Acer are obviously prepping a new gaming laptop. The new monster will come with an 1.6 GHz Intel i7 quad-core processor, 8GB DDR3 RAM and AMD HD5850 video with 1GB GDDR5 – all that promises full DirectX 11 support.
The amazing specs list continues with an 18.4-inch LED 1080p Full HD display, two 640GB SATA HDDs and a BluRay drive.
There is no info about the pricing just yet, but Aspire 8942G-728G1280TWN (thank goodness for copy/paste) will be surely priced at least twice as cheap as a similar spec’d Alienware mobile rig. Still that insane hardware, along with an 8-cell Li-Ion battery will weight about 4.6 kg, so as it seems mobility and gaming are hardly a good match.
The Acer Aspire 8942G-728G1280TWN should be released in the beginning of the 2010.
