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 Aspire Ethos 5951G


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

Acer has delivered a delightful home media hub with the Aspire Ethos 5951G. It looks good, and performs well. Video was crisp and clear and the sound quality, once we’d installed the correct drivers, was excellent.

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

Its clear to see what your'e doing versatile and able to multitask with ease

It's heavy to carry around and its size as much as its impressive also takes up a lot more room.
