    You'll most likely need Win7 version of the drivers and software. Not sure if the Vista version would be compatible.

    ACER has released the LaunchManager (Application Tab) to manage the Empowering Technology since October 23rd. I haven't tested it yet, but it must solve the compatibility problem when using the one for Vista.

    There is a Acer Aspire 6920 for sale. The owner says it is less than a year old. I have seen the system and it looks quite good. However, I wanted to know if there are thing I should consider and check before buying it.

    Secondaly, there is also Acer Aspire 6935g laptop for sale. I saw on the acer website and it says it has 512 MB dedicated graphics but the website from which could be buying it says it has 256 MB dedicated graphics. Here is the link to the site: http://www.dixons.co.uk/martprd/sto...u=587418&page=Product&fm=null&sm=null&tm=null

    Looks like it is a mistake but would like to hear from you.

    Finally i wanted to know if this is the forum you be most active on or what. I tried to email you at Darika@notebookreview.com but i got message failure so this was the only way to contact you. would be nice if you could let me know your IM id or email.

    Thank You

    Hey Vanquisher i think u shud go for the 6935g its a really good machine and my opinion is u go for it rather than the 6920. but, thats my opinion. Ive bought the same refurbished system from Currys (Currys, Dixons and PC World have the same laptop listings as they come under one group bla bla). The specs on the 6935G are the same as listed on the website and for ure info the graphics card has a dedicated 512mb for the graphics card, says on the website as well " * 16" Full HD WXGAG8 * Blu-Ray with DVD ReWriter Optical Drives * 512 dedicated up to 1791mb Graphics * Wireless Enabled * Gloss Black Colour"... i think its a good buy at the price but u shud know that i u only get the laptop and charger kit in the box nothing else, whereas if u buy the laptop as new it comes with a media centre remote, the usual manuals and i think a DVB-T antenna...lemme know if u have anymore enquiries...cheers

    Dear darika,

    you are really a very good observations on 6935g. i want to ask a questions.

    can we upgrade it's processor after warranty end because it's coming with 2.0 can we put 2.6or something better processor on it??


    and my 2nd question is that can we upgrade it's memory DDR2 to DDR3 ???

    and is there any problem is coming in it like heating problem stuck because i am a designer and i have to use adobe corel etc for near about 20 hours per day.

    i am asking that i am going to buy this machine.


    is this better then dell, hp ?????



    thanks for your help to new comers.

    No you cant upgrade from DDR2 to DDR3 because of the different motherboard.

    boska its not the best idea to think about upgrading as that is a bit tricky especialy if u plan on doing it yourself and like Eugene91 mentioned some components may not be compatible. its best to buy as high specced a machine u can if possible.. look up this thread some more info. The two laptops that u linked to are good in their own right, the HP mini is a totally different league but the Dell Studio XPS 16 (hope these are the ones that u linked) has a bit more classy looks i think...but ive read about it overheating, whereas the ACER does much better....i also think the graphics card on the Dell isnt as good as the ACER...pricewise the ACER is a better buy and from the reviews u can see that the 6935g is a good solid buy...

    Well if you want to know if u can upgrade the processor then well u can, but there is a limit to it. As in u can only upgrade to a maximum C2D 2.8 GHz cpu for the 6935G due to the motherboard (anything above that 'may' have compatibilty issues) and also its not easy to get the cpu changed u will have to find the right person for the job.
    In my opinion Dell's are thought to be better machines by consumers than ACER's...this may have been the case before but ACER has come a long way in terms of reliability and quality and well DELL has and is still considered a pretty good machine....if u wnt to decide between both then u have to look at the specifications of the laptops that u want to buy and the price. For me the 6935G was good for my money and i got it way cheaper than the DELL Studio Xps 16....so in the end it is up to u to decide bcos i think both machines are about the same (except for a few odd differences).
    Well i've had my 6935G for about 3 months now and thankfully i have had no problems and no overheating. I do play quite a bit of gaming in my free time (when i get it) and the laptop keeps warm at the most even if u play for a few hours.
    Well i think ure friend is wrong in that, because seriously i have never bought aN ACER before and i had the same opinion like him before i bought this 6935G and well now i think the opposite. I think the 6935G is a really good machine, you wont be dissappointed. Also ACER last month became the 2nd largest computer seller in the world (in the US as well) which speaks volumes on their success.
    Look around for more laptops if u arent satisfied it took me almost 10 months to make a decision, and the release of Windows 7 is bringing more newer latops to the market so u can always look at those. let me know if u have any more questions. always a pleasure to help. cheers.

    If you ask me, you should try to find faster 6935G version (if you can afford it, but difference in money shouldn't be so big).
    Just look at my specs down, it has faster processor and 4gb ddr3 memory, and i must say im super happy with it. (i even dont shut it down for 2-3 days, and i never had problems with it)

    @boska: i see!! so which country are you in...from my experience i know tht in some countries you will not be able to get all the configurations of a system...if u tell ure country maybe we can tell u a site that delivers over there...and well the packaging of the latop is quite decent and there are minimal chances of breakage

    Beside Acer gaming series, I think there is Acer Aspire 5542 15.6" NB with great balance of performance and cost, it definitely meet general user who using in daily business/ home assigment, but play game occassionally!

    Just found there is special offer on Mwave, check this link:

    yeah,in my opinion i used to think that acer pc sucks big time,but after getting my 1st acer,i'm proud to bring it everywhere,because i know it's a great pc.and this new generation of acer is well balance in performance and cost.just look at most of the spec and the price,sometimes ppl say,things are cheap for a reason,yes low quality,but for me,acer is just being cost friendly just to meet general user who is using it daily for work.so if u are planing to get an acer,give it a try,plus thier customer service is supurb!

    I totaly agree with you :)
    for tutorials use google, heres one i found, so check it out: http://www.engadget.com/2009/08/11/how-to-install-windows-7-and-live-to-tell-about-it/

    and clean install means formating your hard disk (at least partition with os) and installing windows on it. Theres also option of upgrading your current OS to Win7, but im not sure is it possible to update from 32bit vista to 64bit Win7. So check it in link above.
