Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 3000

76% Very light ultraportable has two batteries but an external-only optical drive
Source: PC World English
The Acer TravelMate 3000 comes with two batteries, is small enough that you can pick it up with one hand, and costs a reasonable $1299. On the other hand, it lacks a built-in optical drive, and the keyboard is uncomfortable. Unlike most notebooks, the TravelMate 3000 comes standard with two interchangeable (though not hot-swappable) batteries. To minimize the machine's weight and bulk, use the three-cell battery, which sits flush with the case.

Intel Pentium M: With Intel chip set (855 or 915) and Intel WLAN also available with the name Centrino (name for the package).
In the comparison very fast per megahertz and very modest with weaknesses in floating point operations.
It is also available as a low voltage version with very small current consumption.


740: » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


12.1":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.4 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.

76%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
