Acer Aspire TC-780-AMZKi5 Desktop Computer Review

Acer Aspire TC-780-AMZKi5

The Acer Aspire TC-780-AMZKi5 desktop computer was one of my favorites in my list of church computers for media. The Acer brand makes a great computer especially for those that need excellent media functionality.

One of the things I have recommended is finding a great top of the line computers that are now being replaced with the latest and greatest.

Finding one of these computers that are refurbished will save you hundreds of dollars and the computer will still do the job.

Not all computers are ideal for working with video and photo editing, but we have found one that can do it all.

The Acer Aspire desktop computer makes multitasking simple, and you can enjoy plenty of power for working with both photos and videos.

It offers a 7th generation Intel Core i5-7400 processor, 8GB of memory, three USB 3.0 ports, and four USB 2.0 ports.

The front-panel media access lets you connect other devices quickly and easily without having to reach around to the back and fiddle with anything.

Pros and Cons

Okay, so I have talked about some of the best features this PC has to offer. However, there are always going to be things about any product that some users don’t like, including this one. So, before you spend any money, I would like to talk about the pros and cons of buying the Acer Aspire desktop computer.

  • Accessories – While you do have to buy a monitor separately, this PC does come with a keyboard and mouse. It is ready to use right out of the box. Just hook it up to the monitor you are currently using, and it is ready to go. Windows 10 Hone 64-bit edition is already installed for you.
  • Price – This PC proves that you don’t have to spend much money to get everything you need in a great computer. You can get this PC for less than $700 on Amazon, and when you add a good graphics card, you can enjoy an impressive performance for gaming.
  • Usability – Many users report that they enjoy great speed and that they can multitask easily with this PC. They are able to easily use any mouse and keyboard, including wireless devices. Windows 10 is already installed, so they can start using this computer without having to spend hours on installations and updates.

  • Product Key – Some users report that upon receiving this product, they were not able to use it due to an invalid product key for Windows. They were not able to get the product key by calling tech support.
  • WiFi – Some users report that the WiFi is not good. They seem to have many difficulties with connectivity, even though there are two ways to connect.
  • Tech Support – Some users have reported that when they do have trouble with this computer, they receive little to no help from technical support.

Bottom Line

Even refurbished the Acer Aspire TC-780-AMZKi5 desktop computer is a great buy. There are very few computers under $500.00 that come with the graphics hardware that this computer comes with.

It will make a great addition to your home office, small business, church, or non-profit organization.
