Acer Aspire Ethos 5943G review

 

The predecessor to the 5943G was about as a visually exciting as a damp Wednesday, but Acer certainly seems to have learned from its mistakes, because this time around it's come up with a much more striking design.

Fast 3D performance; Speedy processor; Plenty of RAM; Great keyboard; Good. looking design.

Expensive; Screen isn't Full HD.

The Acer Aspire Ethos 5943G will make a serious dent in your wallet, but its speedy processor and fast graphics chip deliver top-class performance, although its screen is slightly disappointing.

screen is good easy to clean no edges for dust to collect in, very good lay out for keyboard, seems a very good system. Some people complained about the volume but I found no problem but then I did change the media player to match the actual volume...

I personally have not found any bad points to be fair, If I was to be hyper picky then the only thing I would have liked to see would be a thumb grip to open the cover but it is not on most laptops so not a problem and certainly does not detract from...

Blu ray, processor speed and quality screen.

The keyboard is to close to the ventilation slots.

Good display and positive keyboard which I find easy to use. Very quiet. Sound quality is very good compared to other laptops I have used. Processor rattles through the tasks I have performed but I have not used, to date, a number of items on this...
