Review Acer TravelMate TimelineX 8481TG Notebook

 

Runtime whopper. Acer puts great value on mobility in the TravelM

Outstanding battery life; Low power consumption; Compact size; Graphics switching; Stable case; Small power adapter; Low weight; Elegant looks

Very audible in load; Slow solid state drive; No optical drive; Moderate screen rates; Wobbly keys

13 or 14 inch runtime whoppers, such as the Dell Vostro 3350, Samsung QX412-S01DE or Asus U36SD-RX114V.

Acer TravelMate 8481T-6440

Acer Travelmate 8481T-6440

 

The 8481T-6440's keyboard is borrowed from Acer's Aspire Consumer line: big chiclet-style keys that appear as if they're floating off of the foundation. The typing experience isn't nearly as superb as that of the Lenovo X1 and Dell V131, but it'll...

Sleek metallic design. Lightweight. Huge battery lasted 11 hours. USB 3.0 and eSATA interfaces. Excellent navigating experience. Packs 14-inch screen in 13-inch frame

Color selection is a bit mundane

What little the Acer Travelmate 8481T-6440 business laptop gives up in horsepower, it gains back with a sleek, ultrabook-like design (low volt processor requires fewer clunky cooling fans) and over 11 hours of battery life.

GOOD FOR GAMING!

Acer TravelMate 8481T-6440

 

How do you shop for a laptop when it seems like most of them are quite simply good enough for your needs? Prices sway up and down by hundreds of dollars, based on features you care little about; notebooks, in general, are getting thinner and lighter...

Long-lasting battery ; Very thin, beautiful design ; Light weight

More expensive than necessary ; Unimpressive graphics performance

This TravelMate model looks great and will last all day, but you can definitely get more performance for your money, without sacrificing portability or design.

Acer TravelMate 8481T review

 

The Acer TravelMate 8481T is a surprisingly solidly built business laptop that weighs in at just 1.7kg.

The Acer TravelMate 8481T is a good choice for office work on the move, though our sample was a little less convenient to carry around than other lightweight laptops due to the odd-shaped battery. It's not going to weigh you down too much at 1.7kg and...

Acer TravelMate Timeline 8481T review

 

The Acer TravelMate Timeline 8481T is a very svelte laptop for the travelling businessman. Sadly, its odd battery bulges out of the back making it more awkward to fit into a case. With a slim bezel, fair performance and various security features, it's...

Slim body ; Metal chassis is sturdy when closed ; Comfortable tilted angle when typing ; Good battery life

Lid feels weak when open ; Large battery hump somewhat negates the slim design

The Acer TravelMate Timeline 8481T offers an average performance for the money but makes up for it with a slim and fairly sturdy shell. If you can put up with that awkward battery and don't mind the seriously dull looks, it's worth checking out.

Acer TravelMate Timeline X TM8481T 14in Core i5 notebook

 

Review As the name might suggest, Acer's TravelMate family of notebooks are aimed at the mobile users, with an eye on business bods after something a little more stylish than the standard issue grey slab. A new addition to the range is the Timeline X...

Lightweight laptop with an undemanding Core i5 CPU and eight-cell battery, aimed at the all-day mobile user.

Acer TravelMate 8481G

 

Acer's TravelMate 8481g shows that you don't have to sacrifice screen size, processing power, graphical capabilities or even the convenience of a removable battery to get something extremely lightweight and compact.

ACER Travelmate 8481G

 

Easy to carry laptop, thin and light with good battery backup makes this product apt for workers on the move. Price is on the higher side.
