Acer launches a couple of notebook Aspire Gemstone Blue series: 8920G and 6920G. Both are premium class notebook which equipped by high definition screen and blu-ray player. Looking at tapping into the higher-end market, the company recently unveiled its ‘Gemstone Blue’ range of laptops, which is primarily aimed at the mid-level and desktop replacement segments. Acer is offering a few innovations in this range, such as 16:9 aspect LCD panels, Blu-ray drives, and a new touch panel for multimedia management. Named blue because of its body design which covered by blue, black, and silver color scheme and accompanied by exterior light effect. On the other side, blue color becomes blu-ray symbol.

The 6920G is without doubt a step up. It sports a glossy top panel and a well-designed (though highly reflective) LCD panel. The area around the LCD panel is of a similar glossy nature as the lid. The area next to the keyboard is unique to the new series. Just above the keyboard is a huge speaker grill that forms the basis of the new Dolby 2.0 speaker system. The left side of the piano is occupied by the new CineDash Media Console, which Acer has introduced with this series.

As addition, buyer can choose Nvidia GeForce 9650M GS or 9500M GS graphic card. Both is supporting high definition content and made in Microsoft DirectX 10 graphic technology, which presents exclusively with Windows Vista. This notebook is also accompanied by integrated TV tuner and integrated six speaker and supports Dolby Home Theater technology.
