Acer's Aspire U (model A5600U-UB13) is a stylish AIO with a few minor flaws

Jon L. Jacobi | July 9, 2013
Undeniably good-looking, the Acer Aspire U all-in-one delivers a classy desktop computing and multimedia experience. We’ve selected it to serve as our reference desktop PC.

Because of the warranty and boot issues, Acer said that consumers should contact the company about replacing failed components, such as a hard drive. Perhaps you can live with that for the warranty period, but the UEFI BIOS issue could be problematic after that.

When all is said and done, the Aspire U is an attractive mainstream family computer with average to good components, performance, and features. It's a good pick for those on opposite sides of the spectrum: People who never see themselves repairing or upgrading their own computer, and tech-savvy types who want an upgradeable AIO and are capable of working around the UEFI issue.
