If an entertainment machine is what you are looking for, it would be worth your while to check out two of Acer’s newest offering, the Acer Aspire Ethos AS5951G and AS8951G. Both notebooks are powered by 2nd Generation Intel Core i7 quad- and i5 dual-core processors and RAM that could be up to 16GB. And because the two laptops are meant to be used mainly for entertainment, they also come equipped with Nvidia GeForce GT 555M 2GB dedicated video card, which is decent enough for mid-range gaming laptops. The two models have also built-in DVD or Blu-ray drive.
Now, let us go to the difference between the AS5951G and AS8951G. The obvious difference between the two laptops is the screen size; the AS8951G has a larger display and a resolution in full HD. The AS5951G on the other hand has a 1366 x 768 panel. Scratch resistant Corning Gorilla glass not protects the display of both machines but also give them very sleek look. When it comes to audio, the AS8951G has also the edge compared to the AS5951G because it has 5 speakers, one of which is a sub-woofer. This speaker set up will give a deeper sound as compared to AS5951G’s simple stereo speakers. Of course the biggest edge that the AS8951G has over the AS5951G is the additional internal hard drive bay that allows dual HDD configurations with up to 1.5TB.
