Acer TravelMate 8481T-6440

 

The Acer TravelMate TimelineX 8481T offers impressive portability, long battery life, and solid performance for workers on the move.

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 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.
