  • Summary: The Acer Aspire Ethos 8943G is more of a media laptop than an out-and-out gaming machine. With features including a Blu-ray drive and that amazing screen, there's a lot to like about it, but it's perhaps better suited to more casual gamers than their hardcore brethren.

Acer Aspire 8943G

LAPTOP Magazine
3 August 2010
  • Summary: Aside from the wireless issue, the $1,599 Acer Aspire 8943G pleases with its combination of a clean, modern design and multimedia maven-pleasing features. Though the Toshiba Qosmio X505-Q890 is a better performer in the 18-inch category, it's less attractive and costs $1,899. If you're looking to save a little cash and don't need the extra power, the Aspire 8943G is a good choice.
  • Pros: Elegant uncluttered design, Comfortable keyboard, Dual touchpadmedia controller, Excellent graphics performance
  • Cons: Can't maintain a Wi-Fi Connection, Less expensive systems perform better, Narrow viewing angles, Glossy touchpad smudges easily
