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...

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 Aspire 6930G-583G notebook review

 

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 The range has since been replaced by the 6930 and 6935, which proves to be an update rather...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

An incredible amount of multimedia laptop for the money, and one of the cheapest Blu-ray laptops on the market

The Aspire 6930G has an unusual 16in screen that uses a non-standard resolution of 1,366x768 that's more often found on LCD TVs.

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...
