Acer AZS600G-UW10

by fmitchelltx / May 25, 2013 1:34 PM PDT

I am thinking of purchasing an Acer AZS600G-UW10. I need a new computer for home business and personal. I am thinking an All In One since I would need to get a new monitor as well. I am not seeing many reviews on this one yet. I am looking for a touch screen, Windows 8 computer. I am running XP on my current computers, yes, they have a few years on them but still work okay. I have a 2 TB external hard drive that I will connect to a new computer. Is Windows 8 more trouble than it is worth? What about this Acer computer? Is it okay to buy a refurbished one or should I look at new ones only. There is about a $100 price difference for a new vs.refurbished. The refurbished has a 90 day warranty. If not this computer, what do you recommend in the $500 - $600 range? Any help will be greatly appreciated.

There is a learning curve for Windows 8

but that's true when using a new operating system. I wouldn't buy refurbished computer with only a 90 day warranty for a $100.00 savings.

Be advised, your programs may not be compatible with Windows 8. Download Windows 8 upgrade assistant, run it and see what's compatible and what's not. It's designed to show if the computer can be upgraded but you can use it to see what is compatible or not before buying a new computer

Touch screen?

Is this model a touch screen? I see some places that it is and others that it is not.

Light bulbs you shouldn't buy

There are plenty of dimmable LED light bulbs, but make sure you don't buy the ones that flicker when you dial them down.
