Acer - TravelMate 273X


Notebooks for under £1,000, even including the VAT, are no longer a rarity, but finding a really good one can be far from straightforward. This is simply because notebooks cost more to manufacture than desktop PCs, ...

The Acer TravelMate 273X offers freat value for money when you consider what you get. Nice design, sound build quality, plenty of features, a decent keyboard, solid performance and a two-year warranty are among the high points.
