Desktop Replacement Face-Off: Acer Aspire 8920G vs. HP Pavillion HDX

We at LAPTOP just love us some face offs. Just a few days ago we pitted the Asus Eee PC 701 vs. the Asus Eee PC 900 in a knock-down drag-out brawl, and last week the Sprint and Verizon versions of the BlackBerry Curve 8830 threw up the cuffs. Today’s bout? The Acer Aspire 8920G vs the HP Pavillion HDX in a battle for multimedia supremacy. Both machines offer gorgeous displays, Blu-ray drives, and discrete graphics, but like Highlander, there can only be one. Check out the video below to see which machine came out on top.

    Your review is perfect, but i already chosed to go with the Aspire because i resenlty joined the university and i cared more about the portability for my confort cuz i was goin to buy the Aspire 18″ and i regreted cuz it wouldn’t fit in my backpack. ;p
    i know i lost a lot of work space even if i had a heavy laptop but it seem both of them (HDX & Gemstone)are just perfect..
    Theres an other way to have a big screen like extend my view to my HD T.V, although i will work at home.
