Acer Aspire 8930G – expensive laptop with 16:9 matrix
Category «huge household notebook» a rapidly growing and evolving. And not just this: they have a significant sustained demand.
A large building has its own technological advantages. First, a lot of room inside, can be competently and without stampede to deploy the components to make a great and effective ventilation and cooling. In a large building, you can insert a big keyboard with separate numeric stack, which is more convenient to work with. Finally, in the shell, you can put a big bright screen and place the large columns of good acoustics, which will significantly improve the multimedia functionality.
The main disadvantage, of course – a small portability, a great laptop is difficult to walk with. But on the other hand, home computers for most of the time spend in one place, on the table. Transport inside the apartment (for example, to make room on the table for something else or in the bedroom to watch movies) and occasionally take with you to the cottage. Therefore, low portability does not have a decisive influence on the choice.
Finally, recent conceptual change: increasing frequency of such notebooks were set matrix ratio is not 16:10, and 16:9, ie, with «cinema» resolution, which is used in film and digital television. I must say that watching movies with black bars top and bottom of the screen really much nicer.
Today we have to test the Acer Aspire 8930 – representative of the latest generation of laptops from the one of the leaders of the market. The laptop also aspires to a leadership role – and the design and performance, and functionality.
The body is solid with all the latest series of notebooks from Acer, the flagship of 8930 and it is certainly not an exception.
Generally, all the recent series of Acer notebooks are stylish, and a leader could not become an exception. In general, in the 8930 plan did not disappoint.
Proceedings of the shell matched healthy, well combined and glossy matte plastic, especially good looks fluted pedestal surface under the palm of your hand (besides, it is still functional – easy to work with the laptop). Of the minuses, I would note that the glossy lid gets dirty with fingerprints, and a frame around the screen is made glossy reflections and constantly at work, detracting from the screen (however, the screen flicker, too).
Appearance is also like a laptop. From the series into a series the design evolves. In the latest series Acer refused to light the keyboard, so that new materials and a laptop bought expensive and stylish look. Again, note the keyboard panel design, this is the best element of design, in my opinion. But as for the thick cylindrical insert between the body and lid, it doen not look fresh, now too many devices with a similar design.
By the way, despite the seemingly sturdy construction, laptop skripit if you take it in the hands (especially for the keyboard panel), although this is not the impression that the body does too flimsy. I do not know what will happen to them after a long operation. However, laptop, it will be subjected to such a rare strain.
Cover recline on the D-shaped loops, ie matrix is not very high above the cap table. Moves with a rustling cover and here is becoming frightening. Luft has a lid, but when the screen is not shaking.
