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 1820PT review


A netbook one minute, a tablet the next

Beefy components ; Nice design

Unresponsive touchscreen ; Not for games

Drop the touchscreen, add a better GPU and make it £500 cheaper, then it'd be perfect

Acer Aspire 3810T review


Acer's Aspire 3810T runs and runs and runs...

Unbelievable battery life ; Sylish, well-built chassis

Office performance is sub-par

Though performance is compromised, you could be using this all day without plugging it in, and it's stylish and solid too. Highly recommended if mobility is your priority

Acer Aspire AS8935g review


An aspiring media centre laptop, but does it achieve its aim?

Large screen ; Strong performance ; Blu-ray drive

Quite bulk ; Pictures on screen aren't great

A decent enough media centre, but not as portable as you may like
