Source: CNet English
We've been impressed by many of the laptops  in Acer's Aspire range, which is now so massive that it covers pretty much every sector of the market like a big, smothering blanket.  The Acer Aspire 5551 offers good performance for a laptop at this price point, but it's not ideal if you put a premium on portability.

15.6: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
