Acer Aspire 8920G 18.4in laptop

Does a video-friendly 16:9 screen make any real difference?

Application security programs and practises

Reflecting its status as the flagship machine in Acer’s consumer line-up, our review model featured a high-end Intel Core 2 Duo T9300 processor. It’s a 45nm 'Penryn' chip running at 2.5GHz and provides enough performance for all but the most demanding users.

You’ll find 4GB of memory included as standard, although 1GB of this is made redundant by the use of a 32-bit version of Windows Vista Ultimate, which is only capable of recognising 3GB. Storage space comes in the form of two 320GB hard drives, configurable to suit your storage or backup needs.

An overall score of 5426 in our PCMark05 benchmark is above average for a regular laptop, and we found the OS booted quickly and ran largely without trouble during the time we spent with the Aspire.

The Aspire is one of the first laptops with an Nvidia GeForce 9M-series card that we’ve had the opportunity to test extensively. It’s a GeForce 9650M GS chip, which replaces the GeForce 8700M GT. With 512MB of dedicated GDDR 3 memory and 32 processing cores, it bestows the Acer with performance not far off previous-generation gaming laptops.
