Acer TravelMate P256-M review


The TravelMate P256-M is a functional desktop replacement, and the decent port offerings and a sizeable keyboard make it a reasonable choice for any small business. However, its bulky design, slightly dull display and unresponsive track pad diminish...

Acer TravelMate P256-M-39NG Notebook Review


Full HD Premium. Acer attracts a lot of office users with its conservative, yet solid and powerful notebooks. Usually, the price-performance ratio is just right, but for this to be true for our test model, which uses the Intel Core i3-4005U and a Full...

Various configurations are available, Solid case for office use, DVD burner, if needed, Good keyboard, Great touchpad, Quiet, Cool, Very long battery life, Two power adapters

Very expensive, Ports at the front, Demanding applications or a lot of multitasking will overtax the laptop, Poor contrast and colors, Somewhat blurry fonts, HDD in too slow in the 4k tests

Quick and Simple


Tesco were fantastic as usual and delivered for free to my local store with great communication and timing. The laptop itself seems to be great and is easy to set up. I've only had it a few days but so far so good!

Entry Level Laptop


This laptop is not as fast as I had hoped. Good for basic applications.

windows 7


I ordered this laptop with windows 7 professional installed, and other than the user manual not being as descriptive as I'd like and cover things that really should have an explanation, ie; the small blue square in the upper left corner with an orange...
