Acer TravelMate TM8471 - Time is money

 

Here we are again, warming up these cold days with a review of another Timeline from well known Acer. This time we will be putting the 8471 model through our tests. The particular configuration offers a 14 inch display, Intel's SU7300 at 1.3 GHz, 3 GB...

Acer Travelmate Timeline 8471

 

Acer\'s new range of Travelmate Timeline notebooks are the picture of innovation. With low voltage processors, nifty cooling systems and multi-gesture controls they are high-end business machines.

The Timeline 8471 is a highend business device built for mobility.

If the TravelMate's screen is first-rate, so is its keyboard: It's full-sized (in fact, the A through apostrophe keys span an eighth of an inch more than our desktop keyboard's 8 inches), with the Ctrl and Delete keys in their proper bottom left and...

Notebook Review: Acer TravelMate 8471

 

TravelMate is a venerable trademark; it dates back to Texas Instruments' line of business notebooks, which Acer acquired in 1997. (Pause for the oldest old-timers to wax nostalgic about the TI 99/4.) Timeline is a label Acer started using last year to...

Apple is said to be including NFC capabilities in the iPhone 5 this fall.

Acer Travelmate Timeline 8471-944G32Mn

 

Great size and weight for travelling with. Screen is just the right size, not too small so that you have to scroll all the while or strain to read text. Light on the shoulder. Laptop is quick and battery life excellent, no need to carry the charger if...

Case shows finger prints.

Acer Travelmate Timeline 8471-733G25

 

An great all rounder that provides excellent business performance and usability. Keyboard feels solid and keys are spaced out enough that there is no miss-keying.

None so far!
