Review Acer TravelMate P273-M Notebook


The big brother. We already reviewed the smaller siblings P243 and P253 from the Acer TravelMate P series. This review will show whether the 17.3-inch device can beat them or if the low price is an indicator for questionable quality and bad workmanship.

Matte screen, Runs very quiet, 24 months warranty, Wide stereo sound, The low noise levels and the wide stereo sound

Fingerprints, Glossy display cover, Palm rest warms up, Low quality case, A solid build quality for confidence in the device having a long durability
