Let's be completely honest. You probably don't need a quad-core CPU in your laptop. But just in case you're one of those guys who needs to feel like you're keeping up with the desktop crew, Acer's gone and crammed a new Intel Core 2 Quad Mobile Processor Q9000 into the new Aspire 8930G laptop.
The company says, "utilizing four processing cores, 12MB of shared L2 cache, 1066 MHz Front Side Bus and clock speed rates up to 2.53 GHz, the Aspire 8930G-7665 brings unprecedented swiftness and realism to 3D games, which extreme users demand."
We say, we were already fans of the previous version, the Aspire 8920, which was one of the very first 18-inch laptops we got our hands on. The new model is only $1,799 with the Q9000, Blu-ray, and an Nvidia GeForce 9700 GPU, which means we'll probably like it, too -- despite the fact that pretty much no one really needs a quad-core laptop.
