Review Acer Aspire 8942G Notebook


Big Brother? Acer has technically upgraded its 18.4 inch lineup t

Many connections; Good sound; Good application performance; Pleasant input devices; Illuminated keyboard; Practical multimedia control; Stays fairly quiet and cool; Impressive battery life under low load

Smudge susceptible, sensitive case; Reflective display; Graphic card too weak for newer games in FullHD; Display's poor viewing angles; Touchpad too far left

While the Acer Aspire 8942G-526G64Bi laptop may lack the superb build quality of the MacBook Pro or the stylish sophistication of HP's Envy 15, it delivers a rich multimedia experience and is reasonably priced.

Acer Aspire 8942G


The Acer Aspire 8942G is a desktop replacement in an almost literal sense - you'll barely be able to see any desk behind it. A gigantic 18.4in display means the chassis measures 440mm across and weighs more than 4kg, so it's good for the occasional...

Huge and over the top, but the Aspire offers tremendous power at a surprisingly sensible price
