Posted on Jun 24 2010 - 7:15pm by Richard Sharp

Anyone who is thinking about buying a laptop knows that it is not always easy to find one which complements the inherent flexibility and mobility of a laptop with a powerful processor and lots of storage space. The Acer Aspire 5551 model gives you something close to the best of both worlds, with a performance which stands up well against many laptop PC’s without losing any of its portability or attractiveness in the process.


Design

As well as the ease with which you can transport it and work in any location, the sleekness of design is always one of the biggest benefits in any laptop. Even if you only use it for playing games or chatting on messenger you can’t help but feel that little bit more important and professional when carrying one around with you. The Acer Aspire 5551 doesn’t let you down in this respect, as the cool, dark blue casing looks great as well as being tough enough to withstand occasional bumps.


Notable Specifications

The addition of the AMD Athlon™ II Dual-Core M320 processor is the key to the Acer Aspire 5551’s top quality performance, giving you the power to run various applications at the same time without the sluggish performance which many laptops offer when asked to run several things at once. Image quality won’t be a problem either, as the 15.6” screen gives a bit picture area and the 16:9 ratio makes it a great place to watch a movie using the DVD SuperMulti player which is built in. 


The computer comes with Window 7 Home Premium 64 bit system, 3GB of memory and a hard drive of 320GB. The 2 USB 2.0 ports, integrated 802.11 b/g/n and the HDMI slots mean that you can plug in just about any accessory you can think of, hook up to easily to the internet and get great images when you connect to any HD TV monitor or projector.


Summary

Whether you are thinking of buying a laptop for business purposes, to take advantage of Wi-Fi internet connections or simply to let you choose where you access your favourite documents or games you will find that the Acer Aspire 5551 looks good and performs well.
