Perhaps the most disappointing thing that AnandTech found about the Acer Aspire 5551G-4591
is that it is out of stock everywhere.  Consider the low expectations that they had walking into the review that almost rates as a stellar recommendation; the fact that AnandTech actually went looking for the device puts this Aspire miles ahead of past models.  It is not a high powered notebook, it is better compared to Atom+ION netbooks as opposed to gaming laptops with switchable GPUs.

"Now, we haven't been particularly kind in our comments on some of the Acer/Gateway laptops of late, but that

doesn't mean they can't fill a niche. We still think the keyboard is one of the least desirable options for a

notebook (which is putting it kindly), and they're not likely to ever win an industrial design competition, but one

thing Acer tends to do better than anyone else is to pack some decent performance options into very affordable

offerings. So just what does the 5551G-4591 bring to bear? Here's the spec rundown."
