If space is an issue, the Aspire XC series is the perfect solution, as it is compact enough to be placed on the desktop. The TC series on the other hand comes in a typical micro-tower format that allows more flexibility. Both series are clothed in a stylish modern design enhanced by the soft surface on the front with a brushed metallic finish. The combination of different materials and textures – glossy black, silver chrome, brushed silver – creates visual richness. What’s more, the most used ports are nicely grouped on the front for easier access and the TC models also have a handy recess on top where users can put their tech gadgets.

Performance wise, the XC and TC series are offered with a choice of the latest generation AMD APUs, designed to easily handle common daily tasks and to speed up everyday computing. This means users can have more fun and spend less time waiting. A selection of powerful graphic solutions to choose from enables the TC series to deliver incredible HD entertainment with excellent visual quality. Thanks to the HDMI 1.4 port, these desktops are capable of providing immersive 3D entertainment with incredible audio-visual quality when paired with 3D displays.

With up to 16 GB of memory for both the XC and the TC series, not only system performance and multitasking capability are greatly enhanced, but users can also enjoy faster browsing, printing, and better networking experience. Needless to say, these desktops allow users to happily go ahead and grow their multimedia libraries with complete peace of mind, as they offer plenty of storage capacity. The multi-in-one card reader allows effortless file transfer and sharing, while the USB 3.0 ports allow much faster file transfer using less power make it easier to link up any device you need.
