Acer Aspire 8942G Unveiled Acer To Release World's First DX11 Notebook, Packs Core i7, 8GB DDR3

Acer isn't exactly a computer producer that makes high-end gaming
computers. Most of their offerings are aimed at the Enterprise business
user market, so when details hit today about Acer's plans to release the
world's first DirectX 11 gaming laptop, there was some surprise.
DirectX
is Microsoft's programming interface for PC games, and the upcoming
release of DirectX 11 and graphics cards that are capable of running
this new cutting edge tech has gotten some excited. Usually, it takes a
bit before you see such high-end devices in the notebook market.
The Acer Aspire 8942G will be a ripped gaming machine. The stats are as
follows: an Intel Core i7 clocked at 1.6GHz, 8GB of DDR3 and two 640GB
hard drives. Their DirectX 11 card is the ATI Radeon HD5850, which comes
with a whopping 1GB of VRAM. In case all that isn't enough for you, the
Aspire 8942G even comes stocked with a Blu-Ray drive, for more HD movie
viewing experience.
No details on the price or release date on this monster notebook, but
Fudzilla speculates on a January release date. I would imagine this
thing would easily cost in excess of $3,000. The bleeding edge isn't
cheap.
