Reviews for the Acer eMachines G420-401G12Mi

70% eMachines G420 review
Source: CNet English
It's pretty rare to find a laptop with a large, 17-inch screen available for under £300, but eMachines has just managed it with the G420. Our review model was supplied by Save on Laptops, where you can buy the machine for £299. The eMachines G420 offers a large, 17.1-inch screen for very little outlay, but the laptop's 1GB of RAM limits its multitasking capabilities.

The G420 is a very comfortable desktop replacement machine which ticks a lot of boxes. Portability doesn't happen to be one of them, but it impresses as a usable machine for all the family.

NVIDIA GeForce 9100M G: The GeForce 9100M G is an onboard graphics card that is based on the 9200M core (but without dedicated memory). Therefore, it supports PureVideo HD (VP3) to decode HD videos. In conjunction with dedicated 9x00M graphic cards the 9100M G supports GeForceBoost to enhance the performance. The combination with 9200M GS / 9300M GS is called GeForce 9400M.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Acer: The company was founded under the name of Multitech in Taiwan in 1976 and renamed to Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors and televisions. Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell also belong to the Group and sell their own laptops.

While Acer still had the third largest global market share in the notebook segment in 2008, it ranked 6th in 2016 with a market share of 6% after they had continuously lost market shares.

There are dozens of Acer laptop reviews per month, the ratings are average (as of 2016). Gateway, which has an own laptop line-up, has also belonged to the Acer Group since 2007.


75%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
