Review Acer TravelMate P643-V-6424 Notebook

 

BusinessMate. Acer's 14-inch TravelMate P643-V-6424 targets the business customer and competes with similar notebooks from Lenovo, Dell, and HP. Is the 14-inch TravelMate a viable alternative to the stalwarts ThinkPad, Latitude, and ProBook? ...

Sturdy magnesium chassis ; Very comfortable keyboard and good touchpad ; 3 x USB 3.0 ; Non-glare screen ; Solid performance

Display not very bright ; Black level & contrast leave to be desired ; Viewing angles limited ; Battery takes very long to charge ; Location of USB ports less than ideal

A brighter display with better contrast and higher resolution

Acer Aspire

 

The Acer Aspire M and T provides a solid base configuration for a personal computer, and options for expandability in the future. Read more about it here.

The Acer Aspire M and T is upgradable up to a 4th generation i7 processor

The base model has a slow disk speed, and there’s no option to purchase a second optical drive

Review: Acer Aspire

 

Also not a great fan of the open button for the DVD drive – would rather the old "push in and it pops out" method myself, but that's the way it is I guess.

Good Keyboard, hardy, slim-line design, streams videos nicely

Mouse design could be better, open button for DVD not ideal
