    2.50 / 5


  • Acceptable processing power for basic computing tasks


  • No Wi-Fi, 3D graphics performance is poor, we would have preferred a wireless keyboard and mouse

Bottom Line

The Acer Aspire AZ3750 is an all-in-one PC that performs basic computing tasks well. It's powerful enough for Web browsing, video watching and word processing, but poor 3D performance and the lack of integrated Wi-Fi stop it from being a more versatile machine.

Would you buy this?

The Acer Aspire AZ3750 is an all-in-one desktop PC with a 21.5in Full HD 1080p screen, a 2.8GHz Intel Pentium G6950 processor, and a 500GB, 72000rpm hard drive. It is poor choice for gaming or processor-intensive tasks, but it's capable for standard home and office duties. It is not the cream of the crop when it comes to all-in-one PCs, but it an affordable desktop PC that should suit the basic computing needs of many families.

Acer Aspire AZ3750: Design, software and features

With a similar pared-down approach to other all-in-one PCs like the Dell Vostro 320, the Acer Aspire AZ3750 only requires the power cable to be connected before it is ready to go — there's no mucking around with monitor or network cables. The Aspire AZ3750 is bundled with a wired keyboard, wired mouse and a remote control for the inbuilt TV tuner; we would have preferred wireless peripherals. There is no external power brick, so moving the Aspire AZ3750 is very easy.

If you want to save even more space you can mount the Acer Aspire AZ3750 on a wall. We are not fans of the two-tone grey and black bezel of the PC — a design which is made worse by a blue LED power strip that runs along the screen's base and does nothing but annoy the eyes. If you want to sit the PC on your desk, the stand is also frustrating — it has a limited range of motion, and can be difficult to adjust without lifting the PC.

The input and output ports of the Acer Aspire AZ3750 are distributed between the rear of the device and the side. Six USB 2.0 ports, PS/2 keyboard and mouse connectors, Ethernet, VGA and HDMI can be found at the rear of the PC, while two USB 2.0 ports and headphone/microphone jacks are on the Aspire AZ3750's side. A major drawback is that the Aspire AZ3750 does not come with Wi-Fi, unlike the similarly designed MSI Wind Top AE1900 all-in-one PC. This means that you'll either have to plug in an Ethernet cable or purchase a USB Wi-Fi dongle.

The PC also features an inbuilt 1.3-megapixel webcam and a card reader. The integrated 5W stereo speakers are unspectacular, but will do the job for watching clips on YouTube or listening to MP3s. The AZ3750 is preloaded with a 64-bit edition of Windows 7 Home Premium.

Acer Aspire AZ3750: Performance

With an Intel Pentium G6950 CPU clocked at 2.8GHz and 4 GB of DDR3 RAM, the Acer Aspire AZ3750 performed acceptably in our basic benchmark tests. The Blender 3D test returned a score of 69sec, while our iTunes encoding test completed in 92sec. These are poor results, but you won't be waiting too long for basic processing tasks to complete. The Acer Aspire AZ3750 returned a 3DMark06 score of only 1292, making it a poor choice for any gaming needs beyond browser-based Flash games.

Acer Aspire AZ3750: Conclusion

The Acer Aspire AZ3750 would be an appropriate choice for a family looking for a basic all-in-one PC for Web browsing, word processing and other basic tasks. Its lack of Wi-Fi is a damaging omission though, and we weren't impressed with its poor 3D graphics performance.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

The Huddle Board’s built in program; Sharp Touch Viewing software allows us to easily manipulate and edit our documents (jpegs and PDFs) all at the same time on the dashboard.

The biggest perks for me would be that it comes with easy to use and comprehensive programs that make the collaboration process a whole lot more intuitive and organic
