Acer 6920G

 

Acer has been on a roll of late with its Gemstone series of laptops, which have enjoyed huge popularity in the budget and value segment. Looking at tapping into the higher-end market, the company recently unveiled its 'Gemstone Blue' range of laptops,...

The 6920 represents a positive step forward for Acer. It’s well designed, has good battery life, and is easy on the eye. At its price of Rs 59,000 upward, it's an intriguing notebook and is easily one of the best choices available right now.

Acer Aspire 6920 Review

 

The all new Gemstone Blue series notebooks from Acer offer a cinematic experience with a 16-inch 16:9 ratio display, built-in subwoofer, and touch-sensitive multimedia control panel. Going beyond the multimedia experience, Acer also give this Gemstone...

Solid build quality ; Cool screen cover paint finish ; Chrome and LED trimmed pieces everywhere ; Operates with lap friendly temperatures ; Great battery life

Anemic main speaker drivers ; Mild keyboard flex under typing pressure ; Poor screen viewing angles

Even while maintaining a very cool outside temperature, the system doesn't really emit much fan noise. During normal operation the system has the fan completely off or at a very slow speed, which you can only hear if your head is right above the...

Acer Aspire 6920G-6071

 

The 6980G's exterior design could have been more imaginative. It's spray-painted in dark blue (with no other color choices) and laminated in gloss. Frankly, it looks plain. The feature set, on the other hand, is anything but. To the left of the...

First laptop with 16-inch widescreen. Incredible bargain. Blu-ray drive included. HDMI-out. Discrete nVidia graphics. 3GB of memory. Impressive battery life for a desktop replacement

Plain design. No FireWire port

Not only is the Acer Aspire 6920G-6071 the first to incorporate a 16-inch widescreen, it's also the first to bundle a Blu-ray drive for under $1,000.

Be very wary of this computer!

 

Runs Windows 7. Has this pretty side media touchpad controller....that only works about 25% of the time

So many things. Media reading hardware and such is always faulty and the touchpad on the left is very unreliable. I'd strongly recommend considering another laptop

This laptop is awesome !!!!

 

This laptop is simply the best. You have to see it and use to know what i am talking (Writing) about.

Great price for what you are getting. Nothing in the same price range can get you all the features it comes with

A little heavy. could have a better video card built in

Consumer review by:

Great for all your needs. replace the desktop.

 

For the same computer by others Dell, Sony, and HP would cost you 1300 or 2000 so if quality and cost is a concern choose this unit. You will love the look and you will get alot of looks at your local wifi spot when they see the style. You also get the...

Great Screen Nice hard drive space. Nice power up and battery life. Dual Core is amazing when you multi task. I would say for the price it is a steal

Takes some time to get used to the key board but once you no problem. Also expansion for memory would have been nice. But 4GB is all I need now who knows what tomorrow will bring. :)

Solid Performer, Iffy Construction

 

This is a great machine if you aren't going to be banging it around. It's a robust performer for a variety of different applications and, Vista notwithstanding, will serve you well for a variety of different uses. If you are going to be running around...

This is a great performer. I play a lot of games and this is a secondary gaming platform; it does its job well and holds up very well with a great variety of different kinds of software. The keyboard is nice and wide, great for a guy with big hands and...

The construction and bloatware is where it drops points. The machine does not feel sturdy at all and the placement of some key parts is poorly thought out. One of the key heat vents points directly at the screen so the screen begins discoloring after...

Terrific value

 

This is a late Christmas, early birthday present for my wife, replacing a four year old Toshiba Pentium 4M laptop that served her well. I transferred all her stuff to the Acer using Vista's migration wizard before I gave it to her, and she opened the...

Size, screen and keyboard are perfect for daily use ; Sound is excellent for a laptop ; WiFi works great ; Processor and memory work great with Vista 64 ; Price ; Did I mention price ; Just great all around

Battery could be better, but you know that going in ; Vista 64 program compatibility is still kind of iffy, but that's not Acer's fault ; A little heavy but not really a problem
