Acer Aspire 8930G Review and Specs

Sorry about the picture, but it seems for all the rage being created about the Acer Aspire 8930G, there are very few quality pictures of the high-end gaming machine out there.

But, there is a lot of information and buzz about the specs, and a lot of people are talking about the 8930G’s gaming setup.

Not only does the 8930 feature a super fast 7,200 rpm hard drive, the GForce 9700 GT graphics setup, 5.1 sound support and 18.4″ HD display make this case a bundle of gaming goodies. And at $1,699, the 8930G is reasonable in price without suffering on specs.

Laptop Mag was impressed giving the 8930G four out of five stars, saying:

The system’s powerful processor, improved graphics muscle, and striking design makes it one of the best desktop replacements around.

There seems to be more good than bad about the 8930. There are a few complaints about the trackpad, but when is that news when it comes to notebooks?

If you game with an Acer, let me know what you think in the comments.

Check out some of the specs:

  • Operating System: Microsoft Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo T9400
  • Processor Speed: 2.5 GHz
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • Weight: 8.8 lbs.

  1. I think the machine is fit boy.

    Ok, it looks very nice and seems to perform ok ..

    BUT .. and a really REALLY REALLY huge but ..

    It seems to take more power than is provided!? I’m running mine fine doing normal windows stuff, but when I load up a game, it seems to be running off the battery and recharging it at the same time (while plugged in).. which ends up.. with the battery emptying and the laptop turning off….

    Strange to say the least :/ and a serious issue :/

    eg. I just spent the last while playing a game while being plugged in .. (definetly plugged in) and the thing just turned off .. rebooted and noticed the battery light flashing and the power lead plugged in and on (green light on power adapter and that blue light around the power jack)… windows starts, I mouse over the battery icon on the taskbar and .. its 0%, plugged in, charging and at High Performance.

    Waiting for the battery to charge now so I can go back into the game :/

    Amazing oversight imho..
