      Comments about Acer Aspire X3 Intel Core i3-540 3.06 GHz Dual Core Desktop PC:

      I puchased to replace a station on our busienss network in our small Insurance Business. We do own another noteboo kby ACEWR seem to be very efficient and good Desk Top. size is small and fits great under the desk.
      I did nto go for the supper dupper Intell 7 chip because we do nto need it.
      Windowns & Hoem Edition is great but if you need this on a netwrok better get the Windows 7 Professional upgrade.
      BEst Product and a competitive cost!
