The Specs Say All

You may remember the Acer Aspire 8930G as a very powerful machine that wasn't too expensive given its hardware specifications. We last saw this mammoth notebook in our 18.4-inch Desktop Replacement (DTR) shootout last year and loved the machine for what it could do at that price point. This time around it's back with even better hardware, improved design and the usual Acer load of bloatware.

You may groan, but these bloatware are what helps to keep the price down somewhat. After all, did you think that a notebook with sterling specs such as an Intel Core 2 Quad Q9000, 4GB DDR3 RAM, 2x 500GB HDD, Blu-ray drive and ATI Radeon HD4670 is going to come cheap with no drawbacks? Thankfully, uninstalling the bloatware is but a simple albeit time consuming affair. Once you get that out of the way, the Aspire 8935G is one smokin' machine that kicks heavy butt.
