Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 3273WXMi

80% A good value notebook in an uninspiring chassis
Source: vnunet.com English
The Travelmate 3273WXMi is the latest entry in Acer's range of notebooks aimed primarily at business users. Its robust, silver chassis gives a good first impression, but open it up and things start to look slightly less spectacular. Inside is a large, unattractive dark grey plastic bezel surrounding the 14.1in screen which serves as an instant reminder to the notebook's budget nature.

Despite these slight drawbacks, there isn't a single thing about the Acer that fails it outright: it's a perfectly serviceable laptop with more than capable performance. What makes it stand out is the price - costing less than £600, this is a great choice for those looking for a budget machine for general use.

Comment

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


T5500:

Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.

14.1": 14 inch display size is a mixture between the small formats of subnotebooks and the 15 inch standard display. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.3 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 13 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
