Giant Aspire 8940G in the coffee shop

Say what you will about the Acer Aspire 8940G, it is one giant notebook. The 18.4-inch screen on this evaluation unit is as big as some external monitors on desktop systems, and the great audio / video components onboard make it a good multimedia laptop. In the video I show this big laptop, giving a brief walk around the device. It had to be brief as I couldn’t hold the 10+ lb. laptop up for very long. Take a look at this Acer, you’ll get a chance to see Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 running on a laptop. Hey, I couldn’t resist myself.

  1. Great review and what an amazing laptop!!! What is the price of the maxed out configuration of this laptop? And what are the maxed out specifications?

    1. 1999 euro

      8GB DDR3
      1 TB disc space

      :)

  2. What I was wondering is if it has a Blu-ray writer. I believe it has a Blu-ray reader but does it have a Blu-ray writer? Thanks.
