One part of the listing says it had Nvidia geforce gfx, but it only has Intel HD630 onboard gfx.

If you look on the Acer site it has USB 3.0 and 3.1 ports. Just ordered one for a friend. Nice deal.

Yeah that must be a mistake, I have the same model (DT.BAQEK.002) at work and it has 2x USB3.1 ports at the front (USB-A and USB-C).
What, no PSU? ....

...must be powered by an external power block... like a laptop. Very fast CPU but would still recommend adding a £15 SSD to boot from... I guess there's a spare SATA port in this tiny box somewhere.

I'm guessing it's the image that's wrong.
Does this have hdmi outputs? Can’t find the information anywhere... :/

Yes, to HDMI... Acer page here for exact model number ... acer.com/ac/…002

PS. Any techs reading this? One of the review comments is "The HDD takes a bit of time on startup"
Can anybody explain what Microsoft has done with Windows10 to make traditional hard drives so slow? The CPU in this box is really fast and its got a decent amount of memory. As I said before, adding a 128GB SSD for £15 should be a good fix.

Tempted. Any downers?
Nah. Not happy with discrepancies between the eBay listing and that on manufacturers web.
Wow this is a fantastic deal. I wish I needed one atm
OOS.
