Reviews for the Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G-2414G50

Acer has delivered a delightful home media hub with the Aspire Ethos 5951G. It looks good, and performs well. Video was crisp and clear and the sound quality, once we’d installed the correct drivers, was excellent. While we initially thought it rather gimmicky, the removable touchpad/remote control turned out to be a surprisingly useful feature. If you’re after a multimedia PC for the lounge that’s ready to be part of an existing entertainment system, Aspire Ethos fits the bill nicely.

A good all-rounder with impressive battery life and that funky detachable MediaRemote touchpad. However, the mark-up for said is a touch too steep.

A nicely-designed, metal-clad multimedia powerhouse, the Ethos 5951G packs generous specifications, excellent connectivity and plenty of features for its price, not least of which is a unique and innovative removable touchpad that makes using the machine when hooked up to your TV or stereo a lot easier. If this feature appeals and you want to run some games, it's worth checking out – despite its lack of a Blu-ray drive and somewhat mediocre screen. Otherwise, these omissions combined with its slight premium means cheaper alternatives might be a better bet.

If you thought powerful laptops all have to look like they've been hewn from stone by a drunk man in the dark, think again -- the Acer Aspire Ethos 5951G provides some serious performance in a stylish black metal suit. The Acer Aspire Ethos is a great looking and superbly powerful machine. It may not be the lightest thing on the market, but you're certainly getting a lot of laptop for your lolly.

Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M:

Mid-range graphics card based on the GT 435M chip (GF108) with higher clock rates and DDR3 support.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


2410M:

Dual-core processor based on the Sandy Bridge architecture with an integrated graphics card and dual-channel DDR3 memory controller. The CPU is clocked at 2.3 GHz (Turbo Boost 2.6-2.9 GHz) and the GPU at 650 (1200 MHz Turbo).

15.60":

15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.

The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.

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


3.3 kg:

A laptop with this weight is comparatively heavy and less designed for mobility than for use at the desk. Therefore, the devices tend to shine less with battery life than with a large screen and higher performance.


Acer: In 1976, the company was founded in Taiwan under the name Multitech and was renamed Acer or Acer Group in 1987. The product range includes, for example, laptops, tablets, smartphones, desktops, monitors, TVs and computer peripherals. Since 2007, the group has merged with Gateway Inc. and Packard Bell, which also market their own laptop product lines.

Acer computers are designed for a variety of purposes, including ultrabooks for mobile use, gaming laptops for gamers, affordable options for everyday tasks, and 2-in-1 convertible laptops for versatility. Acer's product portfolio also includes tablets that offer portable computing and multimedia capabilities.


78.75%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
