The Acer Aspire 8940 is a multimedia notebook released in November 2009 as a successor to the 8935. It maintains its predecessor’s 18.4” 1080p-compliant widescreen display with backlighting; 5.1-channel speaker system with speakers built directly into the chassis; and touch-sensitive media controls. The defining difference is the addition of a more powerful Intel Core i7 1.6GHz processor and a newer GeForce GTS 250M graphics card. Included also is 4GB of DDR3 memory, a 500GB SATA hard-disc drive, and either a BD or DVD player. Note also the HDMI output for transmitting content to a compatible HDTV, as well as the eSATA port for hooking up an external drive. Overall, the Aspire 8940 takes a slight step up from previous models in the Aspire series; it buffs up on specifications, while holding onto key 'peripherals'.

Additional Information

Additional Features include Draft N certified Wi-Fi, Acer’s Crystal Eye integrated camera, and a behemoth 8-cell Li-Ion battery with a 4800mAh capacity.
