80% Acer Aspire 2920 budget laptop
Source: Reg Hardware English
It’s the size of the Aspire 2920 that first catches your eye. Measuring in at 304 x 223 x 32mm, it’s not exactly a sub-notebook or MacBook Air, but the Acer is certainly on the smaller end of the scale. The 2.04kg weight suggests that the 2920 might find a home in your hand luggage when you go travelling. The Aspire 2920 is a decent compromise of weight, size and features. While it’s not perfect, the price makes it incredibly tempting.

Source: PC Advisor English
The Acer Aspire Gemstone 2920 would be suitable if you spend a lot of time on the road and need a machine to carry with you everywhere you go. It's powerful, provided you don't intend to play games and it's reasonably priced if you can put up with its lack lustre looks.

70% Acer Aspire 2920-302G25Mi review
Source: Techradar English
Overall impressions of the Acer Aspire 2920-302G25Mi are mixed. Build quality is largely good and we also liked the design, but this laptop is let down by the cramped keyboard. Although there are a good range of features for the price, it's no longer cutting-edge, and the poor screen also let it down.

Schnittiges Design
Source: PC Video - 2/08 English
Das ultrakompakte Notebook sieht nicht nur gut aus, sondern hat auch das Zeug zum mobilen Schnittstudio. Mit einem Preis von unter 800 Euro ist es zudem vergleichsweise preiswert. Aspire 2920 ist ein ebenso kompaktes wie leistungsfähiges und obendrein noch günstiges Notebook.

Acer reviews


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) X3100 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on a Mobile Intel 965GM chipset. It is the successor of GMA 950 and features a fully programmable pipeline (supports Aero Glass fully and DirectX 10 with newest drivers). The peformance of the X3100 is clearly better than the GMA 950, still demanding modern games won't run fluently.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


12.1: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.1 kg:

These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


75.7%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
