Acer Aspire 3935 Review – Looks Can Kill!

If you are planning to buy a stylish new notebook or laptop, take a look at the Acer Aspire 3935. It’s sleek and polished design truly justifies that ‘Looks Can Kill’. What’s more – it offers excellent performance and a very impressive battery life as compared to most of its competitors in the sub £500 laptop category.

The Acer Aspire 3935 is barely one inch in thickness and the well polished bronze chassis adds another dimension to its killer looks.
However, the Acer Aspire 3935 does have some weaknesses – Mediocre Graphics, no HDMI or eSATA ports, no other output format except VGA, a Wimpy Touch Pad and a rather average Gaming Performance. It is clearly not a gaming delight if compared with the Dell Studio XPS 13 or the HP Pavilion dv3z. The Acer Aspire 3935 is an absolute treat for Web Surfing, General Office Usage and Media Playback.

The Bottom Line – gorgeous looks, not for gamers but otherwise great value for money! You can get it for £449.97 from which has been reduced from an original price of £904.21
