Aspire 8930

 

Acer has put just enough features and perks into the Aspire 8930, its high-end performance laptop. Thanks to a couple of reasonably primo parts, this high-octane portable is a solid choice for mobility-minded gamers. And with a price tag under two...

Great Hi-def screen Good gaming performance

Poor surround speakers

As with many laptops, sound is the Aspire 8930's sole stumbling point. The machine is billed as a home-theater substitute, and it comes with a full 5.1 setup. In stereo mode, it performs reasonably well; music is loud, and movies are clear....

Acer Aspire 8930-6448 review: Acer Aspire 8930-6448

 

Acer Aspire 8930-6448

Big, 18-inch, 16:9 screen; surprisingly good battery life.

No Blu-ray drive; touch controls not as responsive as they should be.

With a true 1080p display, the 18-inch Acer Aspire 8930 is a capable HD-content playback machine, but we'd spend a bit more for a Blu-ray-equipped version.

Acer Aspire 8930G Laptop

 

Acer were founded in 1976 and are highly regarded within the industry as a key player. They are best known now for their line of desktop and laptop computers while also offering equipment such as displays, servers and storage solutions.

The Acer Aspire 8930G is certainly an impressive looking machine with its 18.4 inch LCD and beautifully designed chassis. The chassis could be slightly tighter as there is a small amount of flex from side to side but generally the laptop feels very...

Acer Aspire 8930G Review – Gemstone Blue Laptop Hands-On!

 

Update: Laptop now available to buy online in the UK. The Masters of the Universe have gladly given me access to a beauty of a gaming machine. Now I know what your saying…..Acer?

Compared to a Dell XPS M1730, I found it to play the most demanding computer games of today, such as FarCry 2, Red Alert 3 and even Mirrors Edge, which kind of made me a bit of a rubble at the pit of my stomach and gave me a new fear of vertigo was...

Acer Aspire 8930G-864G32Bn review

 

A great entertainment laptop with a full HD screen and reasonable gaming performance, but it's outshone by Sony's Vaio FW41E/H.

Acer Aspire 8930G review

 

Acer's Aspire 8930G is the only laptop here to have a quad-core processor. The 2GHz Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000 powered this laptop through our Windows performance tests.

Thanks to a couple of reasonably primo parts, the Acer Aspire 8930 is a high-octane portable that's a solid choice for mobility minded gamers.

The Acer Aspire 8930 offers a great combination of price and purpose. Our only reservations relate to our review model's lack of a Blu-ray drive (since the machine has a Full HD display but its video card won't run games at that resolution, you'll want...
