In 2017, Apple seems to have a new rival in the desktop industry as Acer will be introducing its new Aspire C-series desktops. As consumers wait for the release of the iMac 2017, let us take a quick look on its rumored specs and compare it to the upcoming Aspire C-series.
It has been a while since Apple updated its iMac. This is the main reason why consumers are eagerly waiting for the release of the iMac 2017 early next year. With regards to its specs, reports state that it will boast a 27-inch 5K Retina display similar to the 2015 model. But the difference is, it will be capable of supporting an OLED Touch Bar.
Furthermore, instead of a Kaby Lake chipset, iTechPost mentioned that the future iMac will use an Intel Xeon processor. It is considered as one of the most powerful processors in this generation. High-end PCs are the usual gadgets that Xeon is supporting as it is capable of reducing programming errors.

Also, the iMac 2017 is sporting a Touch ID and will support USB Type-C Thunderbolt ports. But the most interesting addition to the desktop?s features is it will now support Virtual Reality (VR). Alongside the VR is a powerful GPU that will improve the user?s experience.
But, all these new features will also have its downside. Because there are a lot of new interesting specs added to the iMac 2017, consumers should expect its price to increase. These features would not come for free and they will certainly add to the device?s cost.
Now, for those who are not willing to spend more money for a desktop but are looking for a great deal, you might consider buying the Acer Aspire C-series. The new desktop series will cost from $450 up to $700. Price of the iMac 2017, on the other hand, has not yet been announced but it is expected to be much more expensive than the C-series price list.
Meanwhile, the upcoming Aspire C-series will feature the sixth-generation Core i3 processors. It will as well sport 1TB HDD storage and an 8GB of DDR4 RAM. Moreover, reports stated that its display will come in two sizes – 21.5 and 23.8 inches. Both are capable of full HD resolution so you can pick any of those.
For those who will buy the new Acer Aspire C-series, you can choose between Windows 10, Linux and FreeDOS for its system. Although these specs are nothing compared to the ones iMac 2017 has, still, the device?s price is the deal-breaker.
