Acer rolls Aspire 8940 notebook with Core i7

Acer logoAcer chose a rare Monday evening launch for an update to its Aspire notebooks. Acting as the new flagship, the 8940 takes the lead from the 8935 and use the same 18.4-inch screen but with a much faster 1.6GHz Core i7 in place of the Core 2 Quad. It further brings considerably newer GeForce GTS 250M graphics to better drive the 1080p display and, as with other Acer updates, replaces Vista with Windows 7.

As a desktop replacement, it still touts the 5.1-channel speaker system and touch-sensitive media controls of the older Aspire but more aggressive specs overall to match its processor and graphics. Multiple trim levels should be available, but an example $1,350 model should come with a 4X Blu-ray burner, 4GB of RAM and a 500GB hard drive.

Acer is vague regarding ship dates but hopes to have the 8940 in stores before the holidays.
