Acer Aspire 9920G
Acer's newest desktop replacement notebook is the Aspire 9920G, a 20-inch model which should already be on sale in some European countries. Aside from its screen size, the principal attractions are its media features, which include an HD DVD drive and a TV tuner, along with a 512MB GeForce 8600M GT videocard. Buyers have a choice of 2 or 2.2GHz Core 2 Duo processors, while memory defaults to 2GB of RAM and 160GB of hard drive space. Other highlights include 802.11a/b/g/n wireless, a 5-in-1 card reader and an ExpressCard 54 slot.
Notably, the system is restricted in that it does not have an HDMI port, instead relying on DVI and VGA connections; this limits maximum resolution when connected to a TV. Likewise, the screen has a native resolution of 1680x1050, below the 1080p threshold. The 9920G is priced at €1,499 ($2,142). [via Notebook Italia]
