For the price, this Acer Aspire desktop is extremely nice. I have another Acer with a Core i3, and it’s honestly pretty slow. I was a little concerned the i5 wouldn’t be fast enough, but the 7th gen core i5-7400 (up to 3.5 Ghz) has been plenty fast enough for my needs. This computer comes with 12 GB of RAM, upgradeable to 32 GB. It has one 8GB stick and one 4GB stick, so you could upgrade just the 4GB to a 16GB and have 24GB of RAM, which is what I’m planning on doing,” said one reviewer. More information.
