A Gifted Entertainment Desktop
Before we dive into the guts of this budget-friendly PC, letâ€™s take a look at it from the outside. The microtower’s glossy front panel has two 3.5-inch drive bays and a 9-in-1 media card reader located behind a transparent door. Four USB ports are placed on the top of the computer casing for easy access (as they should be) along with the microphone and headphone jacks. There’s also four other USB ports on the back of the case. Another BIG advantage: An HDMI port, VGA-out, and a FireWire port are also located on the back of the PC. Four more 3.5-inch internal drive bays can be found inside the unit. This means that if you need more drives, they can still be accommodated.
Running on the WindowsÂ® Vistaâ„¢ Home Premium operating system, the Acer Aspire M5100 Desktop PC has all the prerequisites for 64-bit processing. Thanks to the AMD Phenom 9500, the Acer Aspire M5100 Desktop PC can easily run several simultaneous multi-threaded applications, pushing through the most demanding processing loads. If you’re looking for a computer specifically designed for advanced multitasking, intricate visual design, and visually stunning digital media and entertainment, this PC is for you.
One of the first to use four cores all sharing a Level 3 cache, the AMD Phenom 9500 processor works by pumping out one large chunk of data to a single core, or sending smaller chunks in its four processors. It also boasts of having “true” quad-core design that handles data efficiently. All four cores are laid out on a single die, and all of them use 2MB of L3 cache. The unified L3 cache contributes to an amazingly rapid system response and phenomenal system performance.
This powerhouse quad-core has Coolâ€˜nâ€™Quietâ„¢ 2.0 technology to reduce heat and noise during demanding operation. Working along with this technology are HyperTransport, which works by increasing the communication speed between components for a computer performance thatâ€™s fast and reliable, and Enhanced Virus Protection which provides security against viruses, worms, and Trojan horses that abound even online.
Additionally, the Acer Aspire M5100 Desktop PC comes with a DVDÂ±RW/-RAM Dual Layer drive. An ATI Radeonâ„¢ HD2400 takes care of graphics, video, and direct digital video connectivity (Read: That uber-handy HDMI Port we mentioned earlier) that makes high quality entertainment available on your PC. It comes with a multimedia keyboard for easy one-touch access to your Internet shortcuts, playback control, volume control (and a sleep button. Hey, we’ve all got to rest). This package also includes an optical mouse and speakers. If you’re looking to make your hard-earned cash go as far as possible, you’ve found the PC you’ve been looking for: The Acer Aspire M5100 AMD Desktop PC.
