Acer | Aspire 8920-6432 | Laptop Review

Been busy at work and still out of the country, anyway I recently bought myself a new laptop, and have been using it for almost a month now and now I'm going to do a quick review of it, this time I got myself an 18"Acer Aspire 8920 Gemstone Blue series laptop from Best Buy, I know its not mobile friendly and not practical it is heavy around 9 pound, but the laptop cost me $1100 including taxes so I think Acer Aspire 8920 is a very good laptop for my money, anyway I find the feel of the laptop to be solid, it made of plastic but very good quality plastic, I don't see/feel any flex when I try to lift the laptop using 1 hand, the LCD screen feel solid when opened and not flimsy at all, the screen is bright, large and beautiful, this is the first time I use an 18" laptop and I might not go back to a smaller one hehe.. when you open the laptop you will immediately notice the full keyboard on it which also feels solid, the sound on this laptop is great, anyway I find this laptop worth my money and would recommend it to anyone who doesn't mind the weight and the size, I was able to play Gears of War on low to medium setting, Spore and Titan Quest on high settings without problems, the only thing I would complain is that this laptop doesn't have blutooth and its really difficult to find a bag that would fit specially backpack, anyway if your looking for a bag for Acer Aspire 8920 buy the Targus City gear messenger bag, it will fit Acer Aspire 8920 perfectly.
