Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5551G-4591

Acer Aspire 5551G-4591 15.6-in AMD Turion II Notebook Review
Source: PC Perspective English
The Acer Aspire 5551G-4591 is difficult to recommend as a general purpose laptop. The laptop’s user interface is not impressive, the display is too glossy, and the speakers are sub-par. Portability is also a lost cause due to the laptop’s weight, large size and minimal battery life. The AS5551G-4591 isn’t the best laptop for productivity, it isn’t the best laptop for travel, and it isn’t the best laptop for listening to music or watching movies.It is, however, a good value when it comes to gaming. The Acer Aspire 5551G-4591, and its various cousins, has serious gaming chops. This laptop can trade punches with the $1,199 entry level Alienware M15x, which has a faster Core i3 processor but inferior Nvidia GT 240M graphics solution.

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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 kg: 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.
