Acer Aspire Timeline U M5-581TG review

 

Poor touchpad design puts a bit of a crimp in this otherwise outstanding laptop's usability

Acer Aspire Timeline M5-581TG

 

A powerful notebook with lots of memory and joy of joys no shiny black in sight anywhere as the whole thing is silver grey. The screen is of course reflective but not nearly as much as a lot of other offerings I have used.

This is an Intel Core i5 unit with a 500GB hard disc and a small SSD that helps make things quite a bit quicker in starting. It is 36x25x2cm and it weights 2.175kilos. The unit feels really sturdy probably because the screen back is aluminium. You will...

Review Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5-581TG Ultrabook

 

Ultra(Gaming)Book. Acer equips their Ultrabook with a 20.6 millim

Keyboard with backlight; Optical drive; GPU performance of the GeForce GT 640M; Price-performance ratio; Long battery life under load; Ports on the back

Average port selection (no VGA connector); Viewing angles quite restricted; Constant fan noise

The thermal differences between this model and the Timeline Ultra M3-581TG.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5-581TG-6666

 

The Acer Timeline Ultra M5 is yet another Ultrabook on the scene. This one offers an attractive design, great audio, an optical drive and discrete graphics. It does lack in screen resolution and overall performance, which holds this computer back from...

It's really a question of wait and see. The product as originally delivered was dead on arrival, and had to be returned to Acer to have a new mainboard fitted. It is now it its early days. We'll have to wait and see. That's why I have given it a middle...

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5-581TG NX.M5MEK.004

 

Love everything about it - v good value for the quality, super quick inline functionality etc.

Really struggling getting to grips with windows 8 - guess it's just shaking off old habits, but I don't find it particularly user friendly

Paper weight

 

Last time I buy a laptop from newegg.

On sale

First, the HDD went bad, then the track pad,then the battery wouldn't hold charge, then the Ethernet/wireless adapter died......The trackpad, battery, and HDD went bad within six months and became a desktop. I bought another laptop 6 months after...

Consumer review (newegg.com)

beautiful and slim

 

Once you get used to the screen you're fine. The touch pad however is a bit too annoying so I'm using a usb mouse.

This is a decently powered laptop, but it is very very thin and high quality looking. The screen I'm not too fond of, but that's always been the case with acer screens. Overall a solid machine, and love the fact that it has a number pad

First one that arrived was bad - touch pad would stop working at a certain angle, and the wifi seemed to operate without an antenna connected because the range was lousy ; The second one's wifi worked great, and the touch pad issue was not there....
