The 27" Aspire U27 Series Multi-Touch All-In-One Desktop Computer from Acer is a compact system designed for everyday home uses such as browsing the Internet, composing and editing documents, and streaming online videos or movies. Powered by a 2.7 GHz Intel Core i7-7500U dual-core processor and 16GB of DDR4 RAM, it can efficiently multitask and quickly access frequently used files and programs. Moreover, the processor is liquid-cooled with a fanless heatpipe system, which keeps things at optimal temperatures and minimizes dust without creating noise. For storage, it's equipped with a 256GB SSD and a 1TB 5400 rpm HDD. To add more space, connect external storage solutions using its multiple USB ports as well as its SD card reader.
Its 27" display, driven by integrated Intel HD graphics, features a 1920 x 1080 Full HD resolution for crisp and clear details. It also supports multi-touch functionality so you'll be able to utilize touch gestures and commands to increase its efficiency and accessibility. Other integrated features include 802.11ac Wi-Fi, a Gigabit Ethernet LAN port, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, a webcam, microphone, speakers, HDMI-in and -out ports, a Thunderbolt 3 port, and audio in/out jacks. The operating system installed is Windows 10 Home (64-Bit), and a wireless keyboard and mouse are included for your convenience.
- Thunderbolt 3
- Thunderbolt 3 is a hardware interface that utilizes the reversible USB Type-C connector. Doubling the speed of its predecessor, Thunderbolt 3 features a maximum throughput of 40 Gb/s when used with compatible devices. The connector also transmits data via USB 3.1 at up to 10 Gb/s, and dual-bandwidth DisplayPort 1.2 allows you to connect up to two 4K displays simultaneously. Additionally, you can daisy chain up to six devices from a single Thunderbolt 3 port.
- Compact Design
- Measuring roughly 0.47" thin, this system has a compact footprint to help you save on desk space. The screen also tilts from -5 to 25°, so you can find the best angle to fit your current application.
- Windows Hello
- Log into your system easily and without a password by using your face. Thanks to Windows Hello and the webcam, you'll be able to sign into your system with just a glance.
- Energized Entertainment
- Dolby Audio and Acer TrueHarmony enhances your audio for a more immersive experience with virtual surround sound and deeper bass.
Windows 10 Home (64-Bit)
- Start Menu
- After its hiatus in Windows 8, the Start Menu has returned. Utilizing a combination of the traditional menu system and Windows 8's Live Tiles, the improved Start Menu gives you more information at a glance, showing notification information alongside your applications and other pinned items.
- Microsoft's digital personal assistant, Cortana can answer your questions with information gleaned from both your device and the internet at large. You can type or even talk with her, if your system has a microphone. Using her Notebook, Cortana keeps track of your needs and wants, and she learns over time to improve her information gathering skills.
- Microsoft Edge
- After nearly 20 years, Microsoft has finally replaced its Internet Explorer web browser. With Microsoft Edge, users can write directly on web pages and share notes with friends and colleagues. It also improves the online reading experience by adding a distraction-free mode and read-it-later functionality. Edge also has built-in Cortana integration; you can have her help you find a restaurant, make a reservation, and pull up directions without leaving your browser.
- Windows Store
- For Windows 10, Microsoft has unified the Windows Store. Now, apps for PCs, tablets, and phones will all be accessible from one place. And with support for Universal Apps, one version of an app can work across all your compatible devices automatically.
- Windows Continuum
- Windows 10 was designed for a variety of screen sizes and input styles, and with its Continuum feature, it automatically adapts to fit your needs. A Windows 10 tablet on its own requires a touch-centric approach, but attaching a mouse and keyboard will shift everything to a more traditional interface. You can even attach an external monitor to your Windows 10 phone for a near-desktop experience. But it's not just the operating system; Windows Universal Apps take advantage of Continuum as well.
- Xbox on Windows 10
- Gaming is a big focus of Windows 10. Xbox integration allows for PC players to match up against Xbox One players on supported games, and if you have an Xbox One, you can even stream compatible titles to your PC. Native support for recording with the new Game DVR feature makes it easy to capture and share your gameplay. The new DirectX12 takes better advantage of multi-core processors, giving games a performance boost, even on older hardware. Windows 10 also features native support for virtual reality headsets, such as the Oculus Rift.
