Acer eMachines EL1850

August 26, 2010 · Posted in Inventory 

About one week ago, I bought a new Desktop from Giant, priced at $739. Here are the technical specifications:

  • Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit
  • Intel Pentium Processor E5500
  • Intel GMA X4500 Graphics
  • DVD Super Multi-drive
  • 320GB Hard Drive
  • 2GB DDR3 Memory
  • Multi-in-One Media Card Reader

So, the specification does not seem somewhat spectacular. But, why is it a good buy?

First of all, it has a 20-inch LCD monitor and accompanied with a pair of speakers. Okay, and what else? It is the CPU box. Generally, the CPU box for a normal desktop is a tower chassis. Here, it is miniature sized CPU box, which takes up only 1/3 of the normal space required. This is exceptionally important for space-conscious environment.

When I ran the CPUID application, CPU-Z, it reveals quite an okay processor. At 2.8GHz, it has 2 threads on top of 2 cores, it has already superseded the expectation for web-surfing utilisation and normal office applications. Nowadays, I no longer program codes that performs data crunching, so a top-end system is not my requirement. So, for home usage, this is good enough.
