Neither gets me for quality in the Inspiron or the line you mentioned. In fact the Pentium you noted is so dated that you only find those in models that are for the price and not "quality."
For 300 Euros why not a laptop such as the Asus k55n ds81? It's one my kid picked up for 380USD and he claims it's better than his 1,400USD Asus ROG laptop from 2010.
How do Acer desktops compare to other major brands such as Dell, Novatech and Lenova?
I've had a Dell Dimension 1100 for 8 1/2 years and want to upgrade. As I'm pleased with this computer's performance, I'm tempted to buy a Dell Inspiron 660 [Intel® Pentium® G2020 Processor (2.90GHz, 3MB), RAM 4GB3 DDR3 SDRAM at 1600MHz, 500GB Serial ATA (7.200 Rpm) Hard Drive]. Price £260 (with discount coupon).
However, I came across what seems a brilliant deal on the DABS website, a desktop with superior specifications for just £40 more. The computer is an Acer Aspire X3 (Intel Core i3-3220 (3.3GHz) RAM 6GB Hard Drive 500GB). Price £300.

I'm tempted to go with the Acer because of its superior specs, but, due to lack of Knowledge, feel a little uneasy as to this brand's quality and reliability. Can anyone enlighten me regarding this?
I intend to use my new computer for surfing the web, sending emails and streaming TV.
