On the lookout for a nice workhorse PC that’s easy on the pocketbook? Amazon is currently selling the Acer Aspire desktop with a Core i5 Skylake CPU, loads of memory, and a beefy hard drive at a whopping 30% discount.
In terms of specs, this model features a sixth generation quad-core 2.7GHz Intel Core i5-6400 CPU, integrated Intel HD Graphics 530, 8GB of DDR3 RAM (1600MHz), a 2TB 5400RPM hard drive, a DVD drive, Bluetooth 4.0, and 802.11b/g/n/ac WiFi support.
Connectivity wise, it features gigabit ethernet, an SD card reader, two USB 2.0 ports, four USB 3.0 ports, and two HDMI 1.4 ports. It also comes with a wired keyboard and mouse, so all you’ll need to get started properly is a separate display. And if you need VGA or DVI support for your existing monitor, you can find some adaptors on Amazon for ten bucks or less.
Windows 10 Home (64-bit) is included by default, so the newest features out of Redmond will be yours to use as you see fit. Xbox One local streaming is available for convenient gaming, the Cortana personal assistant is built-in for quick searches, and Edge is the best web browser that Microsoft has ever made.
Usually, this configuration goes for about $550 at retail, but Amazon is currently offering a pretty sweet deal. You can save $165.58 when you purchase on the Amazon storefront, and it’s even Prime eligible, so subscribers will get two-day shipping for no additional cost.
