The processor inside this monster is the Intel Core i7-740QM processor. This is a quad-core processor with 8 operating threads.  Each core runs at 1.73 GHz but can rev up to 2.93 GHz with Intel’s Turbo Boost Technology. This is a 64-bit processor with 6MB of Intel SmartCache.  It’s built on a 45nm die and uses 45W. The notebook comes installed with 4GB  of DDR3 1066MHz memory, and can hold a maximum of 8GB.

The screen is an Acer® CineCrystal full HD 18.4″ (1920 x 1080) high-brightness (220-nit) TFT LCD.  It has a 16:9 aspect ratio and 8ms high-definition response time.  The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5850 graphics chip.  It has 1GB of dedicated DDR3 VRAM and has support for Microsoft DirectX 11.

For storage you get a 500GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM. The optical drive is an Integrated variable-speed Blu-ray Disc™ drive / Super-Multi drive combo.  For that little extra storage oomph you can use the 5-in-1 card reader which supports optional MultiMediaCard™, Secure Digital card, Memory Stick®, Memory Stick PRO™ or xD-Picture Card™ formats.

For networking you can use the Acer® InviLink Nplify network connection supporting 802.11b/g/n wireless LAN, Acer® SignalUp technology for enhanced antenna efficiency, and it’s WI-FI CERTIFIED™ . For those who love them some cables you can use the 10/100/1000 Gigabit LAN Ethernet adapter.  This laptop does have Bluetooth support.

External ports include DC-in, RJ-45 LAN, VGA, Headphones/speaker/line-out with SPDIF support, Microphone
Line-in, FireWire® (IEEE 1394), eSATA, HDMI™ (High-Definition Multimedia Interface™) with HDCP (high-bandwidth digital-content protection), CIR (consumer infrared)  and 5 USB 2.0 (four are functional when an eSATA device is plugged in).

The system comes installed with Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit Edition. Other software includes Microsoft Office Home and Student 2007 (60-day trial), Microsoft Works, McAfee Internet Security Suite (60-day trial), NTI Media Maker, Acer Arcade Deluxe, Acer eRecovery Management, and Acer Backup Manager.

The laptop measures 17.3″x11.6″x1.2″/1.7″ and weighs 10.1 pounds, so this is definitely a desktop replacement laptop and not one you want to carry around.  The 8-cell Lithium ion battery pack provides up to 3 hours of unplugged power.

You can find the Acer Aspire AS8943G-6190 laptop for around $1350.
