Acer's latest boasts full 1080p 16:9 display for Blu-ray playback

Acer Aspire 6920 01

Back in the day, a laptop’s resolution was a big deal. The transition from SVGA to XVGA screens was a big one, but now of course they come in all kinds of shapes and resolutions. And now that HD-DVD is dead and there’s a clear next-gen disk format standard you’ll be seeing a lot more Blu-ray enabled laptops this year. But what good is having an HD optical drive if your display can’t show movies at their highest resolution? Acer’s your bet.

Enter the Acer Aspire 6920-6422 notebook. Not only is it thin and light, it features a native 1080p 16-inch display so you can watch features at full HD resolutions. It’s also got 4GB RAM standard, a Core 2 Duo proc, and a generous 250GB HD.

It’s a thin monster, like an Olsen twin with HD, and we like it. It’s also not half bad looking.
