Reviews for the Acer Aspire 8935G

85% Review Acer Aspire 8935G Notebook | Notebookcheck
Something of everything. With the 8935G Acer presents an excitingly equipped multimedia notebook in the 18"inch format. For the price of 1500 euro there's a lot to be found. Beside the Q9000 Quad-Core CPU by Intel, as well as an ATI Mobility Radeon HD4670 as core components, there is a Blu-Ray Disc Drive and a 1080p FullHD Display. These Components seem to give the laptop a rather wide range of possible uses. Read now, how the multimedia laptop proves itself in use.

A fantastic all-round media centre with a stunning 18.4" screen and no real flaws. Some great widescreen laptops have come from Acer's Aspire range over the years, and the Aspire 8935G-744G50Bn continues this trend – providing an outstanding screen, great features and good all-round capabilities. We really like the Aspire 8935G. Offering one of the best screens we've seen to date and great usability, it's truly an excellent home media centre.

Acer's Aspire 8935G is the latest model from the company's multimedia range, offering a great mix of power and features at an impressive price. If you're on the lookout for a media centre laptop, then the Acer is well worth a shot. The screen matches the very best on the market, and the rest of the laptop also stands up well under scrutiny. With a powerful graphics card, decent quality, loads of features, it's a good all-rounder. Just don't plan on taking it on the daily commute.

In all fairness, the Acer Aspire 8935G isn't really an update to the Aspire 8930G than say, a newer model. The 8935G improves on a lot of the design aspects found on the 8930G while maintaining much of the feel of the Aspire series. Acer has also used ideas from some of its newer designs like the Timeline series, e.g. the chiclet keyboard and successfully implanted it onto the 8935G. The keyboard feels just right on the notebook and brings to it a much needed elegance.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670: Higher clocked version of the Mobilty HD 4650. Supports the Avivo HD technology. The performance of the cards depends on the used type of memory (DDR2, DDR3, GDDR3 possible) and should lie somewhere between the desktop HD 4650 and 4670.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core 2 Quad: Mobile version of the desktop Quad Core processor. Due to low clock rates it is not recommended for most applications.


Slow clocked quad core CPU (4 cores) that suffers especially in many games from the low clock speed. Therefore, not suited for games and only for highly multi threaded applications.

18.4": 18 inch display size is a rare and very big size for desktop-replacement laptops. Laptops with 18 inch displays did not exist before 2008. The DTR-laptops can't be carried easily, need much energy but on the other side texts can be read easily and high resolutions are no problem. DTR mainly are intended for stationary usage on desks, where the weight and the energy need are unimportant.

4.6 kg: This laptop is heavy. Especially desktop replacements with 19 inch display fit in this class of weight. This class is too heavy, even for 17 inch DTR.
