Review Acer Aspire 6930G Notebook


The Aspire 6930G is another Acer notebook that could be interesti ...

Good price to performance ratio ; Stylish design ; Quiet during operation ; Decent sound of the loudspeakers

Flexing keyboard with glossy keys ; Short battery lifetime ; Some weakness in workmanship (although the chassis is quite solid)

The Aspire 6930G has a battery with the same capacity as the already reviewed Aspire 5930G (4400mAh, 48Whr). But, this model has a considerably shorter battery life. Why? Because of a CPU with higher thermal dissipation power (TDP). The Core 2 Duo...

Acer 6930


The Acer 6930 is an average machine with very little that makes it stand out in a crowd.

The 6930 comes with an Intel T5800 processor clocked at 2 GHz, 3 GB of system memory, 320 GB HDD and is Bluetooth 2.0 EDR capable. Its graphics are powered by the Intel GMA 4500 chipset. These are very average specifications and this showed in our test...

Acer Aspire 6930G-6723


This head-turning 16-inch notebook features Blu-ray playback, as well as good performance and graphics muscle, for less than a grand.

Priced at a very wallet-friendly $999, the Acer Aspire 6930-6723 provides an excellent all-around multimedia experience for the movie buff, music fan, or gamer. Granted, a full 1080p display would be the optimal resolution for a system with an...

Acer Aspire 6930G-6723


The 16-inch widescreen is nothing new in the laptop industry. We can expect a huge influx of laptops with a 16:9 aspect ratio by 2009. You're not exactly getting more screen real estate—just a wider screen to mimic the ones founds in consumer HDTVs....

Blu-ray reader included. Unbeatable price. Good performance scores. Good graphics card. Terrific typing experience. Generous feature set

A bit bulky

Equipped with a Blu-ray drive and generous performance parts for under $1,000, the 6930G has regained the Editors' Choice accolade for best value media center laptop that its predecessor lost.

good laptop dispite vista 64


I would recommend this laptop if you want to play 3d games on your laptop without spending too much - it was nearly half the price of other laptops in its class.

The performance on my 3d games is great for a laptop at this price. The numeric keypad is a nice touch. I find the touch controls for volume, wifi and bluetooth more handy than I thought they would be

I had my first OS crash on the first day - Microsoft dump tool identified the wifi driver. It has not happened again however. The touchpad is really erratic - fortunately I use a bluetooth mouse most of the time. The two things I wished it had are a...

All around notebook with Gaming capabilities


One of most impressive details was when I opened the hard drive/RAM bay underneath. You have access to the CPU and Fan so a cleaning a simple. I also replace the RAM with OCZ DDR2 800, don't know if really made a difference but I just like to know its...

This Acer is great! Design is sleek and the power under the hood compliments it well. For a notebook to run Vista smoothly is not an easy task, but it performs. I installed COD 5 and its runs smooth on medium High settings. I average about 40fps, which...

Not so much a con but the unit does produce some heat, but all notebooks do. I have a ZALMAN NC2000 cooler and it makes a great difference in temperature. Make sure to use a cooler to prolong the life of the notebook. The hottest part is the GPU. I...

No Windows Installation Disc


Newegg shipped the laptop in very timely fashion, it arrived within the guaranteed number of days. The laptop performs very well thus far. I have only played a few older games and each have performed very well; this isn't the computer you should be...

Lots of bloatware....even worse, it doesn't come with a Windows installation disc. The laptop has backup and recovery software pre-loaded. However, this is no substitute for a clean Windows installation disc. I haven't seen this detail listed anywhere...

Acer Aspire AS6930-6073 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P8600(2.40GHz) 16" Wide XGA 4GB Memory 320GB HDD DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS - Retail


This laptop is BEAUTIFUL, the pictures don't do it justice. I have NO buyers remorse on this thing, worth EVERY penny.

BY FAR the best bang for your buck, like many others have said, to get the same specs in a different laptop would cost 4-6 hundred more dollars. for the price, its more than I would expect to get. It has the best sound system in a laptop i have heard...

while the speakers themselves are great, the "subwoofer" is a little lacking
