The smaller brother to the Acer Aspire 8940, but from one extreme to the other and the horribly low resolution LCD is here again (as in the ASUS below)

This is ATI powered, but with the low res screen the GPU will be bored most of the time.

A good choice for those needing CPU power not showing of Movies or Graphics.
