    I'm thinking of buying an Acer or Asus All-In-One PC.

    I'm also thinking about future upgrading. I know that the memory in All-In-One PCs is easily upgradable but I am thinking about the Hard Drive and disc drives in case of failure.

    Can anyone please tell me if these drives are easily changed?

    All help much appreciated

    Hard drives should be easily upgradable/replacable, just a matter of opening the case. The optical drive may be a bit harder as the front face plate will have to match, although you may be able to swap the front off the old drive onto the new drive. Basically think of these as laptop's without the portability. If you are looking for a quality unit I'd probably recommend Asus over Acer, Acer(and eMachine's and Gateway) are the cheapest units on the market for a reason.
