Shopping Guide: Comparison of Workstations

 

Colorful and powerful. Workstations are expensive. But they are high performance machines for professionals. The processing power isn't necessarily higher than high-end consumer laptops, but the screen usually shows who the boss is. There isn't a vast...

Acer Ethos Aspire 5951G-9694

 

Everyone wants luxury—in cars, in tech, in food—but few of us can afford it. At least, perhaps, we can help you with the tech: We just looked at a machine with quite a few luxe trappings at a moderate price.

Strong performance ; Solid construction ; Excellent battery life ; Extras such as a built-in remote control

Heavy ; Audio could use improvement

Acer's Ethos Aspire 5951G is a respectable midsize performer with some high-end touches. Check it out if you demand style and excellence on a limited budget.

Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G review

 

Aspire Ethos is Acer's premium entertainment line of notebooks, and the 5951G is the latest member of the family. Built around the combination of a Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5 processor and NVIDIA graphics, with Dolby Sound, this aims to be a multimedia...

Good screen, NVIDIA Optimus graphics, Dolby sound, 5.1 surround sound conenctor and high audio quality, innovative removable touchpad cum media controller

Unusual split keys on keyboard, unnecessary numeric keypad waste space

A good media PC at a reasonable price that’s ready to connect to your entertainment system.

Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G-2418G75Mnkk review

 

The Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G is a powerful laptop with generally good specs but a low-resolution screen.

Acer's Aspire 5951G is a multimedia-focused laptop with some impressive specifications that could be just as comfortable in a home office as in the living room. We weren't convinced by the touchpad that doubles up as a remote control though - it's just...

Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G

 

A unique removable touchpad that turns into a wireless remote makes this stylish and powerful 15.6in multimedia laptop well worth checking out.

Unique and innovative removable touchpad remote ; Attractive design with brushed aluminium ; Good backlit keyboard ; Oodles of connectivity ; Decent dedicated graphics

Sub-par, glossy screen ; Average 2.1 speakers ; No Blu-ray

Build quality is simply excellent. In fact, it's easily the best-built Acer laptop we've had through our labs. There's not a hint of creaking or unwanted give anywhere and all the plastics used feel firm. Even premium laptops often suffer from varying...

Acer Ethos 5951G 15.6in Core i5 notebook

 

Review The Acer Ethos 5951G laptop, with its matt black casing and blue activity LEDs, looks rather purposeful. I continued to be impressed by the cosmetics as I hefted the 3.3kg slab onto my lap even though a closer look revealed the brushed finish on...

A good all-rounder with impressive battery life and that funky detachable MediaRemote touchpad. However, the mark-up for said is a touch too steep. ®

Great Laptop, Great Price.

 

An absolutely excellent buy. It executes tasks extremely quickly with its i5 processor and 8GB RAM. It also has no problems with games. So far I have ran Wargame: European Escalation (a game released this year) and Team Fortress 2. I have been able to...
