  • Summary: The Acer Aspire Ethos 8951G is a devastatingly capable multimedia laptop. It won't suit everybody, due to the huge dimensions and heavy weight, but it really is a powerful, well made choice with a fantastic screen. If a big screen is necessary, it's more than worth a look.

  • Summary: Vexatious touch pad and limp speakers aside, the 8951G is rather good. As long as you stay away from Acer's Clear.fi software, you'll likely get some enjoyment out of this laptop.
  • Pros: Touch pad can be removed and used as media remote, Battery life is very good for a laptop of this size, Great performance
  • Cons: Speakers aren't that great, Touch pad lags even when connected to laptop, Non-removable battery

  • Excerpt: Wer das nötige ‚Kleingeld‘ von 1.600 Euro übrig hat und auf der Suche nach einem Desktop-Replacement ist, der könnte das Acer Aspire 8951G in die engere Wahl nehmen. Solide bis überdurchschnittlich im Gros leistet sich das 18-Zoll Notebook nur einen Patzer. Das Display ist für ein 1.600 Euro - Notebook zu dunkel. Zusammen mit dem Hang zum Reflektieren ist der Monitor daher nur in dunklen Umgebungen zu gebrauchen.
  • Pros: Verarbeitungsqualität, Performance der SSD, Anwendungs- und 3D-Leistung, Tastatur mit Hintergrundbeleuchtung, Touchpad auch als Remote Control
  • Cons: stetig drehender Lüfter, Glare-Display: Luminanz / Blickwinkel, Anschlussverteilung, Abwärme unter Last, rubbelnde Touchpad-Oberfläche, CPU-Throttling unter Volllast

  • Excerpt: Высший класс. Новый флагманский ноутбук Acer! 18-дюймовый Ethios 8951G явно предназначен стать заменой обычному ПК, ведь он оснащён четырёхъядерным Intel Core i7-2630QM и вполне себе игровой Nvidia GeForce GT 555M, 16 Гб RAM и скоростным SSD вместо медленного и ненадёжного HDD. И всё это - за 1700 евро. Кажется, намечается мощный конкурент Alienware M18x! Или - нет?
