    I'm more than happy with my 6935G no real issues with the actual computer. Just a few with vista (which i do like but its been alot of trouble recently.) :\

    AHhh i have the same problem! but with ethernet and Wifi! the ethernet just random freezes, and same with Wifi too. Can happen quickly or take a week or two. I tried new drivers but no luck, seems to take a little longer before it happens though.
    Also have random problem of webpages not loading first tires when someone is on other computer even though my download/upload speed is the same and other computer isnt doing anything ¬_¬

    You must uninstall completely your old driver until your wireless network hardware is shown as unknown hardware before installing the new driver.

    It seems there's a bug on the website, it duplicate the last message when clicking on QUOTE to answer. We write our answer but it's the last message that is posted. I could be able to write this because I've used "Quick Reply" method. Don't know who is the "modo" to contact to report this bug...

    Darika, thank you so much for posting this GREAT Review !
    You have really taken the time to actually post screenshots and better yet you actually sum up problems and solutions with URL's :)
    I don't care for a 'sterile' prefixed format, this is a more down to earth review that points out the issues that matter to most that buy such a notebook.

    Today i will be receiving my 6935-844G32BN (P8400/4GBDDR3/9600MGT/320GB)
    and this review gave me the much needed information so thank you from the otherside of this lonely planet.

    My Acer will come with the 32bit Vista and to be honest i'm a newby when it comes to Vista.
    I build my desktop almost 2 years ago with a serious and expensive configuration at that time and installed Vista 32bit Ultimate and at first it worked fine but after more and more nagging and bluescreens i transfered back to the good ol' XP which has proven Rock Solid.
    Hence, i have not returned to Vista since so i assume a lot has been done to improve it ?

    I'm also looking into Vista 64 bit otherwise my 4GB total memory hardly makes sense. On the otherhand i keep reading that the performance gains are very slim and do not outweigh the driver issues and other problems that come with Vista 64.

    Also i'm planning to run Win7 Beta on a seperate boot partition since that has impressed me a lot when i installed it on my 'old' Clevo D47V.
    So far it has been a blessing as far as driver installed is concerned (all goes automaticly) however the Clevo is kinda old and less sophisticated than the Acer so i'm expecting issues.

    Any experience with Win7 beta ont he 6935 ?

    Thanks again and keep up the good work !

    I too have the same model as wyald.. with the P8700 CPU. my GPU-Z is showing my 9600M GT as having 1024 MB DDR2 and not GDDR3.. further clocks are at 500 (core)/ 400 (Mem) like the DDR2 version.. is mine actually DDR2 or is GPU-Z incorrect? BTW Riva Tuner and Everest also show it as DDR2.. though the acer spec sheet mentions it as 1 GB GDDR3...

    Seeing that there are so many difference Cpu models i assume that replacing the CPU (for instance P8400 swapped by P9600) is a possibility ?
