    You know that benchmark is useless right. Unless you have tested with a proper GPU benchmark, comparing WEI isn't a good way to show that graphics is better.

    I only mention what I've noticed. That's what I wrote. Useless or not, this is the only thing I've noticed for now. I haven't ran any 3D Benchmark since I have Windows 7, so if I run it now, we won't know if there are any improvements. Anyway I will make a run soon to compare with the 3D MARK results I had from Vista.

    Hi,

    I've managed to enable VMX on my 6935G Intel T9400 model by following instructions on the following thread:

    http://marcansoft.com/blog/2009/06/enabling-intel-vt-on-the-aspire-8930g/

    Please proceed with caution!!! this is not for the faint of heart...

    UPDATE 15/03/2009 CONSOLE MEDIA PAD MALFUNCTION BUG

    The problem is about the console media pad. You can't interact with it by touching, looks like it's blocked, but stll be animated by windows itself.

    WHAT TO DO?
    Unplug the power supply and remove the battery for about 5mn.

    This bug exist since the 6920G model. Not a really big problem, but I was almost ready to bring my notebook to the service support. If you meet this bug, you know now you won't need to bring your notebook to the service support. /QUOTE]

    For me I just touch the "Acer Arcade" button (top right on the media console).
    It work botch in Vista x86 and XP x86 didn't try it under the x64 OS because I use my laptop for gaming primary and the 32 bit OS are good for me.
    Hope this will help, better solution than shuting down and removing battery ...

    As I promise, I've made new 3DMARK06 Benchmark under Windows 7 to compare with Vista 3DMARK06 Benchmark. I've also added Resident 5 Benchmark ;) This new test is also on the main page:)

    PERFORMANCES OF 9600M GT

    3D MARK 06 Score at native resolution 1366x768 is 5825. A bit more than Vista 64 bits which was 5690

    RESIDENT EVIL 5 BENCHMARK ON 6935G WINDOWS 7

    I've only ran the Directx 9.0C Test. I thought it was useless to test the Directx 10 Benchmark with this kind of GPU ;)

    You can see that you can play with good settings with this 9600M GT, I think this is not bad, and the graphics are still really nice.

    Very well written review! It has quite a good battery life and can handle games good. Nice laptop but I dislike the manufacturer :(

    I disliked this manufacturer before, because the low quality built of their product. But since the Gemstone model, they seemed to have change their building quality, and I think they have improved in quality. Anyway, if you still buy a cheap low cost notebook (at 300-400 euros) from any manufacturers, you may sure to have some problem in the future.

    The Gemstone was not so cheap but its price was more competitive than any other notebook at this time last year when we compared the specifications.

    The design was also quite attractive comparing to other notebook brand, and it's still have a nice design today.

    Now it's about a year that I'm using it and it runs perfectly well, and much better since I've installed Windows 7 :D

    Acer yesterday released SATA AHCI driver for Win7 x86/x64 on their website. As entries for Windows 7 have been added, hope they release drivers for the fingerprint reader too :)

    Can I install the generic Synaptics 14.03 driver from the Synaptics website on my 6935G? Will I lose some functionality if I do so?

    I've never installed Synaptics as I don't think it's useful for me.
