The Aspire M5100 budget-minded middle-of-the-road desktop computer with a quad-core 2.2-GHz AMD Phenom 9500 processor, 3GB of RAM, and a 500GB hard drive as its common componetry. It sports a sleek glossy front panel, with almost indistinguishable doors that conceal the optical drives. The downward-sliding door covering the 3.5-inch drive bays also hides the 9-in-1 media card readers.

9/11/2009 11:15:40 PM my acer AM-5100 has already been in the shop twice. Both times they returned it in working condition and i was surprised it only took them a few days (including shipping time!) the acer people were very helpful and replaced the motherboard and cpu along with other things. i purchased this computer online and it was refurbished. it's a good computer but i can't upgrade the graphics because the power supply is too small. the computer tends to run hotter than it should if i do too many things at one time.
