  1. Like most major PC vendors, Acer has announced a fresh batch of machines with Intel's Sandy Bridge processors, including a new flagship notebook, the 18.4-inch Apsire AS8950G-9839. Acer's new premium offering features the latest silicon from both Intel and AMD, pairing the 2GHz (2.9GHz with Turbo Boost 2.0) Core i7-2630QM with the ATI Mobility Radeon 6850 2GB.

    For Acer thats pretty nice, Although no USB 3.0 was mentioned, the blu-ray drive coupled with that screen is a nice touch.
     
  4. Does Acer have a deal to not compete with HP? By them not adding a mini display port to utilize the AMD Eyefinity and USB 3.0, this is their 5th model I7's ethos without it.
