Review Acer Aspire 8920G notebook

 

Mobile living room.We reviewed the bigger 18” 16:9 notebook aft

Felitious, attractive design; Good stability and processing of the case; HDMI port and BluRay drive; Bright 16:9 HD display with good contrast ratio; Acceptable 3D performance with Geforce 9650M GS graphics; Very low temperature of the case

Keyboard is getting used to; Volume control via CineDash Media Console very unprecise; Very heavily reflecting display

The maximum battery runtime of this notebook is up to 3 hours, but the laptop is made for stationary usage.

Aspire 8920

 

The $2599 Acer Aspire 8920 is a whole lotta laptop, crammed with so many features that we kept checking for a kitchen sink. It has a humongous screen, a Blu-ray drive, six speakers, a giant hard drive, a top-flight processor, and a gadget-laden...

Giant-sized screen Huge hard drive

No FireWire port Display could be brighter

If you need a basic, workhorse desktop replacement, you have cheaper, more sensible choices than the Acer Aspire 8920. But if flashy looks and big-screen entertainment are your goals, the 8920 deserves a spot on your short list

Acer Aspire 8920G

 

A huge high-def display, awesome sound, and loads of multimedia extras make the Aspire 8920G a compelling desktop replacement notebook.

Acer has nailed multimedia desktop replacement standards with the Aspire 8920G. The stunning 18.4-inch display provides more room than those on 17-inch models but is not quite as ridiculous as screens on 20-inch behemoths. Aside from the promised TV...

Acer Aspire 8920G (AS8920-6671)

 

Acer's new Gemstone Blue line--more specifically, the Aspire 8920G--breaks the mold in more ways than one. Its 16:9, 18.4-inch screen offers true 1080p widescreen resolution; it's the first notebook to break the True 5.1 Dolby sound barrier; and Acer...

Acer's 18.4-inch Aspire 8920G laptop gets reviewed

 

First things first: just in case that headline didn't really sink in, this is an 18.4-inch laptop. In other words, those of you with even the slightest of back problems should probably just pass this one right on by. If you're still with us, ...

Acer Aspire 8920G

 

These extremely responsive buttons worked really well with Acer's Arcade Deluxe, a complete multimedia software suite that incorporates Blu-ray software. By contrast, the HP HDX-9000 has a removable media remote that's similar to a TV remote. The palm...

Unprecedented 18.4-inch widescreen. Top-notch performance scores. 4GB of RAM. Resolution is precisely 1080p. Blu-ray burner built in. Relatively light considering the screen size. CineTouch controls are intuitive. Excellent sound quality

Design induces yawning. Feature set is underwhelming. Pricey. Sub-par battery life ; Watch the Acer Aspire 8920G Video Review

The Acer Aspire 8920G is equipped with an unprecedented 18.4-inch screen and performance parts that are future-proofed.

Invasion of the large-screen notebooks: Bigger really can be better

 

Entertainment and business multimedia go hand in hand with these three big notebooks, but which one is a true blockbuster?

Great performance and battery life, multimedia controls, speakers, articulated arm hinge

Slow TV tuner, Media Center software problems, no FM radio

On top of the usual array of benchmarks, I added several tests to gauge the multimedia and entertainment abilities of these notebooks. After measuring, weighing and examining every nook and cranny of each system, each was given a thorough workout.

Acer Aspire 8920G Laptop Review and Ratings

 

The Acer Aspire 8920G is a snappy-looking desktop replacement notebook featuring one of the nicest displays we've seen. Its high-end Penryn processor will handle anything you throw at it, but serious gamers will likely require more 3D muscle.

Solid productivity performance ; Brilliant HD display ; Sleek design

Average 3D gaming performance ; Lacks a TV tuner ; CineDash console can be tricky to use
