Acer Aspire 1551-5448
Reviews for the Acer Aspire 1551-5448
Source: Hot Hardware
If you aren't concerned with gaming, and you can stomach the ~3 hour battery life, the Aspire 1551 is hard to ignore on the netbook landscape. It ships with 4GB of DDR3 memory, an IGP capable of handling 720p/1080p movie playback, a great GPU and a 64-bit OS. All for the same price as the Eee PC 1215N. If this had a matte LCD and a slightly more potent battery, we would give it our highest recommendations.

CommentATI Radeon HD 4225: Onboard graphics card (in the RS880M chipset) that is able to decode HD videos (thanks to the UVD2). Technically a slower clocked HD 4250. Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
K625: Dual Core Entry level CPU for small subnotebooks on a performance level with the SU7300 Intel Core 2 Duo.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
