Acer Aspire NX4440

The Acer Aspire NX4440 is one of the few neatest pieces of hardware we receive the neatest pieces hardware you cao provision for an additional fan at the front of the case..d. Although the ultra-widescreen LCD with the 16:10 aspect ratio was the common component sent to us for all the Acer desktops, the keyboard, mouse and obviously the main case were different. This is one of the really compact systems weve seen and it looks really pretty. The front has a really glossy finish and houses the audio, USB connectors along side the memory card reader that reads pretty much every format. Theres even a tiny Firewire port in the front.

The Acer Aspire branding along the side adds to the style element of this system. The top has a flap which when pressed powers on the system. The build of the system is pretty good as well.

With the case open, things get even more interesting. A large cooler sits in the center of the GeForce 8200 board used for the AMD Athlon X2 5000+ processor.

The hardware used is a pretty good combination for all kind of work. Its a shame that only a gigabyte of memory was used in the system sent to us. Opt for 2GB of memory if you can. The configuration is just about right for playing back HD 1080p content on it too. A full sized DVD writer and a standard 3.5-inch 320 GB desktop drive is used in it.

The case has been designed well. Most of the cables have a synthetic sheathing around them and are routed through the gaps along the sides of the case. A PCIe x1 and a full sized PCIe x16 slot are also present in case you want to upgrade your graphics solution but the space for a large card may not be present in this particular cabinet.

The power supply used is a narrower and long one which is present in most cabinets of this kind. There are support frames built for the power supply resting on the optical drive. Everything is sturdy and there is no wobbling, shaking or sounds from vibrations in this case.
