  1. During an Italian event today, Acer revealed a sleek new notebook range with an emphasis on multimedia performance, the Aspire Ethos. At this point, the company has only shown two models, the 5943G and 8943G, which measure 15.6 and 18.4-inches, respectively. The smaller system has a resolution of 1366x768, while the larger carries a full HD display.

    They are one of the only manufacturers that I'd consider buying a laptop from.

    Just a shame they're made soo poorly it would probably bend into a different shape from the heat coming out of these things! or better yet, knowing acer it will probably snap in transit to the shop to be brought. Unless they improve the quality in materials for their laptops I will never buy an acer.

    Although the pictures for these actually look like they may have created a decent laptop for the first time since ... ever.

    interesting. since acer releases its 5920 series, continued by 5930, 5935, 5940 and this 5943 i know it would probably be my target, as always.

    however i sort of like their touch panel thingy, why would they remove that.
  6. Have they included the new Cinavia DRM in their Blue Ray Player?

    7.26 and 10.12 lbs ??? What is this, 1990?
  8. Will that 18.4'' ethos support more than 4GB ?
    will it support RAID 0 ?
