Acer Aspire AS6930-6067 or AS6935-6194 Core 2 Duo 16″ Notebook Review


09.08.2009

Acer will soon become the second largest computer maker in the world just behind Hewlett-Packard. If it will be very hard to catch up with HP, Acer is not having any problem to surpass Dell. Here is another reason why Acer is outrunning Dell: a cheap and good notebook: AS6930-6067 or AS6935-6194 laptop that will likely impress you.

The Acer Aspire AS6930-6067 or AS6935-6194 features an 2.0GHz Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 processor, 4GB DDR2, 16.0″ Acer CineCrystal WXGA TFT display at a 1366 x 768 resolution, 320GB SATA HDD, Intel GMA 4500MHD, 105-key keyboard, integrated Super-Multi optical drive, and Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium.

The processor performs well, 4GB of RAM run well with Vista OS (which is quite good after the updates), 320GB of storage is enough, this is not a gaming laptop so the graphics card is not important although you can play some great games, everything looks good on this bright display, the optical drive is average and it makes a lot of noise, while the keyboard is Acer-like and that’s very good.

The Acer Aspire Core 2 Duo 16″ Notebook comes packed with 5-in-1 multimedia card reader, VGA port, HDMI port w/HDCP, WLAN 802.11a/b/g/Draft-n, Ethernet RJ-45 LAN, V .92 RJ-11 modem, Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR, 3 x USB 2.0 port, built-in stereo speakers, built-in stereo microphones with beam-forming, echo-cancellation and noise suppression, 3.5mm headphone jack (but you can also plug a pair of speakers), microphone jack, line-in port, multimedia controls, and a four-way touch-pad with scroll button.

In the connectivity area the Acer Aspire AS6930-6067 or AS6935-6194 Core 2 Duo 16″ Notebook stands in very well. WiFi is a must, Blueooth and the USB ports as well, the Ethernet connection is welcome at home, and the touchpad gives a really nice feeling, it’s just … so soft.

Acer Aspire AS6930-6067 or AS6935-6194 Core 2 Duo 16″ Notebook measures 15.2″ x 10.9″ x 1.6-1.7″, and it weighs 7.5 lbs while carrying a 6-cell Li-ion battery. The notebook is not very small, but this was in favor of the 16-inch screen, and it’s not too lightweight either as it comes packed with a long spec list. The battery is not that good as it provides only 2.5 hours of battery life.

One of my colleagues reviewed this beauty quite a while ago, but I wanted to do it once again as I thought that the battery life is just too short. Well, he was right. The good thing about this laptop is that it is very cheap.
