Acer Aspire 8920 review: Acer Aspire 8920

Acer includes an impressive three-year parts-and-labor warranty with the system. The technical support phone lines are open only Monday through Friday from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. PT and on weekends from 5 a.m. to 2 p.m. PT. The company's online support offers driver and manual downloads, but lacks common features such as forums and real-time chat. Note that the cheaper 8920 model includes only a one-year warranty.
