Acer Aspire Gemstone Blue Notebook Series Rocks My Socks

Up until now, Acer’s laptops haven’t really excited me with the exception of the Ferrari line. I’ve always thought of their laptops as budget-minded offerings for people who don’t want to break the bank. The newly revealed Acer Aspire Gemstone Blue series of notebooks may still be pretty affordable, but they look great doing it.

The Gemstone Blue series is currently comprised of two models: Aspire 8920G and the Aspire 6920G. Both notebooks come with a Core 2 Duo processor, Vista Home Premium or Ultimate, up to 4GB of RAM, integrated webcam, biometric fingerprint reader, draft-N wireless, Bluetooth, and Acer Arcade Deluxe software. Wow, that’s quite a list!

The Acer Aspire 6920G gets a 320GB hard drive, 1X Blu-ray Super Multi dual-layer drive, a 16-inch LCD (what an odd size), and 512MB NVidia GeForce 9500M GS graphics. The 8920G steps it up with dual hard drives (up to 320GB each), a 2X Blu-ray Super Multi dual-layer drive, and a monstrous 18.4-inch HD screen to go with dedicated GeForce graphics. This one tips the scales at nine pounds.

Prices range from $900 to $2000 depending on your configuration. Look for both Gemstone Blue notebooks to ship next month.
