Review

Acer Aspire C27-962-UR11 (Amazon Affiliate Link)

The ACER Aspire C27 is a super thin, light weight, edge to edge all in one with powerful internals and a minimalist aesthetic.

Our review unit had:

  • 12GB DDR4 RAM
  • 512GB NVMe Drive (upgradable)
  • Intel i5 10th Generation
  • GeForce MX130 2GB

Price is $850 as configured.

Features

It’s a fast computer with Intel Optane support and a lot of horsepower under the hood. GeForce MX130 graphics card makes this thing a capable computer for both medium gaming as well as video editing. The catch? No USB-C support. A glaring misstep from ACER, they should have included a USB-C port on a computer of this caliber. It’s equipped with an engine useful for video and RAW photo editing so you’d think a USB C would be an obvious choice for those needing to expand storage or use an external scratch disk.

Comes with a built in webcam which is adequate but nothing to write home about, and the speakers are in the same boat.

Display

It’s a 27″ Edge to Edge LED Full High Definition Non-Touch Screen. No touchscreen doesn’t bother me, but I wish it had a higher resolution display. FHD is beginning to look outdated in 27″ computers, and considering Apple has been shipping with 5K screens for years now (albeit more expensive computers). That said it’s a good panel with deep blacks and cool whites and not a lot of backlight washing.

Input / Output

  • Power Jack
  • Gigabit Ethernet
  • HDMI
  • 2x USB 2
  • 2x USB 3 SS
  • 1x Mic
  • 1x Headphone Jack

Who is it for?

Those looking for a big screen and lots of horsepower. Photoshop editors will enjoy. Those needing an economically priced AIO who need power but want to break the bank.

Who is it not for?

Heavy 4K Editors, Gamers.

Do I recommend?

It’s a good computer albeit a couple of quirks I wish ACER addressed. I like the machine, its well built, upgradable, and should prove a powerful and reliable ally to your computing needs.
