Pros

The Acer Aspire 8930g-7665 has a powerful processor that allows for the glitch-free use of heavy applications such as Adobe Photoshop. Many have had difficulties with running Vista on their laptops but the Acer Aspire 8930g-7665 can handle the load without any major issues.

We’d like to give a nod to the designer of the Acer Aspire 8930g-7665, which is built with two hard drives. Not many laptops have this feature and for sure, users who are into downloading or those who would have to archive numerous files would like this laptop. The average user is likely to find the 500 Gigabyte pre-installed hard drive sufficient but having the option to add more space is comforting to know.

In addition, the Acer Aspire 8930g-7665 has a video graphics card that any gamer would be satisfied with.

Cons

The Acer Aspire 8930g-7665 heats up rather quickly. This happens even more intensely during gaming wherein the laptop is processing a high amount of information. Even when engaged in simpler games, the video card tends to raise the temperature much.

Conclusion

The Acer Aspire 8930g-7665 is not for gamers due to the problem with video card heating. However, for most other processing tasks, this laptop does a wonderful job. Business applications can be accomplished at amazing processing speeds. Other tasks that this laptop is extremely capable of doing include browsing, playing music, watching movies, and office tasks. If these are all that you need to do on your laptop, then you won’t go wrong with this purchase.
