tchexxum, Ciao
4 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I bought the 8943G as my main computer, deciding not to go for a desktop due to the high spec of this laptop and the fact that I would need to work from a number of different locations.
  • Pros: Power, graphics, sound quality, versatility, amazing screen
  • Cons: Sooo big  -  heavy and tricky to use on the move .  Built - in mouse is glitchy

  • Summary: I bought the machine based on its huge spec - 16gb memory, 18.4in screen, 1920x display - so should be a top notch machine for development, games, movies. In practice, it has been a disappointment, constantly reminding me it's not quite working properly.
  • Pros: large screen, resolution, spec
  • Cons: glitches so machine doesn't live up to spec

Sammi79, Amazon
16 September 2011
  • Summary: I bought this laptop from Amazon roughly 1 year ago. The hardware it contains is impressive, albeit the cpu is a slow one ~1.6Ghz As others here have mentioned the major problems are :- 1) Eco-hard discs that cause regular 1-2 second freezes in pretty much every piece of software you might want to...

mjclark91, Ciao
22 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I have owned eight laptops in my lifetime and I can honestly say the the Acer Aspire 8943G is the best one I have ever owned. My current profession is that of a games designer and programmer. My skills are relied on to make games seem realistic and entertaining.
  • Pros: Stylish, powerful and affordable .   It works like a charm .
  • Cons: For me, none .   But for some the portability may be an issue (Keep in mind this is a media laptop)

Rubbish machine

Nigel James Beckett "NJBeckett", Amazon
24 June 2011
  • Summary: Definitely the worst computer I have ever had. Slow processor - 1.6 Ghz at the standard speed - slow hard discs - 5400 rpm - the wifi connexion stops working at least once a day. Even though I bought the version with 16 GB RAM I spend half of my life waiting for this machine to decide what it wants...

Essential Reading for this Acer model

Mr Big, Amazon
21 April 2011
  • Summary: The Hard drives have a design fault, which, at best causes them to spin down excessively & cause annoying delays & pauses whilst trying to work; at worst creates excessive noise likely to drive the average person insane.

  • Summary: After returning HP, Dell, Toshiba, I'm happy with this great laptop, it's very robust, fast and the screen resolution is magnificent. Fan is not so noisy as the Dell and Toshiba and touchpad is easy to click, not as the HP.
  • Pros: screen resolution, low noise, touchpad, volume control, speed
  • Cons: weight (well for a 18.4 lap can't complain)
