It's uncommon to see a notebook debut that has both lots of features and a good price. Acer has unveiled a new notebook called the Aspire AS8940G-6865 that offers both things. The machine has a massive 18.4-inch LCD with full HD 1920 x 1080p resolution.




The notebook also offers a Blu-ray drive that can burn CD and DVD media for movie night. The machine uses an Intel Core i7 Quad 720QM processor and runs Windows 7 Home Premium. That speedy quad-core processor will make short work of most any media task you can throw at the machine.


Other features include NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M graphics, five speaker sound system, 500GB of storage and 4GB of RAM. The machine also has touch-capacitive media control keys, five USB ports, HDMI out, and an eSATA port. Power comes from an 8-cell lithium-ion battery. Acer is asking $1,349.99 for the machine which is a very good price considering the feature set.
