The Aspire 6930G is Acer’s Second Generation of the new 16:9 aspect ratio laptops. The Laptop comes with a long list of very impressive features and all at a reasonable price of around $900-$1000.
For starters let’s talk about the new innovative 16:9 aspect ratio. The new aspect ratio allows users to watch their favorite movies in full 1080p without adding any bars or cutting of any of the picture. The only downfall of this right now is some older games do not support the laptops native resolution and the 16:9 aspect ratio tends to bring up the price a little bit because it’s a newer item. Overall though you should really look to get the new display ratio because it makes watching movies and tv shows on Hulu a lot better experience.
The Aspire 6930G is also one of the better performing laptops you can find in today’s laptops. Depending on the model you can usually expect anywhere from a 2.0-2.4GHz Core 2 Duo CPU, 4GB of DDR2 Ram, and the best part is the 9600M GS Video Card. If you are looking for a laptop with a good dedicated Video Card you should really think about getting this one. The 9600M GS is not the greatest video card, but at this price you will be hard pressed to find a laptop with better graphics capabilities. The CPU and the RAM is nothing really new or impressive, but the fact is 4GB of RAM and a Dual Core CPU will be more than enough to run anything on your laptop.
The overall laptop design itself is very basic, but nice. Expect the normal fingerprints on the black glossy lid, also there have been complaints that the keyboard has to much flexing in it. Another really disappointing feature is the battery life on the Aspire 6930G with an average life of less than 2 hours. Overall this is a good laptop if you want to play any games on your laptop and it makes a good desktop replacement, but the short battery life will make you have to stay close to a power outlet.
