My First Laptop

Ladies and gentlements...

The moment that you all have been waiting for...

Weighing at 7.7 pounds. With a record of product design award 2009, IT Reviews award and Trusted Reviews award. The most elegance turbo-charged laptop in the world:


I've always dream to have a laptop because its mobility but one thing laptop lacks is their performance - I'm into gaming. The only laptop I knew which has incredible performance is the Alienware gaming laptops but sadly (as i know) it's not available in the Sarawak market yet.

As my desktop's motherboard going kaput again for the 2nd time I've decided to get a new computer. It has served me for 5 years and it's fair to replace it with a new one because you know nowadays technology grows rapidly.

After deciding a laptop as the successor of my desktop replacement, I went to Wisma Saberkas to look for the possible candidates and found this flashy machine on the shelf obviously outshone the other laptops.

Attracted by its look, I went to examine its specs to see what this machine offers. I was amazed and overjoyed, beholding this strong performing machine, at last I found the successor.

I was so sure that I'll gonna buy it, but it's more wise to wait for a period before making the big purchase. I did some research in the internet and was satisfied with the reviews. I also browsed for other high performance laptop available in the market  but none can compare with what Aspire 6935G has offered.

I've waited for more than two weeks for the big purchase and it was really rewarding. Not just I can browse around and do some research on the laptop reviews, the latest version has just entered into the market. In other word, it means more upgrades and more power but with the same price as the older version.

Let's see what's under the hood:
  • Genuine Windows Vista Home Premium
  • Intel Core 2 Duo processor P8600
    (2.4GHz, 1066MHz FSB, 3MB L2 cache)

    - Previously was Intel Core 2 Duo processor P8400
    (2.26GHz, 1066 MHz FSB, 3MB cache)
  • 500GB SATA Hard drive
    - Previously was 320GB.
  • 3GB DDR3 RAM
    - Previously was 2GB DDR2 RAM
  • Mobile Intel PM45 Express Chipset
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GT with up to 2303MB of TurboCache graphic card (512MB of dedicated GDDR3 VRAM, up to 1791MB of shared system memory)
  • 16" Full HD 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution Acer CineCrystal 8ms High-Definition respose time LCD
  • HDMI (High-Definition Multimedia Interface) with HDCP (High-bandwith Digital Contect Protection)
  • Blu-ray Disc Drive
  • Optimized 2nd Generation Dolby Home Theater audio enhancements
  • Two built-in stereo speakers and one Acer Tuba CineBass booster
  • True 5.1 channel surround audio output
  • Integrated Acer Crystal Eye webcam
  • Integrated Bluetooth 2.0+EDR
  • Integrated 56Kbps modem & 10/100/1000 Mbps LAN
  • Intel Wireless WiFi Link 5100/5300 (dual-band quad-mode 802.11a/b/g/Draft-N)
  • Acer Bio-Protection fingerprint solution
  • 6-in-1 card reader supporting SD, MMC, MMC Plus, MS, MS Pro and xD
  • 8-cell Li-Ion Battery Pack (3.2 - hours battery life)
  • 4 USB ports, VGA port, ExpressCard/54 Slot, HDMI port with HDCP support, Consumer infrared (CIR) port
  • Acer Xpress VoIP phone
  • Acer Empowering Technology
And also accompanied by these crappy free gifts worth of RM199:
  • Mouse
  • Cooler pad
  • 8GB Pendrive
  • Headset
  • Mickey Mouse MP3 player
But I demanded a better and worthy free gifts so in exchange I have to sacrifice some of the other gifts and bagged:
  • LEXMA Laptop backpack worth RM199
  • AVF infrared mouse worth RM 39
  • AVF Gold Series Headphone worth RM69

One thing you won't believe is that this incredible machine came with an excellent price. A lower than expected price tagged of: RM4499

No doubt it is still expensive but it really worth the cash, with all the High-End and High-Definition features it offers, I can't complain. Imagine how much would this monster cost if it is DELL, HP, ASUS or Alienware?

What if I didn't wait for a period before the purchasing of this laptop and just rush on?
  1. I might buy other models that are more expensive that came up with lower specs.
  2. I won't be able to play High-End games.
  3. I might not experience Blu-ray technology on my laptop.
  4. If I bought the earlier version: Less specs.
  5. I might won't get a better deal of free gifts.

Thanks mate. The idea of me buying this High-End laptop is to not worry a lot on future upgrades. Not like the desktops where you can just replace its components easily.

@Marcella Raymond
Yea, because laptops are portable so it's easy to do your assignments anywhere.

"alls: speechless...=.=' i wan a desktop..u wan a laptop..lets exchange bah..."

Of course I would prefer a desktop than a laptop, but my top priority is "portability". What I can do to satisfy my needs on "portability" and "performance" is to look for a high performance laptop.

speul said...

i guess it's the most preferred choice of a purchase considering the specs and the long term use. unlike desktop, laptops are very hard to upgrade and what you have here should stay for a while...

Elisha said...

The laptop might probably still can cope with the technology introduced 5 years later.
