Acer 2930 small laptop

Acer 2930 small laptop

The Acer 2930 small laptop is an improvement over previous 2920 model. Available in black colour, it has stylish look and rugged build. Weighing 4.4 lbs and with outer dimensions of 12 x 9 x 1.65in, the laptop is compact and portable.

The lightweight laptop is powered by Intel Core 2 Duo Processor T5800 (2 GHz clock speed, 800 MHz Front Side Bus, 2 MB cache). The 2 GB DDR2 RAM main memory is enough to run Windows Vista Home Premium Edition operating system.

The display of 12.1 in TFT screen (1280×800 pixel resolution) is clear and bright. The full size keyboard and the tiny touchpad are comfortable to use. The graphics is not great and is not fit for high speed games. The optical storage is through DVD±RW Double Layer drive.

The external connectivity for this lightweight laptop is taken care of by Wifi 802.11 b/g, 10/100 Ethernet, and Bluetooth facility. Additional features include built-in speakers and integrated webcam, 3 USB 2.0 ports, Express card and expansion slots for storage. Optionally biometric sensor is available for increased security. The 3 cell Li-Ion battery lasts about 2.0 hours under normal usage which is one of the low points of this otherwise excellent small laptop.

In conclusion, the Acer 2930 lightweight laptop is good enough for every day functions like quick internet access, word processing etc. but is not suitable for high speed gaming.
