Review Acer Aspire Ethos 8951G Notebook

Notebookcheck
7 July 2011
  • Summary: Surround system. The new 18 inch flagship comes with the quad core processor, Intel Core i7-2630QM, and the Nvidia GeForce GT 555M graphics solution. Not only are the 16 GB RAM and the installed speedy SSD striking, but the touchpad as well. It can be removed and used as a remote control.
  • Pros: Good application performance, Removable touchpad, Fast SSD, USB 3.0 & Bluetooth 3.0 +HS, We especially liked the 5.1 speaker arrangement in the test.
  • Cons: Weak display, CPU with Turbo problems, High temperature development, No GDDR5 VRAM, A proper display would enhance the Acer Aspire 8951G considerably.

16 August 2011
  • Summary: It may be huge, but the Aspire Ethos houses plenty of good stuff, including a quad-core Core i7 CPU and a solid state drive, and it supports up to 16GB of RAM. It even has a nifty innovation: its touchpad is removable and doubles as a specific media remote.
  • Pros: Performance, SSD + hard drive, Easily upgradable
  • Cons: Touchpad is a drag, No dedicated volume buttons, Glossy screen

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Cons: stetig drehender Lüfter, Glare-Display: Luminanz / Blickwinkel, Anschlussverteilung, Abwärme unter Last, rubbelnde Touchpad-Oberfläche, CPU-Throttling unter Volllast
