[Amazon.ca] Acer Aspire Desktop: I5-10400, 12GB, 512GB NVMe, (2x) HDMI -- $597.08 (Prime)
- Deal Link:
It's a mean little machine for the price. Not a terrible value overall.
Let's check it out.
10th Generation Intel Core i5-10400 6-Core Processor (Up to 4.3GHz)
12GB 2666MHz DDR4 Memory (2x DIMM Slots -- Up to 64GB RAM)
512GB NVMe M.2 SSD
8X DVD-Writer Double-Layer Drive (DVD-RW)
Windows 10 Home (USB Keyboard and Mouse Included)
WiFi 6 // Bluetooth 5
1x - USB 3.2 Type C Gen 1 port (up to 5 Gbps) (Front)
5x - USB 3.2 Gen 1 Ports (1 Front and 4 Rear)
2x - USB 2.0 Ports (Rear)
2x - HDMI Ports
PassMark Score: 12,416
The above score is very solid, and places it competitively against alternative refurbished machines with much less computing power for close to the same price (whereas this unit is new). In our Graphics Card starved market, it comes with (2x) HDMI out ports. Additional outputs are possible with a cheap USB 3.0 to HDMI adapter or a PCIe Card (Graphics Card). It also includes WiFi 6, which is a nice little bonus, sometimes not included on towers for whatever reason.
This machine was $1,000 CAD in early February before falling to under $600 CAD. It's only $13 more than the lower spec'ed i3 variant desktop.
P.S. Here's a version with an HDD and a 500W PSU.
