Reviews for the Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G-2631675Wnkk
Multimedia center. With the Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G, Acer presents a multimedia machine with gaming qualities. Quad core processor, good graphics, 16 GB of RAM and a Blu-Ray drive are built into a stylish case. What more could we want?
The Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G is a premium entertainment, multimedia, and gaming notebook that offers sophisticated styling, a solid build, and superb performance. It sports a Blu-ray drive, excellent sound quality, and boasts a unique removable multi-touch trackpad that doubles as a remote control, adding convenience as well as a “cool” factor. There’s not too much we can pick on about the laptop, except that perhaps it’s still not quite as portable as its 15.6-inch size might suggest. While it’s definitely more portable than the 18.4-inch 8951G, it still weighs a hefty 7.28 lbs—not something you’d want to be lugging around town. But as a home or dorm entertainment, internet, work, and play hub it’ll shine. Priced at $1,399.99.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M:
As the successor to the GeForce GT 445M, the GT 555M is available in many different versions based on different chips (GF106, GF116, GF108) with different graphics memory (128 Bit, 192 Bit, DDR3, GDDR5) and varying core speeds.
Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.
Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
2630QM: Fast Quad-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
