Reviews for the Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G-268G75BNkk

80% Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G review
Source: IT Reviews English
This is a very capable, desktop-replacement notebook. As well as being a high spec Windows 7 Pro platform, it offers good multimedia support, though you'll have to stretch your budget a bit higher for Blu-ray. Keyboard and the touchpad remote are highlights, but a fast processor and vast dollops of memory come close behind.

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.
