Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 2480

60% Acer TravelMate 2480-2153
Source: Laptop Mag English
At only $539, this budget notebook has all the basics you need in a design that's easy to carry. The Acer TravelMate 2480-2153's super-low $539 price tag will shine like a skyward beacon to bargain hunters everywhere. And luckily, said bargain hunters won't be disappointed. You don't get many bells and whistles, but this portable 14.1-inch system delivers a good mix of features and performance for the money. We found the 2480's silver-and-black case compact and aesthetically pleasing. Flipping open the lid reveals a 14.1-inch, 1280 x 800-pixel widescreen display. As with the TravelMate 8210, the 2480's screen looked a bit washed out and dull, even with the brightness settings cranked. Watching DVDs was less than thrilling, but the matte-finish screen is fine for Word processing and surfing the Web.

The sub-$600 notebook is a rare beast, and the few Windows Vista models we've seen at or around this price have been less-than-stellar performers. For Web surfing, working with office documents, and playing DVDs, however, a budget laptop such as the $549 Acer TravelMate 2480-2153 provides enough power for generally satisfactory computing experience. This 14.1-inch model even manages to add unique design touches such as an ergonomically curved keyboard to help it stand out from other inexpensive systems.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset.

Intel Celeron M: It is a Pentium M with halved level 2 Cache and limited on FSB 400. The characteristic of this processor is the speed, which is hardly slower than an equivalent Pentium M. However it can change the speed not dynamically like the Pentium M and therefore needs without load more current.
It is also available as Low Voltage Version with very small current consumption.

This display size represents a treshold between the small sizes of subnotebooks and ultrabooks and the standard-sizes of office- and multimedia laptops on the other hand. Laptops with that size are somewhat rare, nowadays.

Usually subnotebooks, ultrabooks and quite lightweight laptops with 12-16 inch display-diagonal weigh as much.
