Acer Unleashes New Aspire All-in-One PCs

Promoted at Computex 2012 global technical exhibition, Acer Aspire 5600U and 7600U PCs have finally been launched. The models supplemented the series of Acer's all-in-one solutions and offered a number of unmatched opportunities for customers. Among others, Aspire 5600U and Aspire 7600U computers are distinguished by an adjustable stand that doesn't have any mind-bending gismos. One should take into account that the newly launched products feature both similar and dissimilar characteristics.

Greeting an Affordable Z170A-X1/3.1 Mainboard from ASRock

ASRock is known for developing high-quality hardware components for a relatively affordable price. Thence, its latest Z170A-X1/3.1 ATX mainboard is not an exception, since its price tag does not go beyond $100.
