Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3

 

When Acer's Aspire Timeline Ultra notebooks made their first appearance at CES, these 14- and 15-inch laptops seemed like little more than the successors to Acer's TimelineX series. Thin-and-light laptops, complete with optical drive and some likely...

Thin and lightweight ; Great gaming performance ; Super fast boot times

Low-rent build materials ; Shoddy screen ; Lackluster audio capabilities

The Aspire Timeline Ultra delivers great performance in a svelte package, but a low-res display and cheap build materials keep it from being a lust-worthy laptop

Acer’s Timeline M3 Review: Laptop Could’ve Been a Contender

 

The Acer Timeline M3 is a study in polar opposites. Its thin, elegant chassis and superb performance for its class suggest that the M3 might be a true category leader, but an painfully poor LCD panel prevents the Acer from achieving that goal.

Sleek, thin, and elegant looking ; Above-average gaming performance ; Trackpad is overly sensitive

Very poor overall display quality

The Timeline M3 could have been a Macbook killer, if not for the poor LCD panel.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG review

 

What is an ultrabook? Intel has a pretty loose definition: as long as your laptop is less than 0.8 inches thin, has five hours of battery life, rapidly wakes from sleep, and has a second-generation...

Potent gaming performance ; Good battery life ; Matte external surfaces ; Full-size ports

Poor ergonomic design ; Materials feel cheap ; Ugly, low-res screen ; Terrible speakers

Probably not the laptop for you, but that really depends on price

Review Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3-581TG Ultrabook

 

Kepler's Debut. "Ultrabook XL" is one way of describing the Acer

Very good graphics performance; Fast SSD and thus very good application performance; Good battery life thanks to Optimus

Poor display; Touchpad without dedicated buttons; Hot under load

The currently available 13-inch Ultrabooks and the rather light 15"-inch multimedia devices like the expensive MacBook Pro 15 can't compete.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 Review: A True 15-inch Ultrabook

 

A major complaint about ultrabooks is that they don't really deliver premium performance. Acer hopes to change that with the first 15-inch ultrabook with high-performance NVIDIA GeForce 640M graphics inside. Keep reading to find out more.

Unbelievable graphics performance ; Thin and light yet well built ; Good keyboard and large touchpad

Bad location for power button ; All ports are in back ; Nasty hot spot on the bottom ; If you are in the market for an ultrabook with a large screen, excellent video editing and gaming performance, and a premium fit and finish then the Acer Aspire...

If you are in the market for an ultrabook with a large screen, excellent video editing and gaming performance, and a premium fit and finish then the Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 deserves serious consideration.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 - Finding the Right Balance

 

Building a good notebook is a delicate balancing act between price, build quality and performance. The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 with a new GeForce GT 640M GPU comes pretty close to finding the right balance. Find out if this multimedia machine...

Thin and light ; Fantastic battery life ; Solid Build ; Attractive street price

Made mostly from plastic ; Very low resolution screen

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 Review: Kepler's First Laptop

 

The Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M3 is a unique laptop. It was the first product on the market to contain a GPU based of Nvidia's new Kepler architecture, beating out not only other laptops but also the desktop video cards. It's also a rare 15.6”...

Acer Aspire Timeline U M3 581TG

 

The cheapest game-worthy Ultrabook around thanks to GeForce GT 640M graphics.

Relatively slim and light gaming machine ; Very affordable ; Good battery life ; USB 3.0

Horrible connectivity placement ; Average screen

Until now the Ultrabook just hasn't been that ultra. Compared to the MacBook Air not much has been able to match its day-to-day computing speeds. But where
