It seems to be raining HD-capable hardware around here at Tech2. Last week we reviewed 2 HD-ready monitors and this week it’s the Acer 6930, successor to the Acer 6920, that was unveiled earlier this year and marked the introduction of Acer’s Gemstone Blue range.
Let’s find out how it fares...
In a good move forward, Acer has decided to retain the basic layout and design from the 6920 down to the logo on the lid. The 6930 like its predecessor is quite a bulky laptop being a 16.4-inch affair with dimensions of 5.7 x 11.5 x 1.7-inches and weighing in at 3.3 kg. This makes the laptop rather large and perhaps one of the biggest machines available within its segment of being a sub-Rs. 50,000 machine.
Moving on, the keyboard/mouse area is one area where the 6930 finally stands out. Firstly the gimmick that was the “Acer Cinedash media console” seems to have mysteriously disappeared. This is a good move, as we felt that most laptops offer sufficient multimedia controls via the FN keys thereby eliminating the need of a dedicated media control center. The Cinedash media console while being an intriguing idea, swallowed up way too much space and this had resulted in the 6920 having one of the most oddly positioned set of keys we have seen anywhere in any laptop range.
