Quad-core Acer Aspire

Acer has begun selling the Aspire 8930G-7665, its latest notebook. The system is notable for using Intel's new Q9000 processor, one of the first mobile Core 2 Quad models. The chipset runs at 2.53GHz, and features a 12MB L2 cache along with a 1,066MHz front-side bus. This supports the 8930G's main purpose as a gaming PC, though many games cannot yet take full advantage of a quad-core processor.

The system otherwise sports an 18.4-inch 1080p display, 4GB of primary memory, and a GeForce 9700M GT video card with 512MB of video RAM. It comes equipped with a 64-bit version of Windows Vista Home Premium, installed to a 500GB hard drive; other features include a Blu-ray/DVD combo drive, a six-in-one card reader, and 802.11a/g/n wireless. Retail pricing is approximately $1,800.
