Acer TravelMate 4060

 

This midsize laptop offers good performance at a low price, but it's marred by supershrimpy battery life.

Inexpensive; respectable performance; well-designed case; big, wide-aspect display; comfortable keyboard.

Very short battery life; limited connectors; lacks business-level security features; limited tech-support hours.

The midsize Acer TravelMate 4060 tells a generally compelling story with its price, performance, design, and features, but when it comes to battery life, its tale turns to one of woe.

Acer TravelMate TM3002WTCi review: Acer TravelMate TM3002WTCi

 

Acer TravelMate TM3002WTCi

Lightweight case; fast performance; includes two batteries for extended life; wide keyboard; three USB 2.0 ports.

Lacks the latest security features; no port replicator included; tiny mouse buttons; limited tech-support hours.

An inexpensive business ultraportable, the TravelMate TM3002WTCi offers an appealing design, plus lots of speed and battery life, but it lacks some security features and support niceties.

Acer TravelMate 3200

 

The TravelMate 3200, Acer's first credible entry into the crowded thin-and-light category, is neither the thinnest nor the lightest corporate notebook around, but it covers all the essentials at the right price. The fully loaded configuration we tested...

Reasonable price; decent performance; adequate battery life; high-end graphics card for a thin-and-light; classy and light design.

Badly placed Wi-Fi and Bluetooth on/off switches; only one year of warranty protection.

The Acer TravelMate 3200 hits the mainstream business market dead center, delivering performance and features in a portable, well-priced package.

Acer TravelMate 8000 review: Acer TravelMate 8000

 

Acer TravelMate 8000

More than five hours of battery life; Bluetooth and Wi-Fi; three-in-one flash-card reader; good performance.

AC adapter needs three-prong outlet; one-year warranty.

An excellent assortment of features and long battery life combine to make the Acer TravelMate 8000 a good thin-and-light, but it's a half step behind the best on performance.

Acer TravelMate P449 review: A sensible, understated design marred by a poor display unit

 

The Acer TravelMate P449 is meant to be a workhorse of a device for a working professional or a student. Does it fit the bill? Let's find out

At Rs 44,000, the laptop is a decent buy. If it wasn’t for the screen, I’d blindly recommend this to anyone who asks for a laptop in this price range.

Review Acer Travelmate 8472TG Notebook

 

Desktop to go. Das 14,1" This business notebook comes with a matt

Solid case with a robust surface; Matte display with good brightness; Hybrid technology gives the user the choice between battery life and performance; Long runtimes with Intel HD; Good system performance; Relatively light weight, including DVD burner;...

Awkward interface arrangement; No eSata or USB 3.0; No digital monitor output; Low contrast screen with pale colors; No higher resolutions as 1366 x 768 are selectable with the GT330M; Constantly running fan, loud when overloaded; Slow hard drive

Hybrid technology aside, there are currently no notebooks other than the Acer offering a combination of matte 14.1" display and a relatively high-performing graphic card. With lower-performing graphics, one could perhaps consider the Toshiba Tecra M10,...

Acer TravelMate 3010

 

Superb performance for an ultra-portable. Great battery life. Small and lightweight. Six-cell and three-cell batteries included.

Screen is dark and drab. Bluetooth/Wi-Fi switches are too loose. DVD drive is external. Proprietary Acer software is annoying.

Acer's cheap and cheerful thin-and-light feels more like a high-end offering thanks to its stellar performance and battery life.
