Acer Recertified via eBay has the XC-830-UW91 slim desktop computer for $99.99 with free shipping. 12% off is automatically applied at checkout for a final price of $87.99. Intel Celeron J4125 quad-core processor up to 2.7GHz, 4GB DDR4 SDRAM expandable to 8GB, 256GB M.2 PCIe SSD, 802.11AC and Bluetooth, native 4K HDMI with Intel UHD Graphics 600 and HD Audio 5.1 surround, gigabit ethernet, 4- USB 2.0 and 2- USB 3.1 ports, VGA, PCIe X16 expansion slot (low profile), DVD/RW, SD card reader, Windows 10 Home. This desktop is WIndows 11 ready and Acer says that the upgrade to Windows 11 is free. Includes wired keyboard and mouse,

Reviews say that boot time is a lightning fast 13 seconds, and that fan noise is virtually nonexistent. I just ordered one as a new media PC. I'll upgrade RAM to 8GB prior to use; Intel UHD Graphics 600 shares system memory so 8GB is advised for best performance when streaming or playing 4K content. I wouldn't use this machine for high end gaming, but it should do well with pretty much everything else you throw at it, including fairly heavy office work. This is a really low cost option for replacing an older desktop with the latest technology; I have 2 slim Acer desktops and they're surprisingly good performers. One has 20,000+ hours on it with zero issues.

Hello, it can do 4K 60Hz in Windows 10, you just have to goto the advanced display settings to change the refresh rate to 60Hz. I had to set the resolution to 4096×2160 to get it to fill the screen. Be aware that watching youtube videos at this resolution, in full screen mode, you will see it struggle a lot. Especially with 60fps videos. You will get a much better experience if you lower the resolution in my opinion.

No, just no. Buy cheap, buy twice. Get the $203 i3-based Acer desktop from the parallel deal. It'll perform enormously better and will serve you longer (performance-wise).

Different strokes for different folks. The J4125 processor has been very popular and well rated in the NUC and micro PC space. I'm currently running a J1900 and a J2900 in my 2 other slim Acers and they do a great job, way better than I thought they would as Celerons. The i3 based Acer is a great deal as well, but almost twice the price. There is definitely a niche for this machine for those with a limited budget. Imagine what you'd have to spend to build a PC with these specs. I respect your opinion, but this one has plenty of horsepower for most users' needs, and if they want more they can spend the $203 for the i3. Both offer a lot of value for the money.

This processor was slow in 2019 when it came out. No. No. No.

Obviously, it depends what you want to do, but for a normal person? They will throw this out the window.

I agree as well

for $70 more you get a much better CPU, and double the ram

The PSU on this is even more limited than the $203 one , think i read it says 65 watts..

The $203 one has 300 watt power supply, this one is also capped at a maximum of 8 gb of ram while the other one can have up to 32 gb max. intel hd graphics 600 vs 630 so you also get better integrated graphics on the other one ...

If you have the extra $70 don't buy this in fact, if you don't have the $70 extra just wait until you do , its not worth getting this one over than other one

It's on Acer's product page for this model, center near top of the page. I took their word for it without digging deeper than that.

Add a 4-port ethernet NIC, and you have a decent, low-power PfSense or OpenWrt router

Guy walks into a used car dealership.

Guy: Hi! I'm looking for a car for my Mom; I want to spend about $11,500

Salesman: It's your lucky day! We have this Corvette that I can let go for an even 20 grand.

Guy: Yeah she doesn't want or need something that fancy, and it's more than I want to spend. How about this Malibu over here? It's really clean and looks almost brand new, might be just what she needs, and it's in my price range. Says $11,995 on the windshield.

Salesman (laughing) Dude that Malibu will only do 114MPH tops with that funky old stock V6. This 'Vette will take her to 183MPH and still be smooth as butter. And 0-60 in 4.8 seconds; there's nothing like being glued to the seat when you floor it!

Guy: Mom never goes over the speed limit, so that's not really what matters in this deal. Mind if I give the Malibu a test drive?

Salesman: OK now you're being unreasonable. Your Mom should walk wherever she goes until you can afford this Corvette. Did I mention that it can go 197MPH with a few mods? Nobody should have to face the shame of driving a Malibu. A normal person would just push it off a cliff. Is your Mom even normal?

Guy: Yeah I'm out. See ya, bro.

Yeah same here, I had a really old computer running a j2900 hosting my Nextcloud instance, and just replaced it with a mini PC running a J4125. Night and day from the j2900, but for general computing I'd recommend something a little beefier.

I'm not knocking the i3 version; it's a heck of a machine for the price, and head and shoulders above this one. There are advantages to both beyond just price, raw power, and expandability. For instance, this CPU's power consumption is rated at $12.25 per year to run 24/7, compared to the i3's $80, at my local rates. May not sound like much, but the J4125 desktop in 24/7 service will pay for itself in CPU power consumption savings alone inside of 2 years. It's a bigger picture thing that most people don't talk about much. To each his/her own, everybody has their opinion and they're all different. That disparity seems to be on steroids when the discussion turns to computers. Thanks for commenting in a nice way.

My Ryzen 3 boots up far faster. 7 seconds.

This though should work fine for most people and it is possible you could upgrade the DDR to 16 GB.

It will run Windows 11 having come out in 2019,

Just do not expect too much from it. It is similar in speed to a N4000. It is really a laptop not a Desktop design. Just a laptop without a built in monitor.

Agreed; it even uses laptop RAM sticks. As far as boot and operating speeds, well it's a $115 desktop haha. When you look at the feature set, it offers a lot for that kind of money. Definitely not for everyone, but a sweet little deal for the casual user.

Just received this and looks like new, the motherboard contains 2 SATA ports and 1 m2 SSD slot, so planning to install openmediavault or truenas on m2ssd and use it as a 2-bay NAS. this should work fine as 24/7 NAS.

Any thoughts on this?
