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 TravelMate 4011WLCi Review (pics, specs)


The Acer TravelMate 4011WLCi is a mid-range Intel Centrino laptop with a budget price. It sports a 15.4 widescreen WXGA LCD and weighs just under 6.2lbs. Following is a full review of this laptop.

Great Price Great overclocking Nice screen Decent battery life

Mediocre build quality 4200RPM Hard Drive "Blocked" out ports

All in all, this is a fine laptop for the price. Despite some of the issues I have with the build quality and the initial problems I had when purchasing the laptop, it seems to be worth every dollar, and I love the overclock abilities this laptop...

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

The Acer Aspire M and T offers some expandability, but the base computer ships with mundane components.

Acer Aspire 1825PTZ


The Acer Aspire 1825PTZ is a cross between a laptop and a tablet, with a compact 11.6-inch touchscreen and a full QWERTY keypad. It could be great for office and home use alike then, but stumbles in a few key areas. The good Unlike products such as the...

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
