Aspire 6920 (Steve)

I originally thought that it was too ugly for a photo, but it’s been around for quite a while now, and has served me well. It deserves a photo:


You can't see the coffee stains from here

Shiny… and grubby…

This is yet another laptop. Originally, it was another loaned machine, but then it became mine – the original owner didn’t want it back.

It originally was running a terribly slow install of Windows 7, but I replaced that with Arch Linux, and used it for a while. Since I’ve now got the Dell working, it’s now running a Debian dual boot with the Windows Vista install from the Dell, just in case I ever need it back.



This machine is probably going to be my KSP machine, mostly because my other machines really aren’t powerful enough.

To help with that, I’ve turned it into a separate project – cunningly named the “Acer Project”

It’s currently running Debian.


It did have some decent specs to start with, but I’ve moved quite a few parts to the Dell

  • Core 2 Duo @ 1.8Ghz – T5670
  • 2GB DDR2 RAM
  • 250GB SATA HDD
  • Nvidia GeForce 9400M GS 512MB GPU
  • Half-dead battery (2 hour life, if I’m lucky) – now being used as a budget UPS 🙂
