83% Review Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5-581TG Ultrabook | Notebookcheck
Ultra(Gaming)Book. Acer equips their Ultrabook with a 20.6 millimeter (0.81 inch) thick aluminum chassis and a Kepler GT640M GPU suitable for gaming. Does this combination work and do the temperatures remain within acceptable limits? Read our review to find out.

A powerful notebook with lots of memory and joy of joys no shiny black in sight anywhere as the whole thing is silver grey. On the down side the screen is still very reflective, why cannot a non reflective screen be standard on all notebooks.I liked this notebook but as always the review period is short and doing a great deal more than a standard set of tests is not possible.

Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 – Review
Source: Gadgetmix English
When ultrabooks first launched at the end of 2011, it was a given that such a compact frame couldn’t possibly accommodate a spinning hard disk or optical drive. That black bar around the screen sticks out as one imperfection, and aesthetes might carp at the plastic base plate or lack of a side USB port. But for performance, input devices, audio, and ease of use (think DVD burner vs USB stick for movie watching) the Acer Aspire Timeline M5 rocks.

The Timeline Ultra M5 runs on a newer but weaker processor than the M3 used, and Acer pulled the older model's speedy 256GB SSD in favor of a 500GB HDD with a 20GB SSD boot drive. The result is slower overall performance, which is reflected in the 50-point difference in the systems' WB7 scores.

90% Acer Aspire Timeline Ultra M5 Review
Source: Digital Trends English
We can’t help but wonder if Acer is a bit confused. The company sent us two laptops for review simultaneously: the Acer Aspire M5 (priced at $780) and the Acer Aspire S5 (priced at $1,399). Between these, the M5 is clearly superior. It’s more attractive, nearly as quick, far better for games, and lasts longer on a charge. Maybe they accidentally switched the labels.
