Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 4200
Source: Comp Reviews
Acer's TavelMate TM4200-4091 is kind of an odd man out in the budget notebook world. The design and specifications are not that much different than want one would expect to find in a budget notebook computer. It is the software that really sets this system apart from the others. While most budget notebooks rely on the consumer orient operating systems, Acer instead uses the Windows Vista Business Edition with this model of TravelMate 4200. This has some significant implications as to how the notebook with be used. For example, Vista Business does not include any of the media center features, DVD maker, games or photo features.

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).
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
