Acer XC-603 Desktop and Acer 21.5″ Monitor Bundle at Staples

A sales brochure for the office supplies company Staples fell out of my newspaper recently and on the back page was offered a desktop computer and monitor bundle for just £299.99.

The desktop computer is the Acer XC-603 and the monitor a 21.5″ Acer S series model with 1920x 1080 full HD resolution.

This looked a good deal and so I headed to the offer on the Staples web site where I found the Acer desk tower unit has the following specifications:

  • Intel J2900 2.41 GHz Quad core processor
  • 500GB hard drive
  • 4GB RAM memory
  • Windows 8.1 64 bit
  • 802.11 b/g/n WiFi

So this is a basic desktop computer ideal for surfing the internet and installing and using basic office suites such as Microsoft Office but would not be much use to those who need fast processors or high end graphics.

If you did not need the monitor, perhaps you already own a perfectly good one already both Argos and Misco sell just the Acer XC-603 computer fitted with the Intel J2900, and Debenhams Plus and sell a version of the Acer XC-603 computer fitted with the Intel Celeron J1900 processor.


I came across the video review of the Acer XC-603 desktop computer on YouTube which you might find useful even though the sound is virtually non existent throughout much of it.
