There are different kinds of consumers in the notebook market. Some people prefer laptops that are smaller, thinner, and more portable. Other people can’t live without the larger display and they’re willing to lug around something bigger as a result. Acer wants to accommodate both sets of desires.
Acer has officially added two new laptops to its Aspire line and the two could not be more different. The Aspire 3935 is small and nimble, whereas the Aspire 8935G is big and burly. The choice, of course, is yours.
Starting with the Acer Aspire 3935 (top), you get a 13.3-inch 16:9 display, 3G of RAM, 2.0GHz Core 2 Duo processor, DVD burner, 802.11n Wi-Fi, 250GB HDD, touch-sensitive hot keys, webcam, biometric fingerprint scanner, and a digital card reader. Tipping the scales at 4.1 pounds, the Aspire 3935 retails for $900 and is available now.
The Acer Aspire 8935G (bottom) is clearly the bigger of the two with its huge 18.4-inch Full HD Acer CineCrystal LED display. Other notable specs include the Core 2 Duo processor, ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4670 graphics, 4x Blu-ray Disc writer, Crystal Eye web cam, 802.11n Wi-Fi, fingerprint scanner, and a backlit keyboard. The 8-cell battery should provide quite a bit of juice, but be prepared to lug around 10.1 pounds of computing. Acer has not yet announced pricing and availability for the Aspire 8935G.
