Reviews for the Acer Aspire 6920G-814G32Bn
The New Middle-Class. Nearly all details were changed with the introduction of the new compact multimedia notebooks by Acer. Packed in a new distinctive Gemstone Blue design, equipped with a 16 inch 16:9 aspect ratio display, and up-to-date hardware, it should, according to Acer, stand as a reference for 'ultimate entertainment'. Therefore, it is furthermore equipped with a Blu-Ray drive and a Dolby certified sound system.
The Acer Gemstone Blue series has one of the coolest designs we have seen in our office in quite a long time. The attention to detail is astounding, especially with the screen cover where you realize the color isn't a solid blue, but instead a smooth transition to a lighter color towards centered Acer logo. Even the screen hinges weren't overlooked, with the chrome accents and inner blue LED lighting when plugged in. While our review model lacked HDMI out and a Blu-ray drive, it still handled downloaded HD content (720P) and DVD movies just fine. The built-in subwoofer performed well, but covered up the anemic audio that the main drivers put out. For the going price of $899 this notebook configuration is a lukewarm deal, but if you find it on sale for $699 (which we have seen) it turns into a great deal for all that you get.

Maybe it's because I'd never seen one on a laptop, but there's something seductive about a 16-inch widescreen—the way movies, especially high-definition ones, look when stretched out in the same fashion as in a movie theater. The Acer Aspire 6920G-6071 ($980 street) sits between a conventional 15.4-inch and a 17-inch media center laptop. Not only is the Acer Aspire 6920G-6071 the first to incorporate a 16-inch widescreen, it's also the first to bundle a Blu-ray drive for under $1,000.

In recent months, Acer has released a range of affordable media centres under its Gemstone brand. The Aspire 6920G-6A4G25Mn (£699 inc. VAT) is an entry-level offering that combines high-performance graphics and great usability. The chassis is designed by BMW Designworks. It has a unique, high-quality style, but may not suit all tastes. Build quality is outstanding.

Acer's new range of Gemstone computers is a little shinier than the previous models, and there's one major difference in screen size. While most notebooks come are either 15in or 17in widescreen models, the new Acers use 16in and 18in screens instead. The company says this is going to become more common but for now they're the first such products we've seen. The 6920, available through Comet, has a 16in screen and an Intel Core 2 Duo T5750 processor, which runs at 2GHz, along with a generous 3GB of memory. A good all-round computer with potential for gaming

The Aspire 6920G really impressed us. It looks great, sounds great and has a good screen. It also offers up muscular performance from both the processor and graphics chip. If you're on the market for an attractively priced desktop replacement that can take care of your entertainment needs, it's definitely worth serious consideration.

Acer Aspire 6920G, as representative of new Gemstone Blue series, deserves all our praises. Attractive design and good performances are very nice combination. Because of its dimensions it is not likely that this model will be considered by users searching for mobility. On the other side users who seek notebook that can take role of home multimedia center will be more than satisfied with Acer Aspire 6920G.

Acer's Aspire 6920-6422 is one of the best notebook options out there for those looking at a high performance notebook that also has true high defition media support. The problem is that this system is very large making it much more difficult to carry around and it is a fairly expensive system.

The look of the Acer Aspire 6920G-603G25Bn is definitely a love/loath design and as much as we didn't like it, there is no denying this is a great notebook for the price. Acer has been bold with the design and as a result has delivered an impressive machine.

An entry-level media laptop with a Blu-ray drive at a great asking price. Acer is in the process of trying to change its perceived brand value. No longer does it want to be seen as simply offering bargain-priced laptops, but also more high-end brands. The easiest way to achieve this aim is to release something a little different and the Acer Aspire 6920G-603G25Bn (£900 inc. VAT) is certainly that.

The Acer Aspire 6920 is a capable entertainment laptop in a smart, attractive package. The 16in display makes it slightly more portable than a 17in desktop replacement machine, and the inclusion of Blu-ray makes it great for watching HD content.

NVIDIA GeForce 9500M GS: Middle class GPU that ist about 10% faster than a similar clocked GeForce 8600M GT graphics adapter. Therefore, the card does not deliver enough performance for very high details with DirectX 10 effects of demanding games like Crysis.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
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.
T8100: Former mid-range Core 2 Duo based on the Penryn core that features FSB800 and VT-x virtualization functions.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
