Acer Aspire Timeline U M3 581TG

 

The cheapest game-worthy Ultrabook around thanks to GeForce GT 640M graphics.

Relatively slim and light gaming machine ; Very affordable ; Good battery life ; USB 3.0

Horrible connectivity placement ; Average screen

Until now the Ultrabook just hasn't been that ultra. Compared to the MacBook Air not much has been able to match its day-to-day computing speeds. But where

Acer Aspire Timeline M3 MA50 review

 

The Acer Aspire M3 is a slim ultra-portable with a 15.6in screen and a stunning matt black finish. It feels incredibly well built, too. Unusually, the power switch is hidden on the edge of the lower front lip of the laptop, making it a bit of a...

With sleek lines, a 15.6in display and a massive battery life, this well-made ultra-portable lets you work all day

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 review

 

With sleek lines, a 15.6in display and a massive battery life, this well-made ultra-portable lets you work all day

The processor has on-chip Intel HD Graphics 3000, which produced a frame rate of 15fps in our Dirt 3 test. You'll have to knock the graphical quality down a bit get a playable frame rate, but it'll run most 3D games at low quality settings. Even though...

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 review

 

We put the travel-friendly notebook through its paces to see what the fuss is about.

While this may stretch the definition of an Ultrabook just a little, the Hybrid drive, great performance and sleek and lightweight design make this an excellent work or travel option.

Acer Aspire Timeline M3 Ultra review

 

It seems safe to say that Ultrabooks haven't given the PC market the shot in the arm that Intel was hoping for. The high prices haven't helped, of course, and there also seems to be some evidence that many people are turned off by the relatively small...

If you want a laptop that is really slim and light then you’ll obviously want to opt for a 13in Ultrabook instead. But if you compare the M3 to most 15.6in laptops then it actually comes out looking pretty good. It’s one of the slimmest and lightest...

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3

 

When Acer's Aspire Timeline Ultra notebooks made their first appearance at CES, these 14- and 15-inch laptops seemed like little more than the successors to Acer's TimelineX series. Thin-and-light laptops, complete with optical drive and some likely...

Thin and lightweight ; Great gaming performance ; Super fast boot times

Low-rent build materials ; Shoddy screen ; Lackluster audio capabilities

The Aspire Timeline Ultra delivers great performance in a svelte package, but a low-res display and cheap build materials keep it from being a lust-worthy laptop

Acer’s Timeline M3 Review: Laptop Could’ve Been a Contender

 

The Acer Timeline M3 is a study in polar opposites. Its thin, elegant chassis and superb performance for its class suggest that the M3 might be a true category leader, but an painfully poor LCD panel prevents the Acer from achieving that goal.

Sleek, thin, and elegant looking ; Above-average gaming performance ; Trackpad is overly sensitive

Very poor overall display quality

The Timeline M3 could have been a Macbook killer, if not for the poor LCD panel.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG review

 

What is an ultrabook? Intel has a pretty loose definition: as long as your laptop is less than 0.8 inches thin, has five hours of battery life, rapidly wakes from sleep, and has a second-generation...

Potent gaming performance ; Good battery life ; Matte external surfaces ; Full-size ports

Poor ergonomic design ; Materials feel cheap ; Ugly, low-res screen ; Terrible speakers

Probably not the laptop for you, but that really depends on price
