Acer Announces HD-DVD Laptop


Recommended Posts


Acer is going all out with its new Core Duo based Aspire 9800 notebook. While the Aspire 9800 has some impressive hardware specifications to justify its estimated $2,600 price tag, the one feature garnering the most attention is its optional HD-DVD drive. This would make it the second announced HD-DVD notebook after the Qosmio G30. For one thing, it comes with a massive 20.1" TFT LCD display. Powering the 20.1" display is a GeForce Go 7600 GPU backed up with 256MB of dedicated graphics memory. Read more.

Its sad that won't do proper 1920x1200.

HD-DVDs should support 1920x1080 at 24 FPS progressive or something, wouldn't get full quality on that 20 inch screen.

The first person to find a 20.1 inch WUXGA (or higher) that will work in this gets a cookie. :)

A 20.1" display with only WSXGA+ (1680x1050) screen that is terrible.

The pixels will be lego block sized, this size LCD on a laptop needs WQXGA (2560x1600) with dual DVI out for the Dell or Apple 30" external monitor support.
