Acer Aspire Ethos 8951G reviewThese days we’re seeing a lot more slim and light ultraportable laptops. Rising up against these size zero models is the Acer Aspire Ethos 8951G.
Asus is best known for its dinky Eee PC netbooks, but also produces some excellent multimedia laptops. The N53SV-SX303V packs in an impressive specification for the price, making it a strong desktop replacement choice.
Acer aims to balance price with performance and the Aspire series has been its mainstay for many years. With the Aspire 5742G, Acer has put everything you need in a starter laptop and wrapped it up in a great-looking package.
Do your Blu-ray films justice on the Asus N53, which teamed up with Bang & Olufsen for the best sound in town. It’s a pretty powerful laptop with 500GB storage – but check out what features could let it down.
The 2011 MacBook Pro refresh is far more radical than it might seem. At a glance, the aluminium unibody Apple MacBook Pro line-up – including this top-of-the-range 17-inch model – look pretty much the same as their predecessors. But under the hood, they feature significant and very welcome advances.
MSI produces a broad variety of laptops, from award winning netbooks, such as the Wind U160, right up to powerhouse gaming laptops, such as the GX660R on test here.
In the past couple of months we’ve seen the first laptops emerge featuring Intel’s latest Sandy Bridge processing technology. Packard Bell’s EasyNote TS13-HR-035 is the latest and it offers an impressive level of performance for such an affordable machine.
We have always been huge fans of Samsung’s entry-level laptops, but unfortunately the RV510 failed to impress us quite as much as previous models have. This is largely due to its poor usability.
The ASUS X53E is a multimedia whizz – the LED backlit screen, great audio and long battery life make it ideal for watching a movie!
