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 is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


1.4 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist only few sub-notebooks, which weight less. 10 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

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