Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5551
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.
