Review Acer Aspire TimelineU M3-581PTG Ultrabook

 

Evolutionary. Acer takes a new approach to the familiar Ultrabook

Long battery life; High program performance; Fast graphics card; Optical drive; Touchscreen

Single USB 3.0; Disappointing TN panel; High temperature emissions at full load; Constantly running cooler fan; Workmanship flaws on our test model

Other Ultrabooks with a touchscreen: Asus VivoBook S400CA, HP SpectreXT Touchsmart 15 or Sony Vaio SV-T1511M1E/S. If you do not need a touchscreen, then the Lenovo IdeaPad U510 is an option.

Extremely good gaming performance ; Slim, portable design ; Sturdy construction

Poor screen ; Keyboard could be more comfortable
