two rear and two on the side), a USB 2.0 port (rear), 2 x HDMI-in ports- most frequently used ports are on the side for convenience. Audio quality is good in theory and all right in practice with the Acer True Harmony High-Performance Sound System and Dolby-optimized surround sound system with wide range bass and less audio distortion. It has an integrated FHD webcam with 1080p resolution for great live Skype chats- very clear image and great still snapshots.
1024GB or 1TB mechanical drive is plenty of storage for anyone for whatever files they’d like to save but the speed is only 5400rpm, which is fine but not nearly as fast as an SSD and although SSD is not included on this model, with prices coming down you can certainly consider replacing the HDD with an SSD. It is easy to set up in less than ten minutes and use and with the powerful 6th generation Intel i5 and 8GB memory it has a lot of power for both your daily and more demanding tasks (with everything inside the screen, probably not as upgradeable as the normal desktops but there won’t be any need), integrated security functions, sharp text and display with vivid visuals and with Acer BluelightSheld technology that helps reduce strain on your eyes and fatigue but there is a bit of screen glare, good sound, solid ergonomic keyboard, clean and uncluttered look and very reasonable price. It is a great looking and powerful computer that is good for everything except for heavy games and is offered with a long 2 years warranty for parts and labor and great customer and technical support (majority of computers come with 1 year warranty).
