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 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...

If you're in the hunt for a stellar multimedia machine but find 18-inch notebooks to be overkill, turn a sharp eye toward the Acer Aspire 6930G-6723. This smaller brother to the Acer Aspire 8930G packs a powerful Intel Core 2 Duo processor,...

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.

Acer's Aspire 6930G-583G is a feature-packed media centre laptop that offers great value for money

Blu-ray drive ; Good graphics performance ; HDMI and eSATA

Acer Aspire 6930G-583G notebook

 

We were particularly impressed with Acer's high-end Aspire 6920G when we tested it last year, but there's no getting away from the fact it was a pricey laptop. The range has since been replaced by the 6930 and 6935, which proves to be an update rather...

Excellent value for money, great usability, lots of features

Bulky, poor battery life

The most surprising aspect of this machine is just how much it offers for the money. We were already impressed with the high-end models, but now it’s also possible for those on a budget to get an incredibly well-specified multimedia centre. Mobility...

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...
