18.4-Inch Acer AS8940G-6865 Core i7 Laptop Goes Big

 18.4-Inch Acer AS8940G-6865 Core i7 Laptop Goes Big
Some people choose to buy a notebook for its portability. These are the kind of people that would likely value a 13-inch ultraportable subnotebook. The new Acer AS8940G-6865 is not for these kind of people. Instead, the 18.4-inch monster of a laptop is very much a desktop replacement machine and it has the horsepower to back it up.

Yes, it doesn’t have the most memorable of names, but the guts inside can speak for themselves. I wouldn’t recommend hauling this around from coffee shop to coffee shop all that much, but you should be able to outperform most smaller laptops with ease.

Featuring an 18.4-inch (1920×1080) display, the Acer AS8940G-6865 comes powered by a quad-core Intel Core i7 720QM processor, clocking in at 1.6GHz. Other highlights include the 4GB of DDR3 memory, NVIDIA GeForce GTS 250M GPU with 1GB of dedicated memory, 500GB SATA hard drive, Blu-ray/DVD burner combo drive, 8-cell battery, and Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit.

You don’t have to worry about connectivity either, since you get draft-N wireless, five USB ports, HDMI, eSATA, card reader, VGA, Dolby audio, and a touch-capacitive media control interface. Bear in mind that this Acer tips the scales at over 10 pounds.

Prepare to spend $1350 (and up) for this Acer beast.
