A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Bad Despite its amazing office performance, the Acer Aspire Ethos 8943G can't match the best gaming systems when it comes to 3D performance. It's still capable of playing games, but you may have to tone down detail settings. It's also a huge laptop, and we wouldn't want to carry it further than the next room!...
Bottom line The Acer Aspire Ethos 8943G is more of a media laptop than an out-and-out gaming machine. With features including a Blu-ray drive and that amazing screen, there's a lot to like about it, but it's perhaps better suited to more casual gamers than their h...

Bottom line Acer’s done a good job with the Ethos – it looks great and performs well. Of course, the fast processor, large screen, Blu-ray drive and fancy design don’t come cheap, and many will baulk at the price tag Acer’s slapped on it. That said, it’s in line...

The Acer Aspire 8943G is a desktop replacement in an almost literal sense - you'll barely be able to see any desk behind it. A gigantic 18.4in display means the chassis measures 440mm across and weighs more than 4kg, so it's good for the occasional tri...
