Acer TravelMate 225X


Acer was one of the few big name manufacturers that were able to meet our stringent pricing criteria. The submitted notebook, the TravelMate, is not a so bad overall, but it couldn't win out against the smaller manufacturer's abilities to get top...

Although borderline in comparison, this notebook comes with a 1.33GHz Mobile Celeron, 256MB of RAM (8MB shared), a 20GB HDD and a DVD-ROM. This isn't bad, although in the performance stakes it couldn't muster it with the desktop processor-enabled...

Great product and love the cord


I already have one so I know how well it works. Drys my thin hair pretty quickly and I love the retractable cord. Watch out though, it retracts quickly so don't slap yourself in the face by accident.

Durable and Convenient - Winner!


My wife hasn't broken it, and I haven't tripped over the cord in the morning. So we both win, she also claims it helps add volume to her hair, which I cannot approve or disapprove of, but for the price seems like a great deal to me.

It's okay


I live conair stuff usually. Good for the price, dries well, not too loud. Cord is very short because it's retractable, but the retractable feature I love too. Just wish it could be longer.

Product Specifications

You've decided to work from home, but you aren't sure you'll be familiar enough with the various components you've been shown - and that's a worry you can do without. Well, with the all-in-one design of the TravelMate 220 series, you will never need to be concerned about that again. With the optical drive, as well as the floppy and hard disks all built in, there is no danger of being caught without your drive. And what about the battery life? Many notebooks struggle to keep up with your lifestyle - not the TravelMate 220. The Li-ion battery pack offers you an astonishing 4.5 hours of battery life under typical conditions - so you can make all those meetings in just one trip. You also want a notebook that delivers convenience to your fingertips. The TravelMate 220 does just that. With its four quick-function keys you can easily launch your e-mail, Internet browser or any other program, simply by programming the keys to your needs. It's 3: 00 am and you've finally stumbled onto that solution to all of your client's problems, but you can't call this late at night! No matter what time it is or where you are, if there's a network, your TravelMate 220 series can access it, either through a PTT-approved 56K fax/data modem or the LAN-on- motherboard, both of which are built in. This means that wherever you are, you can get your client's approval just as soon as they check their mail. What's more, many buildings today are going wireless, offering even greater flexibility and mobility. Simply insert a PCMCIA wireless LAN card into one of the slots available on the TravelMate 220, and you'll be surfing towards that contract, signed and delivered. With the TravelMate 220, you can't eliminate the risks of accidents, but you can minimize the risks of damage. The TravelMate 220 comes to you equipped with Acer's unique DASP (Disk Anti-Shock Protection), designed to withstand the knocks of daily life - and more. This means you can buy a TravelMate 220 with confidence, knowing that Acer has subjected it to situations even harsher than in real life, and Acer is satisfied that it will survive.
